Episode Summary

Gateway To Trouble
On Eternia, Skeletor's scientist Modulok has created a Gate-Maker machine that can transport entire cities to other planets, and Skeletor plans to use it to transport Eternos to Etheria. But Modulok is sick of Skeletor's disrespectful treatment of him, so he betrays him and takes the machine to Etheria to give it to Hordak. Skeletor angrily follows Modulok to Etheria, where Hordak has recruited Modulok as his scientist and is planning to use the Gate-Maker to invade Eternia. As long-time enemies Skeletor and Hordak battle for control of the Gate-Maker, it is up to both She-Ra and He-Man to stop the villains before they invade Eternia!moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Since Tung Lashor was working for Skeletor in this episode, the best the animators could have done was replace Tung Lashor's Horde Bat symbol with a Snake symbol.

      • Modulok turns on Skeletor in this episode to join Hordak and The Evil Horde.

      • Loo-Kee's Moral: Always do your best to not get into trouble.

      • When She-Ra turns her sword to handcuffs and goes over
        Skeletor's body, she still has her sword in her hand.

      • Skeletor states that Etheria has 'been a thorn in his side for years' thus implying he's been battling with Hordak and She-Ra for many years- but at such an early stage in the series, surely it's not that long since Skeletor was reunited with Etheria? You wouldn't even think a year had passed!

      • Why is Tung Lashor working for Skeletor all of a sudden- especially when he's still wearing his Horde bat symbol!

    • QUOTES (3)

    • NOTES (3)

      • This episode features the only appearance of Battle Cat in She-Ra aside from the commencing 5-parter- and more importantly, it is his final appearance ever in either show.

      • A curious element of this episode is that Tung Lashor (here referred to as Tung Lash) is shown on the side of Skeletor, rather than Hordak. This is not explained, but oddly enough his fellow Snake Men Rattlor was also inexplicably shown on the side of Skeletor in the She-Ra Christmas Special.

      • This episode sees Modulok, who first appeared in He-Man's season 2, crossing over to the She-Ra series. He was to remain part of the cast of She-Ra, appearing in several more episodes, and has the unique trait of being the only character from the He-Man series to permanently cross over to the She-Ra series.
