|Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu|
|An Unlikely Ally|
An Unlikely Ally is the one hundred and sixteenth episode of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, and the eighteenth episode of season eleven.
While the other Ninja help to rebuild the Ice Fishers village, Kai basks in the adulation of the villagers following his success in relighting the Hearthfire. Nya, meanwhile, struggles somewhat with her own powers, though Sorla assures her that she has the potential to command ice as well as water. Lloyd then approaches Nya and charges her and the others with protecting the village while he sets out for the Ice Castle to find Zane. His hope is that the other Ninja will draw the Blizzard Samurai's attention away from his rescue mission; unbeknownst to him, General Vex has observed his departure.
Vex speaks to a prisoner in the castle cells, offering him the opportunity to serve the Ice Emperor only to be rejected. Lloyd, meanwhile, travels to the pass of Wojira's Wrath, only to be attacked by wolves. A strange red and white wolf comes to his rescue, and Lloyd bids it a thankful farewell before entering the pass. He is then set upon by samurai, but manages to defeat them by causing an avalanche.
Upon awakening, Lloyd is surprised to find himself free of the pass, having been pulled to safety by the strange wolf from before. The wolf then leads him to the fallen Land Bounty, in which the two take shelter against the biting cold. Lloyd begins to question his decision to seek out Zane alone, and resolves to return to the village. However, a device Nya gave him to locate the missing Titan Mech shows the vehicle nearby, and Lloyd sets out to find it with his new friend in tow.
