When Zane is taking out the trash in the Monastery, he notices the Falcon perched on a tree branch. Upon realizing that the Falcon mimics his movements, Zane decides to follow it into the forest. There, the Falcon leads him to Lloyd's Treehouse Fortress, and Zane decides to alert the others.
The Ninja devise a plan to destroy the Treehouse and rush in, cutting each rope supporting the building except for one. While Cole waits for the Ninja to escape the Treehouse before finishing the job, Skales hypnotizes him, which sends Cole to attack his friends. As Cole is about to cut the last rope while the other Ninja are still on the falling building, Sensei Wu uses the Sacred Flute while riding atop Flame with Nya. Cole is snapped out of his hypnotism, and the Ninja escape on Flame before the Treehouse collapses.
