04x06 - Spellbound

Sensei Wu: Previously on Ninjago.

Nya: Jay?

All: Nya?

Nya: I'm undercover.

Kai: That means you can close to Clouse's spell book.

Clouse: Get that spell!

Anacondrai Soldier: Master Cole has gone missing.

Jay: Aah! My leg!

Nya: Someone in your circle of trust is a spy.

Jay: Who do you think it is?

Master Chen: We will break up the ninja forever.

(Theme song plays)

Sensei Wu: Episode 40 - Spellbound.

Jay: What re you looking at, Zippy?

Griffin Turner: The next one out of the tournament.

Jay: Uh, heh.

Kai: Why so scared to show us your back, Shadow? Worried we're gonna find a tattoo and know you're working for Chen?

Shade: I hope this next fight is between you and me because I'm gonna put you on your back.

Mr. Pale: (Whistles)

Skylor: Do you mind?

Sensei Garmadon: Tensions are high.

Lloyd: Yeah, not as high as we are now. Can hardly see the island from up here.

Nuero: I've had enough of this. I can't stand heights, Where's Chen? (Grunts)

Master Chen: How do I know if this thing's on? Oh, oh, oh, I see, the light. Oh, oh, I'm on? Right now? Ahem, ahem. Hello, final eight. I see you are all eager for the tournament to commence so one of you can win my Staff of Elements. Instead of fighting for a Jade Blade, today you will be fighting for something different.

Kai: Nya.

Skylor: You know her?

Kai: It's my sister.

Master Chen: We have an uninvited guest on the island.

Kai: And she must be holding the proof that will stop Chen.

Master Chen: Find her and you will automatically move on--

Kai: The spell he plans to use when he takes our powers.

Master Chen: --to the final found.

Jay: He wants us all to hunt her down? She won't stand a chance.

Lloyd: Then we have to tell her before anyone else does.

Master Chen: In 10 seconds the bottom will drop.

All: (Gasps)

Master Chen: But to show you I'm not a bad man, I've given you eight parachutes.

All: (Screaming)

Master Chen: Sensei Garmadon is there? Shoot, that makes nine. Oh well, I was never good at math. Heh. Toodle-oo.

Lloyd: That guy's love for trap doors is seriously getting on my nerves!

All: (Screaming)

Shade: (Grunting) (Laughing)

Jay: Lloyd, use our energy dragon!

Lloyd: (Grunting) I can't! I can't get it to work!

Jay: (Screaming) (Whimpering)

Griffin Turner: Get your own chute, lead shoot.

Jay: (Whimpering) Aah! I got one! I got one! Ha-ha-ha!

Lloyd: (Panting) (Grunting)

Sensei Garmadon: Your powers don't work because you aren't controlling your fear. Focus.

Lloyd: (Grunting)

Mr. Pale: (Laughing)

Lloyd: (Gasps)

Sensei Garmadon: Control your fear. Don't let it control you. Center yourself.

Kai: (Grunting) Huh? Whoa! There's only one parachute left.

Lloyd: We'll share.

Sensei Garmadon: They're only built for one. This is an easy decision.

Lloyd: You're right.

Sensei Gramadon: (Gasps) What have you done?

Lloyd: Control my fear.

Kai: Huh. He made it!

Jay: Ha, ha! Of course he did!

Sensei Garmadon: Thattaboy!

Nya: This doesn't look good.

Kai: Whoa! Ow! Oh, ow, ow, ow!

Jay: Hmm. (Grunting) Aah! Ugh. (Groans) Argh, That did not feel good.

Master Chen: Hail, combatants, I have left a few treats to help you in the hunt. I hope you use them visely. Clouse, why have I never had a mobile base? It's my favorite toy. Hoo, hoo. There's so many buttons and surprises. (Laughs)

Jay: Like I'll never trust a treat from you, Chen! Ouch, ouch, ouch. Okay, maybe just a small treat. Ouch, ouch, ouch.

Mech: Welcome, Master of Lightning.

Jay: Aah. Suddenly, my leg feels much better! I'm on my way, Nya!

Sensei Garmadon: If we're gonna find Nya before the others do, we've got a lot of ground to cover.

Lloyd: Look. Nya's footprints.

Sensei Garmadon: Huh? Nya is more clever than that. No, she wants everyone to follow these tracks. But only us to see this. Her Samurai X symbol.

Lloyd: Can I give you a lift?

Sensei Garmadon: Save your energy. It's best not to draw attention. Come on.

Misako: Nya, come in? Darreth? Can anyone read me? (Sighs)

Sensei Wu: Still no word?

Misako: Nothing. We've lost all communication. How can you be so calm? My husband and son are out there all alone.

Sensei Wu: As are my brother and pupils, but we must not let fear cloud our thinking. Sensei Garmadon is there to guide them through this. I have to believe so.

Anacondrai Soldier: Still no sign of Cole and that metal man?

Anacondrai Guard: They still haven't escaped the island. We'll find them. Search the labyrinth and lock this place down.

Karloff: All clear.

