Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Dareth, Kai, and Zane are making their way through the desert when they spot a van on the road and wave it down. The driver, Sally, agrees to give them a lift despite their implausible story about camping, and proves to be a songwriter on her way to Ninjago City. When Zane questions her about a photograph of herself and two older people, she breaks down in tears and, after the vehicle is stopped, admits that she took her parents' car and ran away from home because they wouldn't allow her to go to Ninjago City by herself. A Ninjago Police helicopter then arrives on the scene, and Sally comes to believe that the authorities are after her as opposed to her passengers.

Initially too distracted by her own emotions to pay heed to the others' attempts to explain what's really going on, Sally goes so far as to drive off the road after Hounddog McBrag arrives on the scene. Stuck on the edge of a cliff, she finally realizes the truth after McBrag orders the Ninja to surrender. Unfortunately, the cliff edge collapses, dropping the van into a river below; undeterred, McBrag drives his own signature police truck into the river after them. Zane manages to halt his pursuit by freezing the river behind them, but the trip has caused even more damage to Sally's van, leading to another emotional outburst.

Sally expresses envy for Zane's ability to turn off his emotions, but having spent some time with her Zane begins to rethink his decision to go without emotion and encourages Sally to listen to her feelings and return home. Sally does so, dropping her new friends off before going up to her home and knocking on the door. As Zane predicted, her parents are relieved to see her home, and Zane reactivates his emotions after learning from Sally that feelings-even unpleasant ones-have a purpose.

Spoilers end here.
