Full Details

Duke standing in front of Storm Shadow with Major Bludd and Pluto at his side has just had his undercover status blown by Storm Shadow. Major Bludd feeling betrayed wants an explanation from Duke. Duke then explains that he took the mission from the Joes as a way to make contact and join the Cobra organization. A long pause happens.

Later in a coastal city, Major Bludd & Pluto along with Duke get out of a Hummer convoy. As they walk in Major Bludd orders Duke to activate the device which is a Joe transmitter, which Duke throws under a table.

In The Pit, Dataframe (Mainframe) receives the signal Duke's device is transmitting. Dataframe isn't familiar with the signal but Hawk just asks him to call Scarlett.

Later, Scarlett, Rip Cord and Snake Eyes are observing, using thermal imaging, a warehouse that appears to have several bodies in it but they are not moving. She sends Snake Eyes in to discover what is up. After a series of leaps, flips and jumps Snake Eyes finds a skylight that he can see the figures in, he transmits his view to Scarlett. Scarlett & Rip Cord, along with other support soldiers, raid the warehouse. What they find is live bodies but they have been frozen by nanomites. There isn't much that can be done for them but Scarlett calls for a medic anyway. Snake Eyes finds Duke's transmitter.

Scarlett reports in to Hawk, but she can't solve the puzzle of the closed MARS facilities and frozen people by nanomites. Her communication line goes dead, just as Storm Shadow drops down from the ceiling. Scarlett quickly draws her gun but Storm Shadow cuts it in half. She is kicked away as Snake Eyes steps in after a few sword thrusts Storm Shadow grabs Scarlett holding his sword to her throat.

Neo-Vipers arrive in the room and get the drop on Rip Cord, Snake Eyes and the rest of the soldiers are told by Storm Shadow to drop their weapons. They do and then he leads them to an elevator where he tells them he would like to introduce them to someone special. The elevator goes down to an underground sub/train which takes them to a small island off the coast of nearby the warehouse.

As Scarlett, Snake Eyes and Rip Cord exit the sub/train they see Duke standing next to Major Bludd. Major Bludd points out that Duke has been pretending to be anti-GI Joe and hates America. Rip Cord doesn't believe it. Major Bludd then orders Duke to execute Rip Cord. Duke pulls his gun and shoots Rip Cord directly in the chest and says "Hail Cobra".
