Plot Outline

The Royal Family are celebrating the return of their Princess by having a Royal dinner, unbeknownst to the fact that Hordak, Skeletor, and his warriors have disguised themselves as cooks and have entered Eternos. The Princess is captured, so the King arranged a rescue party consisting of He-Man, Battle Cat, Man-At-Arms and Teela who go to Snake Mountain to rescue her. They do not need to, as Adora finds her newly-discovered powers of transformation pretty handy, especially to get out of sticky situations…

The Royal Family is split once more, as Adora vows to call Etheria ‘home’ until the planet is finally free. Back on Etheria, She-Ra and He-Man team up one final time to free Angella’s fallen kingdom, Bright Moon. The battle is fierce, but the Rebellion comes out on top for the first time and so claim their first victory – a bittersweet moment for She-Ra, who then says farewell to her brother, who sheds a tear to mark the occasion.
