"The Keepers of the Amulet"
"The Tooth of Wojira"
Extended: The Leader of the Keepers order Nya, Kai, Zane, and Cole into a prison where they're reunited with Master Wu, Miskao, and Clutch Powers. However, Jay is brought to a luxurious hut and fed amazing food while the Keepers refer to him as the "Gift of Jay". Lloyd mounts a rescue mission to save his friends and they realize that Jay may be in the most danger of all.
Mammatus instructs the keepers to leave one ninja with him. In Jay's attempt to talk his way out of it, he is chosen to be the one. The other ninja are placed in a cage and electrocuted. In the cage, they find the expedition team. Misako questions where Lloyd and Jay are, and the ninja give their best explanation. Kai believes that Lloyd is coming for them.
Back in the jungle, Lloyd puts on camouflage, and tells Tim why he has to go back. He tries to boost Tim’s spirit, and leaves.
Back at the camp, PoulErik gives Jay his meal, and Jay questions why they treat him well, and why he has two heads. They just call him Jay the Gift.
Lloyd travels to the camp, and sees the ninja in a cage. Zippy pops up behind him. Taking advantage of Zippy's love of playing fetch, Lloyd uses the coconut to make Zippy attack the keepers, and he breaks the team out of the cell. They split up to find Jay, to no avail.
Realizing that Clutch is gone and went after the amulet, they confront him but are electrocuted by the Keepers. They wake up to find themselves tied to poles, and see Jay being escorted by the Keepers. Jay tells them to release his friends, but they instead continue their plans to sacrifice Jay to Wojira, so that she will continue her sleep.

- Narrator: Mammatus
- As part of the 44-minute special version of The Island, instead of the episode ending with Kai saying "I guess someone did want Jay," it ends with Jay saying "There's something big out here!"
- The English version of this episode (along with the next) actually premiered in Taiwan two days before the Canadian premiere. This is because Taiwan aired all four episodes at once, while Canada split the episodes into two parts.
- This is the ninth episode where the title refers to a ninja. The first eight being "Tick Tock," "The Green Ninja," "The Titanium Ninja," "Snake Jaguar," "Fire Maker," "My Enemy, My Friend," "Superstar Rockin' Jay," and "The Son of Lilly."
- This is also the eleventh episode to have a character's name mentioned in the title. The other ten are "Return of the Overlord," "Codename: Arcturus," "My Dinner With Nadakhan," "Saving Faith," "Krag's Lament," "Superstar Rockin' Jay, "I am Okino," "Racer Seven," "The Skull Sorcerer," and "The Son of Lilly."
- This is also the second episode to have Jay's name in the title.
- Jay asks PoulErik which of his heads he should look at when talking to him. This is similar to when Kai said that he didn't know whether to look at the Skull Sorcerer or the Skull of Hazza D'ur in "The Upply Strike Back!"
- It is said that when Jay was young, his mother Edna would call him her "precious little gift".
- In the previous episode, two ponytailed Keepers were standing next to Mammatus. However, in this episode, the two ponytailed Keepers were replaced by the ones that have blue markings.
- When Lloyd puts paint on his face, there is no paint on his hands.
- When Lloyd was with Twitchy Tim, he indirectly mentions the Keepers and that he has to rescue the other ninja from them. However, Lloyd didn't knew about the Keepers and what happened to the ninja until later on in this episode, as he was separated from them in "The Keepers of the Amulet."
