and the Masters regroup away from Snake Mountain and fret that it
may be too late to stop Kobra Khan from freeing King Hiss. Zodak
confirms this to be true and tells of how his staff was stolen from
him. He-Man suspects that Zodak may have wanted the Snake Men to
be released. The pair square off as Zodak reveals his desire to
avenge his brother at any cost. At Snake Mountain, Kobra Khan declares
his loyalty to King Hiss. King Hiss then goes to repay Evil-Lyn
by eating her, as it is the greatest honor to be eaten by the King.
She manages to convince him otherwise by promising to take him to
gain the power of the Elders. The Snake Men depart for Castle Grayskull.
He-Man and Zodak see the Snake Men heading off, so they team together
to protect Castle Grayskull. The Snake Men arrive at Castle Grayskull
and attack. Zodak regains his staff from General Rattlor and pursues
King Hiss. King Hiss and Evil-Lyn combine their magic to penetrate
Castle Grayskull. Evil-Lyn is left outside as the King, the General
and Snake Face go inside. The Sorceress is attacked by King Hiss
and poisoned with his venom. He-Man and Zodak follow them inside
and find the infected Sorceress. Zodak goes to stop King Hiss from
gaining the power of the Elders while He-Man subdues Rattlor and
gets Snake Face to stare at his own reflection and petrify himself.
Zodak takes the beaten King Hiss to the top of Castle Grayskull
and throws him into the Abyss. His Snake Men leap after him to save
him. With King Hiss seemingly dead, Snake Mountain returns to its
previous state and Skeletor arises from the ground and restores
his men to normal. He then proclaims that Evil-Lyn is a marked woman
and will pay the price for her betrayal. Zodak heads for his home,
but leaves the Masters with no doubt that he will return if needed.
