Official Synopsis

With General Morando searching for Gaylen's Core, Aja and Krel must travel into their parents' subconscious to learn the core's location first.


With General Morando determined to learn the location of Gaylen's core, Aja and Krel must hurry into their parents' memories and find the core before Morando. Meanwhile, Vex, Steve, Eli, Toby, AAARRRGGHH!!!, Momblank, and Dadblank must escape Kubritz's captivity and venture back to Arcadia to save the Tarrons.




  • Mother sacrifices herself to reinitialize the stasis chamber so King Fialkov and Queen Coranda can continue healing.
  • It is revealed that Fialkov and Coranda had entrusted Kanjigar the Courageous to look after Gaylen's core hundreds of years ago.
    • They have also preprogrammed the Mothership to travel specifically to Earth in the event of an emergency, just in case their legacy ever needs to reclaim it, which Mother herself seems to admit.
    • It is also revealed that Akiridions can live up to hundreds (or even thousands) of years without aging a day, much like Trolls.
    • It's implied that the Akiridions and Trolls have been connected through an ancient prophecy all along.
  • When Aja reads off from the kissing tree hundreds of years ago, the only initials on it is "RB+CH". This could be a possible allusion to the executive producer of the franchise "Rodrigo Blaas" and the director "Chad Hammes". 
  • When thinking of ways to reinitialize the stasis chamber, Aja suggests unplugging the pods and plugging them back in, which is a nod to the common phrase "Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in again?" Krel lampshades this by saying that such a solution is not applicable to every technical issue. 
  • When Kanjigar says "For the glory of Merlin, Daylight is mine to command", Aja finds it familiar. It could possibly be a residue memory from "D'aja Vu" since it was the only time she's ever heard Jim say the incantation.
