So, when Branch gets his color back, what is Bark's reaction? Is it Poppy or Bark who helps him gain his colors? Does Bark come along on the journey or is he kidnapped by Chef with the snack pack? What is Bark's relationship with Creek?
Let’s start near more at the beginning yeah?
So, Bark is close friends with Poppy and is of course, a member of the Snack Pack crew. His relationship with Creek is…Not that great and I wouldn’t say they are friends. They’re friendly enough with each other when they’re with the group, but Bark honestly didn’t entirely like Creek all that much since the purple troll tended to be very condescending to his brother – Which is something he does not appreciate. Bark can be quite protective of his twin and he gets very upset when Branch is talked about negatively or teased by Creek or by any other trolls in general.
In fact, Bark has a temper just like Branch and there had been times when a troll talked smack about Branch and Bark ended up chasing them around the village, threatening to smack them back to see how they liked it pfftt Point is, don’t ever talk badly about Branch in front of Bark cause he will fight you hahaha The villagers at least know to keep their Branch comments quiet around him.
In the film, Bark is actually one of the trolls that gets kidnapped. Prior to the party, Bark and Branch actually have a rather nasty fight about Branch’s behaviour towards Poppy earlier (the scene where he crushes the invite under his foot) and saying how he never goes out to parties and Bark expressed how he was sick of missing out on them (Bark sometimes didn’t go to parties because he didn’t want to leave Branch alone). Basically, it gets really intense during the fight and they both end up saying things that they didn’t mean but it still hurt the other very much emotionally. By the end of the fight Bark storms out and goes to the party anyway, leaving Branch alone. When Bark gets kidnapped, he ends up feeling really terrible about the fight he had with his brother and deeply regretted, that it was possibly their last ever interaction. He never even expected Branch to come out of his Bunker after Chef invaded. When Branch and Bark are reunited, though, both of them forgive each other over their fight in their own way and their relationship is mended.
Poppy is still the one to bring back Branch’s colours. Like the rest of the trolls he fades to grey when they lost hope and thought they were going to get eaten. But the moment Bark saw his brother’s colours return, his own colours were quick to return as well. To say the least, Bark was over the moon because for years he had tried so hard to try and cheer his brother up and try to bring back his colours. But everything he did never worked or made things worse. And even though Bark was never able to get his brother to regain his colours and happiness again, he’s just happy that there was someone else that could. And Bark always felt like, if anyone could change Branch, the princess surely would. He was glad he was right about that at least.
