Southern Plumber Prison
October 31, 2026, 3:16 AM EDT

[Cryson is sitting in his cell in the prison, alone. He is sitting at a chair, with a small table in front of him, and a large mirror on the wall. He looks half angry, half depressed. He then takes off an ID mask, turning him back into Sub. He pulls out a Plumber badge and calls Hornbok. After a few moments, a hologram appears above the badge.]

[Hornbok]: Report, Sub?

[Sub]: The last week hasn't changed much... In fact, nothing has changed at all since the first report... Paper brought me into the team he formed and they told me about the Hotshots, and that's it...

[Hornbok]: Does he suspect you to be anything more than you've let him see?

[Sub]: I don't think so, no...

[Hornbok]: Keep it that way...

[Sub]: See you soon...

[Sub puts his badge away and then looks into the mirror at his real face. Suddenly, there is a knock on the wall. Sub puts on his ID mask and then walks over to his bed and slides it back, revealing a secret passageway. He picks up a small stone with a note attached to it. The note reads "get in here" with no uppercase letters. Cryson crawls into the passageway, and soon he makes it to a secret room. Inside, Paper and all the other member of the team are sitting around, staring at Cryson. He stands up after getting out of the passageway and then sits down in a chair. He sits silently before realizing that everyone is staring at him.]

[Cryson]: Why's everyone staring at me?

[Claw]: You're late... We told you to be here at three...

[Cryson]: I fell asleep... Sorry...

[Paper looks at him with an awkward look.]

[Cryson]: Right, no apologies... Sor-- Won't happen again...

[There is more silence for a few moments.]

[Cryson]: So why are we here?

[Razor]: We meet every Saturday at three in the morning...

[Whip]: And we never end up talking about anything...

[Cryson]: No one here has to say anything?

[Everyone except Paper shakes their head.]

[Paper]: I've got something, actually... for Cryson, only, though...

[Cryson, suspicious]: Okay?

[Paper]: Let's head back to my room...

[He points to a passageway behind his chair. The camera cuts to Paper and Cryson arriving at the former's room.]

[Cryson]: Can you just tell me why we're in here--

[Paper]: Look...

[He sits down and points to a chair next to him. Cryson sits down.]

[Cryson]: So now can we--

[Suddenly, Paper reaches over and starts grabbing at Cryson's face.]

[Cryson]: DUDE!?

[Paper backs off.]

[Paper]: Calm down, I was only kidding... Wow that's a strong enchantment...

[Cryson]: What!?

[Paper]: Look, Sub, you can take off this mask

[Cryson]: Sub?

[Paper]: You're just Sub wearing an ID mask that my girlfriend enchanted...

[He takes off the mask and throws it at Paper. He catches it before it hits him.]

[Sub]: I forgot that you were a detective...

[Paper]: I wish I was a detective...

[Sub]: Okay!?

[Paper]: Sub, this is all a ruse...

[Sub]: Huh?

[Paper]: The Rotolysian Ambassador isn't dead...

[Sub]: I think you've lost it...

[Paper takes out his Plumbers' badge and throws it at Sub. It hits him in the chest.]

[Sub]: Ow...

[Paper]: I caught the mask, so-- Just watch the first file on their...

[Sub loads the first file and then views it. The camera zooms in on the file, which is a flashback with Paper narrating. The flashback shows Aldabarbarians and Betelgusians.]

[Paper, voiceover]: After the Aldabarbarians and Betelgusians had their mini-war this past summer, Sci, Hornbok, and I made the same conclusion that the Elite were somehow involved...

[The camera shows Paper, Sci, and Hornbok sitting around an office table, discussing important matters.]

[Paper, voiceover]: We decided to pull a ruse... We used the Rotolysian negotiations to our advantage...

[The camera shows Paper and Sci talking to the old Rotolysian Ambassador.]

[Paper, voiceover]: He agreed to be a part of the ruse, as long as we didn't kill him...

[The camera shows Paper and Sci standing across from Rex, Rocket, and Ancy in a random city on Earth.]

[Paper, voiceover]: We thought of what to do, and one day Sci and I saw Rex, Rocket, and Ancy, our old enemies, while we were visiting Earth... We told them about our plan, and we agreed to help...

[The camera shows three scenes: one of Rex putting on an ID mask to become Faceless, Rocket putting an ID mask on to become the old Ambassador, and Ancy putting an ID mask on to become the new Ambassador.]

[Paper, voiceover]: They each took their roles, and then the ruse began...

[The camera shows an explosion at the Rotolysian government building.]

[Paper, voiceover]: We had Faceless attack Rotolysian's government building.

[It shows Paper, Sci, and Rocket as the old Ambassador looking at the footage of the explosion. It shows Paper leaning on the computer, and as he walks away, a small chip dissolves into the computer.]

[Paper, voiceover]: We sabotaged the security footage so that they couldn't find out that Faceless committed the crime...

[The camera shows the other Rotolysians discovering the crime, with Paper near the dead Ambassador and Sci near them on the ground.]

