On the Cobra controlled Hawaiian island of Kauai, Snake-Eyes has met up with Beach Head. They are getting into position to use laser target designator for some of the Predator drones that are to be used to bomb the island. Plus, they capture a humvee.
Scarlett, Stalker, Roadblock, Airtight, Shipwreck, and Flint have all been accepted into the Cobra training program as new recruits. And they just arrived on the island. Scarlett puts a Cobra drill sergeant in is place by knocking him out.
As all of this is happening, the US Army is planning on dropping a nuclear bomb on the island to prevent Cobra from launching any of its captured missiles.
Hawk and Mainframe, at The Pit, are informed by the Army that the 48 hours the Joe team had has just been shortened to 12 hours. They send out a message to the team, informing them of the time schedule change.
Meanwhile, Road Pig, who has developed a hatred of Duke, places a frag in his footlocker.
Duke is doing PT for the Baroness. She is trying to discover if his loyalties to Cobra are still true. At one point Duke upends the Baroness, and pins her to the ground. Her own loyalty is questioned, and she refuses to allow Duke to be killed by guards that she could call. Destro has been watching all of this from a security camera television screen.
Scarletts team gets the news that the time schedule has been pushed up. Airtight uses ver-sed (soporiphic and amnesiac) to knock out some of the other recruits. They decide on a plan, and split up to accomplish it faster.
Duke returns from the PT sessions with Baroness, and as he is about to open his fragged footlocker, some goons that Destro sent after Duke to investigate him, open the footlocker first. They are killed, and Duke attacks Road Pig.
This explosion gives the Joe team a diversion to escape and begin there infiltration.
