Synopsis for "Stinging Tide, Part 2"

Arthur investigates a supposed Scorpio base beneath Antarctica after learning its location from queen Nuada Silverhand who used her psychometric powers to find it. As Aquaman and the Sea Devils go inside the apparent base, a failsafe activates resulting in the activation of a huge robot. Judy using a console of the Scorpio facility learns that the automaton is called "Torpedoman" and is virtually unstoppable, Scorpio had caged it there in order to use it as a potential weapon in future after being unable to stop it.

Arthur and his group learn that Torpedoman is going after pure-blood Atlanteans and the closest place for that is Ungakhan base, an outpost of scientists. The team is unable to stop it and Aquaman breaks his arm while trying to punch it, though it doesn't try to fight back. Finding an anchor, Arthur chains it to his arm to use as a weapon but it has no effect on the Torpedoman. He reaches out to the scientists of the base to prepare whatever weapons they can against the machine, but the Torpedoman isn't harmed by anything they use.

Judy however figures out that they can short Torpedoman's analog system by plying the seals between its moving parts. Using his high-powered hypodermic, Dorrance is able to break the Torpedoman's seals and short it out before it attacks the base. Judy however notices that its sending data as a last measure, probably to Scorpio, and is talking about someone named "Number One".

At the Scorpio base, its revealed that Scorpio deliberately allowed Nuada to uncover their Antartic site. A Scorpio member states that things are going as planned with Aquaman nearly losing his battles shaking the faith of his own council and that of other kingdoms in him.
