"Trapped in the Dark" is the thirteenth episode of the first season of DKH's Episodes.


Marceline is captured by an old nemesis of her father.


A mist descends into the cave of Marceline and a dark figure took her by surprise and she lost conscious. She awoken in a dark castle. She wasn't locked up or anything but when she looked up she saw a woman with a pale appearance, dressed completely in black, looking down on her.

Marceline asked why she had kidnapped her, and who she was. The woman introduced herself as Dark Princess, as she is known among others. She tolds she currently is in the Unknown Lands, a dark place that no one has ever want to enter. And those who did, never were seen again. However the reason why she kidnapped Marceline is because she wanted revenge on Hunson Abadeer.

Marceline asks what he ever has done wrong to her. She knows her father did a lot of bad things, but it shouldn't be that bad that someone is willing to kill his daughter. Dark Princess explains that she is doing this because Hunson killed her father on a brutal way. Marceline says he probably had a reason for it. Dark Princess didn't answer.

Marceline stood up and flew towards Dark Princess, who quickly disappeared into a dark corridor and spawned somewhere else. There she created a ball of dark matter in her hands and fired it towards Marceline, who got hit on the spot. Marceline asks what kind of being she is.

Dark Princess said that she is darkness itself. Marceline disagrees and says that there is light in everyone. Dark Princess becomes angered and continues throwing dark balls at Marceline. Marcy smirks knowing she pissed her off and evades the attacks and swipes with her claws at Dark Princess who falls back. Marceline kicks Dark Princess in her side and says she isn't going to drop to her level and leaves the Unknown Lands.

Back in Marceline's cave she sits on the couch with Finn and Jake and says that this is the reason why she missed last night's band practice. She luckily wasn't hurt or anything, but she knows that Dark Princess is one of those people who won't give up on their first try. And that is the small light inside of her, similar to how Finn never gives up on anything. Finn and Jake both nod ending the episode.