[Paper, voiceover]: Once they thought I had killed the Ambassador, they took me away, and I got sent here...

[The flashback ends, and it cuts back to Paper and Sci.]

[Sub]: Why did you do this and who knows about this?

[Paper]: You, Sci, Hornbok, Rex, Rocket, Ancy, and the Ambassador are the only ones who know about this--

[Sub]: Not Bink...?

[Paper]: I wanted to tell her... But Sci suggested that I shouldn't.... As for why... like I said... We thought the Elite were involved in the Aldabarbarian and Betelgusian conflicts, so we made a way that I could keep an eye on Lotin...

[Sub]: And how are you doing that...

[Paper]: It starts in the morning, when Lotin is transferred to this prison.

[Theme Song]

[Sub]: I'm still confused... Why the Rotolysians?

[Paper]: We needed an alibi. Look, I know you're confused... I've been talking to Hornbok every time we've needed to tell something to each other... I know about Lotin and the Aldabarbarians, but my missions not done yet... And you're here to help me...

[Sub]: Wait, you knew someone was coming

[Paper]: I needed backup, and Hornbok said that we would find someone to go on a special mission...

[Sub]: I guess I understand, but, don't you miss all the things you're missing out on...

[Paper]: I'd rather not talk about it... Okay, Lotin will be here by eight in the morning... So we need to talk about our plan...

[The camera cuts to the Academy. Relgo is sitting in the office as the recruits begin to arrive. All the recruits have arrived, even Reg, who got back to the Academy early in the morning. The only recruit who is missing is Ray, who walks in as Relgo stands up from his desk.]

 
Plumbers' Academy
October 31, 2026, 7:19 AM EDT

[Holly]: Excuse me? Where's Hornbok?

[Relgo]: Hornbok and Ivada both took the weekend off after yesterday's events... That leaves me in charge... I hope that's not a problem...

[Holly, awkwardly]: Oh, um, no, not at all...

[Chris]: What's the mission...

[Relgo]: You heard yesterday and before about the events involving Paper, a member of this team and Lieutenant with the Plumbers.. Reg, I'm sure the others can fill you in... Anyway, the Rotolysians have been protesting ever since the killing and it's starting to get out of hand... We're going to intervene...

[Figy]: Covertly?

[Relgo]: No, the Galactic Peace Union agrees with our decision and has authorized us to send a team to Rotolysia to end the protests...

[Harry]: You're sending our team?

[Relgo]: The others need a rest, you're all clearly capable of handling the situation, and after you proved yourself yesterday, we think it's time we start to send you on more missions...

[Ray]: Sounds good to me... You guys?

[Roy]: Agreed...

[Ahmad]: Great...

[Ray]: When do we leave?

[Relgo]: Immediately...

[The camera cuts to the protests on Rotolysia. Tens of thousands of Rotolysians are gathered in the main square of Rotolysia's capital city. All the people are protesting because of the killing of the Ambassador. Several government officials are leading the protests. The camera zooms out, revealing it to be camera footage. Dexis can be seen watching the footage, with another figure standing behind him. The figure walks forward and is revealed to be Damian Walker. He starts to lean at Dexis' desk. Dexis turns off the screen and the lights around him flicker on, revealing the area to be his ship. In front of him, Abbaddon and Thebes train against Colossus.]

 
Dexis' Vessel
October 31, 2026, 7:32 AM EDT

[Damian]: I'm growing bored... A plan that depends on the actions of the enemy is never a good plan...

[Dexis]: We don't depend on their actions, we just need to wait until a project is complete until we continue with the rest of the plan...

[He sees the training unfold in front of him. Abbaddon blasts dark lightning at Colossus, who forms his arms into shields and redirects the blasts back at Abbaddon. He jumps in the air and kicks Abbaddon, knocking him into the wall. He falls to the ground. Thebes runs at Colossus and slices open his back, but Colossus grabs Thebes and then charges him with electricity. He spins around and kicks him into the opposite wall.]

[Dexis]: And while we're waiting, we can continue building up our own young team...

[Colossus turns towards Dexis.]

[Dexis]: Rotolysia... Kill any Plumber on sight...

[Colossus nods his head and then walks off as the camera cuts back to the prison. Paper, Cryson, and the others are standing around the lobby, but none of them are near each other. Many other prisoners are scattered around, in between the different members of the group. Nylexx and Harvyx are both in the lobby, but they are not close to each other. A guard enters the balcony.]

[Guard]: ONE ARRIVAL!

[On the upper ledge, a figure is lead into the elevator. A few moments later, the elevator opens on the lower level, and the figure walks out. The guard on the balcony exits and then closes a metal door behind him, sealing off the chamber. The figure walks around for a bit. Cryson approaches Paper.]

[Cryson]: That is Lotin, right?

[Paper]: Correct, begin Phase one...

