Plot

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

In Ninjago City, Zane-much to P.I.X.A.L.'s chagrin-has adopted a fictional detective persona in his quest to locate Milton Dyer. The pair head to Dareth's juice bar in search of a childhood friend of Dyer's, but Zane's bizarre mannerisms-such as narrating his thoughts aloud-soon earn the ire of the patrons. One, the brother of Fugi-Dove, soon leads the others in attacking the two robots, but fortunately P.I.X.A.L. proves able to defeat their adversaries despite Zane advertising his moves to his opponent. They then find Dyer's old friend, Tony, who points them in the direction of Dyer's old hangout, Freddy's Pizza.

The two head to the old restaurant/arcade, only to be ambushed by the Mechanic and his his gang. Zane is abducted, and P.I.X.A.L. is knocked offline, waking to find both her boyfriend and the criminals gone. Reluctantly, P.I.X.A.L. dons Zane's discarded fedora and adopts his detective mannerisms. Unexpectedly, her utterance of Dyer's old nickname for the pizza place opens a hidden doorway, leading her to the rooftop. There she finds Dyer, only to learn that Unagami is not his alter ego, but the controlling Prime Empire itself...

Spoilers end here.

Trivia

  • One of the Beavers from Legends of Chima, previously seen in The Kaiju Protocol, appears briefly at the beginning of the episode.
  • Zane and P.I.X.A.L.'s "detective personas" in this episode are an obvious tribute to the noir genre that first became popular in the 1940s.
