|Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu|
|Pause and Effect|
Pause and Effect is the 72nd episode of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.
Meanwhile, Wu fought some snakes and claimed his strength returned and the effects of the Time Punch have reversed. However, Misako, Garmadon, and Morro emerges from Vermillion Eggs wearing Vermillion armor to tell him he failed them and the Ninja told him he shouldn't have faced Acronix alone. However, this is a hallucination; Wu is tied up in a cell.
Zane treks through the swamp and tells P.I.X.A.L. to scan for Borg. He forgot she's still offline and scans it himself. Meanwhile, Jay and Cole hid behind a rock and went pass the Vermillion. They entered through the skylight and was greeted by Karlof and the Royal Blacksmiths. Karlof explained they took the builders and metal so they could make armor, weapons, and vehicles.
Cyrus told Krux that he completed the apparatus but it won't work without all four Time Blades. Acronix informs his brother the third Blade will be arriving. When Cyrus tries to sabotage it, Machia took him with them.
Lloyd found Wu's cell, but it was empty. He saw Blunck and Raggmunk with Wu and fought them. However, Raggmunk tried to get Wu away from him while Blunck layed defeated.
Since Karlof is too heavy to hold, Cole thought of using the metal to build a ladder instead. The workers started to construct one and Cole asks Lou where the armor design came from. He responded that it came from a blacksmith.
Nya asks for the map, and realized Kai isn't trying to find the twins—he's trying to find their parents. When they reached the blacksmith shop, Kai fought Ray, but Nya tries to stop him.
Lloyd tripped Raggmunk and tries to save Wu before he could fall down a cliff. When Jay checked on the ladder, it collapses, and the Vermillion went toward the sound.
The twins, Machia, and Cyrus wait for the Pause Time Blade atop a mountain. When it landed, it froze them and the Ninja briefly. Acronix tries to get Krux to admit technology is great, but the latter claimed they won't need the BorgWatch to get the Reversal Time Blade.
Cole and Jay defeated the Vermillion, but they saw more coming and ordered the prisoners to escape through the doors. Meanwhile, Raggmunk and Blunck were able to take Wu back.
Maya stopped the fight and Ray explained why they've been helping the twins. They forged four Time Blades from Chronosteel to absorb the twins' power. When the twins were defeated, they both went after the Blades to the vortex. Wu also saw a sign in the future telling him Acronix would return forty years later. When Krux wasn't sent in with Acronix, he took the identity as Dr. Sander Saunders and kidnapped Maya and Ray, threatening to hurt Kai and Nya if they refused.
After the twins returned, Machia scolded Blunck and Raggmunk for losing Wu. At the same time, Lloyd and Zane met up and saw Jay and Cole being outnumbered.
When Ray and Maya told them they hid the Reversal Time Blade in a location only a combined Element of Fire and Water could reach, they tried to get their children to leave before Krux and Acronix could force them to retrieve it, but it was too late. Krux says the only way to undo Wu's Time Punch is with the Reversal Blade.
