Episode Summary

An inventor called Zicran visits the Royal Palace to deliver a Transmutator machine to Man-At-Arms, accompanied by his daughter Ileena, a friend of Teela's. Ileena is vulnerable and lacking in self-confidence, feeling inferior compared to Teela's agility.

Meanwhile, an evil sorcerer called Jarvan, who was previously defeated by He-Man and Man-At-Arms, has escaped from the prison mines and has set his sights on the Transmutator. Preying on Ileena's depression, he disguises himself as a kindly old woman and gives Ileena a 'magic potion' that will boost her confidence and strength. But the potion contains a dangerous drug, and Ileena soon finds herself addicted to the drug, and almost causes several serious accidents while under its effects. She also finds herself unwittingly obeying Jarvan's commands, and helps him to obtain the Transmutator! Can the heroic warriors cure Ileena's addiction before she causes more damage to herself and the people around her?moreless
