|Home Episode Summaries Season 1 The Traitor: Part II
"I think he means it!"
- Flint (who hears Cobra Commander yelling at his troops to kill the Joes)
In front of a door that says "Gas Laboratory No Admittance," Dusty looks
over his shoulder and then enters the lab, however, Lt. Claymoore, who
is sweeping in the hallway, pulls out a radio and contacts the Crimson
Guard Commanders stating that their opportunity to prove that Dusty is
a traitor may be at hand. As Dusty is reading the instruments in the lab,
Tomax and Xamot enter the room and attack Dusty, but just as he is about
to defeat them Tomax tosses a barrel into Dusty's stomach and the ex-Joe
collapses to the ground.
Dusty is dragged into Cobra Commander's room and Cobra Commander demands
to know what is going on. Tomax and Xamot explain that they caught Dusty
in the lab, but a smiling Dusty listen to Cobra Commander shout at the
twins: "Fools!" Cobra's leader explains that he ordered Dusty to prepare
the gas and would not betray Cobra because the convicted felon doesn't
have anywhere else to go. Placing his hands on Dusty's shoulders, Cobra
Commander explains that Dusty will prove his loyalty tomorrow by gassing
the Joes personally.
Cobra Commander addresses the "warriors of Cobra" by explaining that
the world now belongs to Cobra, and his troops raise their hands and shout
three times: "Cobraaa!" The Joes are led into the arena and Dusty seals the arena off from the
Cobra spectators, closes the temple vents over the Cobra agents and opens
the arena vents as per Cobra Commander's orders. But when Cobra Commander
orders the gas to be pumped into the Joes tank and leans over to watch
the results, Dusty opens the vents above the Cobra agents, closes the arena
vents and pumps the gas into Cobra Temple.
Cobra Commander declares Dusty a traitor and attacks him, but Dusty
throws him into the approaching Tomax and Xamot, opens the glass cover
over the arena and tells the Joes that there are weapons in the ready room.
Cobra Commander yells that Dusty was a triple-agent and simply says, "You
guessed it, chromedome!"
With pistols drawn, Tomax and Xamot walk toward Dusty and tell him to
"have a nice death," but the Joes climb into the control perch and slug
it out with the Cobra agents. As Lady Jaye kicks Cobra Commander to the
side and Shipwreck swats Cobra agents with a pole, Cobra Commander flees
from Flint and Lady Jaye until he runs into some of his agents and then
orders them to destroy the Joes, and Flint and Lady Jaye quickly retreat.
Literally and figuratively with his back against a wall, Flint listens
to Dusty's offer for help and wonders if he should trust the ex-Joe. Dusty
pleads with Flint and asks how he can afford not to trust him. Lady Jaye
tells Flint that Dusty has a point and the Joes retreat to the lab. Shipwreck
closes the lab doors and watches as lasers slice through the door just
inches over his head.
Flint asks Dusty what he is doing while tapping a control panel and
Dusty explains that everything was part of Duke's plan. "Duke's what?!"
asks a surprised Lady Jaye. Suddenly, the door to the lab is knocked down
and a Cobra HISS rolls into the lab. Dusty grabs a barrel and throws it
against several glass containers. Fumes float out of the lab and flood
the temple, and as soon as the fumes touch the Cobra tanks and uniforms,
they fall to pieces. Dusty explains that Duke knew the mind control gas
could be used to neutralize the unstable armor treatment formula and could
cause the armor protection chemical to corrode anything it touches when
mixed with the mind control gas.
After Flint knocks three Cobras against a wall and Lady Jaye accidentally
rips a pair of boxers off an agent while tackling him to the ground, Cobra
Commander watches Tomax and Xamot tell him to call the corporate office
sometime for a lunch appointment. Saluting and simultaneously saying "Ciao,"
the Crimson Guard Commanders fly away in Trubble Bubbles and leave Cobra
Commander at the mercy of the Joes. Cobra Commander turns and hisses at
the Joes as they find him, but before the Joes can nab Cobra's leader,
the Joes are fired upon and are forced to scatter. A Cobra FANG enters
the flight bay, Cobra Commander grabs a rung on the helicopter and the
FANG then flies out of the bay. Cobra Commander then looks up at the pilot,
sees Lt. Claymoore and tells him that it is nice to know who his friends
are in life.
At the G.I.Joe hospital, Duke announces that Dusty is reinstated with
full rank and privileges on the Joe team. While Duke shakes his teammate's
hand, Dusty’s teammates clap and welcome him back to the team. But Dusty's
mother whistles sharply and asks what happened to her son. Duke explains
that when Cobra approached Dusty, Dusty went to Duke, explained what happened
and the two created a plan that would allow Cobra to receive the unstable
armor treatment formula and give the Joes have a chance to defeat Cobra.
Unfortunately, Duke was the only other person besides Dusty who knew that
his defection to Cobra was never for real.
"You poor, poor boy," Dusty's mother tells her son, who wraps his arms
around his mother, smiles and tells her, "Aww, Mom."
