Back at the Castle of Ice, Grimfax and the rest of the Blizzard Samurai head to the Ice Emperor’s Throne Room. He comments on his successful win by putting out the Hearth Fire, but Vex asks why the Hearth Fire is relit. Vex asks the Ice Emperor to punish him, and Grimfax is nearly frozen before being spared. When Vex asks what to do with the strangers and the Green Ninja, the Ice Emperor commands them to release the Ice Dragon, Boreal.
Meanwhile, Lloyd and Red continue to walk until they face the Ice Behemoth. Lloyd, in his Titan Mech, fights the Ice Robot, but both fall down a cliff. Red is able to wake up Lloyd, but it also revives the Ice Robot. Red tries to help, but she is kicked by the Ice Robot. Eventually, they reach a frozen lake where Lloyd cuts the ice open, causing the Ice Behemoth to fall through.
Lloyd comes to find Red unconscious, but still having a heartbeat. Lloyd sets a shelter and wraps a bandage around Red's leg before sleeping. The next day, Lloyd wakes up to find Akita in her human form. Shocked, Lloyd is upset with her and believes she deceived him. He then walks away from her and heads to the Castle of Ice, but Akita follows Lloyd. Once again, Lloyd is upset to see Akita and they both begin to argue. Lloyd then gallops off, and Akita tries to follow, but whimpers, due to her injured leg. Lloyd comes back and apologizes for being so harsh. She accepts the apology and plans to tell Lloyd her story.

- Narrator: Lloyd
- This is the first episode where Akita's human form is seen.
- This is the first time Harumi is mentioned in the season.
- Lloyd mentions Harumi when he resumes listing all the things that went wrong in his life to Akita.
- Similar to "Boobytraps and How to Survive Them" episode's title being based on a book, this episode's title is based on a real life book titled Secret of the Wolves.
- The way Lloyd made a trap for the Ice Robot could be a callback to when he made a trap for the Anacondrai Cultists in "The Corridor of Elders."
- When Vex tells the Ice Emperor about the green-outfit stranger, the latter pauses for a moment and appears perplexed, almost as if he knew the stranger was Lloyd and who he is.
- When Grimfax returns to the Castle of Ice, he was holding his axe. But when he said, "victory is yours," the axe disappears.
