Repairs to the Royal Palace are being watched by King Randor and Queen Marlena, and by the Evil Warriors via a Doomseeker. Back at the Royal Palace Orko approaches Man-At-Arms wishing to help in the repairs. Orko notices the Masters trying to raise a statue and casts a spell, making the statue levitate into the skies. Man-At-Arms ordering Orko to stop the spell grabs the Trollan's hands breaking the spell. The large statue falls, and topples, striking the next statue, in a bizarre domino effect. Orko leaves in shame.

At Snake Mountain Skeletor tells the Evil Warriors of the Ram Stone. Evil-Lyn informs Skeletor that a being called the Faceless One guards the Ram Stone. Skeletor states that with Beast Man and Trapjaw's help, Evil-Lyn should have no problem defeating the being, as a downhearted Orko arrives at Castle Grayskull, wishing to speak to the Sorceress. Mekaneck witnesses the villains making their way to Zalesia, and immediately contacts Man-At-Arms.

At Castle Grayskull Orko tells the Sorceress that he was hoping that she could send him back to Trolla. The Sorceress tells Orko that it will take time, and so beckons him to enter the library. In the library Orko meets an old man, who claims that Orko is famous in the "Book of Yesterdays," a book that charts all of the important events in Eternia's history. Orko notices that the book notes the day when he first arrived on Eternia, landing in the Tar Swamp, saving Prince Adam and Cringer.

At the Temple of the Ram Stone the Faceless One strikes down Beast Man and Trapjaw, but Evil-Lyn blasts the Faceless One through the walls of the temple. As Evil-Lyn leaves the temple He-Man, Battle Cat and Man-At-Arms arrive. Evil-Lyn casts a spell that creates a sandstorm, enabling her to escape on a Terrordactyl. He-Man and Battle Cat leave for Castle Grayskull as Man-At-Arms prepares to battle Beast Man and Trapjaw. At Castle Grayskull's library Orko continues to examine the book, where he sees another day in his life. The old man tells Orko that he always finds a way to help when his friends need it most. The old man senses evil and leaves. Outside Castle Grayskull Evil-Lyn hands the Ram Stone to Skeletor, just as the old man approaches the Sorceress' throne, revealing himself to be the Sorceress. Just as Skeletor prepares to use the Ram Stone He-Man and Battle Cat appear.

Battle Cat is injured by the Ram Stone, as He-Man marches toward Skeletor. He-Man uses his sword to deflect a huge blast from the Ram Stone. The blast begins to penetrate He-Man himself, and without warning he is transformed back into Prince Adam, and thrown far away. The Sorceress leaves to aid He-Man, just as Skeletor uses the Ram Stone to penetrate the protective shield that surrounds Castle Grayskull. Prince Adam regains consciousness. Orko confronts Skeletor in an attempt to delay the villain; allowing Adam to transform into He-Man. Unknown to Skeletor Evil-Lyn manages to retrieve the Ram Stone. He-Man punches Skeletor far from Castle Grayskull. Skeletor escapes on a Terrordactyl, as Battle Cat reappears unharmed. The Sorceress states that Orko should be proud of saving Castle Grayskull, and that it will be a proud memory for him to take back to Trolla. He-Man is surprised at Orko's wish to journey back to Trolla, but Orko states that he has changed his mind. At Snake Mountain Skeletor rants and raves as Evil-Lyn smiles to herself.

Back at the Temple of the Ram Stone the Faceless One recovering from his battle with the Evil Warriors, notices that the Ram Stone has been returned. The Faceless One remarks to himself that there may be hope yet for Evil-Lyn, his daughter.
