It premiered on May 5, 2019 alongside "Mama Star".
Marco wakes up inside the lint catcher at Butterfly Castle. As he regains his memories, he makes his way out of the laundry room, finding the usual exit blocked off. After briefly hiding from the magically-augmented crow Sebastian, Marco overhears a conversation between the Magic High Commission and Mina Loveberry, who have apparently joined forces to remove Queen Eclipsa from the throne. As Mina suits up in her now-completed giant suit of armor and wields a large, glowing red sword, Marco sneaks away to find Star.
Meanwhile, Star wakes up in Doop-Doop's shed. After regaining her memories as well, she sees explosions coming from the Monster Temple. On her way there, she notices her parents' village of yurt dwellers has been fortified with a stone wall and alligator moat. Star meets with her mother Moon, who explains that the Monster Temple is under attack. Star urges for them to go help Eclipsa, but Moon's priority is the safety of her fellow villagers. Thus, Star flies off to Eclipsa's aid by herself.
At the Monster Temple, Janna wakes up inside Meteora's room with Meteora and Glossaryck. After finding the temple mostly deserted, she sees a giant armored soldier attacking New Monstertown. Globgor holds the armored soldier off while Eclipsa leads her Mewman and monster subjects to safety inside the temple. When the soldier wounds Globgor with its red energy sword, his size-shifting powers are disabled, allowing the soldier to incapacitate him with ease.
With Globgor unable to fight, Eclipsa attacks the armored soldier with her magic, but her spells have barely any effect, forcing them to retreat inside the castle walls. As the soldier attempts to breach the castle, Eclipsa recognizes the wound it inflicted on Globgor as Solarian magic—magic created by her mother Solaria for the sole purpose of killing monsters. Eclipsa tells Globgor to hide with Meteora while she tries to lead the Solarian warrior away from the castle.
Globgor rests in bed, completely crippled by his magical wound, while Eclipsa attacks the Solarian warrior outside, her magic spells still having almost no effect. When the warrior attacks Eclipsa with its energy sword, Eclipsa protects herself with a barrier, but the warrior's relentless assault threatens to shatter it, ending the episode.
