In Georgia, Duke, Hawk, Snake Eyes, Scarlett, and Gung Ho get a ride on a Patrol boat from a Vietnam veteran.
Destro arrives to chase after the Joes in a Condor, and informs Zartan that his services and those of the Dreadnoks are no longer required. Destro reports in to Cobra Commander, who is in the Silent Castle in Trans-Carpathia. Cobra Commander has a target practice session on B.A.T.s with paper cutouts of G.I.Joe team members' faces on them.
Back in Georgia, Gung Ho tends to Hawk's wound as Scarlett talks to Snake Eyes. Scarlett dreams of fixing up the cabin, settling down, and having a family.
At the Pentagon, the Jugglers discuss the Joes' situation, unaware that Cobra is still able to listen in on them.
Destro catches up to the Joes, but Hawk calls General Colton who shoots Destro's Condor with the Rapid Pulse Particle Beam. Destro is forced to withdraw, and Cobra Commander orders him to land at Broca Beach for repairs.
Destro attacks the Joes when they arrive in New York, and is able to steal the targeting module for the Rapid Pulse Particle Beam. A news crew videotapes the battle, but Colton confiscates the tapes.
The issue ends with a tribute to the FDNY.
