Episode Summary

EDIT

New Thundera is being torn apart and the Thundercats must present certain artifacts at various dangerous locations that used to be beautiful places, then Lion-O must go into the book and give the Key of Thundera to the guardian of the book "at the 24th hour," or the Thundercats will be frozen in time and New Thundera will be destroyed. But Mumm-Ra steals the book and key and journeys into the book himself. He wants to save New Thundera BUT wants the Thundercats frozen in time. The Ancient Spirits of Evil try to stop Mumm-Ra because they fear if Mumm-Ra goes into the book, their powers will cease to exist. The other Thundercats run into problems also at the locations they are supposed to be at. Lion-O goes into the book using the Sword of Omens and battles Mumm-Ra one on one, neither of them using any magic. Even when Mumm-Ra cheats, Lion-O still wins. The ASOE summon their "champion," Pyron, to then fight Lion-O, but Lion-O gets the dragons in the book to fry him... He presents the key and releases the ThunderCat signal, which turns into a black puma. It runs to all the TCats, unfreezes them, and restores the places to their original state... just in time.

  • Great endind for a great show.

    8.7
    This was such a superb way to end a classic show. While the whole series had been leading up to the final battle between the the forces of good and evil, the ending has to be seen to be believed. When Lion-o and Mumm-Ra fight within the Book of Omens, the viewers are made to experience that this is truly the last battle, and that only one of the combatants will walk away. When Lion-O raises his sword and shouts Thundercats, the viewer is at once joyful because good has won, but at the same time saddened because they know it is the final time they will see the adventures of the Thundercats.moreless
