[Max’s Plumbing: Ben and Mercedes enter the storefront.
Azmuth greets them from the register, wearing his stout, wide human disguise.]
Ben merely walks past, slightly sneering at him on the way.
Ben rolls his eyes.
Ben jumps into the bathroom and closes the door after himself. The loud flush can be heard.
Mercedes looks to Azmuth, who steps up to the exit door.
She rips off her ID Mask – again revealing herself as Dawn – and rushes him, yanking the Any Cloak disguise off him, and gripping his entire Galvan body. To hide them from public view, she rushes into one of the center aisles away from the windows and holds him against the ground.
Mercedes holds out a fist in front of him. He flinches as she punches, leading her armored hand to make a hole in the ground.
She taps a button on her suit that opens up the face of her helmet, revealing the cracked and corrupted face her Mask has been hiding.
Dawn slams a fist down again.
Her Omnitrix beeps in a low tone.
Her body contracts as she is wrapped in a lengths of wood, transforming into the mouth-covered Vertigo. She presses into his face.
One races by the window of the shop.
A number of papers hit the ground down the aisle. Dawn looks up to see Ben. His eyes are wide open and his mouth gaping. He holds his hands out still like the folder of papers in his hands hadn’t already ended up all over the floor.
They simply eye each other.
Dawn swallows, in the hope that Ben didn’t see her transform and that he just arrived.
He begins to walk to her, as if in a daze, with his hands still out.
He keeps going. When he reaches her, he simply kneels down to their level.
Her Omnitrix clicks.
She gulps again, reverting to her human form and backpedaling to the wall.
She turns and runs for the exit, smacking into the door. Becoming Streak, she cuts a portal and goes right through. It closes behind her. Ben raises the Omnitrix up to his face, intending to relay a message, but instead speaks to Azmuth first.
He shakes as he speaks.
[Dawn’s headquarters, outside Bellwood: Starhavoc bounces into the room through the sewers. Landing in the room, she reverts to human and tosses her helmet off, showing her broken skin to Dr. Animo and Darkstar. Darkstar instantly rushes to her side as she paces through the room.]
She turns to the doctor, who sits there in plain awe.
Dawn walks over and punches Animo’s face into the grates below.
Dawn eyes him, bunching up her lips in anticipation of a tirade exiting her mouth.
Dawn revs up her fist.
He tosses off his helmet. His face is rusted, but the “perfect” face he used to have is only a little less broken than Dawn’s own.
Her Alpha Omnitrix clicks again, signaling the home stretch of the Self-Destruct Mode.
Darkstar says nothing, crossing his arms.
Animo walks over to a table and begins lining his tools up.
His face, revealed, blushes a bit.
She disables her voice masking.
He decouples a piece of his armor and slides off a glove. The same texture of his face is matched on his hand. He rolls up a sleeve. Patches of healed skin feature budding hair.
Darkstar inhales as Animo pinches some of his blood out. Dawn and the doctor observe a strange structure to the blood, mixing an array of colors with a human's healthy maroon.
Animo pulls out the needle and brings it over to a microscope and a table of other tools. He extracts a drop onto a pad for close-up analysis.
The doctor sighs as Dawn approaches her.
Dawn bumps her the back of her fist into a pipe.
The powerful caw of an eagle echoes through the sewers surrounding this underground hidey-hole.
A sizeable eagle, coated in a fiery red color scheme and wrapped in its 6-foot tall wings, shoots through a sewer tunnel, covered in dirty water. It unfolds mid-air, prominently revealing an Omnitrix badge on its forehead.
He flaps his wings heavily, and out from within them extends a long chain link that seeks Darkstar. He stands there, stunned, pulled away from the attack at the last moment into a portal that shuts afterward.
The bird alien lands and looks at Animo.
[The Morningstar Manor: Around the side of the mansion, Dawn’s Streak pulls Darkstar through a rift that shuts behind him.]
The heavy metal step of one of the androids is heard. One walks up to Darkstar, having previously been hidden in a local bush.
P looks to Dawn.
