-- Las Vegas, The Genimi
Billy, the deceased former Cobra Commander’s son, is still suffering from the effects of the coma he has just come out of. Lady Jaye and Ronin (formerly known as Chameleon) are interrogating him. His last memory was of Lady Jaye and Ronin was them pulling him out of a burning building and then holding him in dark room as he was shoot by an assassin. Lady Jaye informs him he is in the custody of the US Military. Lady Jaye begins to start when Firewall walks in asking them to step outside. She walks up to Billy telling him that his father killed a lot of her friends and then turns around walks out herself. Billy says he doesn’t know anything about what his father was doing.

Hours later Chameleon (Erika Le Tene) wakes up Billy, she tells him she is a former Cobra and that no one is going to believe that he doesn’t know anything even though she has told them that he was not part of anything Cobra was doing. Watching on a monitor Tomax and Firewall are evaluating what is happening between Chameleon and Billy.

Billy’s former position was brokering multi-million dollar deals in Europe. She opens up to him about her father and how he was mean to her and she didn’t like him. Billy disagrees his father was nice to him but distant. She points out the moment he discovered who his dad was, it was when he gave away 70% of his wealth and started a green energy consulting company in order to make up for what his Dad did. She asks him to tell her what he knows, even if it doesn’t make complete sense to him. He pauses and says “Do you know what a Tiger team is?”

-- Los Alamos, New Mexico
A security guard allows the elevator repairman access to the elevators at 1130PM. Once in the elevator, he contacts Aleph, begins re-routing the elevator camera and takes the elevator to the top floor. A Night Creeper (Gimel) with a sword parachutes onto the roof, enters the elevator shaft and climbs on top of the elevator to ride it down. The elevator door opens and unlucky random person gets shot with a silenced gun and the body pulled into the elevator.

Downstairs in the parking lot, two Night Creepers (Dalet & Hei) are radioed an all clear and they exit the back of truck they have been in.

Gimel has entered and killed several workers where he sets several shaped charges. He rolls a heavy bio hazard container out the window, it falls landing on a padded cushion in the back of the truck with Dalet & Hei driving. Gimel lands on top of the truck and the elevator repair man shoots the security guard and climbs in the truck. They pull out of the parking lot, as cop cars pull in, they release a cable with a balloon that a plane catches and pulls the entire truck up into the sky as the cops watch.

-- Las Vegas
Chameleon tells Flint that Billy is ready for a full debrief team. She turns around moves close to him putting her hand on his chest saying “We a few hours”. Flint hesitates not sure about what they are doing.

Tomax is watching their interaction on a monitor. Next he heads into Clockspring’s office and starts asking for information again reminding him that he knows about Clockspring’s feeling for Chameleon. He tells him to look at Flint’s room monitor. Clockspring kicks Tomax out, but once alone pulls up on the monitor and sees Flint and Chameleon together.

Hours later at a briefing, the team is debating the value of Billy’s intelligence. Billy tells them about the Tiger Team that started blackmailing him after his father was murdered. Putting the pieces together, Flint believes it’s the same organization called the Night Creeper’s that pulled off the robbery in Los Alamos.

They think that the Night Creeper’s are a division of Bezalel International, a company that handles physical and cyber security often by breaking into a company in order to test its defenses, plus they might be ninjas. Chameleon jumps to a conclusion that Flint is going to suggest that they hire them to break into GI Joe’s system. He says “We’re going to have them break into the Pentagon”.
