Through Ruffnut and Tuffnut's mediation, Dagur and Mala actually get along and develop a mutual attraction for one another. Dagur leads Viggo's fleet away and swears to Heather that he will return to answer her questions, leaving his worried sister behind. Fishlegs manages to free the Quakens just as their poundings cause the island to sink and have them destroy the Hunters' stone base. Heather meets with the riders and informs them Viggo is after the Flightmare, but this proves to be a trap by Viggo to eliminate the riders and exposes Heather as a spy. By working together, Stoick and Hiccup are able to free the Riders and their dragons and repel Krogan's invasion. The riders and Berserker siblings battle, and despite Savage capturing Heather, still manage to defeat him, and Dagur, admitting Gustav's apprenticeship was faked to relieve Berk of him for a while, honors Snotlout with a Berserker trophy, though he purposefully gets his name wrong. When the riders find out they make it clear to him that he is too immature to become a rider, Gustav runs from the island in the night.
Back on Berk, Hiccup asks Gobber and Gothi about the device which he dubs 'The Dragon Eye' Gothi tells them that the key to unlocking the 'Dragon Eye' is a tooth from the Snow Wraith A Strike class Dragon that detects body heat as a form of sight. Worried, the Riders quickly check on Garffiljorg while the others take the injured Singetail back to the Edge for recovery. Though still doubtful, Hiccup and the others scramble to keep the siblings from noticing each other by sending Heather away while offering Dagur a Gronckle he names Shattermaster to get him to leave, but they cross paths anyway. He manages to pass two life-threatening trials but fails in the third, though Mala commends his effort and makes him a guest of honor in a celebratory feast. While everyone else especially Hiccup accepts her, Astrid isn't as sure of her intentions. Astrid and Ruffnut reconcile and the riders lead the wild dragons to a new home on the Edge. Hiccup wants to take the chance to enact revenge on Viggo for his underhanded attack on Berk without a plan, but is caught up investigating and surviving the aggression of a small pack of new dragons and their leader that have driven the Hunters from their observation post.
The other riders interrogate the hunters for information on their whereabouts and trick them into sending word to the arena and following the Terror to their location. The trio must now flee to release the Skrill from their control before the truce can be settled. Krogan is captured and executed by his employer, Drago Bludvist, for his failure in acquiring the egg and Drago begins to seek out a new Bewilderbeast. Stranded together on an island, Hiccup must find a way to reconnect and retrain his wayward dragon. He later double-crosses Dagur returning the Dragon Eye to Hiccup and saving both of them in the process. They attempt to escape but are captured again, and when Dagur proposes to kill them, Heather convinces Ryker to keep them as slaves.
Hiccup plans to use the Flightmare's mist to paralyze the hunters, but Viggo's advanced tactics allow him to escape with the Flightmare, Heather and Windshear as captives, leaving Hiccup to wonder about their dangerous new opponent. Despite Johann's attempts, Ruffnut and Tuffnut insist on accompanying them. Hiccup and Stoick admit their fault in taking on their burdens alone and promise to confide in each other as allies as well as family. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. Sullivan John Tellegen June 26, 2015 2015-06-26 Back on Berk Stoick has asked the riders to deal with a Scauldron which is in the waters around Berk. Hiccup credits Snotlout for a job well done and the twins reward him with a carving of his face in a monument back at the Edge.
Meanwhile, Gobber takes Gothi's place as the village healer, however he is far from good at it. Join Hiccup and Toothless as they team up with their brave human friends and loyal dragon allies to challenge never-before-seen creatures with incredible powers. Continuing his ruse as their ally, Johann suggests taking a trip to the Northern Market with Hiccup alone and that he bring both his Dragon Eye 2 and all of his lenses. He is not as courageous as the other Dragon Riders, but is a loyal friend, especially to Hiccup and Astrid. The riders are left only with the resolve to reclaim the Dragon Eye before he can use it.
The heads are usually agreeable, but can have difficulty flying when their riders disagree, and sometimes quarrel as a result. The teens have to stop the Screaming Death before it reaches Berk. Could it be she is working for Alvin and the Outcasts willingly or under duress? Though they receive reprimand, Astrid promotes them to full Riders with Gustav as the leader and remains on Dragon's Edge. Back on the island Astrid and Tuffnut manage to fend off the hunters' attacks and Heather keeps them from approaching on foot. The riders fear how many other slave dragons the hunters have while Viggo assures the riders will pay. That evening, the riders receive a letter from Dagur who says he is looking for Heather, and the riders promise to keep her location secret until she is ready.
During all this Fireworm dragons start arriving on the island as part of their migration; however being Fireworm dragons they start burning the island down. The Riders finally reclaim the Edge, but Astrid discovers Viggo is still alive and has recovered the Dragon Eye, but Hiccup is prepared as his new Dragon Eye is nearing completion. The second and third seasons of Dragons: Race to the Edge premiered on January 8 and June 24, 2016, respectively. Following him, the riders find that he has mated with a female Monstrous Nightmare. He later becomes an ally of Berk at the end of Season 2. Now, Hiccup must find a way to drive the Speed Stinger horde away from Berk before their next raid.
Toothless also has the unique ability to navigate in dark places using. Meanwhile, Snotlout, as a result of his saving Mala's life from the Hunters, undergoes The Trials, a series of tests to prove himself as King of the Defenders of the Wing. They care for baby Razorwhips who become their wings until they are old enough to fend for themselves because the adult males of the species would devour the infants and could drive the species to extinction. In the game, players do not die or otherwise fail. Ruffnut, however, is suspicious of Gruffnut's intentions, especially when he tries to fly off with each of the riders' dragons.
They agree that all the group are equal owners to the island and they in turn agree to help. Later, it was discovered that Fishlegs was allergic to Gobber's ear wax which he has been using on Meatlug's saddle. Just as Hiccup is left without any ideas on what to do, who to trust, or even how to handle his developing feelings for Astrid in the midst of growing danger, Viggo returns and offers the Dragon Eye as proof of his word and offers an equal alliance to bring Ryker down. He is rescued by the A team but is left in a state as a result of his injuries. Intimidated by Viggo's intelligence, Hiccup decides to take a more cautious approach against him, and discovers upon investigating his ship that Viggo has challenged him to a game of strategy with Heather's life as the prize.
And when they see the Changewings, they have to look at the Book of Dragons to identify it and learn about it, even though in the animated short they knew exactly what it does. Together they meet with Johan who reveals Dagur's plans to purchase new dragon-proof ships and weaponry, and they convince the riders to launch a surprise attack. Alongside keeping up with Berk's newest installment—A Dragon Training Academy—Hiccup, Toothless, and the rest of the Viking Teens are put to the test when they are faced with new worlds harsher than Berk, new dragons that can't all be trained, and new enemies who are looking for every reason to destroy the harmony between Vikings and Dragons altogether. Snotlout in turn is nearly killed by the aggressive female Razorwhips but is saved by the Riders and Wingmaidens who in the end celebrate their newly formed alliance, and Snotlout learns a lesson in etiquette. They eventually learn the Quaken's behavior was out of loneliness and defensive instinct, and allow it to remain and share the island with the Gronckles. Dagur is hunting for the Night Fury that he thought Hiccup battled. Help comes from an unlikely source when Dagur appears and guides Hiccup and Toothless to his hideout, where he explains that he has been living in exile since leaving the hunters and claims to be reformed.
