|“Oh, we have seen no one for many years. We are the last tribe of the Ice. The others have fled south and soon, we too, must go.”|
After failing to persuade Grimfax into attacking the Formling Village and getting hungry, Vex attempted to steal some fish, only to be caught, and was forced to run away. The village is later shown as the eternal winter begins when Zane overthrows Grimfax and becomes the Ice Emperor.
Despite defending their village, the Ice Fishers sit around the empty Fire, freezing in the winter night. Kai continues to blame himself for not having his Elemental Powers before trying once more. This time, he is able to create the Fire, and the villagers chant "Fire Maker" due to his success.
Sorla tells Nya that her Elemental Powers can be useful even with frozen water. She tries to use them on snow but fails to do anything. Before she goes on another rage, Lloyd comes over to tell Nya that she and the Ninja should stay and protect the Great Lake while he would go get Zane.
Cole tells a few young children about Zane and Aspheera using puppets he had made from paper and sticks, resulting in one child fainting while the rest flee from the room, screaming. Cole complains to Kai, Nya, and Jay about what had happened, to which Nya reminds him that their adventures did not seem to be appropriate for the children.
Suddenly, Uthaug comes up to them, holding a piece of green cloth, which they found out it's from Lloyd before they soon state that he is now alone and that they cannot help him.
After feeling guilty of losing the Traveler's Tea, Cole leaves Great Lake in order to find the Traveler's Tree. However, he runs into a Yeti named Krag. Meanwhile, Boma and Uthaug returned to the village to tell the Ninja where Cole had gone.
Krag's roar can be heard from the village.
The Ice Fishers are attacked by Boreal who freezes everyone. When Cole, Jay, Nya, and Krag arrive, they see the damage done by Boreal and Kai blames himself for not stopping the fearsome beast. They then decide to venture after Lloyd by fixing the Land Bounty and attacking the Castle of Ice.
The village was freed from the ice when Zane is freed from his corruption. The Ninja soon returned to Sorla's house to brew the Traveler's Tea but needed something more potent. Cole remembers about the berry Krag gave him, which will work. With the portal open, the Ninja said their goodbyes, Akita kisses Lloyd and the Ninja returned to Ninjago.
