Extended: Nya feels helpless without her elemental powers but finds inspiration in blueprints for her old Samurai X Mech - at Kryptarium, Lloyd suspects that the Crystal King is gathering the Ninjas' old foes and that fellow prisoner Pythor is the new villain's next target. The Ninjas escape their cells to prevent Pythor's escape, but after a chaotic chase through the prison, Pythor gets away.
LEGO's YouTube channel: At the Monastery, Nya finds the blueprints of the Samurai X Mech after Master Wu assures her that she is so much more than her lost powers. Back at the prison, Pythor, a former serpent adversary, warns the Ninja that the Crystal King is freeing villains from prison. Later that night, a couple of Crystal Spiders sneak into the prison to free Pythor!
Will the Ninja be able to stop the Crystal Spiders from freeing Pythor? Can Nya still help the Ninja without her powers?
Skylor and Dareth arrive at Kryptarium Prison to visit the Ninja, and were nearly denied access due to their affiliation and the guards believing Dareth is more like a nightclub owner, pretending to be the Ninja's lawyer, until he shows them his attorney license. In the visitor's room, the Ninja tell them of Lloyd's encounter with a guy in a kabuki mask, who told him about the Crystal King and organizing a council. Skylor then informed them that Vangelis had escaped from his prison in Shintaro as Dareth then tells them that he is gonna try to file a mistrial, until Zane tells him otherwise. As their visiting time is up, Jay asks Skylor how Nya is, and she says the judge is denying her visitation rights and that she blames herself for their incarceration because she is powerless. Kai then tells him his sister is tough before they're moved back to their cell.
Back at the monastery, Wu comes across Nya cleaning out her room of ninja essentials since she feels there was no need to train as she doesn't have her Elemental Power anymore and is still blaming herself for the boys' incarceration. While resuming cleaning up, Wu comes across a drawing of Samurai X and a family, and shows it to her, with a message from the child who drew it, thanking her for saving them. Inspired, Nya comes across her old Samurai X blueprints.
In the exercise yard, the Ninja are having lunch with Cole complaining about the cake and Zane complaining about the motor oil he was given when Pythor, Ultra Violet, Killow, Mezmo, and Wyplash show up to mock them, with the Ninja surprised to see the former, who mentioned he got arrested by the New Ninja before making fun of them, and mentioned rumors of the Crystal King gathering a council and is waiting for his invite. He then prepares to start a food fight with the Ninja by grabbing his fellow inmates' and throw them at them. Before the others could join in, the guards stop them and force them back to their cells with Pythor proclaiming 'All hail the Crystal King!'
Later that night, three Crystal Spiders infiltrate the prison, waking Lloyd as they pass by the Ninja's cell to Pythor's, where they wake him up to play a message from the guy in the kabuki mask, inviting him to join the Council of the Crystal King, which he instantly accepted. From their cell, the Ninja notice the glow the crystal spiders were giving off before Kai shoots at the bars on their cell, setting off the alarm. Reaching his cell, they see crystals spiders leading Pythor out of a recently made hole before they attempt to go after him, with the guards on their tail, believing the Ninja were attempting to escape. Coming across a pathway, Pythor sees a hovercraft arrive to pick him up, just as the Ninja start to catch up. One of the spiders soon self destructs, blowing up the pathway and blocking their chance to catch Pythor. However, Kai manages to jump over the gap and attempts to shoot the hovercraft, but hits a lookout tower. As they helplessly watch Pythor leave, Zane uses his Ice power to extinguish the flames and Cole tells them that the damages done in the attempt is gonna add 20 years to their sentence before being forced to surrender as the guards surround them.
