The issue starts out with the entire Joe team working on the Mobile Command Center in Wyoming, Scarlett approaches LT. Falcon and states that Snake-Eyes is missing, Falcon after asking "Are the two of you connected at the hip?" says basically not worry about Snake-Eyes and asks "How far could he have gotten anyway?"
At the same time off in the High Sierras (assumed, never noted) Storm Shadow cleans up the small cabin that he calls home for the moment. Suddenly there is a stranger at the door, Storm Shadow sends a throwing star at the stranger only to have it caught by the mysterious man, it is then revealed that it is Snake-Eyes. Storm Shadow knows why he is there and they both put on civilian clothes and begin their journey. Outside the cabin Destro and some IGs and keeping watch over the cabin and Destro orders his men to follow the two ninjas and kill them. Along the journey that Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow undertake, they are attacked several times, it is during this time that Dial-Tone gets wind of the attacks as they are being discussed over a Cobra frequency. Scarlett and Lady Jaye are sent by Duke to recover Snake-Eyes and find out what is going on. As the two ladies are driving they hear more reports from the IGs attacking Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow.
Scarlett suddenly, realizing the date, knows where the two are heading. All the moving pieces meet on a lightly wooded grassy knoll that appears to be a cemetery. A firefight begins between the IGs and Scarlett and Lady Jaye, at the sight of this violence going on Storm Shadow goes "native" and eliminates all the IGs quickly. Once the smoke clears and Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow meet up with Scarlett and Lady Jaye, the purpose of the journey becomes clear. It is the anniversary of the death of the Soft Master and the two former pupils are there to pay their respect.
