He-Man and She-Ra stand in the Whispering Woods, bewildered by the fact that they are siblings. When She-Ra mentions "the woman in the sword," He-Man takes her sword and summons the Sorceress. The Sorceress responds and begins to explain everything. She reveals that many years ago, King Randor and Queen Marlena became the proud parents of twins, Adam and Adora. During this time, an army of invaders called the Evil Horde attacked the Royal Palace. Their leader, Hordak, could not overcome the royal guard or the power of Castle Grayskull, so Hordak decided to use a different strategy. He and his favorite pupil, Skeletor, climbed into the royal nursery. Hordak took Princess Adora, but Man-At-Arms stopped him before he could take Prince Adam too. Hordak fled, but left Skeletor behind. When confronted, Skeletor revealed the location of the Horde's secret base, Snake Mountain. The Sorceress and Man-At-Arms pursued Hordak, but he took the baby and ran into another dimension. Despite years of searching, they were unable to find the particular dimension to which Hordak had escaped. To spare the pain of Adora's loss, the Sorceress wiped out everyone's memory of her, except for Man-At-Arms and the King and Queen. She-Ra sheds tears after discovering her identity, and embraces He-Man. Adam and Adora return to the rebel camp. Bow is quick to congratulate Adam on his capture of Force Captain Adora, but Adam reveals she is his sister and that Shadow Weaver was controlling her with a spell. Adora declares that she wants to join the Great Rebellion. Glimmer expresses great concern over her mother, Queen Angella. Angella is being held prisoner by the harpies of Talon Mountain. Adam and Adora volunteer to rescue the Queen, and out of sight transform into He-Man and She-Ra. The harpies are unable to prevent their entry into Talon Mountain. The harpy leader, Hunga, tries unsuccessfully to stop the rescue. He-Man breaks Angella's restrictive collar and the Queen journeys back with them to the Whispering Woods. Back at the woods Queen Angella and Glimmer are reunited. She-Ra feels that the rebellion can now stand on its own, so she feels safe in taking a trip to Eternia. As Adam, Adora, Cringer, and Spirit walk to the dimensional portal, two Horde Troopers spot them and report to Hordak. Furious that Adora may be leaving Etheria, Hordak assumes his rocket form and goes through the portal too. The Sorceress takes Adam and Adora to the Royal Palace. Hordak crashlands into the Evergreen Forest and realizes he is back on Eternia. King Randor, Queen Marlena, and Man-At-Arms are overjoyed to see Adora again. Meanwhile, Hordak enters Snake Mountain and discovers his old pupil Skeletor is still around. The two allow their old tensions to resurface in a duel. Finally, they settle on a truce: Skeletor will help Hordak capture the traitor he is looking for, then Hordak will leave Skeletor and Eternia alone.
