Synopsis for "Part Eight: Would it be Okay with The Management if We Check Out Early?"
Booster, takes charge and has Skeets interface with the Nest’s computers while he orders Rocket Red (Gavril) to stall the Checkmate guards. Gavril launches into a virtuoso performance of communist rhetoric, but it is in vain as Skeet’s scan reveals that the Nest has no record of Max’s presence. Without that trace their justification for breaking into Checkmate evaporates and they are suddenly very vulnerable. Ice freezes the floor and the JLI barrel out of the control room whilst the guards are skidding around. They make it into the corridor, but can’t use their powers because they need to maintain their cover story as dissident Rocket Reds.
The only person with functioning weaponry is the real Rocket Red, but a Checkmate agent attaches a “feedback clamp” to his armour. Gavril screams in pain as the clamp tries use an electrical attack to disable his armour. Fire changes to her flame form to destroying the clamp, but in doing so she reveals their identities to Checkmate. With their cover blown Booster signals to Captain Atom to provide an escape route. He blows a hole through the Castle to the JLI’s location and they escape through it. Checkmate’s Black King is all for pursing them, but Alton Janus, the new White King, convinces him that it’d be better for Checkmate if they hushed up the entire affair.
The JLI make for the decommissioned JLI embassy in Potsdam, Germany. Ice is getting near the end of her tether and is nearly in tears when she tells Beetle and Atom that she just wants to go home. Fire is with Gavril. He was pretty beaten up by Checkmate’s weapon, but he impressed Fire and his team-mates with his fortitude. Booster tries talking to Fire about the failed operation, but she claims that she’s okay. She leaves to set up the computer lab, but is surprised to find Max waiting for her.
