Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow return Billy's dead body to Cobra Commander and ask him to look into the Blue Ninjas as they plan an assault on them. Sneak Peek visits his mom at a nursing home. Lady Jaye and Flint have a discussion over his actions to save her, while Darklon looks on in disgust. The Joes and members of the defunct Oktober Guard are testing their best tanks in Benzheen for the Emir to buy, and are interrupted as they're given word of an incoming invasion from Trucial Abysmia by surplus H.I.S.S. tanks of various models.
