Hawk regains consciousness in Borovia, and leads Lady Jaye, Magda, and the White Clown in an assault against the security police. He leads them to a soccer field, where he knows about a secret. The group begins digging as the security police approach in a tank.
The rest of the Joes arrive in time to stop the tank, but Hawk has found what he's looking for. A stash of gold bullion was buried below the soccer field and Hawk knew about it through satellite surveillance. The Joes bribe the security guards to leave. Hawk is taken away by a Tomahawk to be treated for his wound, and Magda promises the Joes immunity and safe passage out of Borovia.
Firefly arrives on Cobra Island to meet with Cobra Commander. Scans of Firefly's 747 show no life forms aboard besides Firefly's.
Firefly attempts to trade the location of the Pit to Cobra Commander for two and a half million dollars, but once Cobra Commander has the information, he has Firefly locked back into the freighter.
As Cobra Commander leaves the island to attack the Pit, Firefly's brainwashed ninjas come out of the Sleeping Phoenix trance aboard the 747. They are under orders to rescue Firefly from the freighter.
Above the Pit in Utah, Spirit senses something is coming.
