As the Joes/Oktober Guard teams head for Punta Del Mucosa with Darklon's forces in hot pursuit, aid comes in the form of Wild Bill, Hot Seat, and Stretcher to help them escape. The Tucaros decide to stay behind and fight for what's left of their rainforest. Scarlett wonders where's Snake-Eyes, and General Crowther tells her he's on a rescue mission set up by Storm Shadow, as elsewhere Stormy and Stalker are captured by Crowther's men and imprisoned. Snake-Eyes continues his mission in Borovia, unaware he's been targeted by Bludd for assassination.
