At the rebel camp, Madame Razz and the Twiggets use their magical powers to discover that He-Man is being held captive on Beast Island, where a Horde jail is located. Despite setbacks Madame conjures up a flying ship, and the rebels fly to Beast Island in an attempt to rescue the most powerful man in the universe. At that moment on Beast Island Force Captain Adora confronts the prisoner He-Man, telling him that the sword he dropped feels as if it were made for her. He-Man agrees, but adds that the sword is for one who is on the side of good. Adora says that she serves the rightful rulers of Etheria, so He-Man challenges her to go out into Etheria and see what the Horde is really like. Hordak and Shadow Weaver discover the rebel ship on their way to Beast Island, so Hordak promptly shoots it down. Unbeknownst to the Horde Glimmer's powers saved the rebels from serious injury, but she is very weak having used up a substantial amount of her power. Hordak and Shadow Weaver are suspicious of Adora as she leaves the safety of the Horde, as the rebels come face to face with one of the monsters that inhabits the island. The rebels flee from the monster, unable to stop it. All appears lost when suddenly Battle Cat launches some very large fruit at the monster, causing it to temporarily lose its vision, forcing it to leave. At the prison stronghold on Beast Island Adora and her steed Spirit leave the island in an attempt to prove He-Man wrong. As she leaves the rebels successfully manage to gain entry into the Fright Zone, only to have Grizzlor try and stop them with Horde technology. Adora travels and begins to witness more and more of the Horde atrocities committed against innocent people. The rebels fend off some Horde Troopers and soon find themselves in the room where He-Man has been chained. Just as the rebels prepare to free He-Man Hordak and Shadow Weaver overpower them, Shadow Weaver paralyzing them with gas. Hordak plans to exact punishment on the rebels if He-Man does not tell him why he has come to Etheria. As Hordak and the Horde leave, Kowl appears having escaped the paralyzing gas, and immediately sets about freeing He-Man. He-Man releases the imprisoned rebels, but alarms sound and the entire Horde are alerted to their escape attempt. He-Man uses his great strength to take care of the Horde Troopers that stand before them, impressing his fellow rebels with his abilities. Arriving on the launch pad of Beast Island He-Man battles Grizzlor's Destructo-Tanks, as the rebels prepare to steal a Horde ship to make their escape. He-Man decides to carry out one more task and destroys a portion of the prison compound. The rebels escape Beast Island as Hordak and Shadow Weaver leave for the Fright Zone. Adora returns to the Fright Zone, confronting Hordak and Shadow Weaver, accusing them with the truth that she has now seen with her own eyes. Shadow Weaver determines that the sword Adora carries is somehow weakening the spell cast on her. Shadow Weaver puts Adora to sleep with her magic and retrieves the sword, vowing to Hordak that she will learn the secrets of the sword, along with He-Man's secrets as well.
