Ninjago Wiki
“Do not let fear guide you. Your first instinct is usually correct. We must go before it gets dark.”
Faith to Wu
“To be truly free of who you were, you must forego your feelings. Because who needs to care for a son, when you already have a... a... a daughter? Take me, let me be your child. Let me be your only family. So I can help you complete who you've set out to become. To fight this darkness you speak of. And to fight, to keep your father's realm.”
Harumi convincing Garmadon to have her as his daughter

Two Lies, One Truth is the sixth episode of the ninth season of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and the 90th episode overall. It aired on July 12, 2018 in Singapore, on August 4, 2018 in Australia, and aired in the United States on August 18, 2018, in "Hunted: Part 2."


As Lloyd unmasks Mystake for who she truly is, Emperor Garmadon embraces Harumi as his daughter of darkness. Wu holds onto faith as he leads his friends into dangerous Oni territory in the hope of finding Firstbourne's nest.[1]


The episode opens with the Realm of Oni and Dragons. Iron Baron comes across his men tied up in the sand, placed there by the ninja formerly. After a good rant, Iron Baron resolves to find them; and Jet Jack volunteers to find them by sundown. Chew Toy sniffs out the ninja's direction, finding the blanket Wu slept in and the group sets off, Jet Jack declaring that she wants to deal with Heavy Metal herself.

Meanwhile, back in Ninjago, chaos erupts near the ninja's new hideout. As Nya heads back inside, she announces to the others that they should be fine for the time being.

What's left of the ragtag resistance force is eating Chen's noodles, and Lloyd presses Mystake for answers. When Lloyd asks how she was able to become a rat, she humorously says that it was easy, before transforming into Master Wu. Quickly realizing that Mystake is an Oni, Lloyd asks why she isn't evil and dangerous like the rumors say. Mystake corrects him, saying that she is very dangerous; and that he would not want her on his bad side. According to Mystake, she and several other Oni were sent to Ninjago to bring the First Spinjitzu Master back to the land of Oni and Dragons; however, Mystake fell in love with Ninjago before her mission was completed. Turning against the other Oni, Mystake decided to stay in Ninjago indefinitely. She then points out that the Oni blood in Wu and Garmadon is the reason for their prolonged life. When Lloyd asks if he's half Oni why he can't transform, Mystake reminds him that he has been doing it his whole life. Lloyd had gone from a "bratty child," to the Green Ninja, and finally to the resistance leader; but that to face his father, he would have to transform one more time. Unfortunately, she would not tell him what that transformation was, only that he would have to discover it for himself.

In Kryptarium Prison, Griffin, the Police Commissioner, Karlof, Misako, and even Ronin are seen locked in cells. Ronin, who shares his cell with Misako states that he hopes Lloyd can pull through; to which Misako confirms that the Green Ninja can. Unconvinced, Ronin simply replies, "Easy for you to say; you're his mother."

Back on the tower, several goons, including Ultra Violet and Killow, complain that Garmadon went missing after the sting against the Resistance. Harumi opts to look for him while the others go back to work hunting the Green Ninja down.

Kai remarks that he's parched as he wanders over to Jay, who's clutching a canteen of water. With a start, the Master of Fire realizes Jay is hogging their "shared water" and has drunk a large portion of it. Meanwhile, after listening to the verbal arguing for a while, Faith cuts a cactus in half, stating that now they all have water. Jay and Kai break into yet another fight over their "shared cactus."

Over at another spot, Cole informs Master Wu that he'll have to tell Faith the truth about not knowing where they are going. Wu reminds him that they have to have faith, and determines not to tell Heavy Metal. Wu spots the Iron Barron's forces, telling Cole who believes that he is changing the subject until Wu shows him the danger. Everyone hops on board their vehicles, as a chase starts and the Hunters attack the ninja, but the ninja emerge victoriously; however, during the fight, Jet Jack placed a tracker on Cole and Wu's speeder.

By nightfall in the Realm of Oni and Dragons, the group stops near where dragon skulls are mounted on pillars. Faith asks Wu which way they should go, and Cole begs Wu to think very carefully before answering. After a little prodding from Faith, Wu points in a direction, to which Faith admits is Oni territory. Iron Barron had ventured there once before, being the only one of his party to make it out. Everyone boards up once more and takes off.

