Two squads of Joes watch the Silent Castle, as Storm Shadow informs Ninja Force that he sensed a ninja in the castle. Ambush, Rock & Roll, and Roadblock arrive in the Battle Wagon on the other side of the castle.
Destro and Baroness escape from Slice, Dice and the Red Ninjas with the help of a smoke grenade and a secret passage. They make their way to the control center, which alerts them that there are aircraft approaching.
Storm Shadow alerts Hawk that a squad of Vipers is approaching using the Battle Copters. Hawk orders the squads to seek cover, but the brakes give out on the Badger. The Joes struggle to keep it from rolling into the open.
The Vipers split into two squads, one lands on the castle, and the other goes to secure the access road. A Cobra Condor flies overhead and rebroadcasts the signal to activate the Baroness' brainwashing.
Destro tries to prove his loyalty and love to the Baroness by willingly subjecting himself to the Brainwave Scanner.
Outside the castle, the Badger rolls free, alerting Cobra to the Joes presence, and starting a firefight. Destro and Baroness are attacked by Slice, Dice, and the Red Ninjas, who are in turn attacked by the Viper squad inside the castle. Destro and Baroness escape again. Ninja Force forms a human bridge to get from the cliff wall to the castle.
Dusty and Stalker are pinned down in the Brawler, which was incapacitated by the castle's defenses.
Slice and Dice search for Destro and the Baroness, but they are met by Ninja Force. Destro straps himself into the Brainwave Scanner, and tells Baroness to turn it on.
