"Wasted True Potential"
"A Rocky Start"
Questing for Quests is the second episode of the eleventh season, and 100th overall of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. It aired in the United States on June 22, 2019. It is paired up with "Wasted True Potential."
It was originally scheduled to be released in Canada on May 11, 2019, but was removed and rescheduled for August 10, 2019. A trailer featuring incomplete animation not meant for public viewing was mistakenly released by Teletoon on April 30, 2019, but was taken down shortly.
Realizing they have gone soft, the ninja search for a quest to reignite their Spinjitzu training; unfortunately, Ninjago City is enjoying a period of rare tranquility.
Back at the courtyard, the Ninja are training until Lloyd comes back and to no success is not able to get any advice from Wu, so Jay decides the Ninja need to brainstorm in a calm environment which is the hot tub.
In the hot tub, Kai suggests they need a villain in order to get into form, but the Ninja realizes they have defeated most of the villains such as former Sons of Garmadon members and Chen, and while Lord Garmadon is still active, they decide he is no longer a threat. In addition, they are too lazy to search for Pythor as his whereabouts are unknown. Zane then proposes that they ask the Police Commissioner to see if there are any criminals to catch.
In Ninjago City, the Ninja rush to the Police Commissioner’s office to see if there’s any work to be done; however, Ninjago City is unusually peaceful due to being no villains. Suddenly, Jimmy comes in and tells the Police Commissioner about an illegal shipment which is when the Ninja dash out to deal with the situation. Nevertheless, when they break in, there is only a guy selling juice.
When the Ninja came back to the Commissioner’s office, Jimmy comes in to report on a riot in Kryptarium Prison, but it turns out it’s only a video recording. While they are there, they visit Killow, but they are bored on his painting (a dog holding a dynamite stick) and leave.
Throughout the day, the Ninja perform tasks that do not require fighting such as saving a cat, cleaning the police station, and sorting documents. Even when the Ninja tried to save people such as the bank robbery, they realize it was all part of a movie.
By the time the Ninja return to the Monastery of Spinjitzu, they are tired from the day's work and agree to tell nobody about what they did. When Kai turns on the news, Gayle Gossip is reporting on an Ancient Pyramid in the Desert of Doom. When she interviews Clutch Powers, an archeologist who found the pyramid, he talks about not wanting to go inside the pyramid because of booby traps and tells Gossip that only a ninja can venture inside. This gives Lloyd the idea that the Ninja should venture inside the pyramid in order to get into shape.
After Gossip is complete with her report, the camera zooms onto an ancient tablet depicting Aspheera—a foreshadowing of the enemy the Ninja will face.
