Back in Eternos, Prince Adam is summoned to Grayskull by the Sorceress. She tells him that once more she has seen visions of a great darkness coming from the lost kingdom of Anwat Gar, only this time she knows that the threat does not stem from the machinations of Skeletor. No, this time it is one of Adam's own allies who will unleash the danger. Adam turns into He-Man and hurries to Anwat Gar with Man-At-Arms and Battle Cat. They find Sy-Klone uncovering a hidden passageway in one of Anwat Gar's mountains. They try to speak to him, but he he will not listen. He is sure the Stone exists, and that it is his duty to protect it, the last talisman of his homeland. He-Man and Man-At-Arms follow him into the dark caves beneath the island. There, they find a huge cavern full of unmoving stone soldiers. Above them, on a floating alter of rock lies a glowing stone, the last of the Legacy Stones.
"It's dangerous," He-Man tells Sy-Klone. "The Sorceress warned us--"
"No," Sy-Klone yells, sounding very different from his usually calm self. "I will not let you destroy this stone. It is part of me. You took from me my one true purpose when you destroyed the other stones. I will not let you take this from me as well." He fights them, forcing them to retreat while he flies toward the stone. He-Man warns Sy-Klone to stop, begs him not to force him to hurt him. "We each have our purpose," Sy-Klone realizes. "I did not want to be your enemy, but if this is the only way, then so be it." And with that, he activates the Stone. Green light blinds He-Man momentarily as Sy-Klone and the Stone merge into one.
Possessed by the Stone, Sy-Klone speaks an ancient spell and the cavern begins to quake. The power of the third Legacy Stone is obviously far greater than its brothers, and the very mountain begins to break apart around them. The stone soldiers begin to glow and move with an unnatural life, and above everything He-Man and Man-At-Arms hear the voice of their former ally before the cavern completely disappears in a blast of light.
The first thing we see when the debris begins to settle is that He-Man has reverted to Adam. The power unleashed by the Legacy Stone somehow severed his link to Grayskull. He finds Man-At-Arms, Cringer, and himself all surrounded by the stone soldiers. They lead the Eternians to the surface, where they are stunned to see that Anwat Gar has suddenly become a much larger island. Huge ships hover above, and human soldiers stand waiting for the prisoners to emerge. The man leading the army is huge, possessing a malevolent grin and a large golden hand.
