The Tale of Benthomaar << The Storm Amulet >> Riddle of the Sphinx

(In the throne room, Kalmaar and Gripe are looking through some sea scrolls when Glutinous enters.)

Glutinous: Prince Kalmaar! Prince Kalmaar!

Kalmaar: King Kalmaar.

Glutinous: Of course, King Kalmaar. Forgive me, sire. The resting place of the second amulet, based on the ninja's last known course, and what the girl Nya said about the Island of the Keepers, I believe it might be this one. (He shows Kalmaar a spot on a map.)

Gripe: That's the storm belt, your Majesty.

Kalmaar: Storm belt?

Glutinous: A region plagued by violent storms. Most charts show nothing there, but this one, this shows a small island.

Kalmaar: That's it. (He grabs Glutinous' magnifying glass to study the map.)

Gripe: Sire, there's nothing there. But --

Kalmaar: That is it! That is the location of the second amulet. Prepare my troops. We're going hunting.

(In the Hydro Bounty, the ninja, Maya, and Benthomaar are gathered at the kitchen.)

Jay: Okay, so, let me get this straight. Kalmaar needs two amulets to awaken this huge serpent Wojira, and he's got one of them already?

Benthomaar: Correct. The Wave Amulet.

Jay: And the second is the Storm Amulet that we found on the Island of the Keepers?

Lloyd: Yes. Which means we better get there first and make sure he doesn't get his hands on it.

Maya: Or he'll awaken Wojira and destroy the surface world.

Zane: I fail to see how the amulets will awaken Wojira. How are they linked?

Nya: It's really weird. But we saw it. Wojira is a huge snake, and she has these two holes on her head. And the amulets fit inside.

Jay: Inside her head? Gross!

Maya: And they were zapping her with electricity. That's what was making Nya's powers go haywire --

(Suddenly, the Bounty lurches violently. They all head to the control room.)

Lloyd: P.I.X.A.L., what was that?

Pixal: It is the electrical storm. We are approaching the Island of the Keepers. Please secure yourselves. I will attempt to dive to a safer depth to avoid the storm, but we are likely to experience some turbulence. (Everyone but Jay buckles up. Some rocks hit the Bounty, and Jay crashes around the room.) I'll just go ahead. Bear left, two degrees.

Nya: Left rudder, two degrees.

(Jay continues crashing around the room.)

Jay: Oh come on!

Nya: Jay, your chair does have a seat belt, you know.

Jay: Ugh, are we there yet?

Pixal: Affirmative.

Nya: Benthomaar, the Keepers can be a little, uh, touchy. So it might be better if you let us do the talking.

Jay: Yeah, they know us. We're old friends.

Benthomaar: As you wish.

Jay: (He exits the sub to find multiple Keepers pointing their spears at him.) Whoa! Hey, guys, it's me, remember? The gift of Jay?

PoulErik: Jay! (He pulls Jay into a tight hug.) Oh, we have missed you so much, Jay! It is so boring here without you. (To the other Keepers.) Ah, no offense.

Jay: I missed you too! I mean, both. Both of you.

(At the Keepers' Village.)

Mammatus: So the time comes at last. The time for which we have prepared all these years. Awaken the Stone Guardians. Let all know, invaders come. We must prepare to defend the amulet!

Keepers: Wojira!

Nya: No, please! Listen! You can't prepare. There are too many of them.

Lloyd: And they have powerful weapons.

Nya: Our only chance is to get the amulet as far from here as we can.

Mammatus: This is the safest place in all the realm. This island has concealed the amulet for thousands of years. We are protected by the storm.

Nya: They're not gonna come through the storm. They're going to go under it, like we did. They'll find you and take the amulet.

Jay: Nya's right. We gotta get it out of here, fast.

Nya: Please. You don't know this guy like I do. He will stop at nothing.

Mammatus: Mm. So be it. (He strikes the ground with his staff, summoning the amulet. PoulErik takes the amulet and kneels before Mammatus.) For thousands of years, we have upheld the oath bestowed upon us by the First Spinjitzu Master himself. That oath, I now pass on to you. Nya, of Ninjago. Do you accept this sacred duty?

