With Baoddai still weak from losing Palladion, and Lokar and his forces getting stronger, Team Stax and Team Tiro are training harder than ever -- which leaves Mookee feeling left out. And when he goes for a stroll through the woods to try and get out of everyone’s hair, he suddenly finds himself face-to-face with the Hiverax – who tell Mookee that Zane has stolen Palladion from Lokar and plans to use it against Master B! Mookee can’t believe it. He has to tell his friends right away. But The Hiverax tell him he could just go after Zane himself. They even lend him an X-Reader and tell him he’ll be extremely formidable with it. As Mookee heads off and confronts Zane, Zane nearly passes out from laughing at the fact that 1) Mookee thinks he has Palladion and 2) that Mookee thinks he could get it from Zane if he did have it. But Mookee doesn’t believe him and a battle ensues. The Hiverax watch from a distance, happy that their plan to trick Mookee into taking out Zane is working well so far. But as Zane and Mookee square off, Mookee accidentally hits Zane with an attack that freezes him. Unsure of what to do, Mookee decides to take Zane back to the monastery where Master Baoddai will know how to get Palladion back from him. And when he arrives home, everyone is shocked. Especially Baoddai who tells Mookee that Zane does not, in fact, have Palladion. The gang realizes that the Hiverax tried to trick Mookee. In the end, as Zane unfreezes and Zair and Techris show up looking for him, he tries to go after Mookee. But Team Stax, along with Mookee, defeat Team Radikor and run them off. And although everyone appreciates the sentiment of Mookee’s action, he and everyone else knows he is most appreciated for the task of taking care of Master B. In a plot to take out Team Radikor, Team Hiverax tricks Mookee into doing their dirty work for them… with unexpected results!
