Spike Breathing Fire by StormCrow-42 ( CC by-nc-sa 3.0 ) Air date: 26 May 2018 Writer: Josh Haber Synopsis: "Spike struggles with a series of bizarre symptoms that Smolder explains is something all dragons go through in adolescence: 'the molt.' Smolder also reveals an unfortunate 'molt side-effect' that compels a molter's family to kick them out of the house!" This is Josh Haber's first episode of S8, and it's another that's been leaked, so please be extra careful about spoilers. Also our first Spike-sode of the season, although the little dragon did play a strong supporting role in "The Break Up Break Down". I've kept the US spelling of "molt" in the synopsis given that it's in the episode name -- it's the same word we spell "moult" over here. Anyway, there's a hint of Spike growing up here. "Secret of My Excess" showed a worrying version of that, so let's see how different this one is. Off we go! Please use spoiler-cuts until 24 hours after the episode has aired on Discovery Family. Thank you.
