The Traitor, Part 2

35th of 55 episodes in Sunbow season 1. Written by Buzz Dixon. First aired November 26, 1985.









Previous episode: The Traitor, Part 1
Next episode: Cobra Quake

Dusty is taken to Cobra Temple, as the Joes change their security code. In gratitude for revealing the Joes' armor treatment formula, Cobra Commander transfers command of Lt. Clay Moore's work detail to Dusty. Clay Moore challenges Dusty to a duel in the arena, and Dusty wins but spares Clay Moore's life. Dusty then leads a Cobra attack on another chemical plant, using his knowledge of Joe procedures and the armor treatment to block the Joes' defenses. As Cobra uses the armor treatment to make their uniforms laser-proof, Cobra Commander leads an attack for the final chemical but is unsuccessful due to the Joes' use of flamethrowers. Some time later, Dusty draws the Joes away from the target, allowing a successful second attack and leading Flint, Lady Jaye, and Shipwreck into an ambush where they are captured.

Cobra gathers the Joes into the arena to test the new mind control gas on them. Since Tomax and Xamot question Dusty's loyalty, Cobra Commander has him prove his allegiance by personally gassing the Joes. Dusty instead directs the gas on Cobra, and it causes anything coated with armor treatment to disintegrate. The base is overrun, but Cobra Commander escapes with the help of Lt. Clay Moore. At a hospital, a recovering Duke explains that Dusty's treason was a ruse to trick Cobra into stealing the defective armor treatment.
