Synopsis for "Family Feud"

Daphne and Rainmaker escape the dungeon with Sarah disguising herself as a Coda. Outside, Jim McArthur reluctantly follows Fairchild into the Coda Citadel.  Offshore, Burnout and the pirates sail toward the island, preparing to invade.  McArthur and Fairchild watch from above as Majestrix Andromache performs the Blood Ritual, allowing Coda initiates to drink her blood and so become immortal.  McArthur realizes it is she who is the legendary “fountain of youth” on the island while Caitlin sees that the Coda are preparing Grunge as a human sacrifice.  Just then, the pirates burst into the Citadel.  As the Coda engage them, Fairchild frees Grunge, and Rainmaker saves Andromache from a pirate’s sword.  The Pirate King is about to shoot her when his daughter steps between them.  Daphne begs Andromache for her freedom.  As the Majestrix owes Rainmaker for saving her life, Sarah suggests trading her life for Daphne’s freedom, and Andromache agrees. Later, as Gen 13 flies away, Lucius reveals to Daphne that he knew Alex Fairchild years earlier.  When she asks him why he didn’t tell Caitlin, he explains that he promised to keep Alex’s whereabouts a secret.

Synopsis for "Robot Ruckus, Part 3"

Jim Lee blames artist Tom McWeeney for ruining Image Comics and says he must be found and destroyed.  Meanwhile, Grunge saves Burnout by bonding with silly putty and cushioning his fall. The giant robot smashes Grunge and then tosses him into a Home Depot where he bonds with fertilizer.  Freefall has an idea and works with Fairchild to push Grunge’s fertilizer form into the robot’s mouth.  This makes the robot vomit him out and then fall unconscious. Caitlin then unmasks the robot as Maul from the WildC.A.T.s. and claims he was terrorizing the town as part of a real estate scam.  Maul comes to and claims he stepped on a thumb tack on the way to a costume party. Later, the WildC.A.T.s arrive to pick up Maul and thank Gen 13 for their help by giving them a box of WildC.A.T.s action figures.
