Full Details

Heavy Duty is helping seal off the destroyed Golden Gate Bridge just as a second explosion blows another hole in the bridge right near him. On the other end of the explosion is Major Bludd, secured in Alcatraz Island with a computer expert named Pluto who is controlling these explosions by remote. Duke is standing by as a Cobra operative watching all of the destruction.

At The Pit, Dataframe (Mainframe) is furiously fighting a virus that has taken control of GI Joe's main computer. Pluto is responsible for this action, also. Hawk orders Dataframe to fix it but he can't.

On Alcaltraz Island, Scarlett and Rip Cord are in two of the cells guarded closely by Neo Vipers. Using small explosives taken from her boot heal, she blows the lock then escapes to kill three Neo Viper guards and releases Rip Cord. They then go release an unconscious but very much alive Snake Eyes. After reviving him, Snake Eyes hands Scarlett a data disk. She runs for a radio to contact Hawk & Dataframe about the disk. It seems Duke slipped to Snake Eyes the disk as they were fighting. It is possible that Duke is pulling a double cross on Major Bludd.

After Dataframe analyzes the information he realizes that it is the secret to defeating the Cobra virus. So he turns the table on Pluto, and reverses the virus, hitting his computer with it as it is cleaned off of the Joe computer.

Scarlett, Snake Eyes & Rip Cord rush towards Major Bludd, Hawk then orders Duke to capture Major Bludd, which he tries to do but has to fight several Neo Vipers as well as Bludd. Bludd defeats Duke and then orders Pluto to detonate all of the different bombs that have been placed all over the world. But when he goes to do that Dataframe has blocked those codes from being sent out. Bludd furious turns to execute Duke, but Snake Eyes uses a throwing star to knock the gun out of Bludd's hand. He is then captured by the Joe team.

Later at the White House, the President of the US is screaming at Hawk for allowing the diaster at the Golden Gate Bridge to happen. Hawk defends the Joe team and Duke's actions of not preventing the destruction by saying that the Joe's was able to discover the much bigger plan, which includes lots of more bombs in famous places, and literally save the world by leaving Duke there. The President isn't happy and vows to pull all US support from GI Joe's international operation. Hawk is then dismissed.
