Scarlett and Dr. Biggles-Jones are inducted into Cobra and drink detoxified Cobra venom to seal the deal. Cobra Commander says there is one more thing each of them must do as a test of good faith. Dr. Biggles-Jones is sent to sabotage a weapons experiment, and Road-Pig and Zarana will supervise her. Scarlett, under the supervision of Slice and Dice, is sent to assassinate General Hawk.
Destro and Baroness are able to escape their dungeon, and they get a signal off to the Joe team.
Dr. Biggles-Jones is successful at sabotaging the Joes weapon test, but Scarlett seems to miss her shot at Hawk. The shot seems to sever the gas line of the jeep Hawk and Stalker are riding in, and it explodes. Ninja Force tries to capture the Cobras, but Snake-Eyes is unable to strike Scarlett, allowing the Cobras to escape.
After Cobra has left, Hawk reveals what has been going on. Scarlett has been inserted into Cobra as a double agent, and the exploding jeep was part of that set up. Hawk and Stalker had been wearing fire-proof suits, allowing them to escape injury. He also reveals that Destro has been feeding the Joes information from inside the castle.