She transforms into the fox-like alien, Slyt, a Spartisan based on a member of Omega Squad. They don a simple gray button-up with its collar pointed up. She spawns a single ink soldier, who stands by this side wall, then grabs Darkstar’s hand and plunges it through the soldier, covering much of his hand in ink. She then puts his hand against the wall, pointing out her index finger.
Darkstar rolls his eyes, beginning to sloppily box in the floors of the building. Meanwhile, Dawn gets into cover to look around the corner of the building, spotting multiple Plumbers guarding the front entrance.
Darkstar glances away, refusing to meet her eyes. He dips his hand back into the ink soldier to wet his dry hand.
She reverts to human and glances the layout.
Dawn twists her Omnitrix into Scan Mode, denoted by the yellow coloration of the once-purple black hole badge. A beam shoots from the device and tracks Darkstar from head-to-toe. Her Alphaline Omnitrix beeps.
She continues to look at him. He rolls his eyes before pulling out an old flip phone.
The rattling of guns is heard behind them. Darkstar looks around to the Plumbers previously gathered about 100 feet away now standing right there. Dawn, however, refuses to reveal her face to them.
Dawn transforms into Streak.
The third Plumber in the group fires a blast. The K83 shot goes through Streak and into a portal opened in front of her. The exit point is right behind that Plumber, nailing them in the back, immobilizing them.
Dawn’s Streak turns around and grabs them by the throat, clutching them tightly. They briefly stare into the soulless, pupil-less eyes of the Vigitelican, as Plumber 36B unleashes a taser blast on them that deals no damage. Instead, the volts transfer to Plumber 36A, knocking them out. Dawn throws that body at the hair-brained 36B.
Darkstar walks over and drains them dry.
[Inside the Manor, at a basement level, is an expanse of tech – featuring walls of screens and a number of pieces of tech. Pods to contain androids are empty. The muffled sound of people grunting is heard. It gets louder and louder until an entryway opens, letting in the last grunt from Plumber 36D being punted by Android P.]
They step in the room single-file, with Dawn at the tail.
Dawn looks to P.
Dawn proceeds into the room and begins messing with the array of buttons littered around the many displays.
Darkstar, in the meantime, look to P.
P shakes their head.
Dawn gasps, her eyes widening.
Dawn turns around to the displays, paying mind to the combined image they make of “Access Denied.”
P reveals a panel on his chest with a classic red-circle Plumber badge in the center.
At the desk, a visual scan commences. A low double beep denies their access. P turns around to Dawn, who’s looking the other way.
Dawn ignores this, stepping over to the Plumber body in the doorway. She turns it over and grabs a modern Plumber’s badge off their chest, then kicks the body out into the hallway so the automatic door can close properly.
At the desk, the scan completes properly.
A menagerie of different windows pop open on the screen, with many dedicated to images of DNA sequences. One partially hidden window has an image of Dexter and Lola Morningstar with Michael as a newborn. Dexter’s hair is a zany, bright orange that contorts in every direction. His thick glasses are a heavy prescription, and he wears a lab coat with brown pants. Lola also wears a lab coat, but she misses the glasses and wears black pants. Her deep black hair is more tame, up in a bun behind a long face.
Darkstar looks away from the screen.
She whips out the badge and taps it. A holographic map shows a distant blip on its way.
Several prehensile wires escape from underneath the panel. The android’s eyes glow yellow as the wires mash through buttons on the keyboard, quickly scanning through all of the data available on the screen.
The wires zip back into the chest panel.
Dawn becomes Streak, affixing the Plumber’s badge to just below their own black hole-Alphaline Omnitrix symbol. She cuts a rift into the air and pushes Darkstar and P through. Before she goes, with her sharp fingers, she cuts through all the displays in the room and the central computer, then escapes into the rift.
[The interior of a massive Plumber vessel: This ship that carried at least a dozen Plumbers is empty, save a knocked-out pilot. Dawn's rift in the cockpit spits her out in front of Darkstar and P, who hover over a holographic region map.]
P raises his hands.
P looks to Darkstar, then looks over and says something to him. Whatever P says, Darkstar shakes his head and shoos the android off in response.
