Panthro finally joins the team, but his gruff demeanor intimidates Lion-O. Despite his best efforts, Panthro can't dissuade the Cats from following him on a mission to get Thundrillium to fuel the Thundertank.
Sent by the Elephants to the Forest of Magi Oar, Lion-O must learn to master Sight Beyond Sight before returning to the Elephant Village. The Cats encounter a group of paper warriors with a dark secret.
The Cats are ready to retrieve the stone from the "Astral Plane" in the Elephant Village, but find it overtaken by Grunea and Mumm-Ra's forces. Plus, Tygra and Cheetara's early relationship to one another is revealed.
As Lion-O and Pumyra try to evade Mumm-Ra and his forces in the mines of Mount Plundarr in an effort to keep the Sword of Plundarr out his hands, we flash back in time and discover its origin ... and its relationship with the Sword of Omens.
