Talk about cliffhangers!  The unspeakable happened on Galavant tonight and we kind of can't handle it. 

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

More: Galavant: Has Madalena finally met her match?

One moment we're snapping to an amazing Westside Story homage on Galavant (and basically digging all of the Broadway homages dancing across our television screen), and the next we're screaming at our television screens and clutching our pearls because Sid stabbed our hunky hero in the chest! WTF?

Now, obviously ABC can't have a show called Galavant without the title character, so we know he's going to survive this terribly timed stabbing... right? We sure hope so... but man, that wound looked serious. So, if he's going to survive, how will it go down?

King Richard's dragon will save him

Get your mind out of the gutter, people. Yes, the two gents have developed a special sort of bond, but we're talking about the king's bearded dragon, er, lizard. Richard believes he's been given a baby fire-breathing dragon, but it looks pretty lizard-like to everyone else. It does have some funky yellow eyes though... maybe it's a magic lizard-dragon-hybrid that can heal sword wounds. Yes, that sounds good!

Sid will track down the dark wizard

Since Sid's new horse can do a five-days ride in one afternoon, it's not beyond the realm of possibility that he will ride back to Valencia and grab the dark wizard, Wormwood (who had, up until tonight, been working his evil magic on Isabella) and somehow convince him to heal Galavant!

Roberta will ride off to find a magic potion

Roberta has been saving the men from all kinds of things: giants that aren't giants, dwarfs that aren't dwarfs, each other, and, oh yeah, starvation... So she really is the most likely candidate to save Galavant. I wouldn't be surprised if she hopped on a horse and ran off to find a wizard or a doctor, while the rest of Galavant's posse runs around like chickens with their heads cut off.

Someone will sing a song that rewinds time

Listen, Galavant is a musical! And it's very self aware... so it's totally within the realm of possibility that next week's episode will open with the cast singing about how the writers messed up and that they need to rewind time now, and la-la-la... Galavant is saved!

His father could sew him up

One of the best moments of the night was when Galavant discovered his father has been commemorating Galavant's adventures through tapestry: "You know us old-school knights! We can only express our true feelings in tapestry." So, now that we know he's a wizard with a needle and thread, perhaps he will be able to sew up our hero's wound!

The unicorn will return to heal him

Oh, please let the unicorn come back! I don't think I'm the only one loving King Richard's animal loving side... so how fun would it be to reunite King Richard with his one-horned suitor, only to find out that it can heal sword wounds with its tears or something?

It's only a flesh wound

Perhaps it's not as bad as it looks. It could just be a little stab wound... just a little sword in the chest... nothing to get this excited about. We could be pulling our hair out over nothing, right? Eh, probably not.

But something awesome better happen to heal out hero, and fast! He's still got to raise an army, storm Isabella's castle, and convince the princess that he still loves her so that they can sing and dance off into the sunset together! Preferably without that clumsy Sid stabbing anyone else...
