"A Meeting in Time" is the fifth episode of Wildfire season one. It aired on October 11, 1986 on CBS. It was written by Tony Marino and John Loy, directed by Don Lusk, and voice directed by Gordon Hunt.

Sara accidentally falls off Wildfire while in the portal to Dar-Shan, arriving in its past just before her mother and father are to marry. While there, she must convince her future mother that she cannot trust Diabolyn, whose malicious intentions in overthrowing Queen Sarana have yet to be revealed.

Detailed summary

Memorable quotes

Queen Sarana: You're evil, Diabolyn. By betraying me, you're betraying all Dar-Shan. You leave me no choice but to banish you from Castle Thorinia forever.
Diabolyn: Oh, really? Well, here's a little something to remember me by. I curse this marriage. You and Prince Cavan will have exactly one year together, and when that year has passed, you will lose your husband, your firstborn child, and Dar-Shan will lose the queen.
Queen Sarana: From this day forward a have no sister.

Behind the scenes

  • This is the first episode that connects John and Prince Cavan in being the same person.
  • It stands to reason that if Wildfire knew about his past encounter with Sara than so would Diabolyn.


  • It's unexplained why Diabolyn is so distrusting of Sara in the past despite her not having done anything yet.
