King Randor, Queen Marlena, Adam, Adora, and Cringer enjoy a lively discussion about the wayward magicians in their lives, Madame Razz and Orko. Orko is away visiting his uncle Montork in Trolla. Meanwhile, Webstor and Kobra Khan assault a pair of guards. Skeletor and Beast Man follow, bringing with them a large cake on a wheeled cart. Skeletor uses his magic to disguise all of his allies. Skeletor pretends to be Chef Alan, and introduces the cake to the royal family. Suddenly, the cake turns into Hordak and all the villains are revealed. Hordak blasts the Royal Family, knocking them all unconscious. He carries Adora out of the Palace. Tri-Klops is waiting with the Collector, and all of the villains escape successfully. Man-At-Arms tries to console the devastated King and Queen. As he suggests that a small party will be the best group to rescue Adora, and so He-Man, Man-At-Arms, Battle Cat, and Teela head for Snake Mountain. Meanwhile, Hordak prepares to re-enter Etheria through a portal. At the last minute, Trap Jaw and Webstor push Hordak into the portal, fulfilling Skeletor's betrayal. Adora pretends to faint, and Beast Man carries her to a prison cell. She tricks Beast Man and locks him inside the cell. She retrieves the Sword of Protection and transforms into She-Ra. She finds Skeletor, who is trying to contact King Randor to demand ransom. She-Ra quickly dispenses of Webstor and Kobra Khan, then defeats Skeletor. The Heroic Warriors find the triumphant She-Ra, who assures them that Adora is safe. Back at the Royal Palace, Adora tells her mother and father that she must return to Etheria and free her planet from the Horde. Both Randor and Marlena are upset that they will be without their daughter, but accept Adora's decision. The Sorceress sends Adora and Spirit back to Etheria. Adam and Cringer surprise them by following them into Etheria to help the Great Rebellion get off to a good start. When they see a fleet of Horde fliers they transform into He-Man and She-Ra and join the rebels in Whispering Woods. The rebels plan to drive the Horde out of Castle Bright Moon, as Queen Angella launches the attack. The Horde fights back with Destructo Tanks, Batmeks, and stun beams. The rebels work together to defeat these obstacles. One of the blasts hits Swift Wind, and he falls to the ground. She-Ra is able to heal Swift Wind using one of her magical powers. He-Man and She-Ra enter Bright Moon, and the frustrated Hordak flees. She-Ra realizes that it is her destiny to stay on Etheria and fight for freedom. He-Man understands that she cannot come back to Eternia, and as they part ways He-Man sheds a tear after declaring, "Farewell, She-Ra, Princess of Power!"
