Synopsis for "Having a Wild Weekend (Part 3) - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"
Captain Britain awakes to find himself swimming in some kind of alcohol. He soars from the sea, over a beach littered with empty bottles. He begins to realise just who could be responsible for this, but he finds the foliage too thick on the desert island and so is forced to walk inland. As he walks, two figures wing on vines towards him and attack. They’re both former incarnations of himself! At first, he thinks he might be hallucinating from the alcohol, but as they grab him, he realises they are quite real after all…
Kitty phases through the wall to find herself in a control room of some kind. It’s very complex, and though she initially has trouble working it out, she soon realises which circuits to destroy. She then phases back into the complex to see what she has achieved.
Captain Britain’s doppelgangers suddenly drop to the ground as they are struck from behind. His saviour announces herself as Nellie Day, and throws herself into his arms. Her grandmother shouts at her to stop, but offers Captain Britain a lift into the town, called Blueberry, anyway. The Captain is confused, as this farmland has just appeared from nowhere. But he gets in the truck anyway, before being knocked out of the truck by Nellie’s jealous boyfriend. He finds himself at the start of a road made of yellow bricks, and becomes convinced he is going mad as a scarecrow gives him directions.
Eventually, he finds his way into Blueberry. He asks the nearest local for answers, and is directed to the Saloon bar. Inside, he orders a Perrier and sits at the nearest table, telling them he just wants to be left alone for a bit. Looking at him strapped into their virtual reality machine, the Loonies laugh.

Synopsis for "Panther's Quest (Part 21) - Losing Control"
Out in the fields, a group of soldiers searching for Black Panther come across his aircraft as one of the soldiers falls through a mound of hay, disguising the aircraft underneath. They attack the windows, trying desperately to break the glass, but it won’t give way. From the forest nearby, Black Panther and Zanti watch. Black Panther explains the events to him. The Magistrate had been watching his every move, and had been expecting him at every place he showed up. T’Challa quickly came to the conclusion that the Magistrate had his mother, after hearing him use the name of his father, T’Chaka, a name not known outside Wakanda. But he still doesn’t know why he’s doing this. As they get towards the edge of the forest, he tells Zanti to stay back. Black Panther crawls through the long grass, before leaping onto the wing of his sonar glider and attacking the soldiers. He manages to get into the cockpit, and the sonar glider starts to rise. But as the soldiers open fire, Zanti dashes from the clearing, shouting at them to stop. But he is gunned down as the Sonar Glider rises into the sky…

Synopsis for "Rise and Shine (Part 8) - The Maze"
In the replica radiio city music hall, Mako orders his men to be ready for an attack at any moment. As Mako switches his attention to the monitors, he sees Coldblood arrive and step from his car. He tells his assistant, Schirmer that Coldblood must be coming for Gina, his sense of duty still strong.
Outside, the computer still argues that rescuing her is illogical, but Coldblood overrules it. As he walks towards the buildings, he finds a short priest giving a sermon. Suddenly, the image changes, showing a small robot, and his computer starts to warn him, but not before the robot fires a laser at him. He opens fire, and as the robot falls, he sees a child in its place. The computer explains this is why it didn’t want to return, as within Mako’s broadcast range, the computer, though free from his control, is susceptible to Mako broadcasting images directly into the computer, and therefore Coldblood.
Inside the complex, the robots guarding Gina open fire as one of Mako’s assistants, Charles, charges through the door to rescue her. As he is stunned with energy pulses, one of the beams severs the rope she is tied with, and she manages to dash from the room. Schirmer tells Mako of this, but Mako says that this is all part of the plan.
Outside, the computer tells Coldblood that everything it says is now a lie. Coldblood asks wryly if that is also a lie. Ahead of him, he sees 3 doors. The computer tells him to avoid side doors, which means he needs a centre door. But Coldblood opens fire on the doors, finding all of them were traps. Through the rubble of the doors, he finds Gina again. However, he thinks she’s a robot, although she says he isn’t. His vision changes as the computer receives new information…
