Extended: Master Wu prevents Aspheera from leaving by agreeing to a series of trials, but the Ninjas return just in time with Aspheera's staff. When the police arrive, the Ninjas battle the New Ninjas to buy Aspheera time to drain Nya of her elemental powers. Nya's humanity is restored, but as Aspheera escapes in the chaos, she receives an invitation to the Council of the Crystal King - and the Ninjas are arrested.
LEGO's YouTube channel: While the Ninja are late in returning the magic staff, Master Wu must keep an impatient Aspheera busy with a series of contests. Later, when the Ninja arrive with the staff, they have a new problem. Aspheera is having second thoughts and the New Ninja infiltrate the Ninja Cave!
Can the Ninja stop the New Ninja while Aspheera tries to revive Nya before it's too late?
At the hangar bay, Skylor was struggling to keep Nya frozen intact. P.I.X.A.L. informed Wu that the ninja collected Aspheera's staff and were on their way back, so they needed to stall Aspheera before she got board. Meanwhile, Aspheera was looking around and after pressing a few buttons, she found the Golden Weapons. She tried to take them, but Wu got in his way. Aspheera was board she couldn't do anything and was trying to leave, but Wu prevented her from leaving. Aspheera promised she wouldn't leave if she could challenge Wu in a series of contests. Despite it sounding silly, Wu accepted participating in the contests.
Aspheera and Wu lifted weights, arm wrestled, played pool, did a staring contest, and flipped pancake with Aspheera winning all of the contests. After competing with Aspheera, Wu returned to the hangar bay only to see Skylor's powers run out and the coolers to blow up. Luckily, Zane arrived and freezed her. Lloyd then gave the staff to Aspheera, but instead of using it on Nya, she attacked the ninja.
The ninja dodged Aspheera's attacks with Lloyd wondering how she could betray the ninja so quickly. While they are fighting, the police arrived at the monastery and Aspheera believed they were after her. However, Kai and Zane confessed they revealed their identities when they were trying to retrieve Aspheera's staff and the police were after them instead. Aspheera freaked out believing they would all go to prison, but Lloyd revealed a secret tunnel out of the hangar bay. Aspheera demanded for the tunnel, but Lloyd would only show her if she saved Nya first. Aspheera bitterly agreed and began taking Nya's powers.
While the ninja watched, the New Ninja entered the hangar bay. The ninja saw them and after a verbal argument began fighting them to give Aspheera more time. Meanwhile, Aspheera commented about how powerful Nya was and not knowing the consequences of draining her powers. Just as she finished her sentence, a shockwave swept from Nya causing everyone to be knocked out.
Some time later, Nya was back in her human form and Jay ran over to see if she was alright. At the same time, Lloyd escorted Aspheera to the secret tunnel and allowed her to escape. Lloyd then turned himself in with the rest of the ninja as they're happy to see Nya back.
After Aspheera left the hangar bay, she returned to the pyramid making origami. Soon, she is greeted by three crystal spiders with a hologram being projected by one of the spiders. The Kabuki Mask asked if she was interested in joining the Council of the Crystal King to exact revenge, and she happily accepted.

- Narrator: Wu
- This episode includes a pancake-flipping contest, first mentioned on Reddit by a WildBrain animator.
- Nya is drained of her elemental powers, restoring her humanity.
- Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane and Lloyd are arrested by the New Ninja for breaking Aspheera out of prison.
- Aspheera escapes and returns to her pyramid, only to join the Council of the Crystal King by a masked individual.
- When Aspheera betrays the ninja and shoots a blast of energy at Wu, Zane saves him by pushing him to the side, while he manages to save himself too. This is a reference to the same situation in "Vengeance is Mine!" where Zane failed to save Wu from Aspheera's blast and was banished to the Never-Realm.
- This episode marks the first appearance of the Golden Weapons since "Endings".
- Wu's cape is missing after Zane tells him Kai revealed their identities after he yelled his name out loud.
- At around 1 minute and 23 seconds, when Aspheera is patting the top of her origami snake, the lower segment slightly clips through it.
