Synopsis

The Ninja finally return home and unite to stop Emperor Garmadon, forcing Lloyd to make a decision that will forever change Ninjago.

Plot

As Lloyd's group tends to an injured Nya, Ultra Violet and the Sons of Garmadon surround and attack them. As they're being overpowered, a large portal opens in the sky, catching everyone's attention. Emerging from it are Wu and the Ninja who return on their newfound Dragons. They see the city's state and wonder where their friends are as Nya contacts Kai to tell them that they need help. Zane tracks the frequency and the ninja move to regroup with the others, Dareth and Nya are happy to see the Ninja back with dragon power while Lloyd is very excited they held out to reunite with the others. The Sons of Garmadon are scared by the dragons and run off but Zane's Ice Dragon freezes many of them in place while the other dragons dispatch the remainder. The Firstbourne lands as Wu dismounts from her, Lloyd and Nya are amazed to see Wu has aged into a teenager and by his armor as he voices his support in defeating his brother.

The group reconnect with hugs and the Ninja are updated, as to what happened to The Resistance and Mistaké. Dareth tells his sulking friends to have a final fight against Lord Garmadon, which is accepted. Wu and Lloyd head off intending to face Garmadon, while the Ninja evacuate the remaining citizens in the area. These acts cause the people to see their protectors have returned. Dareth even becomes recognized as such when he comes across reporter Gayle Gossip and her cameraman being harassed by the Sons of Garmadon. Dareth stops to help but is taunted by the villains who advance on him as he charges at them but slips on a rock and ironically takes them down, saving the civilians. He asks if it was caught on camera and is pleased with this as he leaves while Gossip is left fawning over him for the rescue.

The resistance breaks out.

In Kryptarium Prison, a grunt from the Sons of Garmadon frantically informs his comrades that the Ninja have returned to Ninjago. Overhearing this, the imprisoned civilians and Elemental Masters regain hope and desire to help the ninja. They start shouting "The resistance never quits." since they are now inspired to break free. Ronin, Karlof, and Griffin Turner cause a riot in the prison before releasing their friends from the cells.

Back in Ninjago, Wu and Lloyd fly the Firstbourne to Borg Tower, while Cole, Kai, Jay and Zane fly their Dragons

Garmadon vs. Wu and Lloyd.

during a battle against the Colossus. Wu and Lloyd search for Garmadon, who remarks about the "family reunion" before labeling them his enemies. Suddenly, he appears from the shadows and starts fighting them. Lloyd is overpowered, while Wu continues fighting against his brother using their father's sword. Wu condemns him for his actions on the city, as Garmadon ignores him and says Wu can't stop him as the latter agrees by saying he can hold him. At that moment, the Firstbourne intervenes and encases Garmadon in molten rock - however, he breaks free, and unleashes a shockwave of destructive energy. Wu is flung from the tower, though is saved by the Firstbourne. Lloyd is left to face his father alone.

Garmadon battles his brother.

The Ninja continue fighting against the Colossus, using Vengestone Chains to try and incapacitate it. However, the chains are ineffective, and they eventually run out of them. Kai jumps onto the Colossus and begins binding the chains together even tighter. On the tower, Garmadon continues fighting his son. Lloyd tries urging his father to change his ways, but his corrupted soul has no redemption in sight; he proclaims that people don't change, they only reveal who they truly are.

Lloyd regaining his powers.

In the city, the Ninja run out of chains and wonder what to do before Firstbourne returns and Wu fires his chain gun at the behemoth as the Ninjas' allies return to the city to help defeat the Colossus. They bring it to its knees, ending the threat. Back at the tower, Lloyd realizes he's unable to defeat his father, who is only empowered by their fight, and he uses one of his father's lessons to resist him—by avoiding Garmadon's blows, he fights without fighting. As Lloyd uses the tactic, the Ninja and their allies incapacitate the Colossus using the chains, and it falls to the ground. Garmadon tries shooting blasts of destructive energy, but is soon unable to—as his power vanishes, Lloyd's Element is finally restored. As a result, the Colossus crumbles apart. Defeated, Garmadon tells his son to finish him off, but Lloyd refuses to. Garmadon ominously states that it's not over, but it will be when "they" come, and nothing will be left. Following the battle, the Sons of Garmadon are arrested, along with Lord Garmadon, as Ninjago is free from his reign.

Surprise

The citizens and The Fold standing before the Ninja.

Several days later, the Ninja clean up the Royal Palace before Wu tells them there's trouble. The Ninja run out of the palace and find a crowd congratulating their victory. As the Police Commissioner states that the citizens wanted to personally thank the Ninja for saving the day. As the heroes celebrate, Nya invites Skylor, Dareth and P.I.X.A.L. up since they also made it possible to save the city. The celebration goes on, as Cole dines on cake while the others Nya and Jay, Zane and P.I.X.A.L., as well as Kai and Skylor, share a loving reunion. 

Later that night, Lloyd finds Wu on the palace's roof, saying "goodbye" to the Firstbourne before she returns to the First Realm. Lloyd is unnerved by Garmadon's warning, and wonders if the Oni truly are coming.