P steps up to Dawn, taking her stolen Plumber badge then copying the destination onto the navigation.
Dawn looks at the coordinates.
Dawn’s eyes plead with Darkstar’s.
He looks her in the eyes. In the reflection of her irises, he sees his own dark memories flow, so he shuts his own eyes.
His hands glow black.
The ship shakes with the weight of something dropping on top. The loud cry of Ben’s eagle transformation Fetterwing enters the air.
P runs over to the controls.
The ship powers on. A heads-up display covers the front windshield, including such information as the presence of Ben on the roof. Rolling their hand over an orb and then smacking it, P locks in a destination. As the engine whirs up and the landing gear can be heard folding inward, footsteps along the roof culminate in a burst of green light and Frisbit hugging the windshield.
He tosses his frisbee through the window, cracking the middle. It latches onto P, who is remotely disabled by Frisbit thanks to his Vena Contra Plug add-on. P shakes and cries out as they are shut down.
He leaps into the hole in the windshield, slightly cracking it open more. He recalls his frisbee to himself.
Ben’s Frisbit merely glares at him before tossing his disc at Mercedes, using its homing feature to hurl his body at the frisbee and by extension, Mercedes. She transforms into Brawnoceros, who in her use takes on a slightly bulkier body than Ben’s alongside two extra fixed horns on either side of her jaw. She braces, then fires her horn straight at Frisbit’s disc with intent to destroy it, but he stops his homing so that he falls to the floor instead. He pulls his disc in as well.
Darkstar interjects, blasting Ben.
Frisbit reverts to Fetterwing, who sends out two dueling chain links from either wing, each directed at Dawn and Darkstar. He struggles to reel Dawn’s Brawnoceros in, but can easily lock her arms while grabbing Darkstar and flinging him at her.
Dawn, mirroring Ben’s previous form, becomes Frisbit. Tossing her frisbee at the ship’s controls, she’s able to maneuver the hatch to open beneath the back of the spacious cockpit. Now easier to trap between his chains, Dawn’s Frisbit is immobilized, so she becomes Vertigo.
Vertigo chuckles, looking out of the windshield as the group coasts through the atmosphere into space. With one quick shift, she throws all the forces of the ship’s movement into Fetterwing, launching him out of the ship’s hatch and back down to Earth while bringing the ship to a sudden halt. On the way out, Fetterwing loses his grip on Darkstar.
As he is flung down to Earth and heat picks up, he switches to Combustiball, attempting to counteract all the forces Dawn’s Vertigo had applied to him by combusting in bursts to reverse direction. This is nearly ineffective, as he continues to hurtle towards the ground. Just before reaching it however, he comes up with a daring plan.
His Omnitrix glows.
[Sploosh. A massive explosion of an impact into a river. A capsized boat loses its two navigators, who have fallen into the depths of this body of water. In those same depths, something squid-like detaches its limbs, and as it does this, the old ones explode, bursting him upward while new ones regenerate. He grabs the two men from the ship and repeats this sea combustion method to get back up.
This clearly alien squid flips the boat back over and replaces them in the boat, patting them down as though that will somehow dry their clothing. Ben, reverting to human, nervously rubs the back of his head as he apologizes.]
[Back on the stolen Plumber ship: Acting in the moment to save Darkstar – already knocked out from the lack of oxygen – from dying, she becomes Frisbit, closes the hatch again, and then becomes Wildvine with which she is able to cover the gap in the windshield for the time being. She holds tightly onto him while generating oxygen for him to breathe.
She feels the ship picking up speed yet again as she eyes the orb-based controls.
[Plumber Academy 2814, Deep Space: Magister Hulka stands in front of an array of displays. A lower-level Plumber points to a blip approaching the academy – the blip itself shows as an Omnitrix symbol.]
The station rattles, and an alarm begins to blare.
[Upstairs, where the impact occurred: The hijacked Plumber ship, or what’s left of it, is in fiery pieces. It crashed through a giant window pane, which has already been sealed. We pan down to the floor, where black goo follows a trail of small pieces of metal and tech that run down a hallway and through a completely destroyed doorway. Down the hallway, the lights are out but growls and screams can be heard down the way.]
