On the Fera Islands, the survivors of the first G.I. Joe unit, sans Snake-Eyes, consider the dormant Autobots they've found. Right when Roadblock diagnoses them as inoperative, a satellite launches and starts to scan new alternate modes, while the Autobots' self-repair systems initiate. Ironhide awakens and Leatherneck opens fire on him, completely ineffectually.
Away, Storm Shadow assaults Snake-Eyes. Storm Shadow manages to severely scar Snake-Eyes's face, but Stalker shows up to force Storm Shadow to retreat. Rather than return to Scarlett, Snake Eyes chases after Storm Shadow, who attempts to have Cobra troops open fire on Snake-Eyes - but Snake-Eyes approaches them from behind, kills them, and uses their ammunition to stop his facial bleeding, at the cost of burning what's left of his visage.
Back with Duke's party, Optimus makes peace with G.I. Joe.
Nearby, Starscream expresses his desire to lead the Decepticons. Megatron, however, cares little for Starscream's threats, and is more concerned about the safety of his Energon stockpile and how Destro could be a potential threat to Megatron's long-term plans.
Destro reports to Cobra Commander about the recent loss of radio blackout. The Commander agrees to send some reinforcements, including Wild Weasel. He also communicates with Zartan.
At the Joe camp, Wild Weasel attacks the Joes, who are defended by Grimlock. Several Decepticon fliers are dispatched.
Snake-Eyes continues to follow Storm Shadow, moving into a castle. After taking a mask off a suit of armor, Snake-Eyes catches up to Storm Shadow and the merciless Ravage.