At the palace where Garmadon was resurrected, Harumi finds the emperor sulking. He admits frustration in the fact that he could have killed Lloyd but hesitated. In an attempt to help him get over Lloyd, Harumi suggested that he needed to get rid of his feelings entirely. She then asks why he needs a son if he already has- and though she's hesitant to say the words- a daughter. She asks that Garmadon accept her as his only child, and after a moment of hesitation, he dubs her as much, calling Harumi his daughter.

The ninja and Heavy Metal come upon the Oni ruins and discover that it's abandoned. Faith gets infuriated that the Baron had lied to them all, realizes that not only the dragons were enslaved by the Dragon Hunters, but also all of the Dragon Hunters were enslaved by fear. Finally calmed down to some degree she asks where they should go next. Finally, after so many lies, Wu admits he doesn't know. This sets Faith off on another rampage; and at some point, she asks if Wu knew how much she sacrificed to get them there. Stalking off, she begins shouting and screaming while kicking the walls and door. Cole takes this time to give Wu the proverbial "I told you so" in a few more words; and Jay states that the ninja can only try to raise Wu like he originally raised them. While Faith is kicking one of the massive doors, Wu notices a map on the back of the door. After pulling both doors closed with them inside, they realize with excitement that it's a map to the Dragon Armor.

Back in Ninjago, Harumi and her forces attack the neighborhood where the Resistance is lying low. Though Skylor and the others want to leave, Lloyd states that it's time to take a stand and change their strategy. Everyone then begins to lure the SoG goons apart, taking them down one by one. Nya handles Killow while the others fight the smaller more numerous men. Harumi quickly realizes that she's alone until Lloyd steps out of the shadows stating that "Those who cannot change, cannot change anything." She then remarks that Lloyd certainly has changed from the mighty Green Ninja to a "beggar in rags." Ignoring Harumi's jab, Lloyd tells her that because she took his friends, he took hers. Looking around, Harumi notes that she's surrounded by Lloyd, Nya, Skylor, Mystake, and Dareth. The Green Ninja triumphantly smiles as Harumi realizes she's been captured.

Cultural references

  • The title for this episode is a reference to the game Two Truths and a Lie.
  • The scene where Harumi finds Garmadon arising from the altar at the Temple of Resurrection is similar to the scene in Star Wars: Rogue One, where Vanne encounters Darth Vader in his meditation chamber at his palace on Mustafar to inform him that Directer Orson Krennic has arrived.


  • In the previous episode, Skylor states that the captured Resistance members were probably being held in Kryptarium Prison. A brief scene supporting that theory by showing Misako, the captured Elemental Masters, Police Commissioner, and Ronin all locked up in what appears to Kryptarium.
  • It is confirmed that Mystake is an Oni.
  • The Oni that followed the First Spinjitzu Master had a motive to turn him to their side and if he didn’t listen, to kill him. When the Oni and the First Spinjitzu Master arrived at Ninjago, Mystake refused to complete their mission because she fell in love with Ninjago. She turned on them and helped the First Spinjitzu Master protect his creation.
  • The reason that the First Spinjitzu Master, Wu, and Garmadon's lifespans are so long is because of their Oni blood. This could mean Lloyd may also have a long life-span if Lloyd inherited this.
  • It is revealed that Garmadon's purpose for ruling Ninjago and reaching his True Potential is because of the impending doom he saw while in the Departed Realm, and that he needs to be stronger to protect his father's realm.
  • It's revealed that Iron Baron lied about the Oni still inhabiting the Realm of Oni and Dragons. He used this lie to strike fear into the Dragon Hunters to control them.
  • Mystake refers to the First Spinjitzu Master as Lloyd's grandfather in this episode. Although it has been long established that they are family, this is the first time that their relation to each other is directly mentioned in the show.


  • Before taking down the Ice Dragon, Heavy Metal is seen with a white bandana instead of a tan one.
  • At the end of the episode when capturing Harumi, Lloyd is seen with his bamboo hat on, though he was seen taking it off right before that frame and then with it off the frame after.
  • In one shot, Faith is wearing her hat, although in the next shot, she isn't.
  • Lloyd says that they all had their fill, although the bowls in front of everyone are completely full of noodles.
  • When Killow says "How are you driving the boat?" taking a closer look reveals his mouth didn't move.
