“Endings are never really endings, only new beginnings.”

Endings is the fourth and final episode of the tenth season of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and the 98th episode overall. It aired in New Zealand on February 9, 2019, the United States on April 19, 2019 as a film, and Canada on April 27, 2019.

Synopsis

The ninja race back to the Monastery of Spinjitzu. This is the last stand. The final battle against the Oni is now. Will their joined Spinjitzu powers defeat the Oni for good, or tear apart Ninjago itself?[1]

Extended: At the Monastery of Spinjitzu, everyone is preparing for the final battle. Kai recreates the Four Golden Weapons which is their last hope in defeating the Oni. Flying in on the Earth Driller, Cole reunites with the ninja to master the weapons. Lloyd gets the idea to form the powerful Tornado of Creation. Side by side, all unite around the plan to conjure their Spinjitzu tornado, including Lord Garmadon. And one by one, the Tornado grows into the Tornado of Creation. In an epic moment, Creation and Destruction balances out - and all turns white. In a heavenly state, Lloyd has a profound moment with the maker himself: the First Spinjitzu Master. Everything turns to normal, and the balance is restored once again.[2]

Plot

Now in better condition, Faith tells the story of how the Oni suddenly returned to the Realm of Oni and Dragons, and the Dragon Hunters were unable to fight back, forcing Faith and Firstbourne to flee to Ninjago. Wu and Misako try encouraging Faith that it was best for her to flee than fight. Moments later, the ninja return, informing Wu that Cole is gone and the Realm Crystal's destruction did not stop the Oni. Garmadon then arrives, telling Wu to use the Golden Master's armor to stop the Oni. Nya proposes that Kai uses his element to reforge the Golden Weapons, which he promptly does. After distributing the weapons, the monks warn of the Oni's arrival at the monastery.

In Ninjago City, Cole awakens, having survived the fall from the Bounty. He manages to remotely activate and drive the Earth Driller to his location and bears the brunt of the Oni darkness to make his way to the vehicle. At the monastery, the ninja, Wu, Faith, and Lord Garmadon unite to hold off the Omega's Oni legions. A battle begins outside the monastery, with the Oni steadily overwhelming the ninja and their allies until Cole returns in the Earth Driller. Overjoyed by his return, the ninja gain a second wind and continue the battle. Unfortunately, the powers of the Golden Weapons are still not enough to stop the Oni; even the Omega manages to beat down both Garmadon (briefly in his temporary Oni form) and Lloyd, taunting the former of his desire to regain his humanity. Realizing they are losing the fight, Lloyd drags his father up the steps and urges his allies to retreat within the monastery.

As the gates are sealed, Jay finally asks Nya to be his Yang, as Kai and Cole criticize him for his timing. She excitedly agrees to his request, much to the others' delight. Lloyd looks at the Ninjago history mural and proposes that they reignite the Tornado of Creation to condemn the Oni. Despite Lloyd's pleas, Garmadon refuses to help them, though the tornado requires them to be united. With their combined Spinjitzu, Wu and the ninja ignite the tornado after the Oni break through the gates. Despite his hesitance and after seeing a painting of Lloyd getting wiped by one of the Oni tentacles, Garmadon ultimately does Spinjitzu and completes the Tornado of Creation—which vanquishes the Omega and his army of Oni.

The First Spinjitzu Master meeting Lloyd

In a dreamlike state, Lloyd awakens and is greeted by the First Spinjitzu Master in a grassland. He thanks Lloyd for his continued efforts to save Ninjago, and offers him a choice—to come with him to a secretive place, or continue to protect Ninjago. Lloyd seems to decline the former offer.

The ninja are then shown waking up from their state of unconsciousness inflicted by the Tornado of Creation, except for Lloyd, who has been crushed by falling debris. The First Spinjitzu Master sends a petal from the grassland, which floats over Lloyd and brings him back to Ninjago, much to the joy and relief of his friends. Lloyd attempts to tell them that he met the First Spinjitzu Master, but they believe that his brain is simply addled from being hurt.

