Role in the series
Dismal Cave first appeared in the series finale, "Captain Hook's Last Stand!" When Captain Hook turns Peter Pan to stone with the power of the Doom Stone, Captain Jake and his crew get help from Wendy, John and Michael to find the magic items needed to rescue their petrified friend. Wendy and Jake head to Dismal Cave to recover the Sun Stones that will help restore Peter back to normal. But unknown to Wendy and Jake, they were being spied on by Mr. Smee in hopes of learning where they hid the now petrified Peter Pan for Hook. Captain Hook soon arrives growing eviler and gradually turning to stone with every use of the Doom Stone. He asks Smee if he has learned any new information on Pan's location. Smee informs him that Jake and Wendy went inside Dismal Cave to find the Sun Stones. Seeing this as a chance to learn of Pan's whereabouts, Hook bellows into the cave ordering Wendy and Jake to reveal Pan's location. But Jake and Wendy refuse to respond. Hook grows tired of the young heroes and causes a cave-in by kicking his now stone foot against Dismal Cave. Believing he had now rid himself of Jake and Wendy, Hook soon set off to continue his search for Pan, unaware that his actions caused more good than harm revealing the Sun Stones and another means for Jake and Wendy to exit Dismal Cave.
