Destro meets Cobra Commander to retrieve the Baroness. Destro also ask for and receives the title to the castle in Trans-Carpathia as reparations for the destruction of Castle Destro. Baroness strikes Cobra Commander before she and Destro leave with two Cobra Battle Copters.
Destro and Baroness fly to the castle and Destro reveals that he designed the castle. He also tells the story of Snake Eyes invading the castle to rescue Scarlett, and that loss is why Cobra Commander hasn't used the castle since then.
The Night Creepers talk with Cobra Commander, who reveals that he knows that they have been looking into his bank accounts. He also states that Baroness has been programmed to brainwash Destro into Cobra's servitude.
Hawk, Flint and Lady Jaye watch from outside the castle, and Destro signals that everything is ok. Lady Jaye sees something at the top of the castle, but is not sure what.
Slice and Dice are atop the castle, and they spot the Joes and something moving along the cliff, where Ninja Force is rappelling down.
A Condor flies over the castle and activates the Baroness' programming. Baroness lures Destro downstairs to the Brainwave Scanner and attacks him. Then, a group of Red Ninjas attack, but Baroness and Destro are able to fight them off. They attempt to escape, but are stopped by Slice and Dice.
More Joes enter Trans-Carpathia to support Destro.
