Season 8, Episode 2: There’s A New Queen in Town

There’s a new queen in town! In this episode, the official beauty queen pageant begins between Esther and the rest of King Xerxes' harem, but trouble lurks around the corner. No one is here to make friends, including the king's officers, and it's up to Esther and her faithful protector Mordecai to uncover the conspiracy before it's too late.