[Cryson nods his head and then walks off, as if they never talked. He approaches Nylexx and then randomly punches him in the face with brute force. Nylexx is sent backwards, and he then slides across the ground. He gets up, only to see Cryson charging at him. Cryson jumps at him and kicks him in the face. Nylexx stumbles up and then jumps to the side as Cryson's fist flies into the wall.]

[Nylexx, confused]: Is something the matter?

[Cryson grabs Nylexx's arm and pulls it directly backwards. He takes his other hand pushes it against Nylexx's back, and then spins him around and smashes him into the wall. He turns Nylexx one-eighty in the opposite direction and then charges across the lobby, directly at his real target: Lotin. As he charges, Lotin turns and sees the two prisoners charging at him, and before he can react, Paper tackles him out of the way. Before Lotin gets up, Paper runs down a hallway and then turns around and puts a hood over his head. Lotin looks up and sees the hooded Paper in front of him, not knowing who it is. Paper signals to follow and Lotin slowly gets up before following the figure. Meanwhile, behind him, Cryson backs away from Nylexx and bumps into someone behind him. He turns around and sees Harvyx.]

[Harvyx]: You want a fight? Well you picked the wrong person...

[He punches at Cryson as the camera cuts to Lotin walking down the hallway. He sees Paper halfway inside a cell. He motions for Lotin to follow. As Lotin follows, Paper disappears into the cell. Lotin enters the cell, looks into it, and sees Paper, without a hood, aiming a Plumber blaster directly at him. Lotin scoffs.]

[Lotin]: How'd you get that into prison?

[Paper]: Well it's a Plumber prison, and I'm a Plumber... It wasn't that difficult...

[Lotin]: It's funny how you always forget that you can't kill me...

[Paper]: But I can't hurt you...

[Lotin]: Whatever, you're ruse to get into prison was successful, and you had Hornbok transfer me here, can I leave now?

[Paper looks at him with an awkward look.]

[Lotin]: Surprised I figured it out?

[Paper]: I'm surprised that you didn't also say why any of this was done... Of course you figured it out, I wanted you to...

[Lotin]: And I wanted to follow along, it's a win-win situation...

[Paper tosses the weapon onto a table.]

[Lotin]: As for why, I don't think you have a reason, and if you do, I could care less about it? You bring me here to spy on me, but what would I be doing that you would need to spy on me for...

[Paper]: No, I didn't bring you here to spy on you... I actually need your help...

[Lotin]: To do what?

[Paper]: Hornbok told me all about your escape... The conflict between the Aldabarbarians and Betelgusians is very complicated... But it's never been this insanely stupid... You're involved somehow...

[Lotin]: How does this involve me helping you?

[Paper]: I need to escape prison... I need to escape, and then be recaptured by Aldabarbarians... I need you to help me because you work with the Aldabarbarians.

[Lotin]: Why would I help you...?

[Paper]: In return, your freedom...

[Lotin]: This is rather suspicious...

[Paper]: It's not enough to convince you?

[Lotin]: I'm not going to help you...

[Paper]: My final argument...

[He pulls vial of a red liquid out of his pocket. Lotin scoffs once again.]

[Lotin]: Colored water?

[Paper]: This is the blood of Excelsium...

[Lotin]: I see you're very well prepared...

[Paper]: So you'll help?

[Lotin]: If you free all the members of the Elite...

[Paper, after a long pause]: Deal...

[Lotin holds out his hand.]

[Paper]: We're leaving as soon as possible...

[Paper exits the cell as he puts the vial back into his pocket. The camera cuts to Rotolysia. The team has just exited the ship. They are circled by angry Rotolysians.]

 
Rotolysia
October 31, 2026, 8:34 AM EDT

[Rotolysian #1]: YOUR FRIEND KILLED OUR AMBASSADOR!

[Rotolysian #2]: WE HATE THE PLUMBERS! GO AWAY!

[Rotolysian #3]: THE PLUMBERS SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED ON THIS PLANET!

[Reg, softly]: This is ridiculous...

[Chris, softly]: We've got to do something...

[Colossus, voice]: You're not going to do anything...

[The crowd clears, leaving an opening between the team and Colossus.]

[Holly, shocked]: Isn't that Colossus?

[Colossus]: You are correct, Plumber...

[Ray]: Colossus?

[Colossus]: And my order are to kill all Plumbers on sight...

[He charges at them.]

[Commercial]

[Colossus runs up to the recruits, and Ray immediately forms his armor and forms a giant energy shield to block a hammer punch from Colossus. He smacks his arms, both in the shape of hammers, against the shield, quickly shattering it. Harry and Figy step forward and begin to directly attack Colossus. Figy jumps and kicks Colossus back, and then lands and Harry's foot and gets pushed by him, forward into Colossus. The robot slides as both its arm turn into whips that zoom at the two closest recruits. Harry's legs get trapped by the whips, but Reg jumps forward, turns into a wolf, and breaks the whips away from Harry. As the fight continues, the Rotolysians around start to flee the scene. Paul and Holly turn towards them.]