Nya: I do.

Mammatus: Then, swear it.

Nya: I swear. I will do everything in my power to protect the amulet. (Mammatus gives her the amulet.) Thank you.

Zane: (He scans the amulet with a confused expression, then stops Nya.) One moment. Something's wrong. This item does not match my visual record of the amulet on our last visit.

Nya: What are you talking about?

Zane: It is similar, but not identical. (He touches the amulet, and a piece breaks off.) This amulet is a fake!

Mammatus: A fake? How is that possible?

Nya: But who would steal the Storm - oh, no. We need to get back to the Bounty. We have to radio Wu and the others.

Jay: Why?

Nya: Because I know where the amulet is. It's in Ninjago City. Come on!

(Back at the beach, the ninja enter the Hydro Bounty.)

Lloyd: Pixal, fire up the radio! We need to reach the Monastery, quick!

Pixal: Come in, Master Wu. Come in. This is the Hydro Bounty, do you copy? Master Wu, Kai! Anyone, come in!

Cole: Pixal!

Pixal: Finally. Thank the master.

Nya: Cole, there's no time. You have to listen. We're at the Island of the Keepers, looking for the Storm Amulet. It's not here. It's been stolen!

Cole: ... That's bad.

Nya: It gets worse. The amulet is in Ninjago City. At the Explorers Club.

Cole: How did it get to the - oh. Oh, I see. Don't worry, we'll get it. We're on our way.

(Suddenly, Kalmaar and his forces burst in.)

Kalmaar: Benthomaar! I see you found yourself at home among these subspecies.

Benthomaar: Kalmaar, these are my friends. Do not hurt them!

Kalmaar: You're in no position to ask anything. I will do as I wish, and take what I will!

(Everyone prepares to fight, when Nya notices the fake amulet behind Jay's back.)

Nya: Okay, fine. We give up. You can have it. Give him the amulet, Jay.

Jay: Huh?

Nya: Give him the amulet. The one in your hands.

Jay: Oh. Oh, right. I mean, no! Darn it, I won't! You're going to have to try and pry it out of my cold lifeless hands!

Lloyd: It's not worth it, Jay. Give it to him.

Jay: Fine. You twisted my arm. Here it is. (He throws the amulet to Kalmaar.)

Kalmaar: Save the theatrics. I heard you. It's a fake. The real amulet is in Ninjago City, at this Explorers Club.

Jay: Aww, man! You heard that? And after I did all that great acting.

Nya: Well, don't get too excited, Calamari. You'll have to go through us to get it.

Kalmaar: It's Kalmaar. As much as I would relish blasting you all into pieces, I think I have something better in mind. I think it would be far more satisfying to leave you alive, and stranded. (He begins destroying the control room.) So you may live with your failure, and know that all that follows, is your fault! For without your blundering, I never would have found the Storm Amulet. I leave you to ponder that, until the seas rise up, and swallow you all! Farewell, adopted brother. (He leaves.)

Lloyd: Zane! Extinguish the fire!

Pixal: Shut off the power!

Nya: Stop him! (She leaps into the water to pursue Kalmaar, but runs out of breath and is forced to give up.) Jay, we have to go after them!

(Zane puts out the fire, but it's no use.)

Nya: Tell me we can fix the controls. Please, tell me we can fix them.

Pixal: I'm sorry.

Nya: What have I done? He's right. Without me, he would never have found it. Without me, none of this would have happened. I've messed everything up!

Maya: Nya, look at me. When I first came here, I thought I was here to help you. But the more I watched you, the more time I spent with you, the more I realized: you don't need my help. You're a better Elemental Master than I ever was. If I were in your shoes right now, I really would be stuck. But I have no doubt, you'll find a way to get us out of here.

Nya: You really think that?

Maya: I know that. Now dry your tears and do what you do best. Get us out of here, and stop that tentacle creep.

Lloyd: Yes!

Jay: Yeah!
