This episode - the darkest toned of the series - marks the second of two times in the series that He-Man and Skeletor are forced to join forces, the other occasion being in the memorable first season episode "Evilseed".
Whiplash seems to recover remarkably quickly from his injuries- given how badly hurt he was, once he's out of the palace he seems fine, as if nothing ever happened!
Fisto: Hi there. In today's story we had a tough job to do and the only way we could do it was to get some help and work together. Now there are always jobs and problems that are too tough to handle alone, and when that happens, you should never be ashamed to admit you need help. Likewise, if someone asks you for help, give them a hand. Yours may not be as big as mine, but it'll still be appreciated. And if I can ever give you a hand, just let me know.
He-Man: Skeletor! Follow us to Castle Grayskull.
Skeletor: I know the way, He-Man. I've been there before.
