9th of 55 episodes in Sunbow season 1. Written by Ron Friedman. First aired September 18, 1985.






Previous episode: The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 2
Next episode: The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 4

Flint and Lady Jaye survive at the Devil's Playground, but Wild Bill's reinforcements arrive too late to stop Destro from planting the cube. Shipwreck and Snake-Eyes are pursued by a Cobra agent but take refuge in a night club where they befriend a singer named Satin. Roadblock's team has difficulty at the Chinese City of the Dead when its terra cotta warriors come to life and attack them. The Crimson Twins are able to position their cube there, but Tomax is captured by the Joes.

Alpine and Bazooka are hindered by an avalanche at the Mountain of Glass, where Maj. Bludd plants his cube and all three of them activate, sending beams of energy up to Space Station Delta. As the Joes at the mountain search for lost team members, Storm Shadow gets to Alpine and Bazooka first and separates the patch of ice they are standing on, leaving them to float down an icy river where they meet dangerous leopard seals.
