A battalion of Batmeks are pursuing a fugitive ship which has escaped from Horde World. Horde Prime personally directs that the prisoner be captured and brought back, but the fugitive refuses. He activates his ship's thrusters and travels at light speed to elude the Batmeks, setting course for his home, Etheria. At the Whispering Woods, Glimmer is speaking to Bow, describing the loss of her father and its effect on Queen Angella, her mother, especially since the present day is their wedding anniversary.

Glimmer longs to see her father, and as she daydreams about dancing with her father after he's been missing for so many years, she dances off a cliff, catching a tree branch. Adora and Spirit transform into She-Ra and Swift Wind, and fly to catch Glimmer as she falls. They all head back to Bright Moon, as the fugitive's ship crashes at Talon Mountain, the home of Hunga and her harpies. The fugitive emerges from the ship and immediately collapses to the ground.

Queen Angella tells She-Ra the story of her husband's absence. After the Horde arrived on Etheria, King Micah needed to take the battle to the Horde, and so he left to battle them, but he was captured, and Angella and Glimmer have been unable to learn of his whereabouts ever since. At that moment, King Micah awakens as a prisoner of the harpies, where he meets Hunga, who instantly recognizes him as the former King of Bright Moon. Hunga decides to lure Queen Angella into a trap, and thus uses her magic to contact Bright Moon, where she shows Angella and Glimmer that she has captured Micah. She-Ra orders him released, but Queen Angella resolves to go to Talon Mountain and free him, and trusts She-Ra to protect her daughter from danger.

As she leaves, Angella reassures Glimmer that she loves her dearly and needs to do anything she can to help her family. At the same time, Hordak has been contacted by Horde Prime and instructed to capture Micah, and so Hordak dispatches Tung Lashor to the task. At Talon Mountain Angella arrives and reunites with her husband, but the harpies soon take her prisoner and refuse to release Micah. Glimmer urges She-Ra to intervene and protect both her parents, and She-Ra agrees.

They arrive at Talon Mountain just as Tung Lashor's battalion of Batmeks enter the fray. The harpies focus their attentions on the Batmeks, allowing She-Ra and Glimmer to enter Talon Mountain, where Glimmer reunites with her father and helps She-Ra free her parents. Hunga attempts to stop them as they leave Talon Mountain, but Angella vows that this is her fight. Angella dodges and confounds Hunga, and realizing time is of the essence, She-Ra enters the fray and tosses her away.

They all escape Talon Mountain, and King Micah returns to Bright Moon with his family. However, Micah tells his family that he will remain with his family for a time, but also that he must soon rejoin the fight against the Horde, alongside the people that he rules. He has been a prisoner of Horde World, and he vows that Etheria must never transform into such a place of evil, so he resolves to continue the fight against the Horde.
