Eretria, The Shannara Chronicles
Eretria (Ivana Baquero)
Fantasy drama The Shannara Chronicles follows the characters of Eretria, Wil and Amberle on their quest to save their lands from evil forces. Throughout the first season, the three are involved in a love-triangle. The show repeatedly hinted at a possible relationship between Eretria and Amberle, both on social media and in episode promos. The show’s executive producers called the triangle “incredibly complex with Eretria’s bisexuality, her attraction to Amberle and the mutual attraction for Wil”.
Despite this, nothing ever happened between Eretria and Amberle, as both have their eyes set on Wil and he became intimate with them both at different times. Eretria’s bisexuality is only introduced in a two episode arc, when she and Amberle are caught by the elf-hunter Zora, an ex-lover. Zora kidnapped Eretria but was later found dead (died off screen) and Eretria was rescued by Wil and Amberle.
After Wil and Amberle finally declared their love for each other, Amberle sacrificed herself to save her two friends, transforming herself into a tree. Meanwhile, Eretria was captured by trolls and brought to their apparent leader, with Wil vowing to rescue her (“I promised I’d go back for her, I’m not going to lose her too.”).
Season 2 will move to Spike TV and air fall 2017.
