My heart broke when Hordak took Adora away from her family the second time
When Adora went through the portal back to Eternia with Adam and Cringer, Hordak turned himself into a rocket and made it through the shrinking portal by a split second. He just wouldn't let Adora go. Hordak was obsessed with Adora, in a sick way.
Well, he succeeded once again in kidnapping her, with the help of Skeletor. Adora escaped, but the damage had already been done in Adora's mind.
That's why Adora decided to go back to Etheria. King Randour even asked her if it was Hordak who was responsible for her choosing to leave Eternia by successfully invading the palace to get to her; Adora confirmed that that was the reason. She said that as long as she stayed on Eternia Hordak would come after her and not let her go, and she didn't want to put her loved ones at risk from the Horde.
If Hordak would not have followed Adora to Eternia, Adora would have stayed on Eternia. It was rotten luck that Hordak was able to squeeze through the shrinking portal. It totally changed the course of Adora's life from family togetherness on Eternia back toward permanent separation and tragedy on Etheria. It broke the hearts of Adam and his mom and dad, to be reunited with Adora after all this time only to have her leave again due to Hordak being able to follow her to Eternia. What cruel twist of fate is this that the portal didn't close up before Hordak could reach it.
This made my heart sink. It was frustrating and infuriating. It broke my heart. To think that Hordak, by barely making it through the portal back to Eternia by a split second, was able to draw Adora back to Etheria for good.
Hordak permanently broke up the royal family; this time for good. He got the last laugh.
Thanks everyone for making me feel better.
I'm sorry for being so negative guys.
You all have helped me to cope.
I'll try to look on the bright side and be more positive.
Thank You :)
Maybe watching the He-man and She-ra "A Christmas Special" will lift my spirits.
Part of me wishes Adora and Adam weren't sister and brother
I really wish He-man and She-ra could get together and be a power couple. They look gorgeous together. They'd be perfect for each other.
I need a Classic 80's He-man and She-ra expert
I'm searching for answers that will help me achieve some measure of closure.
What stopped Lou Scheimer and Filmation from completing the story of She-ra? Did Lou just lose interest in the show?
Why wasn't there a complete 65-episode Season 2 of She-ra like there was with He-man? Isn't a complete season produced before it's released (ie. aired). Are the rest of the episodes of She-ra in a vault somewhere, never to be released?
What prevented Filmation from resolving the conflict with the Horde and setting Etheria free, so that Adora could return to her family on Eternia.
He-man alluded to Etheria some day being free from the rule and oppression of the Horde at the end of the episode "The Price of Freedom". Why wasn't this ever realized in the writing.
She-ra told the Sorceress that she would come back to them. Why wasn't she able to keep her promise.
What prevented Filmation from completing the He-man and She-ra canon, and leave Adam and Adora in a good place-----together.
Sorceress to Adora: "Come back to us." Adora to Sorceress: "I will."
Adora didn't have any real, close, or good friends on Etheria when Adam arrived.
Remember, Adam met Bow, Glimmer, Madame Raz, Broom, Kowl, and the Twiggits and made friends with them while Adora was still part of the Horde.
Adora's friends were Hordak, Shadow Weaver, Katra, Leech, Grizzlor, Mantanna, and Scorpia.
Adam took Adora back to the Whispering Woods. He had barely introduced her to the rebels when they went back to Eternia to meet her real parents, so the rebels weren't really Adora's friends yet. They were Adam and Cringer's friends. Adora hadn't yet had a chance to form close, personal relationships with any of them.
So, when Adora decided to go back to Etheria, she really didn't have any close friends to go back to. The people that really loved her and knew her were on Eternia (Mother, Father, Adam, Man-At-Arms, The Sorceress).
Adora went back because Hordak was able to chase her down to her family's palace on Eternia, and she was afraid of putting her family in danger. Adora realized Hordak would come after her now that he knew where she was. He would never let her live in peace on Eternia.
So the argument that she had good friends that she was close to in Etheria is null and void. All the people she really knew well in Etheria at that time were part of the Horde.
Adora hadn't yet had a chance to forge any real relationships with the rebels when she chose Etheria as her home. Adam did.
As far as my being a selfish, weak, and immoral person, that might be hitting a little too close to home.
I wish Adora and Adam would have gone back to Eternia under the cover of the Whispering Woods where no one could see them leaving. That way Hordak could not have followed them and Adora would have stayed on Eternia, changing the whole course of Adora's life for the better.
Do you think "The Secret of the Sword" episodes should have rated 'M' for Mature
And why didn't the Sorceress call on Zodac to help find baby Adora, like she successfully did in the "Searching for He-man" episode when Skeletor banished He-man to another dimension. They were able to find He-man. Why couldn't they do the same for baby Adora?
One of my favorite episodes
One of the top episodes of She-ra, as voted by the fans, is "Horde Prime Takes a Holiday".
It's one of my favorites because the episode ended with Adam having dinner together with Adora and the rebels. He usually always goes home right after winning a battle with the Horde as He-man, with She-ra. To see Adam and Adora sitting side-by-side at the end of the episode as Adam recounted the story, and Adora listening and laughing, really warmed my heart. I was glad to see that Adam at least sometimes hangs out for a while on Etheria, rather than rush right home.
Then to top it all off, instead of Lookie, they showed He-man and She-ra at the palace on Eternia standing really close, side-by-side, together, telling kids how to protect their bodies from sexual predators. It showed that Adora does go home to Adam and her mom and dad, and spends time with them. It's the only time during the show's run where you see He-man and She-ra together on the palace grounds on Eternia.
It was nice to see the princess at her palace.
That really made me smile :)
Perhaps they could make a cartoon sitcom revolving around Adora's life at the palace, after she defeats the Horde, frees Etheria, and comes back home to Eternia to make a new life for herself. It could be about her family dynamics, her dating, having to keep her identity a secret from her boyfriends, and ending with her getting married and living happily ever after.
Maybe there's a way to write in Adam and Adora finding out they aren't really brother and sister and have them fall in love and get married. He-man and She-ra looked awesome standing together at the palace on Eternia. They'd make the perfect couple.
Wouldn't that be wonderful!