[Holly]: Don't run, it only puts you in more danger!

[Colossus retracts his whip and brings Reg in with him. He then grabs Reg in his arm and throws him back, towards a group of Rotolysians. Paul jumps up and catches Reg before he lands on the group. He lands in front of them and puts Reg to the ground. He nods to them and then turns to go fight Colossus. Roy blasts a laser at Colossus, which burns off his arm. It quickly regrows as Roy tosses a small explosive device at Colossus. He catches it as it explodes in his face, knocking him off to the side.]

[Roy]: I was thinking guys... If we could hack into Colossus' memory files, we might be able to access Dexis' computer... Anyone really good with computers?

[Everyone suddenly looks at Ahmad.]

[Ahmad]: What?

[Paul]: You're the tech guy...

[Ahmad]: He needs to be out cold, and then I can try...

[The other nods or say yes in agreement. The camera cuts back to the prison. Cryson is thrown back into his cell by three guards, who quickly shut the door and lock it.]

[Guard]: Solitary confinement for a full week, then reevaluation; deal with it.

[Cryson falls back into a chair and sits there for a moment before getting up and heading through the crawlspace into the secret meeting room. Only Razor is there. She is sitting in a chair, watching a news stream from her planet. She sees Cryson in the room and turns off the stream and then looks at him. Cryson stands up and then sits in a chair across from Razor. They don't speak for a moment.]

[Razor]: So, how long were you planning on keeping it a secret?

[Cryson, eyes widening]: What?

[Razor]: That you and Paper are Plumbers...

[Cryson]: We weren't going to tell you...

[She stands up.]

[Razor]: After the fight you deliberately caused this morning, it's become even more obvious that you two are here undercover for something...

[Cryson]: And you want to kill me because I'm a Plumber...

[Razor]: No, our entire group is made up of people who were imprisoned for being in the wrong place at the wrong time...

[She walks towards him and stops directly in front of him.]

[Razor]: What's your reason?

[He closes his eyes for a moment and throws off his ID mask. Razor looks at Sub as he starts to explain.]

[Sub]: You obviously know that Paper got here first as part of a ruse... He tricked the Rotolysians into thinking that he killed their Ambassador in order to get to a Plumber prison and ultimately have Lotin, the leader of the Elite, transferred to the same prison he was in for reason that I really don't understand... I'm just here for backup.

[He smiles to try and lighten the mood.]

[Sub]: Why do you care?

[Razor]: Because I'm also a Plumber... I was arrested because I was caught with stolen medical equipment that I was returning to the Plumbers... My ship broke down, so I had to borrow a non-Plumber ship, and... You can guess how that went...

[Sub]: Not very good... I'm Sub, by the way, not Cryson...

[Razor]: My name's Corona...

[She grabs Sub's hands and blushes. He tries to back away but she bends in and kisses him on the lips. He blushes as Paper crawls into the secret room from his cell and sees them kissing. Sub notices Paper and pushes Corona away from him. He drops silent.]

[Sub]: I'm sorry, it--

[Paper]: We're leaving soon anyway... I've made the final preparations...

[Corona]: You're leaving?

[Sub]: I didn't know...

[Paper]: Sub, you can't jeopardize the mission.

[Sub]: She's a Plumber, though... She can help us...

[Corona nods her head.]

[Paper]: When I call you with the signal, you explain that to Hornbok and he'll get both of you back to the Academy... Until then, be ready...

[Paper grins at Sub and then heads back through the crawlspace. Corona steps next to Sub and looks into his face.]

[Corona, trailing off at the end]: So, you're from Earth, but can you tell me more about you...?

[The camera cuts to the lobby of the prison. Paper is sitting at a table, and Lotin is standing on the far side. Lotin slowly begins to walk over to Paper. Paper stands up and begins to walk away. Across the room, the other members of Paper's group are all standing near each other.]

[Hook]: And that's our cue...

[Whip punches Hook in the face, knocking her back. Claw retaliates against Whip and soon the entire group has started a brawl among themselves. The guards watching from the balcony notice the fighting.]

[Guard #1]: More fighting?

[Guard #2]: That's it, we're going on lockdown...

[The guards head towards the elevator. On the lower level, Paper and Lotin get on either side of the elevator as it lowers to the prison level. It opens, and the guards storm out. Paper trips one guard and Lotin trips the other as they rush into the elevator and close it behind them. Suddenly, the lockdown alarm begins to go off and then elevator stops in place. Paper takes out his Plumber blaster and blasts a whole through the ceiling of the elevator. He climbs up the column and eventually makes it to the top. He shoots at the guards and workers as Lotin crawls up behind him. Once most of the guards are down, Paper runs for the docking bay as Lotin punches the last guard to the side. They enter the docking chamber as the alarms continue to go off behind them.]

[Lotin]: I never thought escaping would be this easy...

[Paper]: That was the easy part...

