Adam, Cringer, Teela, and Orko enjoy a picnic in the forest while Tharan and his girlfriend have a date. Kareel's doting on the heroics of He-Man prove prophetic when He-Man saves them all from a Shrieker accidentally aggravated by Cringer. In the royal prison, a scientist Galen Nycroft uses a machine to transform into Modulok. Tharan concocts a plot to make Kareel think he is the secret identity of He-Man. He uses his pet Armi to create Dragosaur sounds in the Crystal Cave. News of the Dragosaur reaches He-Man, who finds nothing in the cave. Kareel sees Tharan enter the cave and He-Man exit the cavern.

Overhearing Tharan admit to Kareel he is He-Man's secret identity, Modulok captures him. Kareel alerts Adam of Tharan's capture, and He-Man investigates. Modulok tries to force Tharan into changing into He-Man by unleashing his Grabber monster on him. Armi leads He-Man and Kareel to Tharan, where He-Man defeats the Grabber and imprisons Modulok.
