In the [[Cobra Arena of Sport]], [[Duke (RAH)|Duke]] is forced into a battle with [[Ramar|the giant]]. [[Cobra Commander (RAH)|Cobra Commander]] and [[Destro (RAH)|Destro]] control the two combatants via the mind controlling headbands. With joysticks in their hands, the Commander controls the giant while Destro controls Duke. Cobra Commander chides Destro's lack of gaming skills as the giant proceeds to beat Duke up. Furious but calm, Destro lets go of the joystick to let Duke fight the giant on his own will.

Back at the cave, the Joes trigger a booby trap that seals them in the cave and now has to face the S.N.A.K.E.s. At first menacingly dangerous, the S.N.A.K.E.s turned out to be poorly programmed and slow to respond to changes in tactics. They are soon taken care of enough. Snake-Eyes gets in a rail car to get the crystals.

Flash melts the blast door sealing the cave's entrance only to find Bludd and the Cobras waiting outside. Snake-Eyes manages to come back from deep the cave with radioactive gas spewing out after him. Rather than let his teammates be caught in the poison cloud, he seals himself behind a blastproof fiberglass. Reluctant to leave Snake-Eyes, the Joes have no choice but to leave him behind.

Flash melts the blast door sealing the cave's entrance only to find Bludd and the Cobras waiting outside. Bludd sets of an explosive charge in the mine, releasing a cloud of radioactive gas. Snake-Eyes manages to come back from deep the cave with the radioactive gas following him. Rather than let his teammates be caught in the poison cloud, he seals himself behind a blastproof glass. Reluctant to leave Snake-Eyes, the Joes have no choice but to leave him behind.
   
 
A conference in an island in the Pacific discusses how to deal with the threat of Cobra. [[General Flagg]] assures a reporter that they remain firm in their stance: to never surrender. This is tested as they are abducted by being teleported to Cobra's base and turned into mindless prisoners.

Duke managed to escape and is brought back to G.I. Joe's base. However, the trauma and exhaustion from the escape has given him no idea where Cobra is actually located.

*Snake-Eyes brings down the protective shield by tripping an electric eye with his pistol. The electric-eye is on ''his'' side of the shield, though. Which means that in the event of an emergency, someone would ''have to'' stay on the side with the deadly radioactive gas and sacrifice himself in order to activate it. Doesn't sound like a very well thought-out safety measure.

*After Snake-Eyes activates the protective shield, Tripwire starts pounding on it with the butt of his rifle, trying to save his teammate by busting him out. Needless to say, that would flood the cave with the radioactive gas, killing all of them and making Snake-Eye's sacrifice a moot point.

*The world's leaders refuse Cobra's order to surrender, yet stupidly follow Cobra Commander's order to show up at Tanu Island. Did ''no one'' take a moment to think that they were possibly walking into a trap?