[They close the door to the docking bay as they quickly board a ship. Paper enters some codes into the ship and the airlock opens. The ship heads out of the bay as a large Plumber ship stops their path shortly after they leave.]

[Paper]: This... is the hard part...

[The camera cuts onto the Plumbers ship across from them. All the Magisters and old recruits are in the ship as the other ship stalls in front of them.]

[Nick]: This makes no sense... You knew their would be a prison break?

[Hornbok]: I've maintained contact with Sub ever since we sent him undercover into the prison. He says he's heard rumors of a planned escape, and this must be it... Now, do we have a visual on whoever is inside that ship?

[Toon]: I can get one...

[Toon enters a code into the ship and begins to hack into the system of the ship across from them. Suddenly, a holographic screen appears on the ship, taken from a security camera on the other ship. In the view of the camera, are Paper and Lotin.]

[Sci, outraged]: NO WAY!

[The camera cuts back to Rotolysia. Ray slashes a white energy sword at Colossus and then deforms it as Colossus drops to his knees and then Ahmad blasts him with electricity, overloading his circuits. He drops onto the floor as Ahmad jumps in and quickly begins to work on him.]

[Ahmad]: Stay alert... I'm going to try and turn him off first...

[He opens up a hatch in the back of Colossus' head and looks around for a moment. He quickly finds a small red wire and cuts it, turning off the robot.]

[Ahmad]: Okay, we should be safe...

[He begins to unscrew Colossus' back armor, revealing the central processing unit.]

[Ahmad]: Well that wasn't too hard to find...

[He insert a cord from a wrist computer into Colossus' CPU. He waits for a moment until an LED near the CPU flashes green. He takes out the cord and then begins to type at his wrist communicator.]

[Reg]: And that did what, exactly?

[Ahmad]: This computer is now connected to Colossus' CPU. I can download information and access data files easily now...

[He goes back to the typing at the wrist computer and eventually finds a computer address.]

[Ahmad]: Okay, this might be Dexis' computer address...

[He works for another moment.]

[Ahmad]: It is, and I already found its registration informa--

[His eyes widen.]

[Ahmad]: It makes sense now...

[Harry]: What makes sense?

[Ahmad]: Dexis... is a Rotolysian...

[The camera cuts back to the Plumbers ship with the team on it.]

[Water]: Paper's betraying us?

[Rob]: So help me I will...

[Toon]: And Lotin's there too...

[Will]: I knew something was wrong... Come on, let's go get him...

[The four Plumbers run to get their space suits and then head for the airlock on the ship. Meanwhile, Paper and Lotin look at a screen of the remaining team on their ship.]

[Lotin]: Oh look, your team...

[Paper]: It's part of the plan... They need to know that I've been captured by Aldabarbarians...

[Lotin, only half-listening, notices several of Plumbers heading towards the ship.]

[Lotin]: We've got company...

[Paper]: Stay here, I'll meet them down in the docking bay...

[He turns and runs down into the docking bay. The camera cuts to him arriving. He waits for the door to open and then gets blasted back at Water and Rob slam through the wall. Paper lands on his back and looks up to see Water and Rob jumping at him. He rolls out of the way and then gets kicked in the gut by Will.]

[Will, furious]: TRAITOR!

[Paper slides back and gets caught by Rob. He slams Paper around and smashes him into wall, dropping him to the ground. The four Plumbers surround him as he slowly gets up, his face slightly bloody. He tries to catch his breathe. Will relaxes his stance.]

[Will]: You don't seem normal... You okay?

[Paper]: It's more complicated than you think it is...

[Water]: Get explaining...

[Paper]: I'm sorry... I can't explain...

[Water punches him, sending Paper into the wall. He drops to the ground and then snaps around and slowly gets up again.]

[Paper]: I can take a beating... I deserve one for what I've been doing... But you shouldn't kill me... I haven't betrayed you, and you need me alive...

[Toon]: Why should we trust you? You're with Lotin?

[Paper]: Sci and Hornbok can explain... I can't... Not with Lotin around... No, help me out, and make this look convincing.

[He punches Water, making him slide back slightly. Rob jumps in and kicks Paper, but he catches Rob's punch and pushes him back into Water. He ducks to avoid a fire blast from Toon and then gets kicked by Toon, knocking him back. As the fight continues, the rest of the team arrives in the docking bay. The door to the main part of the ship also opens, and Lotin steps out.]

[Lotin]: Heads up, more are--

[He notices that the rest of the team has arrived.]

[Lotin]: on their way...

[Paper]: I told you to stay put...

[Will charges into Paper, knocking him into the wall. He stays down as the recruits turn towards Lotin and begin to fight him. Nick rushes at Lotin and then jumps. He blasts a stream of acid at Lotin, who blocks and then spins to the side and runs way from attacks by Aevan and Ben. He slides under a kick from Rob and then doubles back off the wall and kicks Zon in the face. Brian jumps at Lotin and turns his hands into electric shockers, zapping him. Sci, Bink, and Hornbok run over to Paper, who is still on the ground. They stand across from him, waiting until he gets up. He slowly rises and stops when he sees the three Plumbers standing over him.]

