“Save me, Jay Walker—there's going to be a wedding, and I want you to do something about it!”
Nya to Jay

The Last Resort is the eighth episode of the sixth season of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and the 62nd episode overall. It aired on January 25, 2016, in Asia, and on July 14, 2016, in the United States on Cartoon Network.


When the last two remaining Ninja are safeguarded, the Sky Pirates discover their whereabouts and attack in search of the one who holds the power to unlock Azad's full potential.[1]

When the last two remaining Ninja are safe-guarded in a place no one would dare to look, the Sky Pirates discover their whereabouts and attack in search of the one who holds the power to unlock Azad's full potential.[2]


After the loss of Cole and Lloyd, the police are making every effort to prevent Nadakhan from marrying Nya. Despite their efforts, the Sky Pirates continue to locate her and Jay. The Police Commissioner tells Jay to protect Nya, which he bravely agrees. Showing and escorting them through a trap door, the Commissioner stalls Nadakhan long enough for the two ninja to escape, but at the cost of being captured too, after eating the map to prevent them from finding the two ninja.

Later, Jay and Nya are approaching the island where Dr. Julien was held to take refuge, discovering the prison clean because of Tai-D still being functional. They check their supplies, including the Tiger Widow venom and Traveler's Tea (their very last resort), and repeat the plan, but Jay has a little doubt about how it is meant to go. Nya reassures him that he will find a way—unaware both are being spied on.

Meanwhile, in Misfortune's Keep, Nadakhan threatens the Police Commissioner to launch them from onboard demanding them the ninja's whereabouts. The Commissioner told him that he doesn't know where they are since he was never told, but one of the cops lets slip that the ninja have the venom. To prevent himself from saying anything else, he jumps into the sea, as well as the other cops. Nadakhan plans what to do with the venom, but Flintlocke faces Nadakhan because of mistrust; despite having successfully accomplished their mission in building a new Djinjago, the djinn captain insisted to extend it with the marriage ceremony—yet another secret he kept from his crew. Fed up with mistrust, suspicious of his captain's true intentions, and realizing what Jay said was true, Flintlocke calls Nadakhan out on planning to make a mutiny on his own crew, heeding Jay's advice. His claim only lands him demoted to Clancee's position while the Serpentine gets his as first-mate.

In the prison, Nya and Jay are thinking of what to use the last wish, yet they keep running into the same restrictions on wish-making. Jay starts talking of how he got all of them in this mess because of his feelings for Nya, but she interrupts him, having seen the spy from earlier. Following him to the tower's basement, the Robo-Butler finds a secret door to reveal the stranger. To their absolute shock, it's Zane, but a more rustic primitive version of him. Calling him Echo Zane, as he must have been a replacement Zane when Dr. Julien was in the tower, Jay and Nya joyfully reconsider their plan alongside their newest ally.

In Misfortune's Keep, the Sky Pirates are looking for Nya, but keep coming up empty. Nadakhan approaches Clancee to have him make his second wish, to find the ninja. He then sees them through a window, but Echo Zane, on Jay's command, breaks the mirror before he could see where they are. He was too late, though; the Djinn noticed red kelp by the tower's windows he was all-too-familiar with and deduces their location in the western seaside of Ninjago.

Meanwhile, Jay considers using the tea because of the possibility that they were found, but Nya points out they cannot keep running all the time. She even brings up his revealed future to prove that they will win against Nadakhan, as they are still together and alive, which gives Jay some hope. He then declares that if they are to make a stand, it would be at the tower itself, and so they and Echo Zane, whom they teach how to fight, set up defenses all around the keep. As they make their last preparations, Jay gives Nya the tea, explaining it is she that Nadakhan wants. She tells him she already figured that, but she also tells him how she felt about having been judged by everyone else and not being given the choice to decide for herself, hence her recent frustrations. This prompts Jay to ask what she really wanted, and she replies with choosing her own destiny and laments about wanting the djinn's chase to be over too. Suddenly, Jay has the best idea for his third wish: if he wished Nadakhan was a mortal human instead of a djinn, he would never get his infinite wishes or use his powers anymore. This would also mean that if Jay can wish for that here, he would be stuck in the lighthouse just like Dr. Julian once was. Their excitement is cut short when Echo Zane arrives, saying the pirates had arrived.

