Micah entrusts Adora with the mission to rescue Glimmer.

While Adora attacked three clones Scorpia stung her unconscious to save her life since they were losing and needed to retreat; then she profusely apologized and said that she'd do it again if needed. Bow, Scorpia, Adora and Swift Wind captured a horde clone while bots attacked their hideout. They abandoned the clone and returned to camp. After holding off the bots they retreated to a magically protected place that Madame Razz had taken Adora previously, the deepest part of the Whispering Woods.
