Synopsis

The dramatic conclusion of the Never-Realm saga, in which old friends are reunited and the power of friendship is pitted against the corrupting power of the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu...[1]

Plot

Lloyd confronts Zane in the Castle of Ice. Akita is curious that Lloyd knows the Emperor and that he is the friend he is looking for. Despite this, she still tries to destroy him. Lloyd stops her and they argue with each other until Zane smacks them both down and a battle ensues between them. Grimfax and Kataru fight their own battle against Vex and the Blizzard Samurai, but they are soon captured.

Meanwhile, Nya discovers that Boreal is made of pure ice, leading Jay to think that the Ice Emperor is an Elemental Master of Ice. However, Nya cuts in, realizing that Zane is the Emperor, which horrifies her friends. They try to reason with the conclusion, but Nya reminds them that Zane was holding the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu when banished, and Cole mentions its corruptible power would twist Zane’s mind. Seeing her point, the Ninja realize that Lloyd is in danger and they must warn him of Zane, but Boreal awakens and attacks them again.

Boreal blasts his ice out at them, scattering the Ninja and Krag. Kai is knocked out and Nya tries to wake him up. But before she can do so, Boreal approaches her, forcing Nya to calm herself and learning how to master control over ice. She brings down multiple stalactites on Boreal and Cole and Jay congratulate her, but Boreal emerges out. Nya apologizes, but Kai wakes up, angry at the dragon and gaining his full powers back and destroys Boreal, melting him.

Back at the castle, Lloyd resists Zane as much as he can, but Zane chases him down and eventually freezes Lloyd. Akita shouts in worry for him and throws her dagger at Zane, but Zane knocks it aside and freezes her, to Lloyd’s dismay. Lloyd pleads to Zane but the latter says he is not Zane before Vex arrives just as Zane finishes defeating Lloyd. Lloyd repeats his name, begging him to stop, which causes Zane to hesitate. Impatient, Vex decides to do the job himself, taunting on Lloyd's failure of not being able to protect anyone. Zane overhears the word "protect," remembering the purpose of why he was built for: To protect those who cannot protect themselves. All his memories rush back to him, including who he really is and all the events that led him to end up in the Never-Realm. Himself once again, Zane impedes Vex’s attempt to kill Lloyd and smacks him away before destroying his scepter, lifting the curse from the realm.

Zane helps Lloyd up, who is happy to see that he has regained his memories. Enraged, Vex tries to attack Zane and Lloyd, only for Zane to freeze him in place. The rest of the Ninja, Krag, Kataru, and Grimfax reunite with their friends. Akita has a touching reunion with her brother while the reconnect with Zane.

In the end, Akita narrates the ending of the Ice Emperor's rule by explaining how she was happy that she reunited with Kataru, Grimfax was king once more, Vex was banished to the outskirts and how the Ninja returned home, with Sorla's help. But in order for the Traveler's Tea to work (since not even the tea leaves from the Never-Realm can work), she needed something potent, and Cole hands her the berry he had been saving which will work.

Back at the Monastery of Spinjitzu, P.I.X.A.L. interrupted Wu's thoughts, bringing him out to investigate a mysterious portal. Once they realized it was the Ninja, Wu and P.I.X.A.L. were overjoyed to see Zane and wait for Cole and Lloyd to return. Krag hugs Cole as his friend bids him goodbye and Akita kisses Lloyd on the cheek before he leaves. Akita is sad to see Lloyd leave so Kataru tries to cheer her up by taking her out for another run. She remarks how her brother thinks Lloyd will never return, but she believes that she will see him again, just not for a very long time.

Notes

  • Narrator: Lloyd
  • Boreal is revealed to have been created by Zane with his Elemental Power.
  • Zane destroying his scepter, ending the Eternal Winter and restoring the Never-Realm is similar to when Kai destroyed the Staff of Elements, restoring the Elemental Powers to their users in "The Forgotten Element."
  • Akita kisses Lloyd on his cheek.
    • The way Akita kisses Lloyd is similar to how Harumi kissed Lloyd's cheek in "The Quiet One," only whereas her kiss was for a distraction, Akita's kiss was a thank you and a goodbye to Lloyd.
    • This also reveals that Akita may have developed a crush on Lloyd, after witnessing his courage and skills, as well as his never-ending faith in Zane, no matter how evil he was.
  • Boma and Uthaug also appear in this episode, but do not speak.
  • When Zane regains his memories, these former memories in Season 11 are shown:
  • Grimfax being restored onto his throne is similar to the episode "Never Trust a Human" on how Mambo the Fifth was restored to his throne: both being overthrowed by antagonists and both protagonists were cheered by their people and were punished for their crimes.