Meanwhile, Ninjago, the Realm of Oni and Dragons, and their inhabitants had been purified from the darkness. While everyone is celebrating, Garmadon leaves the monastery while Wu bids his brother farewell.

Sometime later, Karlof, Ronin, Skylor, Cyrus Borg, Dareth, P.I.X.A.L., and others watch as the ninja put their handprints on the Ninjago history mural, as Firstbourne flies overhead.

Trivia

  • Bragi Schut stated that this episode was one of his favorite episodes to write.[3]
  • By counting the two pilot episodes, this is the 100th episode of Ninjago ever produced. "Day of the Departed" is not considered an episode by the writers, but if it was counted this would be the 101st.
  • This episode marks the last of a few things:
    • This is the last episode to be animated and produced by WILFilm ApS.
    • This is the final episode of the Oni Trilogy[4] that began with Sons of Garmadon and continued throughout Hunted and March of the Oni.
    • This episode is also the last to be 22-minutes in length and the last to be released under the Masters of Spinjitzu subtitle.
    • This episode's title may be a reference to these facts.
  • The first scene of this episode, where Faith explains what happens in the Realm of Oni and Dragons, appears in "The Darkness Comes" when March of the Oni aired in the US as a TV movie.[5]
  • The writing at the end of the episode is "The End" written in Ninjargon.
  • According to Wikipedia, "In Ancient Chinese philosophy, yin and yang is a concept of dualism, describing how obviously opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another."[6] Besides Jay and Nya's relationship, the relations between the Oni and the Dragon and the balance between good and evil are all related to Yin and Yang.
  • An original idea for the ending had Garmadon flying away on Firstbourne with the four Golden Weapons to create a new realm as the First Spinjitzu Master had done.[7]

Cultural references

  • The scene when Lloyd meets the First Spinjitzu Master is similar to the scene when Harry Potter meets Albus Dumbledore in J. K. Rowling's novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as they are both scenes in which the main protagonist meets a deceased person and are given a choice to come with them or not.
  • The scene in which Cole makes his way out of Borg Tower for the Earth Driller is similar to the scene when Batman dives into the Cloudburst to repair the Batmobile in Rocksteady's game, Batman: Arkham Knight, as they are both scenes in which the protagonist is forced to enter a city covered in dangerous clouds in an attempt to reach the safety of their vehicles.

Continuity

Errors

  • When Jay proposes to Nya, Garmadon is close behind her. However, when Nya accepts Jay's proposal, Garmadon is nowhere to be seen. Yet, when everyone looks back at the doors the Oni are pounding on, Garmadon is next to Nya again.
  • Garmadon is still credited as "Emperor Garmadon" in the credits, despite no longer having control over Ninjago City.
  • When the ninja run out of the monastery, Kai is seen in his blacksmith suit, but a few shots later, it disappears.
  • When Cole is looking out the window for his drill in Ninjago City, one shot shows him without eyebrows.
  • In the shot directly after Lloyd wakes up, Jay and Nya's Yin-Yang medallions are not on their chests. This is corrected by the next time they are seen from the front.
  • During the mural scene at the end of the episode, Faith is shown wearing her hat, but later on, she is shown without her hat.
  • In the shot where the ninja are staring down the Oni, Lloyd has his sword, which he is not meant to have in this episode. It later reappears before he forms his Spinjitzu tornado, but then mysteriously disappears after that too.
  • When the Oni arrive, Kai takes the Scythe of Quakes but does not have the Sword of Fire. When the ninja are preparing to battle, Kai has his sword and Nya has the scythe.
  • Nya says that she is unable to use the Scythe of Quakes due to her not being a Master of Earth. However, other characters, like Wu, Garmadon, Samukai, and Kai were able to use the other Golden Weapons despite not being an Elemental Master of the Weapons' respective elements.
  • When the ninja yell, "Ninja-go!", Wu is seen yelling it as well, but his voice is not heard.
