|“Gilly returned to the surface. But before she went, she gave to us a parting gift. One was given to the noble Geckles. The other was given to the stinking traitorous Munce. A gift to help us, if ever another evil should return to our mountain.”|
|— Gliff, "The Two Blades"|
While Cole is working, he asks Gliff if there's any way out, but he simply replies no.
The rest of the ninja are able to rescue Cole as well as the two tribes, but they realize this and the Geckles and Munce start to fight with each other. In the end, Gliff and everyone else were recaptured by the Skull Sorcerer due to the fighting.
Murt gives the ninja some food, but Gliff tells Lloyd to not trust him which causes more conflict. The two then get into an argument before Lloyd breaks up the two. Lloyd then asks why the two tribes dislike each other and the rest of the ninja also ask.
Gliff tells the ninja about the two Blades of Deliverance: the Ivory Blade of Deliverance and the Shadow Blade of Deliverance. He said it was possessed by a powerful warrior named "Gilly" although Murt believes the name is "Milly". During the time when the Geckles and Munce were living in fear due to a dragon, the warrior went up and defeated the dragon. After "Gilly" defeated the dragon, "Gilly" gave the Ivory Blade of Deliverance to the Geckles while giving the Shadow Blade of Deliverance to the Munce. Gliff then starts to argue blaming the Munce for stealing the other sword while Murt thinks the opposite.
When they go back to work, Cole tells Gliff to inform everyone else on his tribe to meet at a specific spot and not to fight. However, when Gliff is trying to spread the news, the rest of the Geckles misinterpreted and think they are going to fight. They end up being disappointed that they're not going to fight, but Lloyd promises to get them the two blades back as long as the two tribes don't fight.
The ninja are able to break free from their cage and rescue Gliff and the Geckles.
