Plot Summary

Matoro announces that something must be done about Mata Nui's recent death, that all is not over. Jaller tells Matoro to go on ahead, while the others buy him time fighting the Barraki and their armies. Matoro accepts, and vows his friends' sacrifice will not be in vain. He sees that Voya Nui is falling into a hole in the ocean floor, and swims as fast as possible to make it in before Voya Nui seals the hole.

Meanwhile, Hydraxon comes across Spinax and the body of Maxilos, irreparably damaged by what seemed to be a battle with the Barraki. There is no sign of Teridax's essence within the body.

Elsewhere, the Toa Mahri are distracting the Barraki from what Matoro is doing by engaging in a battle with them. Jaller summons the energy for a Nova Blast in an attempt to save Matoro.

Matoro barely outswims the island, arriving at Karda Nui, where a mysterious voice instructs him to put on the Ignika. He does so, and his body is turned into raw energy which is used to bring Mata Nui back to life, but killing Matoro in the process.

As part of Matoro's dying wish, the rest of the Toa Mahri are all transported home, to Metru Nui. Matoran everywhere rejoice at the revival of the Great Spirit. After Jaller pushes down the energy he summoned for a Nova Blast, Turaga Vakama greets the Toa and reveals to them that Matoro has died.
