In flashback
Vienna many years ago
A pre-teen Billy is running in the streets. His mom screams for him to come in from the streets. Inside the the house several Vipers are waiting for her and him. She enters the room grabs a shotgun and kills two of the Vipers, all right in front of Billy. Then she is shot just as several Crimson Guard Cobra soldiers bust into the room to kill the final Viper. They were to late to rescue Billy's Mom but they pull him out. And in walks Cobra Commander himself. Billy recognizes him by his voice even though he is in helmet. Cobra Commander tells Billy he is safe now and will be sent off to where no one can find him.

As Ronin gets out of the shower Billy is watching her. She encourages him to watch more TV. As she gets dressed to head out to get more supplies before the rainy season. Later, one of the local kids comes rushing up telling him, he needs to help someone. They head to the river where two tourists have been tipped over, Billy ties a rope around himself and dives into to pull them out. On the shore another tourist is filming Billy save the people. It goes up on the internet, and Erika Le Tene using facial recognition discovers the video by the time she sees the video its been up on the internet for a week. She is talking to Snake Eyes but he has already left.

In Thailand
Billy in a hospital bed has a broken arm, broken ribs and a broken leg. The doctor asks him if has broken his leg before. He said he did when he was a kid. The doctor says the x rays shows a pin in his leg. Ronin is standing in the room, he turns to her half joking half serious yelling at her to get him some food. As she gets the food, she sees a guy enter Billy's room with needle. Using that needle, she stabs him in the neck. But another guy grabs Billy.

Five ninjas in white, along with Storm Shadow, bust through the skylight.
