Edge of Disaster, Part 1 is the eighth episode of Season 2 of Dragons: Race to the Edge. It was released on Netflix on January 8, 2016.
When Ruffnut is captured by Dragon Hunters, it's up to Astrid and Tuffnut to defend Dragon's Edge from the invading Dragon Hunter army.
Astrid is frustrated with the twins' moronic methods in defending the Edge, and confronts Hiccup about it. But when he leaves to help Trader Johann from a mysterious attack, taking Fishlegs and Snotlout with him, Astrid is faced with staying alone at the base with the twins to build a watchtower. She's overcome with frustration at their way of doing things, and has a fight with them.
Meanwhile, Hiccup, Fishlegs, and Snotlout find Johann's ship is under attack by rogue dragons, not hunters. In trying to turn the dragons' attention elsewhere, Fishlegs is grabbed off of Meatlug's back by one of the dragons and carried off to their island. Hiccup, Snotlout, and Johann follow, hoping to save Fishlegs before he's hurt. But after saving a rogue Gronckle from choking, Fishlegs becomes a friend to the wild dragons, and soon notices that they've had encounters with hunters and their weapons. He assures his human friends that he's ok while Hiccup tries to figure out how to get him out of there.
Back at the Edge, Ruff is venting to herself after being yelled at by Astrid, and is suddenly captured by hunters. Tuff has to ask Astrid for her help in saving his sister, and Astrid has to get over her anger at the twins to do so, and find a way to defend the entire Edge with just one flyable dragon and Tuffnut. Astrid and Tuff must find a way to work together to save both Ruff and their home.
