|Home Episode Summaries Season 1 Captives of Cobra: Part II
"We will fight!"
- Spirit's Granfather (to Duke after he is told to find cover while the Joes attempt to protect the civilians from Cobra)
At the ATV, all of the captives but Jesse groan and remove the Cobra
battlesuits and augmentors from the temples on their heads. As the Baroness
shouts at Jesse to smash the crystals, Duke urges Jesse to not do it. Then,
the Baroness yells, "Smash them, you little brat!"
"I am not a brat!" yells Jesse, dropping the rock to the ground. Duke
laughs, helps Jesse down from the ATV and tells him, "You most certainly
Desperate to know what is happening, Scarlett radios Duke and he explains
that everything is "A-okay!" Tears swell in her eyes and all of the Joes
embrace one another in a group hug.
But the Baroness is not defeated and orders the Rattlers to fly out.
As the Rattlers come from 12 o'clock high, Duke orders Dusty to get the
civilians as far from the ATV as possible, however, the O'Haras and Spirit's
grandfather tell the Joes that they will remain and fight.
The Joes climb aboard a Dragonfly and transport helicopters and fly
out to the desert to assist their teammates in the battle. Lady Jaye continues
to request air support from the Joes until a Rattler destroys the communication
console of the ATV.
The Cobra helicarrier arrives and the Baroness orders the Crimson Guard
Commanders to lower the grappler. Scarlett shoots down a Rattler with missiles
from the Dragonfly and Jesse runs away from Vena yelling that he wants
to help. However, a Rattler catches the kid in the open and begins to fire at him.
Scarlett destroys the second of the three Rattlers with a missile. The
Cobra helicarrier floats over the ATV and grabs the vehicle with two grappling
hooks. Awestruck by the immense size of Cobra's helicarrier, Lady Jaye
tells the Joes that they can't stop it. But Duke replies, "We’ve got to!"
And he and the other Joes raise their guns and try to stop Cobra from
stealing the crystals. The grapplers snag the ATV and begin to draw the
vehicle upward. Duke orders the Joes to get as far from the ATV as they
can, and in the sky, the last Cobra Rattler flies behind the Dragonfly
and tries to shoot it out of the sky.
Spirit's grandfather sternly tells Vena and Jesse to leave, then takes
aim at the Rattler high in the sky. And with one shot, he strikes the control
panels inside the Cobra plane's cockpit and forces the pilot to eject from
the fire raging inside the plane. But the plane does not crash to the ground;
instead, it glides in a semi-circle toward the ATV and the wing of the
plane cuts one of the cables.
The Joes run from the scene as quickly as possible, and after Tomax
and Xamot tell the Baroness that the crystals are about to explode she
orders the grapplers to be cut and for the helicarrier to fly away. The
bay doors to the Cobra flying base close and the ATV falls to the ground,
bounces and explodes in a horrific, deadly explosion. Dirt and debris sweep
across the land along violent winds, and in one of the transport helicopters,
Barbecue whispers in a tortured voice: "Dad!"
When the torrent is over, the Joes search for survivors and one by one
they find all of their loved ones. As Gung Ho, Tripwire and Lady Jaye climb
to their feet they wonder about Duke. They find him about forty feet behind
the Joes and as they help him up to his feet, his first question to the
Joes is: "Is everyone okay?" Lady Jaye tells him that everyone made it
and Tripwire explains that Cobra is back to square one. And in the middle
of the Mojave Desert, all of the Joes shout at once: "YO JOE!"
Back at Joe headquarters, Col. Sharpe apologizes to the families of
the Joes and explains that strict measures have been take to ensure that
similar events never happen again. Lady Jaye then apologizes for ruining
the party and explains that the stolen file contained the files of seven
Joes, and only family that was not kidnapped was Gung Ho's. Knowing that
revenge is a trademark of the Baroness, the Joes rush out to save the 137
members of the LaFeyette clan.
Marching through a swamp, the Baroness silences her complaining troops
and orders them to move forward after she finds the house. However, the
troops are capture from behind and the Baroness, her boots covered in mud,
marches into the camp alone and declares that they are all her prisoners
in the name of Cobra. As soon as the Baroness orders her men to take the
clan members, the men who captured the Cobra troops take the gun from her
hands and scare her. She stumbles toward a group of women who point to
her agents tied to a tree and lead the Baroness to a table and offer her
gumbo, but she overturns the table and runs away. One of the men warns
the Baroness to not step on little Shooshoo, the pet alligator.
The Baroness runs into the swamp and the Joes arrive to the clan's home.
Catching sight of the Cobra agents tied to a tree, Scarlett tells Gung
Ho that his family is more than okay. Wondering about the Baroness, one
of Gung Ho's clan members explains that she didn't like gumbo. Suddenly,
Gung Ho's grandmother walks over to him and scolds him for arriving late.
Taking off his cap, Gung Ho hunches over and apologizes, and Duke tells
the Joes that it is quite unlikely that Cobra will mess with this family
