Cobra takes Mutt, Rock 'n Roll, and Alpine as prisoners in the small town of Delhi Hills. Bazooka is knocked unconscious, so he is tied up and placed in the walk in cooler. One of the Cobras is sent to retrieve Junkyard Junior, but he bit through his leash and is nowhere to be found.
Meanwhile, at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Lady Jaye briefs the team about the situation with Firefly and the B.A.T. She asks that the Joe team file their paperwork quickly so the money trail can be traced back to Firefly and whomever he is working for.
Hawk announces that the new Pit will be in Arizona, and there will be eight other bureaus spread through out the country (Houston, New York and San Diego are mentioned).
Back in Delhi Hills, one of the Cobra agents interrogates Alpine. Alpine was only coming to town to take an accountant job, but this situation proves to him that he needs to be back on the G.I.Joe team. Cobra Commander interrupts the interrogation, and calls in Big Boa.
Bazooka escapes his ropes using a fan from the cooler and then attacks the Viper guarding the door, gaining the upper hand. Bazooka pulls the pin on the Viper's grenades and runs out the door.
Cobra Commander is not happy that Bazooka has escaped, and terminates the leader of the Cobra squad, promoting the next in line.
Outside, Bazooka gets a hold of his rocket launcher out of his jeep, and fires at a group of Vipers. As he reloads, Big Boa attacks him from behind. During the melee, a rocket is launched at the ARBCO semi truck that Cobra Commander was riding in. As Cobra Commander scuttles to safety, Mutt, Rock 'n Roll, and Alpine make their escape. Mutt searches for Junkyard Junior and finds him hiding in the back seat of the car.
Cobra Commander orders a clean up crew to town so no evidence is left behind. Two weeks later, the Joes are investigating and they are unable to find anything linking the town to Cobra. As the Joes are investigating, a new family moves into town, and their son discovers a Cobra shrine in the attic of their new home.