The tower's defenses hold out for a time until its walls are breached, and Jay and Nya end up fighting together both on the offensive. Their efforts are mixed: although some of the tea is spilled Nya gets rid of Dogshank through the portal made, ending up on Tiger Widow Island and scares the Tiger Widow away; and despite holding off the pirates, Monkey Wretch takes the teapot from them. Eventually, Echo Zane arrives at their rescue and disposes of the rest of the pirates . . . only to fall apart again once Nadakhan arrives. Torn between his attempts to defeat Nadakhan and saving Nya, Jay chooses the latter by hurling her and himself through a nearby hole in the wall and into the water near the basement windows, much to the Djinn's rage.

Breaking through a window, they reach the missing teapot at the same time the remaining pirates approach the doorway. Holding the door shut, they use the tea as their last resort of escape . . . only to find a few drops left for one person. Jay hands Nya the poisoned dart, saying he always kept his word, including protecting her. His oath makes Nya realize what Lloyd had meant before about wishing "from the heart," and reveals this to Jay as well as her feelings on the matter: she learned she already made her own choice about her destiny, to be with Jay upon first meeting him. Sealing their rushed moment, she tells him that although she may be the Djinn's target, he is her last hope to make her secret wish come true. With that, she tosses Jay through the portal, leaving her to fight the incoming pirates herself. Despite her valiant efforts, she is eventually captured too.

The Trivia on The Last Resort needs to be divided into the Trivia and Continuity sections.
  • You can help the wiki by dividing the following information into the these sections.
  • This template can be removed once the section has been divided.
  • This episode marks the third time where Nya has been captured by the main villains, having previously been captured by the Skulkin and later the Stone Army.
  • This is the fourth episode to not physically feature key characters: both Kai and Zane are gone (however, another version of Zane appeared), this is the first and only episode not to feature Cole before the eleventh season, and the first to not feature Lloyd since "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" (not including the pilot episodes).
    • This is also the first and only episode until the eleventh season not to feature Kirby Morrow as part of the cast.
  • This the first episode where Nya wears her Airjitzu suit and the only time it is fully seen, as only its upper half is seen in the next episode when she is being forced to wear a dress.
  • Every time Echo Zane moved, his appendages creaked and groaned with rust and bending metal, further revealing his decrepit and primitive structure.
  • It seemed Flintlocke did believe in Jay's statements about Nadakhan's real plans when the Blue Ninja was held prisoner aboard Misfortune's Keep but held out until he saw the evidence for himself.
  • Jay has found what to do for his third wish: for Nadakhan to no longer be a Djinn.
  • Dr. Julien's prison tower is described by Nadakhan to be located within the western shores of Ninjago, which is accurate since the ninja's journey to the Dark Island back in Season 2 indicates this.
  • After the Sky Pirates cause an explosion in the lighthouse, a line appears under Jay's eye, indicating that his eye was swollen as a result of the impact. This is the only time in the series where a character has gained a minor facial injury detail of this sort within the course of an episode.
  • It is revealed that Dogshank has purple hair.
  • While Tommy, Simon, and the Police Commissioner are left at sea with sharks circling around them, the Comissioner appears in Ninjago in the following episode. According to Tommy Andreasen, they were saved by giant sea turtles.[3]
  • The events of this episode were soon erased due to Jay's final wish in "The Way Back".
  • The synopsis incorrectly names Nadakhan as "Azad".
    • His name was changed halfway through production due to the name being too similar to a real life Syrian dictator named "Bashar al-Assad." Because of this, the cast had to redo many of their lines[4].


  • As the Pirates begin their attack on the prison tower, the swords on Jay's back disappear and reappear as the scene progresses.
  • At the beginning of a line, Flintlocke talks in Zane's voice. [ Which line? ]
