Max wakes up in a cage somewhere, and finds Lizard Man in the cage next to her. She talks to him, and realizes that he's suffering from the lack of sun. Max kills a bug in her cage by stomping on it, and then offers it to Lizard Man, who uses his tongue to snap it right up. Blackie and some goons walk into the tent. Max refers to Blackie as "the new bad guy in [her] life," and says she misses "the old bad guys already." Max banters until Blackie asks her if she's heard of junk DNA. Max informs him (and us) that it's DNA that doesn't serve a purpose, but everyone has some. Blackie informs Max that she doesn't have any junk DNA. Every pair in her DNA is "coded for some specific purpose," but they don't know what the purpose is. Max thinks that the purpose is to "kick ass, mostly." Blackie says ominously that they'll find out the purpose soon, and leaves.
The truck full of soldiers drives down the road. Ralph is upset that they left Max behind. Zero points out that Max gave them an order. Bugler points out, with the clichéd wisdom of a child, that Max said they don't need to take orders anymore. The other soldiers all agree that they should go back, so Zero pulls a U-turn and heads back. Meanwhile, Alec is cruising around in a sweet vintage convertible, listening to some tunes. He sees the truck heading back, and yells at them that they're going the wrong way.
Back at temporary HQ, a techie goon starts sending out the rendezvous signal again. Max's friends creep into the perimeter of the compound and scope things out. Alec shows up behind them and finds out that Max got captured while saving the others. The soldiers take out a security goon and then cut power to the camp. Blackie orders the signal to keep broadcasting while he finds out what's going on. The soldiers swarm into the camp and take out more goons. Alec finds Max and unlocks her cage after some banter. Max wants Lizard Man to be rescued too, and Alec does it, after some complaints. Lizard Man takes off. Alec wants to follow suit, but Max says that they need to shut down the signal first. Alec and Max change the signal. Blackie barks some orders over his walkie-talkie. A goon notes that the signal now tells the soldiers to "scatter and go underground." Blackie orders the satellite disabled immediately. Max realizes that the signal has been transmitted enough, so Alec shoots out the transmitter. Lizard Man shows up too, and starts walking towards Max and Alec. Blackie pulls out a gun and shoots Lizard Man dead, so Max and Alec take off. In his frustration at losing Max yet again, Blackie pumps another bullet into the now-dead Lizard Man. So long, Lizard Man!