[Sci]: Breaking Lotin out of jail? Something tells me that's the only reason you wanted to be arrested...

[Paper, quietly]: Sci, you don't have to fake it...

[Sci]: Got it...

[Bink]: Fake what?

[Paper stands up.]

[Paper]: I'll explain when we're all back at the Academy...

[He tries to smile, even though he is very weak and tired.]

[Bink]: You look terrible...

[Paper]: I feel terrible...

[Paper turns to Sci and looks at him. Sci punches him in the gut, knocking him to the ground once again. He turns to Hornbok and Bink, nods, and then turns around, but before he can run off, the ship that the team was on explodes, sending the ship that everyone is currently on off in a sideways pattern away from the other ship and the prison. Most of the people in the docking bay are thrown from the ship, but Lotin and Paper manage to hold and get into a corridor of the ship. As the team begins continue to float, the ship zooms off into the distance.]

[Commercial]

[The camera cuts to Aldabarbaria. The ship Lotin and Paper are on arrives in the atmosphere of the planet. The wreckage of the Phantom's Nest can be seen near the castle. The ship lands and the two step out, only to be greeted by Phantress and a slew of Aldabarbarian soldiers.]

 
Aldabarbaria
October 31, 2026, 10:19 AM EDT

[Phantress]: You've escaped... And brought a prisoner?

[Lotin]: Here's the deal... You take him, and I use your soldiers to break my other friends out of their prisons...

[Phantress]: What makes you think that we want him? And why isn't he in chains?

[Lotin]: He knows where the Phantom is...

[Phantress]: Does he?

[Paper]: I do not... Here's my offer... You take me as prisoner, or I'll end this threat of war once and for all...

[Phantress]: And how do you plan to do that?

[Paper]: Polarys...

[There is a flash of white energy as rift opens up between Paper and Phantress. A glowing figure steps out as the rift closes behind her. She looks at Paper and then looks around notices where she is.]

[Polarys]: This is the help you needed, knight?

[Phantress]: The Princess of Pollunia cannot stop me...

[Polarys turns towards Phantress and waves her hands. Phantress stops in place.]

[Lotin]: I see you're very well prepared...

[Paper]: I'm surprised you haven't called foul yet...

[Lotin]: Foul?

[Paper]: I just sprung my trap...

[Lotin]: Oh, I knew something was coming... I was ready for something... This, exactly, was not expected...

[He starts to back away, but Polarys waves her hand and Lotin stops in place.]

[Paper]: You don't have to call me knight...

[Polarys]: You are a Plumber, and thus to the Pollunians you are a knight...

[Paper]: Thanks for the help...

[Polarys]: Any time... May I ask what I was helping with...

[Paper takes off Lotin's power inhibiting collar, which was still on, despite being deactivated.]

[Paper]: He doesn't know it, but these inhibitor collars track brain waves... I know exactly what Lotin has been thinking for the last 12 years... I now know where the Phantom is...

[Polarys]: You cannot release the Phantom...

[Paper]: I've got it under control, but I need one more favor...

[The camera cuts back to Rotolysia. The entire group stands around, shocked at Ahmad's discovery.]

[Paul]: What does that mean, though? How does that change anything?

[Harry]: If Dexis is a Rotolysian... No, that doesn't make sense...

[Chris]: What doesn't...?

[Harry]: Could the Rotolysians be evil? They're protesting the Plumbers because their Ambassador was killed, but what if it was something more? What if they're hiding something?

[Holly]: I think it's just a coincidence? What other evidence is there that the Rotolysians are all evil.

[Figy]: No, Harry's right, think about it... What was the event that started all of these coincidences... The killing of the Rotolysian Ambassador... I think they used that to their advantage in order to make cover up their actions...

[Roy]: I disagree... There's no solid proof...

[Harry]: What else do you want, Roy?

[Dexis, entering]: How about a confession? It's a long-lasting rivalry; a grudge against the Plumbers...

[Ray]: Just who we were waiting for...

[Dexis, jumping down from a higher ledge]: You may have destroyed my robot, but you won't destroy my reputation... or my history...

[Harry]: Are you going to explain or not?

[Dexis]: I could explain... Or I could leave you guessing...

[He laughs.]

[Dexis]: You've got to go back quite a while... The Rotolysians were at war with another planet... It doesn't matter which, but we were losing... We went to the Plumbers for help, but they denied us... We went to our long time allies for help, and they built us a war machine... The deal fell through, and they betrayed us, but we were able to overcome them... And their planet, was destroyed... Our enemy then devastated our planet by taking over our war machine... Again we asked the Plumbers for help, but they said it was not their jurisdiction. Eventually, the war ended, but the grudge we had against the Plumbers for the devastation they allowed never ended. This is our revenge scheme...

[Paul]: Teaming up with the Elite?

[Dexis]: So you decided to read my letters?

[The recruits look at each other for a second.]

