Snake Mountain Skeletor and Tri-Klops meet with Beast Man in his
beastly menagerie, where he shows the pair a creature called a Shadowbeast.
Skeletor delights in the fact that if he had an army of Shadowbeasts
he could easily conquer Castle Grayskull. Outside Snake Mountain
Beast Man explains that the Shadowbeasts hate light, concluding
that nighttime would be best for an attack. Tri-Klops interjects
questioning the light from the moon. Skeletor states that he will
find a way to use the Shadowbeasts, even if it means blocking out
the moon. Meanwhile at the Royal Palace Ram Man rams a derelict-looking
structure, not knowing it is an old well, and falls deep into it.
Inside the well Ram Man becomes anxious of the darkness. The Masters
manage to pull him up out of the well and to safety. At Snake Mountain
the Evil Warriors smash rock structures so that they block the surrounding
volcanoes. Because the small volcanoes act as safety valves, the
large volcano Mount Barathrum erupts, and the Evil Warriors watch
as the sky begins to turn black. Moments Later at the Royal Palace
a large ominous cloud begins to fill the skies. The volcanic rock
thrown out by the eruption begins to strike the Royal Palace. Man-At-Arms
tells the gathered Masters that the volcanic vents in Mount Barathrum
have been blocked, prompting Prince Adam and Cringer to transform
into He-Man and Battle Cat. Mekaneck spies that the Evil Warriors
and an army of Shadowbeasts are making their way towards the Royal
Palace. Upon realizing that Skeletor is going to attack Castle Grayskull
He-Man and Battle Cat speedily make their way through the Evergreen
Forest, where they are confronted by the Shadowbeasts. At the Royal
Palace Man-At-Arms realizes that Ram Man is afraid of the dark.
Ram Man reveals that when he was a young boy he got lost underneath
the Plains of Perpetua, where he was faced with miles of darkness.
At Castle Grayskull the Shadowbeasts climb the walls, as the Sorceress
sends a telepathic message to He-Man. As the heroes make their way
to the northern perimeter of the Royal Palace Skeletor's villains
attack throwing them from the Bashin' Beetle. The continued eruptions
cause the ground to break up, and Man-At-Arms watches in horror
as Teela, followed by Ram Man, fall into a chasm. Ram Man and Teela
awaken to discover that they have fallen deep into an ancient prison
compound. At Castle Grayskull the Shadowbeasts continue to claw
away at the jaw-bridge as He-Man arrives to battle Skeletor. The
Sorceress uses a vast amount of her power causing an awesome light
to pour fourth from the castle, as the Shadowbeasts flee in fear
of the light. He-Man punches the Terrordactyl, with Skeletor aboard,
far into the skies. He-Man and Battle Cat make their way to Mount
Barathrum. Meanwhile Ram Man and Teela are still searching for a
way out when they are confronted by a pack of Shadowbeasts. Teela
falls into a lower level of the compound. Ram Man rams through the
Shadowbeasts and jumps down into the lower level, saving Teela from
a Shadowbeast, as at Mount Barathrum He-Man, ripping open the volcano,
causes the eruptions to subside. At the Royal Palace Man-At-Arms
and Mekaneck are pleased when they see Ram Man emerge with Teela
in his arms. The Masters watch as the skies open and the Shadowbeasts
flee. Later Adam congratulates Ram Man on saving Teela, Ram Man
understanding the meaning of bravery, much to Man-At-Arms appreciation.
At Snake Mountain Skeletor locks his Evil Warriors in a pitch-black
room with the Shadowbeasts.
is in some caverns near the Royal Palace- Man-At-Arms: "Everyone has fears. But sometimes
fear can be a good thing. Our mind's way of telling us that something
isn't safe." -Man-At-Arms hears a roar come from one of the other caverns- Man-At-Arms: "See what I mean." -Man-At-Arms flees the caverns- Orko: "Until next time." -Orko appears from a cavern giggling to himself- Man-At-Arms: "Uh, yeah! Until next time!"
