|“Change is inevitable. It is the nature of all things. Life itself, but still it remains water. You must feel the truth of this. Do not fight it. Embrace the change.”|
|— Sorla to Nya in "The Traveler's Tree"|
Sorla greets the ninja when they arrive at her cabin. After exchanging introductions, she uses a mystical fire to show the ninja what happened to Zane. She tells them that Zane is taken captive by the Ice Emperor and he is "lost." However, Lloyd believes Zane is strong and they will still come for him despite all the dangers she said. Sorla then warns them of General Vex who is out to get the ninja.
Lloyd and Sorla discuss the path to get to the Castle of Ice. She talks about having to be very quiet when you progress through Mala-Wojira or else Wojira will "strike you down."
When she heads outside to hear the news of Blizzard Samurai heading to the Great Lake, she tells everyone to head inside, so they can regroup.
Inside her cabin, the Ice Fishers throw ideas around on what they should do, but disagreements arise. Sorla then states that can't leave the Fire and they must protect it. When Kai asks why they "don't just light another fire," he is met by criticism by the Ice Fishers, but Sorla explains that they can't light another Hearth Fire since the weather is too cold. After realizing they can't transport the Hearth Fire, Sorla makes it clear they will protect it, and the ninja agreed that they will help.
When the Ice Fishers and the ninja head out to prepare, Kai stays behind with Sorla. He explains that he could solve the problem, but without his powers, he can't help. Sorla gives him advice saying Elemental Powers can't be stolen, and it will come back.
The Ice Fishers win the battle, but it's at the cost of losing their sacred Fire. The Ice Fishers sit around the empty Fire, freezing in the winter night. Kai continues to blame himself for not having his Elemental Powers, and Sorla asks if Kai has done everything he can do. This gives Kai the spark to try to light another Fire which turns out to be a success, with Kai slightly starting to regain his powers.
Sorla and the other Ice Fishers went out to see what Uthaug wanted to show them. They were shocked to see it's a piece of Lloyd's gi.
Sorla is shown with Nya, beginning her training on mastering ice.
Sorla and the rest of the Ice Fishers try to escape Boreal but was frozen in ice.
Upon Zane destroying his scepter, the Ice Fishers, including Sorla, were all unfrozen as a result. Several days later, Sorla tells the reunited ninja that she cannot brew Traveler's Tea due to Ninjago being a distant realm until Cole gives her the berry he had been saving. Once the portal was created, the ninja go through as Sorla watches Krag say goodbye to Cole before comforting the lone yeti, and watches Lloyd head in as the portal disappears.
