A Cobra courier is detained by some greenshirts after making a drop off at an airport locker. A disguised Zarana picks up the briefcase from the locker as Flint and Stalker spy on her. Zarana notices them, and escapes using a trolley car to get to Tomax and Xamot, who are driving the get away car. Stalker pursues in the Brawler, but a helicopter picks up the car.
Zartan finds out that the nano-machines have cured his skin condition, and Zanya is upset that she owes Alexander a favor now.
Mainframe informs Hawk that one of the Jugglers, General Winters, has been in contact with Congressman Cartwright, who is in turn in contact with Teletran Marketing, formerly known as Arbco Tele-Sales, Cobra Commander's dummy corporation. Mainframe also finds a picture of Destro and General Winters shaking hands.
Cobra Commander checks in on Zarana to make sure the briefcase is in her possession, as Zartan and Zanya arrive. Agent Beuke is undercover at the Chicago Dreadnok compound, and informs Mainframe that something big is about to happen.
Duke informs the Joes of the situation, and refers to Agent Beuke as the new Sneak-Peek. Firewall and Daemon are having a tough time with Beach Head's training, but William is having no problem with it.
An Arbco truck arrives at the Dreadnok compound, and Scrap Iron oversees the unloading of the cargo, while Sneak-Peek looks on. Dr. Mindbender arrives to install the component from the briefcase into the cargo, but the B.A.T. that was delivered has gone on a rampage, and attacks Dr. Mindbender.
