|Home Episode Summaries Miniseries G.I.Joe: The Revenge of Cobra - In the Cobra's Pit
"In good time, you say? No time in prison is good."
- Cobra Commander (to Destro, who explained to Major Bludd they will eventually rescue Cobra's leader)
The Joes chase the Cobras, but Zartan and the Dreadnoks release
a smokescreen. As a result, the Joes lose Zartan and his crew in the swamp.
After Major Bludd radios Destro that the Joes are over the Pit of Chaos,
Destro creates a lethal lightning storm with fierce winds. Sensing something
might go wrong, Flint orders Scarlett to take her squadron out so that
if something bad does happen, they won't all "buy the farm." And while
Flint, Roadblock, Junkyard and Mutt are caught in the storm, Scarlett and
her squad retreat.
The Cobra's custom transport plane lands and the laser core, Duke and
Snake Eyes are removed from the plane, but as the two Joes try to escape, they are captured again by Cobra agents.
Destro attaches the laser core to his weather dominator and explains
to Major Bludd that when connected to the water vapor control mechanism
of the hydro-master and electro magnetic capabilities of the ionizing correlator
the weather dominator can affect the weather in any part of the world.
As Major Bludd asks Destro about rescuing the Cobra Commander, Destro dismisses
the idea and tells him that they will rescue the commander in good time.
"In good time, you say? No time in prison is good," Cobra Commander remarks as he disembarks from the helicopter.
As Destro learns that Zartan and his Dreadnoks helped the commander
escape, he tells Cobra Commander that the shape-shifter and his mercenaries
have no loyalty to Cobra's cause. But Cobra Commander tosses three bags
of gold coins into the air and two are caught by Zartan while the remaining
bag falls to the ground, causing the coins to scatter. While the Dreadnoks
scramble like kids to grab as many coins as possible, Cobra Commander switches
from his battle helmet to his cowl and occupies all the television and
In the communication room at G.I.Joe headquarters, Sparks tries to find
a signal from the missing Joes, however, he finds Cobra Commander raving
about the Cobra Empire's new weapon, the weather dominator, and a demonstration
of its destructive potential. Upon seeing Cobra's weapon, Clutch gravely
says to the Joes, "He's not fooling around." After Cobra Commander demands
the surrender of the world, Scarlett tells the Joes that they need to do
something. "Yeah, but what?" asks Sparks. "I don't know yet. But I do know
that Duke and Flint would want us to keep punching - no matter what!"
In the Pit of Chaos, Flint calls out for Roadblock, Junkyard and Mutt.
But no one responds. Inside the Cobra Temple, Destro introduces to Zartan
and Cobra Commander his latest genetic creation, a vine with that grows
and strangles everything in sight when given a drop of water. Destro explains
that the entire pit has been seeded with the vines, which should finish
off any Joes who survived the crash.
And while Flint marches through the darkened valley, several vines grab
him by his neck and begin to choke him.
