Synopsis

Prince Kalmaar deceives the Merlopians and turns the ninja into fugitives.[1]

Extended: After the Bounty rescues Nya and Maya, they're all escorted to Merlopia to face King Trimaar - however, Kalmaar betrays his own people and turns the ninjas into fugitives who must now escape a flooding palace. Benthomaar learns the truth about his brother's intentions and realises that the ninjas aren't to blame.[2]

Plot

Nya and Maya are swimming very fast to escape the Ripper Sharks but fail as the sharks surround the two. Nya uses her powers to attack the sharks, but as the last shark charges at Nya, her APS suit is damaged and is unable to do anything. Lloyd and Jay soon show up with their blasters, shooting away the shark. At the Temple of Wojira, Kalmaar sees that his prisoners had escaped. Gripe appears behind him and tells that even though the prisoners escaped that he had let the Ripper Sharks out on them. Kalmaar is not happy with the news and reprimands Gripe saying that he needs them in order to learn the location of the Island of the Keepers, Glutinous appears telling the prince that the Hydro Bounty was somehow repaired and that they escaped on it. Kalmaar uses this information to his advantage by sending troops to get the ninja.

The ninja have no choice but to go with the Merlopians to avoid being sunk again and are taken to Merlopia. In the palace, the ninja meet King Trimaar, who is angry at them for almost disrupting peace between Merlopia and Ninjago. But the ninja explained all that truly happened and the King calls his son. Kalmaar denies all that happened but admits to sinking the Hydro Bounty. Trimaar reminds his son of the peace that they have with Ninjago, but Kalmaar argues that the humans are parasites and don’t deserve to live, but Trimaar has heard enough and says Kalmaar will stop as he is his father and king.

Kalmaar pulls out his trident and attacks his father. After attacking the guards, he blames the ninja for his actions. The ninja run to escape from the Merlopians. Benthomaar walks into the throne room and asks if Trimaar is safe but Kalmaar lies says that the ninja have committed the act. Benthomaar tries to help his father meanwhile Kalmaar tries to terminate the ninja. As the ninja are still attempting to escape the palace. Water floods the place and the ninja put on their masks to avoid drowning. P.I.X.A.L. remarks on how Zane doesn’t need one, but Zane likes how it completes his attire.

The Ripper Sharks find the location of the ninja and but Zane builds a Ice wall. Jay mocks the sharks but only makes them angry and more determined to break down the wall. Lloyd is trying to open the door and asks for help, to which the rest help him. Benthomaar caries Trimaar assuring him everything will be alright. Trimaar, with his last remaining strength tells the truth of what happened and wants Benthomaar to promise him that he’ll get the ninja out of Merlopia and to stop Kalmaar before it’s too late. In the throne room, Kalmaar picks up the crown, but Gripe appears behind him, scaring him again, and calling him prince. To which, Kalmaar responds no longer as a prince but as King Kalmaar.

Trivia

  • Narrator: Kalmaar
    • In the Czech version of the episode, the narrator is Trimaar instead of Kalmaar.
  • The title of the episode is based off the phrase "long live the king," a traditional proclamation whenever the heir succeeds to a throne upon the death of the preceding ruler.
    • Given that this is also the episode that Trimaar dies, it could also be a reference to the Disney animated film The Lion King, where Scar, the brother of the lion king Mufasa and the main antagonist of the film, uses the same line before sending Mufasa to his death at the hands of stampeding wildebeests.
