Story consultant Buzz Dixon, written by Ron Friedman. First aired April 18, 1987.








Preceded by: G.I. Joe: The Movie Opening Sequence
Next episode: G.I. Joe: The Movie, Part 2

As Serpentor berates his subordinates for recent failures, Cobra Commander openly challenges Serpentor's leadership. Meanwhile, a mysterious woman infiltrates the Terror Drome, evades its defenses, and reaches Serpentor's war room. Serpentor recognizes her as Pythona, and she orders him to capture the Broadcast Energy Transmitter. The Joes are testing the device in the Himalayas when Cobra attacks. Serpentor is captured in the battle, and Roadblock leads a team in pursuit of the retreating Cobras. They reach a weird grove where they encounter the forces of Cobra-La.
