Firefly has brainwashed all the ninjas except for Snake Eyes. Firefly realizes that Snake Eyes' consciousness has been reconfigured by the Arashikage mind-set. Firefly is forced to improvise on the brainwashing, but is seemingly successful.
Lady Jaye and Hawk are in Borovia attempting to get out. A riot starts, and Hawk is shot in the chest. Lady Jaye attempts to save him, but is knocked out.
Cobra Commander reviews strategy with Zarana, Cesspool, and Road Pig. Cobra Commander wants to take over Borovia and Trans-Carpathia, but a retired Destro stands in his way. Cesspool and Road Pig want to destroy the Joes headquarters, The PIT, but Cobra Commander does not know where it is at.
The rest of the Joes in Borovia (Ambush, Roadblock, Big Ben, Rock & Roll and Dusty) spot Lady Jaye and Hawk being held prisoner on a TV broadcast, and plan to rescue them.
Storm Shadow attempts to break free of the brainwashing, but Firefly is able to stop him, and straps him back into the Brainwave Scanner. While doing this, Firefly discovers the location to the Pit. Firefly contacts Cobra Commander to arrange a meeting on Cobra Island.
Lady Jaye is able to free herself and Hawk, and meets Magda and the White Clown. The rest of the Joes in Borovia are able to gain access to the city using the Brawler.
