"Joe team - this is Flint! Our work's not done yet!"
- Flint (after escaping the bomb on Cobra Commander's island)
Outside the base, Zap attaches four six-packs of dynamite and tells
Gung Ho that if this solution doesn't work, then he is going back to selling
insurance. The explosives detonate and the door is so warped by the explosion
that it tumbles to the ground. Zap, Gung Ho, Rock 'n' Roll, Snake Eyes,
Scarlett and several other Joes enter the base yelling, "YO JOE!"
Flint tells Cobra Commander to surrender, however, Cobra's leader laughs
and decides to fire a couple of missiles at Flint when the three remaining
robots enter the arena. Flint turns as he hears the missiles, dives to
the ground and watches the robots blow up. Turning back to Cobra Commander,
Flint tells him, "Nice shooting, Commander." Cobra Commander screams in
anger and tells him that in moments there will be nothing left of the Joes
but sub-atomic particles.
As Zartan walks to the exit in the control booth, he explains to the
Baroness that victory has always been near, but the Baroness argues that
they have wasted too much time. Cobra Commander yells at them to be silent
as they stand to the side to let him pass. Then, as Zartan and the Baroness
leave the room, they bump into one another's shoulder as they squeeze through
Flint cuts a light tower down with his gun and after the tower crashes
through the glass window of the booth, he climbs up and enters the room.
Meanwhile, the Cobra agents depart the island in a Firebat. Flint hears
Lady Jaye on the intercom system and tells her about the bomb and that
he can't disarm it. She asks if there's a scrub switch and he explains
that there's only one unmarked switch on the control panel. Lady Jaye urges
him to flip it, and he does. The counter is reset and Flint tells the Joes
that they have three minutes to evacuate the island.
As Flint begins to sprint to the outdoors, he finds Dusty, throws him
over his shoulder and contiues his escape. Lady Jaye, Alpine and Airtight
find Bazooka in the roller coaster, wake him up and begin to roll down
the track after Lady Jaye destroys the wheel blocks.
Lady Jaye: "I don't know where we are going -"
Airtight: "- but anywhere's an improvement!"
Tossing a spear with an explosive head at a wall, Lady Jaye creates
an opening in the stone wall for the runaway roller coaster cart and leads
the Joes to the Skystrikers. Flint bolts from the control booth, places
Dusty on his shoulder and carries him to the last Skystriker. Gung Ho looks
down onto the island and tells himself that will never make it.
Then the island explodes.
A terrible white flash fills the sky and a blood red mushroom blooms
from the ocean. Thunder cracks in the air and lightning rips across the
skies as the ocean waters churn violently.
In a panicked voice, Lady Jaye whispers, "Flint - no!"
But a lone Skystriker streaks out from the mushroom cloud and the Joes then hear over the radio: "Joe team - this is Flint! Our work's not done yet!" Flying from
the ruined island, all of the Joes yell at once - "YO JOE!"
Believing the Joes have been killed and will rule the world since he has the world's smartest scientists at his disposal, Cobra Commander happily watches the explosion
on several monitors in his base. Zartan explains that he never doubted
his plan for a minute unlike the Baroness. Just as she is about to start
her own acidic retort, the base is attacked and Cobra Commander gasps and
exclaims, "This can't be!"
Led by Flint, the Joes attack the base with Skystrikers,
Wolverines, Silver Mirage Motorcycles and Maulers, each cutting through Cobra's
ground forces, which are composed of HISS tanks and Ferrets.
The Baroness suggests a swift departure while their necks are still
intact and Cobra Commander tells her that since her idea sounds sensible
he orders Zartan to prepare the Rattlers for departure. But Zartan leaves
the room yelling, "Ready your own!"
Wild Bill decides that it's time to clean up so he destroys the front
door to Cobra's base and the Joe ground forces pour into the base.
Alpine, who is flanked by Bazooka, Breaker and several Joe grunts, tells
the Cobras that they had better drop their
guns unless they want to turn into snake sandwiches. Watching the surrender
scene on the monitor inside his Rattler, Cobra Commander states that he
will have revenge, then flees the base.
Flint explains to a curious scientist that he thought Cobra Commander
would leave his island base so he had Wild Bill keep a look out for Cobra
Commander and when he flew the coop, Wild Bill radioed the coordinates
of Cobra's newest hideout. Alpine then mumbles to Bazooka, "Flint sure
does like to talk a lot, doesn't he?" Flint strolls over to Alpine and
asks him what he said. Raising his hands in a defensive gesture, Alpine
stutters out a response that begins to sounds complimentary, but Lady Jaye
interrupts and asks if anyone would like to escort her down a moonlit beach.
Bazooka quickly and enthusiastically replies, "Sure!" However, Alpine jabs
his friend in the ribs, asks Lady Jaye to ignore his friend and offers
to join her. "You do and you'll be scrubbing bathrooms for a week," says
Part One - Part Two - Part Three
"You sure know how to keep a girl single," she tells him.
"That's right," Flint replies, "She sees right through me." And Flint's
thought amuses everyone.