Notes

  • All the prisoners of Ultra Hunt break out of Kryptarium Prison and assist the Ninja in defeating Colossus, including those not captured like the Postman and Rufus MacAllister.
  • Lloyd regains his powers in this episode.
  • The Sons of Garmadon, including Garmadon, are arrested.
    • Killow is not seen, leaving his whereabouts unknown.
  • LEGO versions of The Fold appear in this episode.
  • Garmadon loses his power while Lloyd regains his own.
    • Because of this, the Colossus is destroyed as well.
    • Additionally, Skylor's poison wears out.
  • Garmadon warns Lloyd that "they" are coming, and his powers were the only thing keeping them in check. Now that he's powerless, "they" will come. He later stated this in a tone that clearly shows a plead to be trusted. This seems to imply that Garmadon may have staged the whole fight to prepare Lloyd to battle the oncoming darkness by making him able to defeat him but he was clearly not holding back, so as to make Lloyd truly evolve and only did not kill him instantly and never hesitated or relented in his attacks. Also to further support this, whenever Garmadon gains the upper hand, he never follows through and kills Lloyd and instead even if harshly saves him and mocks him to encourage him to gain the strength to overpower him.
    • At the end of the episode, Lloyd tells Master Wu he thinks "they" are the Oni.
    • To add to this, in the Russian language the word "they" translates to Oni.
  • Now that the entire Ninja team are back together, they all revert back to wearing their Season 8 suits.
  • This episode is the only episode for the Marooned Ninja to wear their masks.
  • At the end of the episode, Master Wu is an old man again, but still sounds slightly more youthful (like in The LEGO Ninjago Movie), and is no longer wearing the Dragon Armor. He is wearing his first attire again back in the Pilot.
    • However, the Firstbourne probably took it back with her to the First Realm or most likely Wu still has it.
    • Present-day Wu was last seen as an old man in "Lost in Time."
  • One of the civilians in this episode reuses Mistaké's face sculpt despite being a different character.
  • Kai and Skylor are together now.
  • The Ninja are fully reunited for the first time since "Big Trouble, Little Ninjago."
  • This is the only episode in the entire season where the setting is only in the city.
  • The Great Devourer and The Overlord were mentioned by Jay.
  • Garmadon is still in his evil form. It is unknown if or when he will be changed back to being good.
  • When Zane says they need thicker chains, it's a reference to when Clouse says that in "Versus."
  • Lloyd uses the Art of the Silent Fist when he fights Garmadon, ironically, using his own fighting style against him.
  • At the end, when Lloyd called Wu Master Wu, Wu also called him Master Lloyd.
  • Gayle Gossip might now have a crush on Dareth.
  • Gossip asking Dareth who he was refers to the famous meme in the Spider-Man movie in 2012.
  • This is the second time Lloyd says a statement that greatly impacts Garmadon, the first being, "The Resistance never quits!"
  • This is the only episode of the season not to have the Dragon Hunters and the First Realm in it.
  • Cole goes back to eating cake after accomplishing his goal of finding Wu.
  • Jay mentions he can't understand how anyone can live in Ninjago City, due to the repeated dangers of the last few seasons.
  • This is Zane's first time using his cloak upgrade since "Big Trouble, Little Ninjago."
  • This is the only episode where the original four Ninja wear their Ninja hoods with their Season 9 outfits. Lloyd wore his too, but he previously wore it in "Radio Free Ninjago." This means that Nya is the only Ninja who didn't wear their hood with their Season 9 outfit.
  • The scene where after Garmadon loses his powers and wants Lloyd to finish him off is most likely a reference to Star Wars Episode VI : Return of the Jedi where Emperor Palpatine wants Luke to strike Darth Vader down while he is weak.
  • The scene when Lloyd hangs from the tower is a reference to The Lion King where Mufasa tries hold on to the cliff.
  • Tommy and Simon are seen helping chain the Collossus down.

Errors

  • When Garmadon knocks Lloyd over a rock and before he manages to disarm him, Lloyd can be heard briefly yelping with a clip of his younger voice.
  • When the Ninja run up to Lloyd after he returns from Borg Tower, Nya can be seen with her Season 8 outfit on, despite the fact that she isn't meant to be wearing it until the next scene.
  • After Karlof breaks down the bars on his cell, they appear intact in the next shot.
  • When Ronin, Karlof and Griffin break out of their cell, Griffin's eyebrows are missing.
  • In spite of the Colossus being made from Garmadon's Elemental Power, even crumbling upon him losing it, the Ninja binding it in Vengestone Chains has little effect on it.
  • When the Ninja land their Dragons, Wu flies away from Lloyd and Nya, but then he runs back towards them when the Ninja dismount their Dragons.
    • It is possible that was Kai's fire dragon and not Firstbourne.
  • When the Ninja are celebrating, Misako is absent from the celebration.
  • During the bird's eye view shot where Kai says "just another day in Ninjago" Nya is missing, despite being present in that scene.
  • When Rufus Mcalister is about be crushed by debris he is roped around by Kai who is riding on his new Dragon. However in the next shot he is holding on to the rope instead of being tied around by it like in the previous shot.