Both: (Gasps)

Cole: Okay, back to our plan to all of us getting out of here. Now, if we all tried to tackle one labyrinth, some of us would be sure to get lost. So that's not an option. But Zane here, he analyzed the sewer network.

Karloff: Sewer network? Isn't that stinky?

Cole: Hey, I'd blast my way out of here if I could, but all of our powers are gone.

Zane 2.0: The sewer network is old and can only sustain so much weight. But after adding up all of our combined masses, the pipes wil hold by the slimmest of margins.

Karloff: Did anyone else understand that?

Cole: He means it'll work.

All: It'll work!

Darreth: (Grunts)

Anacondrai Soldier: Get to work.

Darreth: Don't worry, boys, the Brown Ninja's here. But before I rescue you, can anyone show me how to make a Puffy Potsticker? Cole, you're here. And Zane. Is that you? Boy, have you changed.

Karloff: When metal friend say slimmest or margins, how slim?

Cole: (Sighs) It won't work. Back to the drawing board.

Zane 2.0: Argh.

Lloyd: You said before that Master Chen was your Sensei, but nothing else.

Sensei Garmadon: So, there are things from my past I am not proud of. Perhaps it's time for you to know the truth. After the Devourer bit me when I was a child, it took years for all of the evil to fully consume me.

Both: (Grunting)

Young Chen: Good Garmadon. Good Clouse. But you're both holding back. Might I add he wins this fight shall become my right hand and be granted lordship?

Young Garmadon: Ugh. (Grunting)

Young Clouse: (Grunts) He cheated, master. You told us spinjitzu was forbidden.

Young Chen: He did what he had to do to win. Congratulations, Lord Garmadon.

Garmadon: (Narrating) It was a time in our history when Man and Serpentine were not getting along. As our sides clashed, we hoped for a truce. But not Chen.

Young Chen: Oh, peace is so boring, but conflict and turmoil is so unpredictable and exciting.

Young Garmadon: But, Master Chen, even the Anacondrai are making concessions. There could be a truce, there could be--

Young Chen: Never trust a snake, Lord Garmadon. Remember that. Oh, don't look so sad. I've intercepted something that will make you feel better. A love letter. Apparently your patheric little brother feels the same about that girl you admire.

Young Garmadon: Aah, Misako.

Young Chen: His words are so heartfelt. They could sway how she feels about one of you. *Young Garmadon: I didn't write this, I shouldn't be reading it.

Young Chen: Didn't you? It could be your name on it. Certainly you feel the same.

Lloyd: Mom thought that letter was from you.

Sensei Garmadon: As I've told you, there are things in my past I'm not proud of, but I have no regrets. You wouldn't be here otherwise. My fear os losing Misako controlled me and led me down a dangerous path.

Clouse: Master, if our men couldn't find her, why do you think they will fare much better? If the girl gets that spell to a ninja, all of our plans will be jeopardized.

Master Chen: Oh, Clousey-Clouse. There's a reason why I'm the master and you're my pupil. Why should I worry about the remaining fighters rising up against me, when after today there'll be no fighters remaining? The little treats I gave them are tracking their every move. This little game isn't hunting the girl, it's about hunting them. Heh-heh-heh.

Clouse: Master, you are a devious one. Your time in this tournament has expired.

Shade: So the ninja were right all along. Chen was never gonna hand over that staff.

Clouse: Hmm. Only one can remain. And it will be Chen!

Shade: (Screaming)

Nya: (Gasps)

'Kai: Nya! Where are you? Nya? Is that you? (Grunts) Whoever's there, I;m fired up.

Skylor: It's just me.

Kai: (Sighs) I see you didn't pick up any of Chen's special treats either.

Skylor: Of course not, like I'd ever trust him. And I wanna find her to help you get the spell and stop Chen once and for all.

Kai: Maybe we should be together. Aah, that didn't come out right. Heh. I mean, it's a big island, so maybe if we were a couple... Argh! No. Uh, heh. What I;m trying to say is, um...

Skylor: You want me to help you find your sister. Of course, I'll follow you.

Kai: Heh. It's good to work with people you trust.

Skylor: Yes, I couldn;t agree more.

Clouse: Two fighters down, six remain. And this one was a bit hard to find.

Mr. Pale: Argh. You'll never get away with this, Chen.

Master Chen: Are you serious? Where have you been? I've been getting away with it time and time again. Oh, take him away, he's boring.

Mr. Pale: (Grunting)

Master Chen: Argh. You'd think create a trap door in this thing...

Clouse: Master, Skylor is with Kai.

Master Chen: Good.

Clouse: But we still don't know where Lloyd and Garmadon are.

Master Chen: Bad. Find them, Clouse. While you're at it, round up the rest of them.

Lloyd: Father, I don't understand. You trained under Chen, yet you fought beside Wu in the wars. What happened to the truce?

Sensei Garmadon: When Chen said, "Never trust a snake," he was right. The Serpentine struck first.

All: (Screaming) The Alliance of the Elemental Masters fought back. But they had never seen the likes of an Anacondrai warrior. They were bigger, smarter, natural leaders on the battlefield. The Anacondrai were a proud tribe who thought with every ounce of venom. There was no greater warrior in the land. And with them in command, they proved to be too much for the Alliance to handle.

