|Tuffnut breaks his beloved mace trying to break the Hunters' newest chains, and the twins go to the Hunter-swarmed Northern Markets to replace it. Using their 'twintuition,' the twins follow the repaired and stolen Macey to find a hidden hunter operation called 'Project Shellfire.' Tuffnut, who deeply cares for his mace, tries to take it back on his own, while Ruffnut is captured by Viggo and Ryker to be used as bait for a trap for the others. Tuffnut learns to put the needs of the team before his own and saves the others by sacrificing his Macey and freeing the others. The twins hold a funeral for Macey back on the Edge, where Tuffnut reveals stolen schematics that leave the riders worried for what 'Project Shellfire' entails.|
|90||11||"Blindsided"||T.J. Sullivan||Art Brown & Douglas Sloan||February 17, 2017|
|A freak lightning storm hits the Edge and while trying to rescue the dragons from the pens, Astrid looks into a stray bolt and ends up blinded. She joins the riders in searching for the dragons who were scared off by the storm, but her stubborn and fiery attitude makes things tough when they run into the aggressive and still untrained Triple Stryke. Fearing the possibility her condition may be permanent and her Shield Maiden days are over, Astrid still manages to use her other senses to figure out the Triple Stryke's weakness and finally train it. Astrid gains her sight back thanks to Gothi and she and Hiccup enjoy a perfect moment together, finally beginning their relationship.|
|91||12||"Shell Shocked: Part 1"||Robert Briggs||Art Brown & Douglas Sloan||February 17, 2017|
|After months of planning, Hiccup has come up with a fool-proof plan to defeat Viggo once and for all and finally reclaim the Dragon Eye. The riders and their allies storm his base, only to find it in ruins along with an injured Viggo. He reveals that Ryker has taken charge of the Hunters and offers to surrender the Dragon Eye in return for Hiccup's help in stopping Ryker, but escapes during an attack on the Defenders of the Wing, leaving the riders with the baby Eruptodon in their care. When the riders find Ryker, he tells them that Viggo is setting them up and he can give them the Dragon Eye as the Berserkers are attacked by the Shell Fire, a giant sea dragon equipped with Hunter weaponry. 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.|
|92||13||"Shell Shocked: Part 2"||Gil Zimmerman||Art Brown & Douglas Sloan||February 17, 2017|
|Even with the Eye returned, Hiccup and the others still refuse to trust Viggo and imprison him just as Ryker arrives with the Hunters' fleet. The riders find out the Hunters are forcing the Shell Fire to attack but are unable to get close as the attacks trigger the Edge's volcano. Hiccup rescues Viggo from his burning cell and agrees to work together to stop Ryker by using the Submaripper, the Shell Fire's natural enemy, to destroy the fleet while the Defenders' baby Eruptodon helps control the volcano's lava flow. The Shell Fire is freed and Ryker is consumed with the fleet by the Submaripper, while Viggo turns on Hiccup threatening to kill Astrid in exchange for the Dragon Eye, but Hiccup throws the Eye into the volcano and Viggo rushes to his doom chasing after it. Hiccup and Astrid realize their relationship compromises their mission and promise to remain professional as the other riders finally learn their secret cementing their relationship. Just as they leave, however, the volcano erupts.|
