the Royal Palace Man-At-Arms attempts to modify his Bashin' Beetle
vehicle. Orko arrives and begins to interfere with his work. A sudden
power surge surprises both Man-At-Arms and Orko. Man-At-Arms detects
that the source of the power surge emanating from the Sea of Rakash.
At Snake Mountain Evil-Lyn explains to Skeletor that the Coridite
crystal, long thought destroyed, still exists. Skeletor orders his
warriors to retrieve the crystal. At the Sea of Rakash, Man-At-Arms
begins his underwater search for the crystal while Prince Adam,
Cringer and Teela remain on dry land. Meanwhile Skeletor deduces
that Mer-Man has possession of the Coridite crystal. Man-At-Arms
arrives at the source of the recent power surge: Mer-Man's lair.
Man-At-Arms confronts Mer-Man and the villain's warriors begin to
attack. Man-At-Arms manages to grab the Coridite crystal, and hides
as Evil-Lyn and the other villains make their way to Mer-Man's lair.
Adam and Teela notice that Orko has vanished, much to Man-At-Arms
aggravation as Orko accidentally reveals Man-At-Arms' location to
the villains. Mer-Man is about to retrieve the crystal from Man-At-Arms,
when his giant fish ally swallows Man-At-Arms and the Coridite crystal.
Unexpectedly inside the giant fish the Coridite causes a mutation,
making the creature extremely powerful and dangerous. Inside the
creature the mutation causes its internal organs to attack Man-At-Arms.
The creature attacks a small village close to the Sea of Rakash.
Teela summons the other Masters to the Sea of Rakash, only to learn
from Orko that her father and the Coridite crystal are inside the
giant fish. Adam and Cringer quickly leave the scene and transform
into He-Man and Battle Cat. The Masters lead the creature away from
the village. They lead the creature into a dense forest where Teela
stands out in the open as bait for the creature. As the creature
roars He-Man leaps into the creature's mouth. Inside the giant fish
Man-At-Arms is swept further into the creature's stomach, and a
series of spiked walls form, one of which traps Man-At-Arms' leg.
He-Man finds Man-At-Arms and the Coridite crystal, and passes it
to Man-At-Arms. Both he and the crystal are lost when the creature's
internal body acid takes him further down. Man-At-Arms resurfaces
with the crystal. He-Man draws his sword to help pull his friend
to safety, but surprisingly the Coridite crystal reacts with the
sword and suddenly Castle Grayskull is revealed as the source of
great power. The giant fish begins to make its way toward Castle
Grayskull. The Sorceress watches as the creature plows through the
dense forestry. Man-At-Arms appears on Teela's Battle Hawk viewscreen
and commands her not to let the creature reach Castle Grayskull,
even if it means destroying the creature, thus killing him and He-Man.
The Masters all stand ready in defense of Castle Grayskull. As the
Masters are about the fire He-Man and Man-At-Arms emerge from the
creature's mouth. He-Man knocks the creature into the abyss surrounding
Castle Grayskull. The Coridite becomes unstable and Man-At-Arms
warns He-Man that it is about to explode. He-Man decides to try
and absorb the power through his sword. A massive explosion takes
place and when the smoke is cleared all that can be seen is a stone
statue of He-Man. The villains begin cheering thinking He-Man is
no more, but the hero escapes his stone-like state. At Snake Mountain
Skeletor claims that as a result of Teela's acceptance to sacrifice
her father in defense of Castle Grayskull he knows that something
of great power must dwell within.
and Orko are inside Castle Grayskull- Orko: "But what if you guys didn't get out
of the fish in time. You and Man-At-Arms could've..." He-Man: "I knew the risks Orko. But I wasn't
about to leave Man-At-Arms behind. No matter what. Friends stick
together through thick and thin. And being trapped in a creatures'
belly, well, it doesn't get any thicker than that." Orko: "Or slimier, or yuckier." He-Man: "Until next time."
