King Morais, ruler of the ice kingdom of Morainia, informs King Randor that his people have developed a new, stronger energy crystal that Morais wishes to be used in Randor's kingdom first. Randor sends Adam to get the energy crystal. King Morais introduces his son snobby Esker and his intelligent daughter Janis.

Trap Jaw and Beast Man assault King Morais, but he hypnotizes them. Skeletor challenges the king, reflecting his hypnosis spell and placing the ruler in a suspended glass cage in the Cave of Mirrors. Skeletor demands that the Morainians give him the energy crystal in return for their king. Janis explains her strategy for rescuing her father to He-Man. The abandoned mine where he is held has three entrances, one for Janice, one for He-Man, and one for Orko.

Orko follows a small tunnel to the king, who is rescued when He-Man walks a tightrope to reach him and pulls him out of the glass cage. Skeletor, Beast Man, and Trap Jaw confront Prince Esker and his cabinet, who have not decided what to do. As soon as Skeletor takes hold of the energy crystal, He-Man comes back and the villain flees.
