Plot & SummaryEdit
After the departure of Spacker, Um Bongo, and Jasper, the reunited trio of Xephos, Honeydew and Skylord Lysander get to work searching for Jasper's planes so that they can fly to Skyhold. Unfortunately, Jasper has remodeled the ship, so Lysander quickly gets lost. Much to Honeydew's delight, they end up finding some Jaffa Cakes before Lysander realizes that the cargo of ships might be in the cargo hold. Honeydew ends up finding them, and immediately attempts to fly off whilst still below deck. This somehow causes him to break the laws of physics and transports him through a wall, much to Lysander's confusion.
Back on deck, the heroes repair Honeydew's plane. They each board their own planes, all of which are extremely camp and colourful. They awkwardly turn the planes around and, using Lysander's maps, make their way to the Skyhold. They take and aerial tour, noting that the Carnivale del Banjo is also there. Honeydew and Lysander manage to land there planes on the landing strip, but Xephos crashes just next to it. Luckily, he is able to build his way up to the others.
The trio make their way towards the central platform of the Skyhold, but are stopped by Skylord Vitali, who tells Lysander that he cannot bring strangers into the Skyhold. Skylord Lysander tells him that their is no time, and that he must speak to Skylord Amber. Unfortunately, Vitali reveals that Amber is dead, and that all the other Skylords, except Skylord Baako, are missing. Lysander demands to see Baako (his grandfather), and outside the heroes meet Madame Nubescu. Vitali accuses Nubescu of trying to kill the already ill Baako, but she protests that she has been trying to heal him. Nubescu reveals that Baako is close to the end and that there is little she can do to help. Xephos hands her a Golden Apple, and Nubescu feeds it to Baako, who suddenly regains consciousness. Upon hearing that they are searching for the map fragment, Baako insists that the heroes complete the tests of the skylords, so that they can enter the control room. Lysander fails to understand why they cannot simply be given the map fragment, but Baako insists that he will understand eventually. He then (very graphically) dies, much to Honeydew's shock.
The Opening picture shows Honeydew attacking and killing several creepers during a thunderstorm, with Xephos covering him from behind. This may be a reference to the rainstorm in the previous episode, or the thunderstorm in episode 22.
