The Ascent << The Upply Strike Back! >> The Son of Lilly

(In the dungeons, the Geckles and the Munce mine under the supervision of Awakened Warriors, while the Ninja watch from inside their cage.)

Nya: Ugh! (She tries and fails to open the cage.)

Kai: Save your strength, sis. It's Vengestone.

Nya: Ugh. The Munce had faith in me, and now look at them. Right back where they were, in chains. I can't believe we were gullible enough to trust the Skull Sorcerer.

Kai: Yep, I'm probably going down as the worst chancellor in Geckle history.

Zane: I do not see that we had any choice.

Jay: Zane's right. If we hadn't surrendered, he would have destroyed all of them.

Lloyd: At least they're still alive. There's still hope.

Skull Sorcerer: Haha, such spirits. But unfortunately, there is no hope. I have decided a demonstration is needed to show my true power over this mountain.

Kai: What kind of demonstration?

Skull Sorcerer: For too long, the Geckles and Munce have resisted my rule. But when they witness your destruction...

Skull of Hazza D'ur: Destruction!

Skull Sorcerer: When all hope is lost...

Skull of Hazza D'ur: Lost!

Skull Sorcerer: They will submit.

Jay: What are you gonna do to us?

Skull Sorcerer: You'll perish at the talons of Grief-Bringer.

Skull of Hazza D'ur: Grief-Bringer!

Nya: Okay, that's getting annoying.

Kai: Yeah, I don't know who to look at, you or the skull?

Jay: I'm looking at the skull, it's not as ugly. Hahaha!

Skull Sorcerer: Silence! Enjoy your final moments of levity.

Skull of Hazza D'ur: They will be your last.

Lloyd: Aren't you forgetting one thing? Cole. He's still out there. And if I know Cole, by now he's found King Vangelis and told him everything. They're probably on their way to stop you right now.

Skull Sorcerer: Oh, that's right. You don't know. (He transforms back into Vangelis and laughs.)

Lloyd: You!

Nya: Vangelis?

Vangelis: Your friend did come to me, and I cast him into the bowels of the mountain. He and that old fool, Wu. (He turns back into the Skull Sorcerer.)

Lloyd: You're not the first to think so, but he has a way of popping up when you least expect it.

Plundar: (He and the Upply spy on them from behind some rocks.) Look, the Skull Sorcerer.

Fungus: 'Tis unfortunate we cannot hear what he says.

Cole: You're not missing much. Once you've heard one of those villain speeches, you've heard them all. He's just saying blah blah, my evil plan, blah blah, no one's gonna save you.

Skull Sorcerer: No one is coming to save you. Have the courage to accept your fate.

Lloyd: Just tell me one thing. The Blades of Deliverance. It was you who stole them, wasn't it?

Skull Sorcerer: You mean ... these? (Two Awakened Warriors raise the blades.)

Cole: Those belonged to my mother! (He emerges from their hiding spot, but Plundar pulls him down.)

Plundar: Are you crazy? Get down!

Lloyd: So you did steal them.

Skull Sorcerer: It was no great task. The Geckles and Munce are simple creatures, easy to deceive, and I knew they would blame each other.

Zane: Making them easier to divide and conquer!

Skull Sorcerer: Now you know, may the knowledge bring you some peace in your final moments? (He flies away.)

Cole: This is our chance.

Plundar: What's the plan?

Cole: Fungus, you and Korgran get down there and see if you can free the Geckles and Munce. Get them loose, and wait for my signal. Plundar, Adam, you're with me.

Plundar: Where are we going?

Cole: After those blades. If we can get those, we just might have a chance.

Murt: (Korgran defeats an Awakened Warrior.) Who are you?

Fungus: We are here to free you. (Plundar tosses them a key.)

Murt: Oh.

Fungus: Pass the word. Wait for the signal.

(Two Awakened Warriors carry the blades to a vault.)

Cole: Excuse me. (He and Plundar punch the Warriors into the vault. Cole catches the blades.) I'll take those. Thanks! (Adam pulls a lever and shuts the vault.)

Plundar: What now?

Cole: Get to the cages, and see if you can get my friends out.

Plundar: What about you?

Cole: I'm gonna have a word with the guy who shut me down a mountain.

Skull Sorcerer: It is time! (To a sleeping Awakened Warrior) Sound the gong. Sound the gong! (The Skull of Hazza D'ur blasts the Warrior, who wakes up and quickly does so. The Munce and Geckles look up.)

Korgran: Is that signal?

Fungus: No, not yet. Just be ready.

Skull Sorcerer: Hear me, Geckles and Munce. Hear and bear witness to the power that is mine! Look upon those who defied me. Look upon those in whom you placed your trust, and watch as they come to their end. Release Grief-Bringer!

Korgran: Is that signal?

Fungus: No! Not yet!

(Someone throws a rock at a Warrior, causing the cage door of Grief-Bringer to close. Cole, dressed in his Hero suit, lands in front of the Skull Sorcerer.)

Skull Sorcerer: Who dares?

Cole: I'll give you three guesses.

Skull Sorcerer: You!

Jay: Yes!

Zane: Cole!

Nya: I knew it!

Kai: Kick his butt, Cole!

Korgran: Now?

Fungus: Yes, Korgran. Now!

Korgran: The signal! (The Geckles and Munce take off their chains at his signal.)

Murtessa: Munce and Geckles, strong together!

Gulch: Sign ho! (They all charge at the Awakened Warriors.)

Fungus: Fall back.

Skull Sorcerer: It's impossible. I cast you into the bowels of the mountain!

Cole: You tried, and failed. And this time, I'm ready for you.

Lloyd: Cole! Get us out of here!

Nya: Open the cages! We can help!

Jay: (Adam appears near Jay, scaring him.) Aah!

Plundar: I'm on it!

Nya: Who're you?

Plundar: Plundar's the name. One of the Lowly, except I think we're the Upply now.

Jay: Um, the who?

Plundar: We're in Cole's crew.

Kai: Cole's got a ... crew?

Skull Sorcerer: You have returned to your doom. You will join your pitiful friends!

Skull of Hazza D'ur: And perish with them!

Cole: Aw, that's cute! He's like your little pet skull!

The Ninja except Cole: Ninja, go!

Jay: Need some help?

Murtessa: Hi, my sweet Jay.

Jay: Hehe.

Skull Sorcerer: You cannot win. I'm stronger than you. More powerful.

Cole: Maybe. But I've got these!

Skull Sorcerer: Your faith is misplaced! (Grief-Bringer escapes his cage.) The blades are nothing.

Skull of Hazza D'ur: They are powerless.

Skull Sorcerer: I studied them. There is no magic in them.

Cole: Nice try. But these defeated Grief-Bringer, so I'm bettin' it can defeat you!

Skull Sorcerer: If that is what you think, you will be sorely disappointed!

Cole: And you talk too much! (They leap at each other.)
