"Under Siege"
"Vengeance is Mine!"

The Explorers Club is the thirteenth episode of the eleventh season, and the 111th episode overall of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. It aired on August 3, 2019 in the United States. It was paired up with "Vengeance is Mine!


The ninja break into the Explorer's Club to obtain the second Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu, running afoul of the club's manager and irate club members.


Back inside the Monastery of Spinjitzu, the Pyro Vipers were trying to break through the doors of the Samurai X Cave 2.0 by slamming Elemental Cobras into the door. Inside the base, Kai, Jay, and P.I.X.A.L. were working on the Titan Mech in order to fight Aspheera. When Jay turned on the mech, it was working at first before shutting down.

Back at the Explorers Club, Shippelton, Smythe, and Underhill were reviewing an exploration they recently had before being interrupted by the noise outside caused by the ShuriCopter and the Land Bounty. When Lloyd, Nya, and Zane enter The Explorers Club, they are welcomed by Cecil Putnam, and the trio explains that they need the second Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. Luckily for them, The Explorers Club possessed the scroll; however, the Ninja needed a membership for the club. Since the Ninja didn't have a membership, they were pushed out from the building.

The Ninja tried again, but this time, they used Zane disguised as Clutch Powers. Once Zane entered the building, he is confronted by Putnam who tells Zane that his membership had been suspended and cannot obtain any artifacts.

After the two failed attempts, Nya decided to be bold by sneaking in the building and stealing the scroll. Lloyd and Zane follow up, and all three reach the rooftop. The trio then shut down a fan by using Lloyd's sword and Zane's ice to prevent it from moving, and made their way down the ventilator using a rope hook. Suddenly, the fan broke free causing the Ninja to fall and crash into a middle of a meeting between Shippelton, Smythe, and Underhill. Lloyd tried to come up with an excuse by saying they were working on the air conditioning, but his sword came tumbling down. Shippelton knew he was lying and calls for security, causing the Ninja to flee into a room.

After the Ninja entered the room, they find out that it's one of the rooms that has artifacts, so they begin searching for the Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu. While probing, Lloyd knocked down the Chest Vortex and it began sucking in artifacts, but Lloyd stopped the mysterious relic by placing a glass cube over it.

After more searching, Lloyd came across the Mirror of Fears and it showed his greatest fear of becoming his father. For Nya, her greatest fear was just being a normal citizen, and for Zane, his greatest fear was having no life. While Lloyd was talking to Zane, something crawled on Nya, causing her to freak out and throw the mysterious object onto Lloyd and Zane. Then, the door opened and the security guards tried to seize the Ninja, but they were able to enter another room.

Zane realized they entered the entomology room prompting Nya to tell Lloyd to not touch anything, but Nya knocked down a glass containing Venomasicus Tigrus which happened to have the second-most painful stings. The Ninja tried to outrun the sworn of wasps, but they are stopped by Cecil Putnam and his security forces; nevertheless, the wasps attack them. Putnam is able to get away from the wasps and shoots a blowdart at Zane, but it deflects off him and hits a glass holding Vastodectrus Venemous which happed to have the most painful stings. Amongst the chaos, Nya told Lloyd and Zane to regroup and they enter another room.

This time, Nya found the second Scroll of Forbidden Spinjitzu, so they wrapped it up and exited the building, leaving everyone else inside The Explorers Club in disarray.

    • She would be weak if she had never unlocked her True Potential. I think it fits.
    • I think it is more than not unlooking her True Potential, I think that is her if she never found out that her mom was the master of Water
