The ninja were at the Temple of Airjitzu where they discussed their next move before the Vermillion attacked them. When the twins landed on the temple, Wu battled Acronix with the Slow-Mo Time Blade which slowed Time on him, however, Krux got the Forward Time Blade and battled Wu and the Ninja. Eventually, Lloyd got the Forward & Slow-Mo Time Blades, but the victory was short-lived as Commander Machia arrived and retrieved both Time Blades from Lloyd's hands, and she and the Hands Of Time escaped with the Time Blades and Wu.
Nya was jealous that someone stole her old armor and wanted to best the new Samurai X. She later returned to the Samurai X Cave where she found the mysterious new samurai.
Nya returned to the Samurai X Cave where she found the new Samurai still lurking. Still angered about the theft of her suit, Nya attacked the warrior and the two engaged in a battle throughout the cave. However, the mysterious figure used a voice scrambler and as their fight continued, it attempted to assume the identity of multiple people including Ronin, Dareth, Misako, and even Garmadon. However, it was only when the new samurai took on Nya's own voice in an attempt to convince her of the importance of keeping its identity a secret. Realizing it was time to pass the mantle onto a worthy successor, Nya yielded. She presented the Samurai VXL to the new warrior, but was then summoned to Chen's Noodle House by Kai.
Upon arriving at the Noodle House however, Nya was horrified to find Skylor present, thereby ruling her out as the possible new samurai. As she took a seat, Kai revealed to Nya that he had found an old Vermillion helmet back at Four Weapons, thereby proving that their parents worked for the Hands of Time.

Their parents proceed to tell them the truth: Krux wanted revenge on them for building the Time Blades and threatened Kai and Nya if they didn't comply which is why they were separated. Hearing this, Nya was horrified as her brother felt guilt for accusing them as he sees they weren't at fault.
As Ray and Maya told them to flee, the Time Twins appeared having overheard a conversation between Ray and Maya and their children Kai and Nya and they quickly revealed themselves after discovering Ray and Maya had hidden the Reversal Time Blade 40 years prior on the orders of Wu. They brought Kai, Nya, their parents, and Wu onto the airship, using this as leverage against Kai and Nya to retrieve the reverse blade, promising if they do, they can save Wu.
As the Iron Doom traveled to the future, Krux complained to Acronix about going to the future. Acronix tells him that by going into the future, there would be no one who recognizes them, no Elemental Masters and no Kai and Nya. At that moment however, The Hands of Time are confronted by Kai, Nya and Wu. Nya joined her brother in taunting the villains for being wrong as the final battle between them begins.

Nya and Kai fell out as Wu gives them the Reversal Time Blade before they returned to the present so that they can cure their father of the time punch. Wu stayed behind confronts a defeated Acronix and Krux, saying that it indeed ends now. As the three fought, the Iron Doom became lost in time with them still aboard as it traveled far into the future.
