The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 4:
Chaos in the Sea of Lost Souls

10th of 55 episodes in Sunbow season 1. Written by Ron Friedman. First aired September 19, 1985.






Previous episode: The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 3
Next episode: The Pyramid of Darkness, Part 5

Abandoned stuntman Quick Kick rescues Alpine and Bazooka, and the three escape by riding under Maj. Bludd's HISS as the cube there is activated. Tomax briefly escapes custody on the USS Flagg but falls, allowing Xamot to sense his whereabouts and lead a rescue mission. As the Joes fly from the Flagg to the Sea of Lost Souls where Destro is planting the fourth and final cube, Tomax is freed without much opposition. However, the Pyramid of Darkness activates, shutting down all power.

Destro and the Baroness commandeer an old wooden rowing vessel, while Tomax and Xamot escape in rafts and the Joes hoist sails on the USS Flagg. The Crimson Twins alert the Dreadnoks aboard the space station to take over from Zartan, giving the Twins power over the Pyramid and usurping Cobra Commander. Meanwhile, after running a checkpoint, Satin has dropped off Shipwreck and Snake Eyes outside Enterprise City and left to pursue her own fight against Cobra. Maj. Bludd's convoy reaches the hidden Cobra base, where Alpine, Bazooka, and Quick Kick steal a Cobra cargo plane to return to Headquarters. But Cobra troopers on the plane start a fight that leaves the plane out of control shortly after takeoff.
