  • Trivia

    • Given Sibylline's reputation as one of Eternia'sdeadliest villains, why has she never been mentioned before? Also, everybody (save Orko)is willing - if not eager -to give her the benefit ofa doubt.Wouldthey be nearly asopen if, say,Skeletorannounced that he'd reformed?Are bad reputations really this easy to shake off, or are the Heroic Warriors just suckers for a pretty face?

  • Quotes

    • Teela: As you saw into today's story, people can change.
      He-Man: Right, Teela. Sibylline had always been an evil sorceress, but she was able to change her ways for the better. Maybe there's something about yourself that you don't like; a bad habit maybe.

    • (Randor decides to send the heroes to the Isle of Tears to help Sybilline free King Danton)
      He-Man: Ah, just what everybody needs, a magical island holiday.

    • King Randor: All people are capable of change.
      Queen Malena: And we must always be open and willing to give them the chance to change.
      Teela: It's easy to say 'I can't change', but the truth is you can change.
      He-Man: And the first step is saying to yourself, 'I can'.
