Thundercats (2011–2012): Season 1, Episode 16 - Trials of Lion-O: Part-2 - full transcript

Pleading for a chance to save his friends, Jaga grants Lion-O life until sunrise to try and save his friends ... and stop Mumm-Ra.

Previously on Thundercats...

Give us the book.

I'd rather die. Unh!


You killed him.

You must complete a series of trials.

Mumm-Ra's temple.

It's even scarier than I thought.

I nearly died in that pit
thanks to Grune.

Sure you want me to help us get in?

Getting out was hard enough.

I don't like it, either, general,

but we have to get
the Sword of Omens back.

There's an air shaft
on the north side.

Dangerous, but it's
your call... King.

We need to take out the guards.

You OK?

I always told him
that I should be king,

but I never wanted it like this.

The only thing we can do now
is finish the job he started.


This is, like, the tenth rock
that you've drawn that on.

If I don't leave him a trail, Lion-O
will never be able to find us.


Lion-O's gone.

Didn't you learn anything
from the elephants?

Death is only the beginning.

As long as Lion-O still has
his soul, he has a chance.

We have a chance.

Not the first time
you've kept someone waiting

in the throne room, your majesty.

Stakes weren't so high when you
were ditching sword lessons as a cub.

Back then I didn't want
to be king, Panthro.

Guess I never thought i'd have to be.

No choice now,

so let's see what you've
picked up along the way.

This is a trial of strength.

All you've got to do is get me out of
this circle before the sand runs out.

But you're 3 times my size!

Yeah, I noticed.

Better hurry, your majesty.
I'm not getting any smaller.




These trials are gonna
kill me... Again.

Tick-tock, little king.

This test is impossible.

No one can get you out of this ring.

If that's what the king says,
then it must be so.

Wait a second.

I am the king.

And you're my subject, general.

I order you
to get out of this circle.

As you wish, my king.

I thought this was gonna be
a test of strength.

It was, and your greatest
strength is as a leader.

Try not to forget it.

Nice work, general.

So far, so good.

My plan just may work after all.


Now what, king?

Just-just let me think.

Don't worry, I've got this.

Way to go, Kit.

Just a false alarm.

Everyone return to your posts.

This looks familiar.

It should. You lost to me
enough times in this arena.

I was a kid then.
I'm stronger now.

True, but strength
had nothing to do with it.

It was always the mental aspect
of the game where I had the edge.

Let's see what you can do now.

Beat me, and you'll get the final key

and your life back.

You're gonna pay for that.

There's that famous temper again.

I see where this is going.

This trial is about
controlling my emotions.

You always loved to make me mad.

Because it was so easy.

Because you wanted what I had.

That's why you had to be
better than me at everything.

It was so everyone could see that the crown
was going to someone who didn't deserve it.


Maybe I thought I
would be a better king,

but I wasn't the only one.

You think father believed it, too?

It wasn't father I
was talking about.

It was you.

And it appears you still believe it.

I'm sorry.

At long last,
the king of the cats is dead,

and the Eye of Thundera
will be mine once again.

And this time, no spell
will keep me from the stone.

For within these walls,
my powers are immeasurable.

I can't see anything.
What's going on?

A thousand bad things, kid.

What do you want to do?

Drop in for a surprise attack.

And land in the middle of trouble?

It's not a perfect plan,

but we owe it to Lion-O to try.

Thundercats... Hooo!

Keep them from the sword!

You were fools to come here.

No more delays.

Take them to the cells.

I'll deal with them
once I destroy the sword.

We bought him some time.

Bought who some time?

There's no one coming to save us.

You were deemed worthy
of another chance, Lion-O.

That chance was given to you,
and you failed.

It can't end this way, Jaga.

My mission, the other cats,
they need me!

Mumm-Ra has taken them prisoner.

He is going to use
the Eye of Thundera

to bring darkness down
upon the entire world.

Why are you telling me this
if I can't do anything about it?

Jaga, please. There must be
a way to send me back.

I'd give anything.

What do you have to give?

You've already lost your life.

Then what about my soul?

Don't be foolish.

Your soul is your most precious gift.

If a king should be willing to
sacrifice his life for his people,

then why not his soul?

The spirit stone can
return you to your body,

but only until sunrise.

If you spend that time wisely,

you may be able to save your friends.

What happens at sunrise?

Your soul will depart
this world and enter limbo,

where it shall remain,

for all eternity.


Are you sure you understand
the consequences

of returning to your earthly body?

Very well.


Up again.

Why is everything always up?

Maybe I'm finally
learning my lessons.

If Mumm-Ra gets the Eye of Thundera,

we won't be able to stop him.

I don't know what to do, Cheetara.

I questioned Lion-O's decisions,

but in the end
they always worked out.

Suddenly I'm charge,
and we end up in here.

Will you all stop worrying?

Lion-O will be here soon, and he'll
find a way to get the sword back.


Lion-O is...

He'll be here, Cheetara.
He'll be here.


He'll be here!

How much longer, Slithe?

They smell so good.

Lord Mumm-Ra has plans for them.

Do you want to tell him
that you ate his playthings?

He's right, you know.
They do smell delicious.

Ah, everything for Mumm-Ra.

Oh, I bet he wouldn't miss
one of the kittens.

- Hello, generals.
- Lion-O?

We-we saw you die.

Then your eyes must be
as bad as your breath.

Brave talk.

But without your sword, you're
no match for any one of us.

So, you want to do this the hard way?


Too bad.
I prefer the easy way.


It can't be.


I told you he would come!

- Yay!
- I knew it! I knew it!

If it wasn't for your markers,
I never would have made it.

It's good to see you again, kid.


How are you...

Long story,
but we don't have much time.

We have to get the sword back.

It's a suicide mission.

You're telling me?

I'd understand if you don't
want to follow me in there.

We'd follow you anywhere...

Your majesty.

Ha ha ha.

General, the doors, please.

With pleasure, my king.

Thundercats... Hooo!

No! They must not break the circle!

you have something of mine.

And without it,
you will never defeat me.

Ancient spirits of evil,

transform this decayed form

into Mumm-Ra the everliving!


You may have the Sword of Omens,

but I still have the Spirit Stone,

and I am king of the Thundercats.


Forget him, Lion-O.
We've gotta get out of here.

OK, Lion-O,

I think it's time you
told us what happened to you.

I'm sorry,

but I have to leave.

Leave? Why?

Because he has paid
the ultimate price.


I guess it's time.

Time to use what you've learned
to lead your people to victory

as the reborn king
of the Thundercats.

I can stay?

How? The trials?

The trials were designed to
test more than just your skill.

They were designed
to test your heart.

When you made the ultimate
sacrifice to save your friends,

you showed what it means
to truly be a king.

What trials?

Yeah, what trials?

- What did he mean by "ultimate sacrifice"?
- What did he talk about?

I guess I'll start
at the beginning...

When I died.
