As the captured Joes ponder their fate in Trucial Abysmia, Xamot places a call to Cobra Commander, who tells him to get rid of the captured Joes, meaning release them, but he misunderstands the Commander's order and instead has most of them killed by a SAW-Viper. The other surviving captured Joes give payback as Breaker sends an emergency message to the Pit while escaping, which causes Hawk to send 3 Joes to rescue them, but they are sent too late as only 3 Joes are still alive: Duke, Falcon, and Cross Country. To be continued...
