Flint and Lady Jaye are spying on Cobra in Wolkekuckuckland when the stumble into a Cobra listening post. Cobra Commander, Destro, Dr. Mindbender and Zartan are discussing their plans to take over "W-Land," and Lady Jaye and Flint overhear them.
And Duke's Star Brigade team is returns from on their first mission in space.
Meanwhile in Trans-Carpathia, Billy is being subjected to more sessions of the Brainwave Scanner, which he is resisting better than anyone has seen. Cobra Commander returns to Trans-Carpathia to check on the progress of the Brainwave scanner. Billy tells Cobra Commander that Baroness is planning an escape attempt, which is stopped.
Back in Wolkekuckuckland, Hawk and Stalker watch as General Liederkranz presents a medal to Wolfgang, for saving Wolkekuckuckland. Wolfgang tells his story of great bravery, but Flint and Lady Jaye return, telling the real story that they heard Zartan and Destro discussing. (Wolfgang was trying to steal the fuel for the tanks to sell for himself, but made a wrong turn, inadvertently saving the country. He also wanted to turn General Liederkranz over to Destro.)
As Billy is showing Cobra Commander a secret portion of Destro's castle, he escapes and launches a missile, which is shot down by a Viper. Storm Shadow and Cover Girl are monitoring the situation back at the Pit.
Cobra Commander drags Billy back down to the Brainwave Scanner for more treatments.
Wolfgang tries to weasel out of his punishment by the General, stating he has a full accounting of funds used, and the General seems to believe him. Wolfgang drops his book where the accountings allegedly were, and Stalker finds it's a betting book, and Wolfgang is a bookie on the side.
Storm Shadow travels to the High Sierras to visit Snake-Eyes and Scarlett, but isn't clear on why. After Scarlett leaves the two alone, Storm Shadow informs Snake-Eyes that Billy has been captured, and it is his duty to go save them. Scarlett is upset that Storm Shadow is trying to pull Snake-Eyes back into action, but Storm Shadow says he has just come to say good bye.
Cobra Commander tests a new body armor that can be worn underneath his normal uniform.