Students walking through the massive room watch as hard shells replace the windows of the space academy.
Hulka looks to the Appoplexian teacher that brought the students along.
[Into the darkened hallway, the dim gleam of Dawn’s Omnitrix badge is just enough to illuminate her upper body as well as the length of papery skin that wraps Android P onto her back.]
Growls and shrieks are heard alongside destruction farther down the pitch black hallway.
Ports of light shine through glass on a pair of doorways.
Smash, right through them, revealing the messy form Darkstar has adopted. Pitch-black, thick tendrils, talons, and sharp protrusions make up his ten feet mass of a ball, rolling around. The room they have entered, where he wreaks more havoc, is filled with defenseless researchers. It is massive, but at the very center, the focus of all the research hovers inside of strong protection: a pentagonal purple gem housed in a silver border.
The monster that was once Darkstar charges it and bangs on it. Unable to destroy it, he keeps trying with no visible progress to be made.
She turns to a researcher then grabs them.
She opens up her stomach, revealing a rough around the edges, corrosive gem at her core. The energy it radiates quickly weakens the researcher and makes their flesh burn.
Dawn raises a brow, only to see a single doorway the researcher points to towards the left. She closes up her stomach, dropping the researcher, and races towards there, where a gray-skinned humanoid alien in futuristic lab wear chooses to block her.
She pushes through the doorway, only to find some transparent material – something significantly stronger and more advanced than glass – housing two humans in an E-shaped museum exhibit. One’s shiny white head turns its face up, broken glasses visible on his long, sharp-chinned face.
[The roar of the transformed Darkstar erupts in the other room, joined by screams from researchers cowering behind desks.]
Dawn races up to the glass, where the light shines keenly on her deteriorating face.
Dangling upside-down from a faux-tree in one of the prongs of the E is Lola Morningstar, with scraggly redhead and a tattered black-and-white vertically striped jumpsuit. One eye remains shut as she opens the other.
She swings to the top of her tree then drops off in a snowflake-formation into the fake leaves below. She crawls her way to the center adjacent Dexter, keeping a half-meter’s distance from him.
Dawn punches the glass.
Dawn steps back. She becomes Dawnmummy again, using her sheets to remove Android P from her back, laying him on the ground gently. When she looks back up to Dexter and Lola, with the intent of transforming again, they are intently pressed against the glass.
She becomes Dreadsense, and with her otherworldly arachnid legs, she tears through the protective glass – which, like most walls of invincibility in the galaxy, is designed by Azmuth, with the one caveat of being vulnerable to beings from other galaxies, such as Dreadsense.
She stabs one leg each into the shoulders of each Morningstar, pressing them up against the back wall of their chamber.
P’s arms drop to its side again, but they nod along.
Dexter lets out one dry “hah.”
Dawn quickly turns her head to face the direction of Darkstar’s screams.
Dawn presses her Feermodnum legs deeper into each Morningstar’s shoulder. Dexter grunts, but Lola is still unfazed.
A distant roar is heard in the opposite direction of Darkstar.
Dawn looks to the couple.
The room shakes and the roar of an alien of Ben’s is heard again.
Just outside the door of this room, the burst of an Omnitrix transformation. In response, Dawn pulls away from the exhibit-esque holding cell and becomes a lanky gray humanoid alien, with no defining features. The Omnitrix beeps as their speech is filtered through it.
Dexter, wrapping his shoulder in a piece of cloth torn off of his pants, merely chuckles.
A green shard shoots through the door. Dawn’s gray alien instantly throws her arms up to protect her face in an X-shape. Regardless, the shard shoots right through. Dexter, pressing against the glass to observe what follows, steps back. The shard merely bounces off of the glass, though.
More shots come into the room, as Dawn’s gray alien collpses onto the floor. Her Omnitrix badge, and its black hole icon, gradually loses its luster. Bursting through the doorway is Diamondhead. In the background, researchers run away to the other area of the Academy, as Darkstar’s howls can still be heard.
