"That doesn’t exactly make me unhappy, you know?"
- Lady Jaye (to Flint after he confesses that he was worried about her)
Storm Shadow grabs one of the kids off his back - and against Lady Jaye’s
wishes - tosses one of the kids against a stone wall. She rushes to the
kid while Storm Shadow tosses a grenade, which is handed to him by a Crimson
Guard, declares the Joes’ compassion for weaker beings as their Achilles’
heal, and causes a rock slide composed of enormous boulders to tumble toward
the Joes and the kids.
But Flint and the other Joes arrive and direct their collective firepower
at the boulders and pound the rocks into dust. In the aftermath, Flint
rushes toward Lady Jaye and confesses, “I - I was worried.” Leaning close
to him, she replies, “That doesn’t exactly make me unhappy, you know.”
And the two slip into one another's arms.
Suddenly, Primorts climb down the mountainside and Flint orders the
Joes to be prepared for anything, however, the child nearest to Lady Jaye
walks to the oldest Primort, who is concluded to be the chief. Believing
the son to be the chief’s son, the silver-haired Primort walks toward Lady
Jaye, places his hand on her shoulder and exclaims, “Or-tho!” The two laugh
and the chief then turns to Spirit and touches his shoulder as well. Flint
asks what “Or-tho” means and Lady Jaye’s best guess is that it means “thank
you” since she helped the chief’s son, so that makes them friends. Flint
replies that it is good that they have made some friends since Cobra will
probably return for the satellite.
Storm Shadow returns with several CLAWs and FANGs at night and attempts
to steal the satellite, however, Flint leads the Joes and the Primorts
against Cobra. Dusty pulls the chief of the tribe out of the line of fire
and the chief happily shout the Joes' battlecry. Dusty laughs and tells
the chief that he is getting the right idea.
Spirit bats away a throwing star tossed by Storm Shadow and then breaks
his centuries old sword with a club created by the Primorts.
The Joes and the Primorts successfully defeat Cobra and Flint recovers
the satellite by leaping onto the FANG helicopter flying the satellite
away, climbing up a rope and taking over the controls by punching the Crimson
Guard unconscious, who slices the rope carrying the satellite, which crashes
and shatters upon impact with the ground.
Unfortunately, after Spirit and Storm Shadow's struggle ends, Cobra's
ninja escapes while hanging on the rails of a FANG helicopter.
As the Joes leave, Lady Jaye tells Flint that Headquarters will probably
not be happy with him since the satellite was destroyed. Dusty then chimes
in that all the data is inside the computer chips, so nothing was lost.
Spirit tells his teammates that the Primorts should be upset since the
Joes destroyed their god. “I just hope they like the replacement we gave
them,” Lady Jaye replies. Disbelieving that the Primorts will worship a
television, Spirit comments that the Primorts are creatures of nature and
will know what to do with their new god.
Turning on the television, the chief and the other Primorts watch a
commercial with three singing toothbrushes advertise Happy Fresh Toothpaste.
Disgusted and annoyed (and perhaps scared!), the chief smashes the television
set with a large animal bone and exclaims, “Yo Joe!” Suddenly, the entire
tribe leaps onto their feet and dances around the smoldering remains of
the TV happily chanting the Joes’ battlecry.