[Dexis]: Yes, it was I who gave you the letters; well, Damian gave you your letter...

[He points at Paul.]

[Dexis]: So do you trust each other or not?

[Ray]: I'd say we don't have to answer that...

[His begins to walk towards Dexis.]

[Ray]: And if you were smart, you'd leave...

[Dexis]: Wouldn't you rather fight me? To end this once and for all?

[Roy]: Ray, don't let him make your decision for you...

[Ray]: I wouldn't rather fight you... It's your choice...

[Dexis]: Smart kid... Maybe your friends should trust you...

[He grins and then backs away. Ray runs forward but Dexis has disappeared. He turns around and looks at the rest of his team and then at the destroyed Colossus.]

[Ahmad]: Are we done here?

[Ray]: Yes, and I'd say it was a success, wouldn't you?

[The camera cuts to the remains of the ship after the explosion. Another Plumber's ship arrives, with Relgo, Ivada, and the other Magisters on it. The camera then cuts to the Plumbers' Academy early next morning. All the members of the team are back, with the obvious exceptions of Paper and Sub.]

 
Plumbers' Academy
November 1, 2026, 1:19 AM EDT

[Hornbok]: Ray, debrief, and make it brief...

[Ray]: We destroyed Colossus and discovered very important intellect...

[Hornbok]: Elaborate...

[Paul]: We discovered that Dexis is a Rotolysian...

[Hornbok]: What?

[Ivada]: I knew...

[Hornbok]: And you didn't tell?

[Ivada]: Dexis and I are personal rivals... I thought it was just a coincidence...

[Roy]: It's not. Dexis says the entire series of events that has been unfolding is part of the Rotolysian's revenge scheme on the Plumbers for a war that they lost because they didn't get help from the Plumbers.

[Ivada]: Was this a war fought against Vallion?

[Sci]: Wait, Vallion? Rotolysia fought a war with Vallion...

[Ivada]: Yes... The Rotolysians had their allies from the planet Vivox build them a war machine... But, things, happened and Vivox betrayed Rotolysia; however, the Rotolysians took their war machine and used it to destroy their planet...

[Reg]: So it was the Rotolysians who destroyed Vivox...

[Slick]: You knew that Vivox had been destroyed?

[Toon]: I guess I would have to explain eventually... About two weeks ago, Reg and I went searching for his mother... And we found that her planet, Vivox, had been destroyed, the Vivoserians living on colonies throughout the galaxy... We thought it was insignificant...

[Nick]: I remember you telling me about this... It's clearly not insignificant...

[Ahmad]: No... Wait, I'm still confused, what's the significance of Vallion?

[Sci]: I'll take this one... Vallion is the home planet of Virton, the original Guardian...

[Chris]: Original? Is there a new Guardian?

[Sci]: Yes, Paper...

[Figy]: And what does this Guardian do...

[Sci]: The Guardian is the ancient hero told of in the Solvens Tenebrae Vestibulum, a prophecy book containing all there is to know about Rigon.

[Bink]: But now it appears that the history of Vallion may be deeper than the just the home of the hero...

[Reg]: Hold on, can you describe this Virton?

[Sci]: Purple skinned, muscular, tall, fairly thin...

[Reg]: I know who that is! I mean, I might... I had a vision--

[Sci, surprised]: You've been having them, too?

[Reg]: Yes...

[Sci]: I don't know if it's Virton... I'll have to look into it more...

[Hornbok]: Okay, and do you want to debrief on your mission, Sci...

[Sci]: Paper's a traitor...

[Suddenly, a warp portal opens up in the middle of the meeting room. Surprisingly, the security alarm does not go off.]

[Relgo]: No alarm?

[Paper steps out of the portal as it closes behind him. All the members of the team except for Sci and Hornbok jump up and prepare for a fight. Bink suddenly looks at Sci and sees that he is not prepared for a fight.]

[Bink]: Sci...

[Sci]: Welcome home, Paper...

[Paper looks weak, and he has many cuts and bruises all over.]

[Toon]: I thought you said he was a traitor!? What's going on?

[He notices Paper is holding a detached inhibitor collar.]

[Nick]: And why do you have a inhibitor collar?

[Paper tosses the collar at Hornbok.]

[Paper]: First of all, that's Lotin's inhibitor collar, and second of all I'm not a traitor...

[Sci]: It was all a cover up...

[Will]: Explain, now...

[Paper]: As I'm sure you all know now, the Rotolysians are evil, and the entire ruse Sci, Hornbok, and I created was to help us come to this point... I'm not going to explain what or how, but I will explain why... With some help...

[He takes out a portal generator and opens a portal up. Faceless, the new Rotolysian Ambassador, and two of the old Rotolysian Ambassador step out.]

[Aevan]: Wait, there's two of him...

[Faceless takes off his ID mask, revealing him to actually be Rex, one of the old Ambassador's takes off a mask to become Rocket, and the new Ambassador takes an ID mask to become Ancy. Most of the members of the old team jump up and prepare for a fight again.]

