    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Hordak: Why have you summoned me?
        Keldor: I am dying. Save me, Hordak, so I can continue my conquest of Etenia.
        Hordak: The price for this is high.
        Keldor: No price is too great.
        Hordak: Very well.
        (Keldor goes under a grotesque transformation.)
        Evil-Lyn: Keldor?
        Hordak: Keldor is no more. There is only...Skeletor!

    • NOTES (8)

      • Actually the first connection between Hordak and Skeletor was hinted in an episode of She-Ra in which the two were fighting each other and Hordak said that it was him to teach magic to Skeletor (which by the way was quite an unlogic assertion, since in the series Hordak was a shapeshifter and couldn't do any magic...)

      • In response to the comments about Evil-lyn's magic; her hands were chained, just as they were when she was imprisoned in "Council of Evil." This gives the impression that she has to gesture with her hands to use magic.

      • This is the first time Evil-Lyn was seen without her helmet in this series. In the original series her white hair was seen when she took off he helmet while stuck in a desert with Teela in "The Witch and the Warrior"

      • We know from previous episodes (as well as the original Filmation series) that Evil Lyn is capable of wielding powerful magic without the assistance of her staff.... yet this episode gives the impression that she is helpless without it. In particular, we see in the episode "Siren's Song", that Evil Lyn can fly (in both her Siren and Natural forms)... so why would she allow herself to FALL into a portal???

        Not only is Keldor's face/teeth/musculature altered during his transformation to Skeletor; but also his breastplate and upper garments.

      • For the first time ever, in cartoon form, we get to see Skeletor without his hood.

        Response: This is not entirely true. The "New Adventures of He-man" (while not the same series/continuity) did contain several episodes of Skeletor without a hood. In fact, the entire series was done with Skeletor wearing a helmet instead.

      • A lot of history is revealed here. We learn how Evil-lyn joined Skeletor's Horde, as well as just how Keldor made the transition to Skeletor (and the first connection between Hordak and Skeletor is made in this version of the series).

      • We get a look at Trap-Jaw before he became a cyborg. His name is Kronis. According to Cartoonnetwork.com, he became a cyborg when he was attacked by the Elders. He was rebuilt into what he is now.

      • For the first time we see Evil-Lyn without her helmet

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Megatron: Rebirth
        This may be more coincidence than anything, but Keldor's rebirth into Skeletor slightly mirrors Megatron's reformatting into Galvatron in "Transformers: The Movie". In both cases, Keldor and Megatron were mortally wounded in battle with their archnemesis (Keldor:Randor, Megatron:Optimus Prime) and were given new forms and identities by a powerful entity (in Keldor's case, Hordak; in Megatron's, Unicron). As I mentioned before, it's probably just coincidence.

      • Demon: Appearance
        The demon that Skeletor summons from the Pool may have been inspired by the horror stories of author H.P. Lovecraft (such as "Call of Cthulu"); in his stories, slime, tentacles, and cold eyes were a common theme.
