Snake Mountain Skeletor concludes that somehow He-Man has managed
to obtain the power of the Elders. At Castle Grayskull He-Man is
fighting what appear to be Skeletor's villains. Orko pleads with
Man-At-Arms to help, and after much deliberation Orko flies into
battle, and protects He-Man by taking a blast to the chest. Man-At-Arm
reveals Skeletor's warriors to be robots with a holographic masking
device. Back at Snake Mountain a confused discussion takes place;
Beast Man's hound creatures recently picked up He-Man's scent, but
all they found was an item of clothing belonging to Prince Adam.
Skeletor considers He-Man's sentimentality to be his weakness, thus
concocts a plan to capture Prince Adam, luring the hero to Snake
Mountain. At the Royal Palace Teela continually scolds Prince Adam
for his recent departure when they fought Skeletor's Evil Warriors.
Man-At-Arms is working on two of his vehicles while Adam tells his
mentor of his recent problems having acquired the power. Man-At-Arms
states that not under any circumstance can Prince Adam reveal that
he is He-Man. Adam believes that if he steps up in battle in a big
way then He-Man may not be needed. Meanwhile Stratos stands before
King Randor and Queen Marlena requesting permission to journey to
his homeland of Avion. Stratos brings to their attention the recent
trade dispute between the Avionians and the Andreenids. King Randor
states that Stratos should be accompanied by one of the other Masters.
Prince Adam immediately volunteers. Mer-Man informs Skeletor that
Prince Adam and Stratos have been spotted crossing the Sea of Rakash.
Skeletor determines that they are on their way to Avion and will
have to pass through the Eye of Zahr-Kain. Just as Stratos and Prince
Adam are about to pass through the Eye of Zahr-Kain, they are ambushed
by the Evil Warriors. Adam is captured and Stratos left buried under
a rockfall. At the Royal Palace King Randor reads a message from
Skeletor, informing them that their son has been captured. As further
proof to a doubting Orko, the box contains Prince Adam's sword.
Man-At-Arms prepares Cringer and Orko to journey to Snake Mountain
and return the Sword of Power to Adam, while he works on a new project.
At the entrance to Snake Mountain Orko casts a spell on Cringer
so that his skin pigmentation resembles that of Panthor, and he
is able to enter Snake Mountain. Skeletor confronts Prince Adam
and creates a spell whereby large spikes emerge from the walls of
his prison and move towards him. Trap Jaw reports that He-Man has
just been sighted outside Snake Mountain. While Skeletor's Evil
Warriors fight He-Man, the Masters free Adam, just as Skeletor discovers
"He-Man" to be one of Man-At-Arms' robots. As the heroes
are leaving, Skeletor's warriors appear. Prince Adam wanting to
prove himself leaps into battle, but Whiplash grounds him with a
blow from his tail. Outside on a ledge they watch as Skeletor unveils
Tri-Klops' latest creation, built to Skeletor's specifications.
The Bone Monster knocks Man-At-Arms, Ram Man and Teela far below,
while Adam and Cringer transform into He-Man and Battle Cat. He-Man
and Battle Cat lead the Bone Monster into an area of land where
the lava is closer to the surface. The creature's weight is too
much and the ground collapses pulling the Bone Monster into the
lava. Just as He-Man is about to confront Skeletor the villain is
carried to safety by his Bat Fight-Pack. The Masters make their
way back to the Royal Palace, where Adam has learned a valuable
lesson; that He-Man will always be needed.
is in his laboratory- Man-At-Arms (Robot): "Just as Adam is secretly
He-Man, people aren't always necessarily what they seem." -"Man-At-Arms" is revealed to be a robot, as the real
Man-At-Arms repairs the robot- Man-At-Arms: "So don't be so quick to judge
others. They might surprise you, possessing abilities and strengths
not apparent to the naked eye." Man-At-Arms (Robot): "Until next time."