[Rex]: Relax, we're Plumbers now...

[Rocket]: Sci, Paper, and Hornbok needed people to help them in their ruse... We took the roles of the killer, the killed, and the replacement in order to help them.

[Ancy]: Once Paper is in prison, he was going to wait for Lotin to be transferred so that all the events that happened today would unfold...

[Paper]: And they were all successful, I got Lotin's inhibitor collar, which will confirm what you guys already figured out... If you didn't know... Inhibitor collars track brain waves...

[Jack]: Okay, one more question, what about Sub...

[Suddenly, a door opens in the Academy. Sub walks in, with Corona just behind him.]

[Sub]: I helped in the ruse... Paper needed backup and someone to keep contact with the gang of prisoners he was friends with while he was at his trial... Oh, and this is Corona, she's a Plumber who was wrongfully accused of a crime and happened to be in the same prison...

[Corona]: Hello guys...

[Everything is silent for a moment.]

[Ben]: So are we done here?

[Cassie]: I have a question... What comes next?

[Paper]: Once we figure out what Lotin was planning with Dexis... We can stop them and the Rotolysians...

[Sci]: We can figure out what our visions mean...

[Hornbok]: I'd like to make one final point... The Haven... And the temples... What about them?

[Paper]: I forgot all about them...

[Will]: And what about the nanochips? Frost stole a case of them a couple months ago...

[Sci]: There's just always more unanswered questions, aren't there...

[Ivada]: We'll find the answers... I'm sure of it... To the Elite, and the Rotolysians, and the Aldabarbarians... And everything else, but it will take time...

[Paper]: Agreed... Now I'm sure you've heard this a lot lately, but it's time to get some rest...

[Everyone laughs as they begin to go off on their separate ways. The camera cuts back to Aldabarbaria. Polarys is standing, watching over the still motionless Phantress and Lotin. She turns around as Phantress breaks free from the trance. Polarys begins to back up and eventually stops as Lotin appears behind her.]

 
Aldabarbaria
November 1, 2026, 2:56 AM EDT

[Lotin]: Three, two, one...

[Polarys teleports herself away in a flash of white light.]

[Phantress]: You let her get away?

[Lotin]: She's of no use to us now... Wait until the real war begins... Make the next move whenever you are ready... The sooner the better...

[He takes out a small device and opens up a warp portal. He steps into it, but leaves the portal open for a second.]

[Lotin, in the portal]: Don't fail me...

[The portal closes and Phantress scoffs, before turning around and storming off to the castle. The camera cuts to Plumbers Galactic-Command. Sci and Kali are standing on a balcony, overlooking the stars. Kali's arms are wrapped around Sci, lovingly.]

 
Plumbers Galactic-Command
November 1, 2026, 3:01 AM EDT

[Kali]: Are you happy that the ruse is over?

[Sci]: I'm happy that it was successful... Paper took a big risk letting himself get arrested...

[He closes his eyes and envisions the imprisoned figure chained to the wall for a second. His eyes are glowing red when he opens them.]

[Sci, under his breath]: Ygn terns...

[Kali]: Gon turns?

[Sci]: RIGON RETURNS!

[He shakes his head and then his eyes return to normal. He looks into Kali's eyes and begins to cry.]

[Sci]: I thought I was free...

[Kali]: You are... You must be worried, though...

[He starts to calm down and then closes his eyes and kisses Kali on the lips. He breaks away and then hugs Kali tightly as the camera cuts to the castle on Salimore the next afternoon. A recently freed Ra'ol Set stands on the balcony, finishing a speech to his people.]

 
Salimore
November 2, 2026, 3:19 PM EDT

[Ra'ol Set]: Before, I was not with you, but now I am back, and stronger than ever! I promise to you, the Golden Age of Salimore will return, and with it, everyone will be prosperous!

[There are cheers from the crowd as Ra'ol Set backs away into the depths of the castle. He enters the throne room and finds an entire party of evil waiting for him: Lotin, Lucifer, Viper, Blitz, Arthur, Chemestris, Dexis, Damian Walker, Amon Set, Frost and the other ice villains, Dr. Psychobos, an unknown human girl, Thebes, Abbaddon, and another unknown, Salimorian girl.]

[Ra'ol Set]: The floor is yours Lotin?

[Lotin]: Welcome everybody, to a grand party... A party welcoming the return of the Elite... To those well known to others: myself, Ra'ol Set, Lucifer, Viper, Blitz, Arthur, Chemestris... To the most important of our operatives: Dexis, Damian Walker, Amon Set, Frost and his team, to our scientists: Dr. Psychobos and Elena Validus... To our young operatives team Thebes, Abbaddon, and Hathus Set... I welcome you once again... Tonight, we celebrate being together, but this may not be true for long... We in in time split to do our bidding, and we will be successful...

[He pauses to take the moment in.]

[Lotin]: And we will, once again, be Elite.

[The End]
