The captain calls the Coast Guard on land and tells him about their situation, as it is happening, Wojira comes out of the sea with Kalmaar on her head, they head towards Ninjago to destroy it. As soon as Wojira dives back into sea, the storm calm down.

At Ninjago City pier, the Coast Guard is fishing and sleeping until he is woken up by a tug, which was caused by Glutinous. The sight of unknown creature scares the people away, while the coast guard confirms it is Ninjago when asked. Glutinous states that he needs to speak to the ninja, as the coast guard realizes there's danger coming.

Jay starts walking into Benny's Arcade Emporium. Where he sees Prime Empire and talks to the paperboys about his adventure into the game. He is called over by Nya, who is playing Dancy Pants. They play the game and Nya creates the move called “Electric Jaya”. They play the game until it breaks to which Wu calls them for emergency.

They are at the Ninjago City Police Station to talk to Glutinous. The scientist warns them that Kalmaar and Wojira are coming to Ninjago and that the amulet given to them was a fake. Wu sends out everyone and tells them to prepare for the worse, he calls P.I.X.A.L. and asks if the submersible combat crafts have can be repaired in time. A warning is passed to all of Ninjago but the warning may be too late as violent storms start appearing in Ninjago, scaring all in Ninjago City.

Trivia

  • Narrator: Wu
  • The title is based on the common phrase, "the calm before the storm," meaning "a period of quiet that comes before a time of activity or violence."
  • Jay and Nya dance in the arcade, continuing their dancing hobby from "Let's Dance" and "One Step Forward, Two Steps Back."
  • Nya named her dance the "Electric Jaya", by fusing her name with Jay's. In real life, "Jaya" is used by fans as the name of the couple's relationship.
  • This is the first episode that is not a season premiere to not have an intro, excluding the second, third, and fourth pilot episodes.
    • This also makes it the second episode in this season to not have an intro. The first one being the season premiere of Seabound, "A Big Splash."
  • One of the characters in the arcade wears a hat featuring a red maple leaf resembling the one on the Canadian Flag. This is likely a reference to WildBrain being based in Vancouver.
  • Interestingly, the German name of "Dead Man's Squall" is "Die Ruhe vor dem Sturm", which also translates to "The Calm Before the Storm."
