At Castle Grayskull the Masters are battling the Evil Warriors. As the villains makes their escape Man-At-Arms learns that Teela has been injured and needs blood. Man-At-Arms carries Teela towards Castle Grayskull.

At the Royal Palace Teela awakens to discover the Masters at her bedside. Teela begins to hear their thoughts. Man-At-Arms is informed by Man-E-Faces that he thinks Teela read his mind. Man-At-Arms peers around the door and witnesses Teela's telepathic abilities. Man-At-Arms informs Prince Adam that he cannot enter the room as Teela has telepathic powers. When Adam asks how she obtained them Man-At-Arms recalls the blood given to her by the Sorceress. Man-At-Arms tells Adam that Teela would be able to read his mind and learn of his secret, but that he himself has learned to guard his thoughts and feelings. Man-At-Arms enters Teela's room, as Teela immediately asks questions. Man-At-Arms tells Teela that the place was Castle Grayskull, and that the woman inside is known as the Sorceress. Teela asks who the Sorceress is, but telepathically hears the Sorceress' voice, telling her that she must not ask such questions. Teela not understanding lies back down to rest.

At Snake Mountain Evil-Lyn states that a female on Eternia has recently developed telepathic powers, a novice that is unable to shield her frequency. Evil-Lyn is disgusted when she learns that it is Teela. At Castle Grayskull Man-At-Arms tells the Sorceress that she is tormenting Teela by refusing to give her the one thing she needs; her mother. At the Royal Palace Teela telepathically hears the voice of Evil-Lyn preparing an attack on the Masters. Unknown to Teela, Evil-Lyn is deliberately letting her hear her thoughts. Teela gathers the Masters and head towards the Sands of Time.

At Castle Grayskull Man-At-Arms states that he will tell Teela the identity of her mother. The Sorceress thanks Man-At-Arms taking care of Teela, but coldly commands that Teela must not know. Learning that Teela has gone, Man-At-Arms, He-Man and Battle Cat leap aboard the Wind Raider. At the Sands of Time Teela realizes the telepathic message to be a trick, as Beast Man's creatures attack them. He-Man arrives and effortlessly defeats the creatures. Just as Teela explains how she received a telepathic message, she hears another voice in her head. The Sorceress tells her to touch her own heart, informing Teela that her heart beats as the Sorceress' does, just as her blood runs through Teela's veins. Teela knows the message to be true, and the Masters head to Castle Grayskull. Skeletor attacks Castle Grayskull, as the Sorceress taps The Council of Elders' power.

An extremely powerful shield surrounds Castle Grayskull. Skeletor concludes that the Elders power is stored within Castle Grayskull. The Masters arrive and engage in heated combat with the Evil Warriors. In defeat Skeletor and the Evil warriors flee. As the heroes gather, Teela tells Man-At-Arms that she wishes to enter Castle Grayskull. Teela wanders the castle calling out the name of the Sorceress. Teela remarks that she knows that the Sorceress is not telling her something. The Sorceress states that the reason she gave Teela her blood, is because she is the only one who could. A confused Teela leaves Castle Grayskull, not receiving her answer. Later Man-At-Arms appears before the Sorceress and states that he sees now the sacrifice that the Sorceress has made. She replies that the day will come when Teela will learn of her destiny. The Sorceress states that she loves Teela more than Man-At-Arms can imagine.
