LEGO's YouTube channel: After the mayor refuses to release Aspheera from prison to save Nya, the Ninja take matters into their own hands. With the help of Skylor, who temporarily keeps Nya from melting, the Ninja break into Kryptarium Prison to free Aspheera!
Is it the right decision to make a deal with Aspheera? Will the Ninja get back to the Ninja Cave before Nya melts?
In Ninjago City Hall, Mayor Ulysses Trustable plays mini golf in his office when Dwayne interrupts him. Dwayne explained that the ninja were here to see him, and Trustable gave excuses to not see them, but the ninja were already in his office. The ninja tried to get the mayor's permission to release Aspheera in order to restore Nya, but Trustable refused to allow Aspheera back onto the streets. After failing to come to an agreement, the ninja left Trustable's office.
At Kryptarium Prison, a disguised Kai, Lloyd, and Zane were able to get inside through a vent. Realizing there were sensors ahead, Zane decided to freeze Kai and Lloyd to lower their body temperatures so they would not be detected. He then picked up the two and was able to get by without being detected.
Concurrently, Jay and Cole were able to get into Borg Tower by disguising themselves as workers. They entered the elevator, but neither could remember the bypass code required to activate the elevator. Cole entered a code that Jay suggested, but it was incorrect and the elevator's security alarms went off. Both ninja blamed each other for not listening to P.I.X.A.L. when she gave the code. Realizing the elevator was not going to work, Cole opened a hatch on the elevator's floor and slid down the cables with Jay reluctantly following.
After getting through the sensors, Zane found the hatch closest to Aspheera's containment chamber. He then threw a shuriken at a button which activated the bridge leading to Aspheera's cell. Meanwhile, Aspheera was working on an origami snake and was surprised to see the ninja. The ninja offered Aspheera a chance for freedom if she helped the ninja restore Nya to her human form. Thinking about it, she agreed to help the ninja. Zane proceeded to drill a hole using a laser gun so Aspheera could get out of her cell. They shimmied upwards on the cable holding upwards on Aspheera's cell, when Aspheera's tail accidentally swiped Zane's laser cutter out of his hand. The laser cutter went off and a single shot ricocheted off multiple surfaces, slicing through the cable and caused the chamber to fall, thus sounding the alarm. The ninja scaled quickly with Kai being the first to the hatch, but he was met by multiple security guards.
Meanwhile, Skylor's powers were beginning to fade, so P.I.X.A.L. brought in a cooling unit to help Skylor out.
Back at Kryptarium Prison, the ninja and Aspheera were fleeing through the hallways from the guards. At the Borg Tower vaults, Cole and Jay opened the cell that they thought had Aspheera's staff, but was shocked to find out it was completely empty. At the hangar bay, Skylor's replicated powers continued to fade rapidly, so P.I.X.A.L. brought in another cooling unit. Skylor commented on how the ninja were supposed to be back hours ago as P.I.X.A.L. wondered where they could be.
