Arise, Serpentor, Arise! Part 2

2nd of 30 episodes in Sunbow season 2. Story by Buzz Dixon, Teleplay by Ron Friedman. First aired September 16, 1986.









Previous episode: Arise, Serpentor, Arise! Part 1
Next episode: Arise, Serpentor, Arise! Part 3

Slaughter's team makes it back to Headquarters with a partial list of tombs targeted by Cobra, and the Joes begin sending teams to defend them. Zarana uses a disguise to direct the Joes away from an Egyptian general's tomb and steals the first DNA sample. Tomax and Xamot's forces easily punch through stripped-down Joe defenses in Paris and steal Napoleon's DNA.

Flint's team fails to stop the Dreadnoks at Montezuma's tomb, but they witness the DNA transfer. Duke and the Oktober Guard team up at the tomb of Ivan the Terrible, where they are attacked by BATs.

Beach Head and Mainframe sight a ghost at Vlad Tepes' tomb in Transylvania. Giving chase, they discover the ghost to be the Baroness in disguise, and her Vipers use a tunneling machine to plow through the castle, grabbing the DNA and collapsing the building on top of the Joes.
