In the TV series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, a dark and terrible discovery has been made in the shadows of the Castle of the Crystal. Entrusted with guardianship of the great Crystal itself, the Skeksis have abused their power and the Gelflings in their service. Under the direction of the Emperor, SkekSo, the Crystal’s lifegiving properties have been cruelly exerted by the Skeksis to stretch their own vain lives.
The Emperor will stop at nothing to preserve the absolute power upon which he thrives. When word of the Skeksis’ betrayal escapes, he puts into effect a vicious and far-reaching plan. Gelfling clans are pit against one another and the Skeksis plot against their peers, but is there an even darker secret underpinning the cunning Emperor’s schemes?
