When the coating proves to be bulletproof and, as they are facing down an army of bloodsuckers, Dane decides to crack the rest of the tubes and turn his whole team golden. The team defeats the vampires but Craven double-crosses them, sending in gunships to wipe them out. Mother One betrays I.O. to save the team and joins.
