Full Details

At the GI Joe base, Roadblock is talking on the phone about going to China near Inner Mongolia where the Dreadnoks are reported to be working. The person on the other side of the call, seen in shadow, tells Roadblock that his loyalties are to protect this great nation, America first.

Athens, Greece, Gung-Ho and Lady Jaye undercover as ex-pats are at a anti-government rally, when the speaker reveals the Cobra symbol the crowd cheers, Lady Jaye says they got to call it in.

In Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, Roadblock, Doc (Carla Greer), Cover Girl, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Quick Kick are breaking the curfew the Dreadnoks have put in place to meet with their local contacts. Quick Kick brags about being the best martial arts in the world. Ying and her brother Yong show up to meet them.

At the GI Joe base, Grand Slam, in a wheel chair, is scanning Doc (Carl Greer) to test a scanner for detecting Dire Wraiths. Sitting in the room is a Transformer ally Skywarp. Skywarp’s teleporting abilities have been damaged and he suggests they give the Dire Wraith scanner a break and work on him. Scarlett is getting the report from Lady Jaye and Gung-Ho about the Cobra activity. Dial Tone arrives with some food to give a briefing, Scarlett needs a break. She takes the food to a cell that contains the Baroness. Scarlett gives her the food, she refuses it not liking Shipwreck’s cooking. She wants to know if the Baroness knows if Cobra is reforming. Baroness refuses to give out any information.

The Joe team in Mongolia arrive at the destination their guides have shown them. It’s a huge home with two massive orge looking statues outside holding motorcycles. They walk in the front door, the doors slam behind them and Crystal Ball, with the Dreadnoks Buzzer, Road Pig, Zanzibar, Ripper, Burn Out and Clyde “Gnaw” Hyde attack. Roadblock dodges Road Pigs hammer, both Cover Girl and Rock ‘n’ Roll’s guns aim is off causing them to miss. Clyde “Gnaw” Hyde flattens Rock ‘n’ Roll. Quick Kick steps up takes a drink and starts dodging Clyde’s punches. Ripper fires a gun that sends out blades at the recovering Rock ‘n’ Roll, Doc jumps in front of him with an energy shield that deflects the flying blades. Buzzer comes rushing in with his chainsaw, Rock ‘n’ Roll misses again. Roadblock wins a strength battle with Road Pig hitting hi with his own hammer and Quick Kick knocks out Clyde and seems drunk, when in rushes a group of citizens with red eyes chanting “We must destroy GI Joe”. They are commanded by Crystal Ball. The Joe team is surrounded. Watching the fight is Zarana and Zandar.
