Full Details

Rom, Livia, and Orphion are cloaked. They observe the aftermath of the Cooper’s Mill attack. Camilla is being loaded into an ambulance. Rom, Orphion, and Livia fly away to find a place to talk. Rom is worried that the Wraith have bigger plans for Earth and they must be stopped but not destroyed as Orphion demands.Beach Head and Grunt, using stolen jetpack technology from the GI Joe armory, find Rom, Livia and Orphion.

Orphion is showing Rom the extent of the Wraith infestation goes very deep, Earth is infested to the core. The Wraiths are on every land mass and in every corridor of power. Orphion says their diplomats will deal with the Cybertronians but Earth must be destroyed. Just then Orphion is blasted by hi tech weaponry as Grunt and Beach Head attack. Rom checks to see if they are human so Livia will not destroy them. The Joes think the weapon is a dud as they are of course unharmed by the analyzer. Rom does not understand why the humans are attacking him as he is trying to save them but he must defend himself and if they are to be enemies then so be it. Rom rips the jet pack off Beach Head and tosses him to the edge of a cliff.

Meanwhile the Dire Wraith, who took over Countdown, has found out from Corporal Song that Rom has connected to the internet to learn about Earth. This connection may be traced and Song may even be able to control Rom.
