No Sword of Protection. No She-Ra. No winged unicorn. All this forces Adora to climb the mountain Sky dancer in an effort to reach the Crystal Castle. Now during the She-Ra series we only ever got to see a few angles of the castle, but in "The Stone in the Sword" we are treated to this beautiful panning shot from an angle below the castle. Not only does it show the true size comparison between Adora and the castle, but it also shows the protruding ridge that she must overcome to reach her goal. It is a shame that this shot was never used again in the series.
