"Uh, mine's about six pounds? Can I leave now?"
- Alpine (to Buteo, an Egyptian god who explains that the hearts of the Joes must be weighed)
The Joes don the uniforms of the Crimson Guards and walk back to the
surface and try to convince Cobra Commander that they were attacked by
the Joes but that they captured the Joes’ weapons. Gently rapping her whip
in her hand, the Baroness reminds the Crimson Guard that the penalty for
withholding information is quite severe, and Duke quickly tells Cobra Commander
that they found the treasure.
As the Joes blindly lead Cobra Commander around the tomb and Cobra’s
leader asks how much farther, Lady Jaye subtly hints to Dr. Marsh that
since the hieroglyphics depict the tale of Osiris, they must be near the
treasure. The Joes walk into a corridor and Dr. Marsh purposely activates
a trap that causes the Joes to be separated from Cobra.
But Cobra is at the other end of the hallway and Cobra Commander demands
to know the location of the treasure. Alpine points to a room nearby and
tells a curious Lady Jaye that the treasure has to be somewhere. Cobra
Commander walks into a small chamber and finds the crown of Osiris, lifts
it into the air and shouts gleefully, “It’s mine!” But gas fills the chamber
and everyone falls to the ground choking. The Joes toss their helmets to
the ground and ask Dr. Marsh to lead them to the surface above. As Lady
Jaye pulls her helmet off, she wonders how the Cobra agents breath while
wearing the headgear.
But trapdoors drop from both ends of the room and the floor descends
to a room surrounded by panels of stars and shooting stars above them.
“What the blue blazes -??” asks Duke. A tall golden figure appears behind
the Joes and asks who has entered to court of Osiris and seeks entry into
the Land of the Dead.
As more Egyptian gods appear, they decide that the Joes’ hearts must
be weighed to determine whether or not they are worthy of passing into
the Land of the Dead. After picked up by a flying snake and dropped to
the ground, Duke asks Dr. Marsh if the whole scene is real. As the Joes
and Dr. Marsh fly into space on a golden ankh, the doctor can only believe
that they are really being judged.
Meanwhile, Cobra Commander awakens Set, Egyptian god of evil, and he
asks Cobra Commander who has disturbed him. Set picks up Cobra Commander,
sees the Cobra emblem on the uniform of Cobra Commander and asks the Cobra
agents if he worships the serpent. Cobra Commander screams several times
that he does and as soon as Set places Cobra Commander on the ground, the
Baroness tells Sett that they will crush the followers of his brother’s
army, a thought that pleases Sett.
However, he demands proof of their loyalty, so he turn into a giant
Cobra and tells Cobra Commander, the Baroness, Scarp Iron and the other
Crimson Guards to kneel before him.
