Feature Story 2: "Meteor Menace", Cont'd
Extendar avoids the Rock Warrior by shrinking to his normal size. Then, once all the Rock People are caught, the heroic warriors land and wait for the Rock People to recover. When they do, Stonedar's mind is cloudy, and at first he mistakes He-Man for an enemy... but then his memory suddenly returns, and he remembers He-Man, and realises that Skeletor had put them under a spell. In Snake Mountain, skeletor has become aware that the meteors have not destroyed Eternos, but still believes the Rock People's minds are clouded, and so they will destroy the heroic warriors. Believing the heroic warriors are occupied, Skeletor orders his army to march on Castle Grayskull. But when they reach the castle, they find the entrance guarded by a group of Rock People, and heroic warriors, led by He-Man! Skeletor retreats, then the Rock People set off for one of Eternia's moons, which is to be their new home. Rokkon and Stonedar stay on Eternia, to help He-Man.
