Evil-Lyn Removes Helmet

The curse of the assigned lab partners strikes again! In this Dini-penned episode, He-Man and Pals arrive to help Malek – Teela’s formerly obsessive suitor – in his effort to defend the Fountain of Life from Kothos, an evil wizard in the desert city of Aridan. But, during a scuffle, Teela and Evil-Lyn are transported to the wastes where they must work together to find civilization and stop rejoin the fight against Kothos. On the adventure, we’ll grade the team on their cooperation skills, we’ll meet a lobster-man named Clawful, and we’ll hold court for a goodly while as we discuss our first look at Evil-Lyn’s hair-do!

Then, we enter Lightning Round #5! We’ve got singing Trollans, a video game story and a reason for Duncan to venerate more birds. These were actually pretty great.