Hypnobrai: We've taken the villiage, General Arcturus.

General Arcturus: Good. Only one can remain.

Sensei Garmadon: Chen stood to gain more if he sided with the Snakes and wanted me to help him. Though the evil in my veins tempted me, I wouldn't fight a war for him. I would only fight to see Misako again. From then on, Chen and I went our separate ways. So that I could join my brother in battle. We were the sins of the first spinjitzu master. And together, with the Elemental Alliance we stood a fighting chance.

Young Garmadon: Aah!

Sensei Garmadon: (Narrating) But Chen's influence changed all that. He found a way to turn the Alliance against each other. The battle was all but lost. But in our darkest hour, we found hope. And hope found a way to end the war. The Sepentine were divided and locked away in tombs. Chen and Clouse were exiled.

General Arcturus: We ask for mercy.

Woman: Mercy? Never heard of it.

Sensei Garmadon: (Narrating) And the Anacondrai generals were given the strictest sentence: Banishment to the Cursed Realm, so that will never set foot in Ninjago again.

Lloyd: Even after all the time, you never told Wu about your past with Chen?

Sensei Gramadon: What would I have said? I would have lost your mother, as well as my brother. Notto mention--

Lloyd: Someone once told me you need to control your fear, and not let fear control you.

Sensei Garmadon: Hm, you're right. Once we put all of us this behind us, I'll make things right. But first, we need to find Nya. Come on.

Cole: (Grunts) Okay, so maybe rolling ourselves up into giant egg rolls isn't the best plan. Anyone else another idea?

Karloff: Karloff used to be aeronautical engineer back in Metalonia. Work on roto jets. Just one could take out entire army.

Cole: Oh. Great idea. But two things: We don't have a roto jet, and what good is a jet if we're underground?

Darreth: Okay, don't mind me, carry on whatever business you all are doing.

Cole: Sure, we were only using that to hatch our escape. Darreth, what are you doing?

Darreth: Well, if there isn't a machine that makes Puffy Potstickers, by golly, I'm gonna make one.

Zane 2.0: That's it! Darreth, you've solved it.

Cole: How are Puffy Potstickers gonna help us?

Zane 2.0: We'll use machine parts to build the roto jet. Karloff, do you still remember the schematics of it?

Karloff: Of course.

Zane 2.0: Then it's set. Karloff and I will create a blueprint. Everyone else, find parts.

Cole: But we're underground.

Jay: (Sighs) Wrists tired. Must keep looking. Nya!

Clouse: I'm sorry, your search ends here. Your time in the tournament is over!

Jay: Magic's for wussies. I'll stick to good old nuts and bolts with a little ingenuity.

Clouse: You want ingenuity? Try this on for size.

Jay: Heh.

Clouse: Magic versus nuts and bolts. (Grunting)

Jay: Ha! Is that all the hocus-pocus you got?

Nya: Jay. Unh. Jay!

Jay: Nya! I've got my hands full at the moment. Did you find the spell?

Nya: Yes, it's right here! Chen plans to use everyone's elemental powers to...

Jay: What?

Clouse: Silence, girl!

Nya: (Gasps)

Jay: Go, Nya! Tell the others! I can't hold him for long!

Mech: Primary power obstructed. Automatic self-detonation in five, four--

Jay: Heh, heh. That's unfortunate.

Mech: --three, two...

Kai: Aah! That could be Nya, come on.

Skylor: Let me, I have a faster way. What are you waiting for? Your friends could be in trouble.

Kai: How did you just do that?

Skylor: I can absorb elemental power.

Kai: But the ice... Zane's never been in the tournament. You're the spy. You've seen Zane. You're working for Chen.

Skylor: I had to obey my father or else--

Kai: Chen's your father? Aah! Ugh.

Master Chen: Yes. And now your time in the tournament is over, Master of Fire. Take him, Skylor.

Skylor: Okay, Dad. (Grunting)

Kai: The reason you din't have a tattoo was because you used the power of Form.

Skylor: Ans now I'll use the power of smoke. (Grunts)

Master Chen: (Laughs)

Skylor: Do it, and we'll both go in. No!

Kai: Ninja, go!

Skylor: What are you doing?

Master Chen: (Screaming) Skylor, help me!

Skylor: Dad!

Master Chen: Enough of this.

Kai: (Gasping) (Grunts)

Nya: (Panting) Unh.

Lloyd: Nya!

Nya: They took Jay. They took everyone.

Sensei Garmadon: Slow down, Nya.

Nya: You're the only one left, Lloyd. You're the only one who can stop it.

Lloyd: Stop what?

Sensei Garmadon: A transformation spell. It can't be.

Lloyd: Transformation? Transform into what?

Sensei Garmadon: An army of Anacondrai. The tournament may be over, but the next Serpentine war may have just begun. '

Jay: Don't worry, Lloyd will come for us.

Master Chen: I'm planning on it. (Laughing, Guffawing)