Dawn’s alien rises back up to its feet, grinning. A rock-hard pair of thick cuffs, running from the alien’s wrist down their forearm, adorns the alien on its second coming.
Their Omnitrix badge lights back up, as Diamondhead shoots another set of crystals. This time, when Dawn blocks with her wrists, however, the diamonds are reflected directly back at Diamondhead, who’s caught off guard and hit right in the arm with it.
He establishes a wall of diamond around the exit door, trapping both of them in the room.
Her Omnitrix whirs. Instantly, it clicks, appending an extra concentric orange ring. Self-destruct is still coming. Diamondhead gasps.
Diamondhead extends a thick, strong, spiked diamond arm straight through the alien’s stomach. Dawn is stopped in her tracks, staring down. Diamondhead holds her up to the ceiling.
She falls in two pieces to the floor. Her Omnitrix again powers down. He walks over to the gray alien’s – Blankslate’s – lifeless body, at which point, her two pieces join back together, this time with diamond-proof armor at her stomach.
She leaps up and slams her similarly diamond-proof wrist cuffs into his head, chipping a piece of the diamond body off.
She hits his chin, cracking his jaw off. He tries to speak but merely mumbles.
She turns around to him.
Diamondhead transforms into Alkamine, who initially starts with a window in his jaw peering into his mouth and throat, but he regenerates it quickly.
Dawn’s Blankslate finds herself contained in a neutralized gel sac from Alkamine.
Dawn becomes Streak. Alkamine quickly begins to turn up the heat, acidifying his bubble. Streak struggles to drag her fingers to open her portal, so after just barely cutting some open, she becomes Starhavoc, creating tiny explosions that produce gaps in the acid. Unable to close up the holes from outside of the bubble, Alkamine is left with no choice but to run inside. In this sliver of time while he slithers over, Dawn becomes Streak once more and teleports out of the room.
[Back in the main room of the research lab, the amalgam Darkstar continues to claw at the pod containing the gem. Streak arrives behind him, a good enough distance away that his wild tentacles don’t knock him away.]
He lets one howl then one much louder.
He unleashes one furious blow at the pod with the gem.
Dawn starts to cut a portal open but keeps pulling upward, levitating up, to create one large enough for Darkstar’s new form.
Diamondhead comes bursting right through the doors, hands aimed at Dawn and Darkstar.
He becomes Dreadsense.
His eyes glow, as Darkstar and Dawn each stop in their places. He begins to approach them, but Dawn’s Streak is quick to recuperate. Dreadsense stops in his tracks, again gasping.
She puts a hand on Darkstar to pull him.
She starts tugging on Darkstar, only to realize he’s too heavy. Dreadsense grins.
Streak lowers to the floor.
She throws open a portal in front of Ben’s Dreadsense, putting him on edge. Afterward, she becomes Vertigo.
Her latent portal closes.
She backs up to Darkstar and leans against him.
Dreadsense’s eyes curve like brows depressing one and raising the other. His eyes gape.
[We pan to outside of the Academy, where several large jet boosters are planted at the base, keeping it in a constant cycle akin to a planet. The boosters all flicker off for a moment as the station goes into free float in space.
From this perspective, we can see the small blip of Vertigo and Darkstar’s amalgam form blasting at mach speeds back out through the hole they entered.
Less than fifty miles away from the station, with the Academy still fully in view, Darkstar gradually reverts back to human. Only shards of his armor are still present, leaving him completely unprotected in the absolute zero cold of space. He gradually loses speed, with Vertigo hanging out tightly to him. When he’s nearly stopped, she reverts to human. Protected head-to-toe by her armor, she just holds his hand as they coast.]
She taps her Omnitrix. It beeps.
The Omnitrix clicks, invoking the final concentric circle indicating imminent self-destruct.
She taps her helmet, collapsing it into her suit.
The Omnitrix beeps – almost as if it was speaking, in a panic. Suddenly, bits and pieces of her armor from her arm and leg are reformed to cover Darkstar’s torso and head.
