"The Calm Before the Storm"
Extended: Kalmaar and Wojira arrive in Ninjago City, bringing forth a tsunami that floods the city - the ninjas leap into action, rescuing anyone unlucky enough to be left behind and trapped, and even Dareth springs forward as the Brown Ninja to help. Wojira attacks the Bounty and crashes it into the water, Jay's sub car is damaged and he sinks to the bottom without power, and Nya joins the battle to face Kalmaar head-on.
A tour bus goes around Ninjago City, visiting numerous landmarks and locations related to the Ninja’s numerous adventures. Dareth then asks what can be heard about the Brown Ninja, but his alter ego seems to be not known, which disappoints him. The alarm that was spread through Ninjago City soon goes off and a giant wave caused by Wojira rapidly floods the street that the bus is travelling on. Dareth starts leading everyone down, but an excited child is busy snapping selfies of the incoming wave, forcing Dareth to go back and rescue him. The bus driver is knocked off his seat behind the wheel, and Dareth jumps in as the new driver. The bus, now underwater, is thrown back and forth by the wave, causing a leak in the bus. Jay in his new sub car jumps in the ocean and saves the passengers on thee bus. As they come back to the surface, Dareth is pushed by a car and then is saved shortly by Nya, who greets him, he then uses the opportunity to boast about how the Ninja know him.
Gayle Gossip and her cameraman Vinny are recording Wojira as she terrorizes the city. Kalmaar spots the news recorder and is about to attack, but Wu, on the Destiny's Bounty, picks them before they can get hurt and starts making their getaway, with Kalmaar gives chase. In Benny's Arcade Emporium, now completely flooded with water, kids are locked inside trying to escape by prying open the tightly shut double glass doors. Lloyd comes to the rescue in an APS suit but Maaray Guards appear from his right and attack him. Zane, Kai and Benthomaar arrive to fend off the attacks, with Benthomaar trying to convince the Maaray Guards that Kalmaar is the bad guy, Cole arrives just in time and helps an outnumbered Kai and Zane. 2 people in a bathtub are attempting to escape Wojira by paddling on the surface of the water with their makeshift vehicle but the tub starts to fill with water through the plug hole, slowly sinking. The Bounty shows up just in time to help butare spotted by Kalmaar who gives chase. Under the sea, Bentho, Kai, Zane and Cole are still fighting the Guards, when P.I.X.A.L. calls Zane requesting help as they are being attacked by Wojira. The Ninja split up with Zane and Kai helping P.I.X.A.L and Bentho and Cole fighting the Guards.
P.I.X.A.L tells the people they saved to close their ears and starts shooting missiles at Wojira, only to do little damage. Kalmaar is angered and chases them faster and more aggressively. Lloyd jumps out of the sea to help P.I.X.A.L but is blown back into the sea by the sea serpent. Kai and Zane then attack her but to no avail. Wojira strikes the Bounty, about to attack again, Wojira is struck by Kai and Zane, she is then struck by Jay, who is attacked and is dropped in the ocean in a broken sub car. Nya strikes Wojira for Jay to escape, gives Kalmaar a stern look and tells him that this battle ends now. Kalmaar agrees and gets Wojira ready for battle.

- Narrator: Jay
- The scene where the waves spread through the city resembles the New York tsunami scene in The Day After Tomorrow.
- The gag where Kai repeats what Zane says but simpler could be a reference to the series Nexo Knights and the episode Miner Setback, in which General Garg says something, and a Gargoyle repeats it but much simpler.
- Dareth appears again after his absence in Master of the Mountain and The Island.
- He also makes note of his lack of involvement recently.
- Gayle Gossip and Vinny Folson getting so close to Kalmaar and Wojira is similar to their appearance in "Snaketastrophy."
- The Rise of Ninjago and Attack by Unagami events are mentioned.
- Patty Keys makes her first appearance since "Wishmasters".
- The Postman also appears in the episode as a background character.
- The Teapot of Tyrahn is briefly seen in this episode being washed away in the flood among other items in Ninjago City.
- The final shot of the episode, which has Nya and Kalmaar lunging toward each other, is very similar to the final shot of "The Upply Strike Back!", which has Cole and the Skull Sorcerer lunging toward each other.
- When Benthomaar trying to convince the Maaray Guards that Kalmaar was the one who killed Trimaar, is very similar in "The Ascent", which has Vania trying to convince the Army of Shintaro that Vangelis was lying to them
