Spirit Warriors: episode synopses

Episode 1 – A Warrior is Born

After Bo's mother Fei-Yan is discovered mysteriously injured, Bo and her younger sister Jen are sent on a school trip to attend an exhibition of ancient Chinese warriors. There, along with other children visiting the museum, Trix, Vicky and Martin, they find themselves transported into a mysterious cave where they meet Shen, a Chinese water dragon.

Shen reveals that they are now in the Spirit World and have become the new Spirit Warriors with an important task to complete. They must collect the 12 magical spirit pieces from the spirit worlds of Wood, Water, Earth and Fire. However they'll have some competition – the evil Li, and his henchman Hwang, are also hunting the pieces and if he finds them first, he'll control not only the Spirit World, but also the real world – and Fei-Yan will die.

Will the new Warriors succeed in their first mission and get to grips with their new spirit powers?

Episode 2 – The Spirit Thief

The warriors learn that the next spirit piece can be found in a town called Piaji – unfortunately it's been taken over by the cruel ruler Yama. On their journey the warriors are attacked by Hwang and the ruthless Nian warriors. Once in Piaji they find it deserted and discover that Yama is in fact a Spirit Thief. After Jen is taken by Yama, the rest of the warriors must not only battle the Spirit Thief but also Hwang, who is hot on their trail. Will Bo and the team work out how to defeat Yama, free the town of Piaji and find the second spirit piece?

While hunting for the next spirit piece the warriors head to the Monkey kingdom where they are quickly ambushed by the Monkey people. Jen and Trix are captured, but Jen discovers that they can save themselves by challenging the current Monkey King. By proving that she's funnier than him, Jen wins and becomes their new leader. However her newly found power goes to her head and when Hwang arrives at the monkey palace with a secret weapon Jen learns that being in charge is not all fun and games.

Episode 4 – Your Worst Nightmare

Bo and the warriors move from the realm of wood to that of water in the hunt for the next spirit piece. They soon find it in a ramshackle shop.

However, once at the temple they will each have to confront their own worst nightmares.

Episode 5 – The Snake Spirit

While chasing the next spirit piece the warriors are attacked by what appears to be a giant snake and Bo is bitten. Worse still, Hwang and the Nian choose this moment to pounce and the team are separated. Luckily Trix and Martin manage to get Bo to the safety of the house of mother and daughter, Weici and Jiao. Jen and Vicky also escape, only to find themselves in a vast graveyard where they meet the mysterious Fung. In order to secure the next spirit piece they must uncover the identity of Fung and discover what is, or who is, the snake spirit.

Episode 6 – Fortune Favours The Brave

As the quest continues, the warriors visit fortune teller Master Wu who predicts that they will shortly encounter ghost dogs, their dreams will come true and that they will have to enter the Labyrinth Of Lost Spirits. Bo's doubts are soon proved wrong when the predictions come true. While Jen and Vicky's dreams materialise before their eyes, Martin, Trix and Bo apparently enter the Labyrinth Of Lost Spirits. But all is not as it seems and they must work out where they really are in order to get the piece and find their lost friends.