As she knocks out, she is yanked by a chain. From a windowsill outside the Academy, Fetterwing – in a Plumber suit as he can’t breathe in space – reels the two back in. He lays them flat, as the last puff of a breath exits Dawn. Fetterwing sighs.
He becomes Frisbit, whose frisbee latches onto Dawn herself. It tinkers directly inside of her body, and very quickly, her skin begins to boil. The Alphaline Omnitrix, hissing, leaps off of her body. He pulls the frisbee off and becomes Healding, reviving Dawn and Darkstar. Then, using Alkamine, he puts bubbles over their heads to keep in whatever oxygen they have. He watches as the Omnitrix attempts to reattach to Dawn, but he quickly puts a bubble around all of her to keep her safe. It then goes for Darkstar but fails there as well.
It stops in the air.
The Omnitrix badge on the Alphaline loses its luster as a red, ghostly transparent humanoid jumps out.
Dawn groans, her eyes flittering open to view Alpha’s spirit-esque presence.
A whip-like hand from the creature latches onto the Omnitrix. Like a wire, energy flows through it. But very quickly, Alpha is electrocuted.
He reverts to Frisbit. He tosses his frisbee, affixing it to Alpha.
Frisbit’s frisbee pricks into Alpha’s body, tapping into every last nanite powering him.
Frying every nanite, Alpha is reduced to disconnected dust. Frisbit looks down to Dawn.
They catch each other’s eyes, revealing Dawn’s have changed – one is golden and the other violet.
Dawn weakly reaches her hands out to the Alphaline, empty and floating. Frisbit grabs it.
Dawn grins, passing out again.
[Null Void Incarcecon: A staff-only backroom. The Warden has every Baron tasked with patrolling the halls of the prison in a lineup, their helmets in hand to reveal their various species faces.]
Holographic footage plays behind him of a Baron assisting the cowboy spider-resembling bounty hunter Spitshine safely exit the premises the day before.
The footage shifts to the same Baron chatting with Vilgax through his bars.
All of the Barons look left and right to each other.
He reaches into the crowd and pulls a Baron out.
The footage shifts to this precise Baron – in plain clothes – knocking out another, dragging them into a supply closet, and coming out with their armor. They go onto notice the camera and blast it off.
The viewers all gasp, except the Baron in question.
The warden chuckles, then snaps his fingers. Two high-ranked Barons, helmets on and wearing all-black, grab the accused out of the room.
Everyone shakes their head and straightens up. The warden walks out. We pan to one guard in particular, a woman of a blue whale-like species. She puts her helmet back on.
[V32: The very same whale Baron stops on her patrol at Vilgax’s cell.]
The Baron turns fully to the cell and slides her weapon along the bars, drawing everyone’s attention. A couple of Barons across the room begin to make their way over.
The Baron nods, as the two others come over.
Baron 36B chuckles nervously. After a moment of questionable staring, Baron 36C joins the laughter.
This Baron begins to also make noise dragging his weapon along the prison bars, as Baron 36B – the future Ben using Ghostfreak to possess them – waves to Vilgax.
Dawn finally gets their wish - and outs their identity in the process. Now they must race against the clock to save themselves from certain demise.
- Ben learns Dawn is Mercedes.
- Alpha is revealed as the power source and namesake of the Alphaline Omnitrix, which is destroyed.
- Ben saves Dawn from her nanite-inflicted disease.
- Darkstar's parents and background are revealed.

- Vertigo is not supposed to be able to speak, yet did early on when intimidating Azmuth.
- This episode was originally titled Unmasked.
- The preview for this episode, unlike past previews, is the combination of two separate excerpts (like a trailer) rather than one contiguous scene.
- In the preview, Brawnoceros was used by Dawn to intimidate Azmuth. She was swapped in the final cut of the episode to Vertigo.
- Originally, Ben was going to use Vertigo to save himself from crash-landing on the ground. This was changed last-minute to Suctionrupt and him maneuvering toward water, mostly to maintain Vertigo as a Dawn-exclusive alien.
- This episode had the quickest release cycle of any second run episodes of the series so far, and excluding the time between the previous episode and this one, the shortest release cycle of the series at-large since Infernosphere.
