"Baby! Wha'd they do to ya?"
- Gung Ho (talking to his gun, which was mangled during an experiment)
Thanks to Timber pulling a towel and glass of water to the floor, Cover
Girl uses the damp towel to filter the fumes from her nose and mouth. With
the bomb between the gun barrels of the VAMP, she races outside and swerves,
causing the bomb to fly into the sky before it explodes.
Dr. Vandermeer explains to the Joes that there is a remote possibility
that the synthetic flakes created could serve as a subsitute for the last
element to fuel their MASS device. However, the test object, Gung Ho's
gun, which he calls "Baby," is teleported from the floor to Snake Eyes
in a warped condition.
Since the experiment was a failure, Dr. Vandermeer sadly concludes that
the third element is indeed needed to fuel the MASS device, and he adds
that the element can be found in South American volcano, which is part
of an area known as the Ring of Fire. Before the Joes start their mission,
however, Stalker appears on the ultra-secret white transmission frequency
and announces that G.I.Joe forces will be surrendering to Cobra Commander.
At Cobra headquarters, Cobra Commander tells Destro that the Joes don't
know that Cobra is eavesdropping so he believes what he sees, but Destro
remains pessimistic and leaves Cobra Commander to lead resupply mission
for the third element. Depressed that he is not having any fun on his day
of triumph, Ramar is instructed by Cobra Commander to entertain him. Moments
before Ramar can throw a spear at the commander, Ramar's headband is reactivated
and soon he is fighting a robot with a iron morningstar, an iron ball with
spikes and attached to a chain.
Gung Ho decides to play with the models of the Joe vehicles behind Stalker
as Stalker continues to explain the status of the surrender. Fortunately,
Gung Ho was in the scene while Stalker was off the air. Scarlett enters
the room and congratulates Stalker on a part well-played, which sets Stalker
at ease since his only acting experience was playing a pumpkin in a Thanksgiving
play. Scarlett continues to explain that when Breaker discovered Cobra
had hacked into the ultra-secret white band, they decided to use the information
to their advantage by showing a false surrender.
The retrieval job of the third element, code-named Operation: Biglift,
involves three Dragonflies dropping magnets attached to wires onto the
metallic meteorite and lifting the meteor to safety. When one magnet from
the first set snaps, the Joes drop more magnets. With all three Dragonflies
pulling the meteor up, the extraction is successful. Destro, however, leads
the Cobra forces to the meteorite and they shoot the wires causing the
meteorite falls back into the volcano. Destro then orders the planes to
fire at a specific height on the side of the volcano, causing the volcano
to explode and sending the meteorite flying through the air.
