Episode Summary

EDIT
The Sorceress summons He-Man to Castle Grayskull, which appears to be being haunted, the jaw bridge smashing repeatedly against the edge of the abyss, and the eyes flashing! Inside it is even weirder, full of grotesque holographic images of demons! The Sorceress has no idea what is going on, and Orko suggests that someone from the spirit dimension may be trying to contact The Sorceress. Using the window of the ancients, The Sorceress manages to trace the source of the haunting- the spirit of a magician called Zanthor, who was formerly a member of the Council of the Wise, but was exiled into the spirit world when he sold the Golden Disks of Knowledge to Skeletor, giving him the knowledge he needed to enter Eternia and build Snake Mountain. Zanthor wishes to amend for his crime by helping He-Man get the Disks back.

So The Sorceress summons Zodac- the only remaining member of the Council of the Wise- and Zodac grants Zanthor temporary entrance into Eternia, though he must remain in spirit form until he can prove he is sincere. Zanthor then accompanies He-Man, Battle Cat and Orko to Snake Mountain, to find where Skeletor is keeping the Golden Disks of Knowledge.moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The moral of this episode is second chances. It's important to give our friends a chance to make up for their mistakes. Of course, if they continue to do wrong we might think about if you really want them for a friend or not. But many wrong doers do see the error of their ways, all they need is a second chance. Everybody diserves that.

      • The Sorceress is written very poorly in this episode (well by now we're pretty familiar with David Wise messing up character portrayals). She comes across as uncharacteristically narrow-minded and arrogant in the scene where Zanthor tries to peruade her to let him amend for his crime, at first totally refusing to believe he has changed and deserves a second chance. Also, why does Orko realise that someone is trying to contact The Sorceress before he Sorceress herself does? This serves to greatly flaw her character, making out that even Orko is more intelligent than her!

    • QUOTES (1)

      • He-Man: In today's episode Zanthor committed a crime, but when he was given a chance to make up for it, he came through with flying colors. You know, it's important to give our friends a chance to make up for their mistakes. Of course if they continue to do wrong, we might want to think about whether we really want them for a friend or not. But many wrongdoers do see the error of their ways. All they need is a second chance. Everybody deserves that.
