Adora, Glimmer, Bow, and Kowl are going to Blackmoor Castle to attend the Rebel Fair, which serves as a celebration of the start of the Rebellion. They are attacked by Leech, Mantenna, and Scorpia, and just as the rebels face defeat, a mysterious man on horseback who introduces himself as the Red Knight appears to help them escape. The rebels and the Red Knight travel forward to the Rebel Fair, where they find Queen Angella. The Red Knight's voice seems familiar to Queen Angella, but the Red Knight swears that his name shall be a secret until Hordak's forces are defeated. When a runaway wagon endangers the life of the fair-goers, She-Ra appears to save the life of a peasant, while Bow attempts to stop the wagon. When Bow is unsuccessful, the Red Knight is able to jump aboard and stop the wagon. Bow heads off to participate in the Rebels' Run competition, anxious to win it because She-Ra will personally present an award to the winner. Imp has been spying at the fair, and returns to Hordak, telling him of the Red Knight's acts of bravery. Hordak plans to take advantage of the opportunity to kidnap Queen Angella outside of the protections of Bright Moon by using his newest device, the Laser Bubble Blaster. The Rebels' Run is a close one, with the Red Knight and Bow closely competing with one another. When the Red Knight is able to outsmart Bow several times, he ends up winning, and She-Ra presents the Red Knight as the new champion. Bow looks on despondently, hurt that he lost. He rides Arrow out of Blackmoor, telling an upset Kowl that he is going "away." She-Ra goes to find and comfort Bow, not knowing that the Horde are preparing their attack. She-Ra finds Bow and Arrow at a campfire in the Whispering Woods. Bow admits he was too embarrassed to face the crowd, and especially She-Ra. Meanwhile, Queen Angella again sees something familiar in the Red Knight's voice, but Hordak interrupts them. Kowl watches from the window and flies away. She-Ra assures Bow that he has no reason to be ashamed as long as he did his best. Bow realizes he did his best and cheers up. Angella, Glimmer, and the Red Knight are used as bait in a trap, but She-Ra arrives and quickly disposes of the Horde. Bow is able to win the day, though, by firing an arrow to clog Hordak's Laser Bubble Blaster, and it backfires, trapping him in a bubble which She-Ra sends bouncing out the door. The Red Knight congratulates and admires Bow for his great skill. Again the Red Knight asserts that his identity will remain a mystery until Etheria is free. The rebels cheer for that day.
