When Orko helps Stanlan clean, he accidentally knocks over a wolf statue containing a map with ancient writing on it. Adam, Stanlan, Orko and Cringer take the note to the Sorceress to decode while Skeletor, Beast Man, and Trap Jaw spy on them. Beast Man sends his Hollywag creature into the Grayskull to eavesdrop. The Sorceress reveals that the Ancients' Books of Spells is found in the Temple of the Wolf via the Cave of the Winds.

Skeletor and company reach the cave before Adam and Orko arrive. They are followed by Teela and Melaktha, who are captured by Skeletor. Skeletor's snakes separate He-Man from Stanlan, from whom Skeletor confiscates the ancient map. Melaktha, who is convinced that Stanlan is in league with Skeletor, and Teela catch up to He-Man, while Stanlan and Skeletor enter the Cave of Winds. He-Man forces Beast Man to lead them to the Temple of the Wolf.

Stanlan and the Hollywag steal the Ancients' Book of Spells from Skeletor. He-Man throws a rock through the cave ceiling and allows the Hollywag to fly outside and away from Skeletor. Melaktha apologizes for thinking that Stanlan could betray them.
