The gang investigate the so called Mystery Zone where many ships were wrecked on its island. They learn the evil witch Circe is responsible as she needs a young sorceress to overcome a curse in which she will turn to stone if she leaves the island in her own body. When Ariel arrives with Thundarr and Ookla, Circe gets her opportunity as she switches bodies with Ariel and becomes a threat to the others as she tries to leave the island inside Ariel's body.

Quotes Edit

Thundarr: Circe!

Ariel via Circe: Not Circe you pig-headed, stubborn savage, Ariel!

Thundarr: Your sharp tongue is Ariel's. That much is certain.

Circe: The island. I've left the island. The curse! The curse! THE CURSE!!!

Her entire body turns to stone. Ookla walks up and taps on her petrified hand.

Thundarr: Turned to stone! As hard and cold as her cruel heart.

Thundarr: (About Circe) She paid a terrible price to live forever.
