However, Chen discovered a love letter written by Wu to Misako and he forced Garmadon to revrite it. Sometime later the Serpentine War broke out. Garmadon and Wu both fought in the war, along with the Elemental Masters. But Chen turned the Master of Earth aganist them. Garmadon was the one to discower the key to win the war: The Scared Flutes. The elemental Masters used the flutes to defeat the Serpentine but two Masters called Acronix and Krux betrayed the others. They were too strong even for Wu and Garmadon and Wu ordered Ray and Maya to forge the Time Blades from Chronosteel. Wu and Garmadon used the Blades to absorb the Time Twins' powers, then they threw them into a vortex. The Time Twins went after them.
