Teela and Adam discover a mysterious castle. Two hundred years ago Lord Taran and Lady Voltera once lived in the fortress, spreading their reign of evil. Adam and Teela spot some winged horses and try to ride them. Meanwhile, Lady Voltera awakes inside the castle. Prince Adam falls off his horse and lands on a pile of leaves. An evil-looking Lord Taran spies on Voltera. When he confronts Voltera, she fails to recognize him. He-Man rescues Voltera and Saego. Teela, still searching for Adam on her winged horse, stops at the castle. She goes inside and is captured by Taran. Inside the castle a giant snake attacks Voltera, but He-Man saves her. He-Man hears Teela whom Taran holds, and Voltera finally realizes that this evil-looking man is her husband Taran. Taran drains the energy of a giant vine that supports the castle. The vine collapses, and the fortress begins to crumble. He-Man, Teela, Taran, and Voltera escape, but He-Man and Taran go back inside to rescue Saego. Outside, the Lord and Lady reject their evil ways and lust for power. They magically return to their former, beautiful selves.
