Doctor Insano gleefully rambles about his plans for world domination over speakerphone as he pilots the giant robot Neutro. Linkara orders Nimue to deploy Neurto’s shutdown sequence, but Nimue says the system is not responding. Linkara asks how Insano was able to get control of Neutro when Nimue was supposed to be monitoring the robot. Nimue explains that she’s been extremely overtaxed over the last year thanks to random malfunctions and had to relax some security measures in order to stay functional. Linksano says that Insano has probably been planning this ever since he heard that Linkara had lost his magic. Linkara orders Nimue to fire on Neutro, but Insano has apparently given Neutro an energy shield and is undamaged. Nimue can’t beam Linkara into the robot thanks to the energy shield, and they can’t get backup from Angry Joe as he’s currently orbiting the other side of the planet. Linksano claims he can get through the energy shield in less than an hour and Linkara tells him to do it.
Later, Linksano tells Linkara that he’s managed to weaken the energy shield and can teleport one person and one small object into Neutro. This time, Linkara takes a Cybermat with him, and sets it loose inside the robot. Linkara confronts Insano in the control room, but Insano puts a force field over the door. Linkara tries to convince Insano that ruling the world isn’t worth it and he can have everything he wants with Linkara’s holodeck (like he did with Linksano), but Insano’s mind is set on real world domination. Just then Neutro’s power fails thanks to the Cybermat, and the force field disappears. Insano attacks Linkara and Linkara orders Nimue to beam them to his apartment.
In Linkara’s apartment, Insano dons a pair of techno gloves that knock Linkara back with incredible force. Linkara realizes that when Insano took off with the Nostalgia Critic’s house, he got all the tech that was onboard, including the power-enhancing energy gloves that Jesuotaku invented. Linkara tries firing with the Magic Gun but Insano simply blocks it with his gloves. Linkara tries to take Insano head on but the gloves prove to too powerful. Linkara morphs into White Ranger Zeo Linkara and the two begin to fight in earnest, but they’re interrupted when Linkara is shot down by Jaeris.
Jaeris angrily tells Linkara that thanks to him, he can never go home and save his world. Linkara says he’s learned about Jaeris’ mission and he’s sorry for what he’s done. He realizes he made a horrible mistake, but he claims to have the resources to help get Jaeris back home. Insano says that he doesn’t know what’s going on, but he could totally be more help than Linkara and urges Jaeris to join him. Linkara says he wants to help Jaeris with his mission and while he can’t promise success, he’ll do everything in his power to make it happen. Linkara offers Jaeris the Magic Gun, telling him to take it and the ship if that’s what it takes to free his world.
Jaeris silently considers this for a moment before turning his gun on Insano, who lashes out at the two of them with his gloves. Linkara tries to put a force field around Insano but Insano simply punches through it. Linkara and Jaeris try to fight Insano but he easily knocks them back. Linkara has Jaeris distract Insano with a barrage of gunfire while he speaks directly to Margaret. He says that the last time they spoke, she said that he was holding back her real power, and he asks her to show it now. Suddenly she’s at his side. She give him the power to charge up the Magic Gun and fire a powerful blast at Insano that knocks him down. Linkara tells Nimue to beam Insano out of there and she does so. Jaeris asks why they didn’t do that in the first place, and Nimue says that she couldn’t get a lock on him until his gloves were disabled.
Linkara says he wasn’t lying before; he wants to use Comicron-1’s resources to help Jaeris get home and save his world. Jaeris asks why Linkara is helping him after everything he’s done to Linkara. Linkara offers his hand and says it’s because he was wrong about Jaeris; he doesn’t think he’s an enemy, he think he’s a friend. Jaeris doesn’t take Linkara’s hand, saying that he isn’t ready to call him a friend yet. He wouldn’t have to ask for help if Linkara hadn’t destroyed the pocketwatch in the first place.
Later, Spoony is hanging out with Linkara and apologizes for Insano. He asks if Linkara’s really going to help Jaeris, and Linkara says that Linksano is currently working on finding the coordinates of Jaeris’ universe, as apparently the computer in Jaeris’ ship is different than Comicron-1’s. Spoony asks if he can really trust Jaeris but Linkara thinks it says a lot that Jaeris didn’t just take the Magic Gun and leave him to Insano. Spoony leaves the room to order pizza and Linkara looks up to see Margaret. He asks her if her showing up like this is going to be a regular thing and she says no - there are rules to the forces of magic that Linkara’s playing with, and he’s going to need to learn them for facing challenges in the future.
Meanwhile, on Comicron-1, Nimue says to herself that over the past year, she has dealt with massive critical failures that have interfered with normal operations, and that they are far too numerous and in specific areas for it to merely be a malfunction. She begins to do a self-diagnostic to determine the problem, but suddenly her electronics spark and frizzle and she falls silent. After a moment, her green light turns red as she says in a strange voice, “Self-diagnostic…canceled.”
