To make matters worse, Fairy Godmother shows up to remind the king of a bargain they had made to have Fiona married to her son, Prince Charming. With the aid of Puss-in-Boots, the king decides to have Shrek eliminated. But Shrek and Donkey prove far smarter than he gives them credit for, and Prince Charming resorts to his own tactics to steal Fiona away from Shrek.
