View Full Version : So who is the target?


General Hawk

For folks who have been paying attention, Baroness apparently hires Major Bludd next week for an assassination mission.

Who do you think is the target?

Someone we know? Someone we don't?

Really can't wait to see what Bludd looks like.

Maybe it could be the "commander". She appears to be a high ranking official in Cobra Industries. Maybe she's trying to knock off the top guy and take over power.

I say Hawk too.

I really like Resolute so far! Wish they were doing 2 episodes per week.

The epileptic trees are out in force already. :D

It's a good sign though, as wild mass guessing means people are interested.

I'd say Hawk is a pretty safe bet, but it could also just be some random person that the Joes hear about and try to protect without getting caught.

Besides, eye-patch vs eye-patch just looks too obvious. I'm more curious about what Maj. Bludd will actually look and sound like.

Hey general Hawk, i posted in the other thread about msn updating their episode 6 description.Sounds interesting.

G.I. Joe Renegades - 'Homecoming: Part 1' Episode Info - MSN TV (http://tv.msn.com/tv/episode.aspx?episode=d4201b57-d7e4-48b6-80cc-3171ef9103dd)

Mindbender he really brought too much attention to springfield. She wanted to bomb them back to the stone ages.

I'm tempted to say Hawk. However, it may be something as simple as a political figure, or a reporter who's been poking their nose in their business after the Springfield incident. You never know with Cobra...

If it does turn out to be Hawk, he will probably see what the Renegades are up against, convinced they were set up and give them his support.

Interesting theory, but I don't see CC sanctioning that when he's invested so much in Mindbender's research. Maybe behind his back...

I'm going to call it right now and say it's not Hawk.

Cobra would want the army hunting the Joes down as well, and taking out the extremely competent guy in charge would be counterproductive unless the Joes actually did show him some kind of hard evidence and Cobra found out. I doubt that would happen so soon though, as the whole point of the series is to have as many people as possible out to get the heroes.

That's kind of what I was thinking. My first thought was General Hawk, but then I was wondering the same thing. If he's after the Joes, then why go after him?

Unless... the Baroness puts a bullseye on his back and wants to frame the Joes for it?

Hmmm...

I agree, Hawk is the only one that makes any sense at this point. Brownie points for the Renegades!

Wouldn't it be logical for the Baroness to send Bludd on the trail of Duke and the others?

Perhaps his main target is Scarlett? She is the one who seems to have dug up the most dirt on COBRA. Take her out, what do they have?

Hawk

Or Flint.

Only logical choices.

She tries to make it look like it was the "renegades".

I think it's one of those two because they are suspicious of Cobra Industries and the Baroness.

I think Major Blood will try and kill an important civilian like a politician or something, and yah... then they are going to try and blame the whole thing on the Joes... again. LOL.

Naw, that's why I think it'll be Flint or Hawk.

A politician wouldn't make sense for the Renegades to hit. There's no connection of them to a political agenda. They're only wanted for the attack and the 1 death at Cobra Industries (which is Weems). It's a stretch to go for a politician.

But it makes sense for the Renegades to want to take out one of the two officers that are in charge of hunting them down.

If it were up to me I'd be sending in Bludd to make sure Ripcord didn't survive, heh.


From what i've read here I like the idea of Scarlett being the target. It's a lot likelier that it will be Hawk though.

Bludd's target is the guy at Hasbro that canceled the 25th wave 5 vehicles.

The Comander realy wanted those Stinger's and Arctic Hiss tanks.

I say it's someone we don't know and it will introduce us and the "Joes" to the new character. a 2-for-1 introduction episode. that being said... if he tries to assassinate Scarlett because of her being nosy... that also makes sense.

My money is on a Senator\Governor\Congress who is suspicious of Cobra. I'm sure that there are a few, Cobra has their hands in everything.

What if the target is the figure-head of Cobra industries? You know, the holographic public face of Cobra that the Commander plays to the public. Bludd tries to "kill" the leader of Cobra Industries as a frame up of Duke and the Renegades to allow Cobra to be more open in there efforts to "protect" the public.

Duke. The episode guide says so.

MFJayman
12-02-2010, 03:16 PM
Based on the Hub's episode 3 promo General Hawk posted, I was assuming the target would be that scientist-looking British guy they show. Thought maybe he was a Cobra defector with links to Scarlett.

But if the episode guide says Duke, well, alright.

Gen Abernathy or Major Heldago



... or maybe Snake Eyes.

Major Heldago, wasn't he the one who asked for more money from the Baroness? Guessing here since I've only seen clips on-line....

i think he was reaching with that post.

im still guessing Abernathy, Heldago, or for some reason Snake Eyes... why SE, IDK. maybe because in episodes 4-5 we see the Arashikage connection, Jinx gets kidnapped, etc... but SE would be a long shot.

thinking in terms of story arc, i would guess the upper ranked General or Major would be targeted.

this way Hawk decides to band up with the Renegades and go after Cobra.

Well hidalgo is dead, and Baroness knows it. Likely that will get pinned on the joes, too. So I doubt she'd take a hit out on him. HOWEVER, whoever the target is. Either the nerdy guy from that still, or Hawk, I bet she's going to try and make it look like it was the joes again.

I got no idea how it's spelled. lol I just know that he's dead, and Baroness knows it, so he won't be the target.

MFJayman
12-03-2010, 02:16 PM
I suppose if the target is the British scientist, and the Joes try to rescue him but he gets killed nonetheless, the Joes could be charged with the death. Even if they save him, the Joes could still perhaps be charged with kidnapping or something. Right?

My money is on Scarlett. Two things that make it play that way to me:

1. The scene with Hawk at the Cobra Industries when the Baroness spies on Hawk from the window and tells the people on the other side of the comm system to block all communication, AFTER she sees that it's Scarlett on the communicator for him.

2. She says to contact Major Bludd after the escaping Joes pass her in Flint's jeep.

I don't remember her mentioning Bludd specifically, but in re-watching the episodes, it certainly seems like it might be the Joes she's calling a contract on. Her final speech is with Cobra Commander, and he tells her to deal with the "Renegade Soldiers"...

Yeah, how are the Joes gonna explain that whole thing if they're caught. "I swear sir, we were riding in back and suddenly Hidalgo got vaporized! No sir, we didn't kill him, dump the body and steal the truck, he was VAPORIZED, I swear!" It's gonna be a hard sell.

True, but no body no crime. So they'll be "suspects". If they frame them for an assassination that's a whole different ballgame. It's going to be pretty hard to find a place to hide then. You gotta figure, much like Wal-Mart, I'm sure Cobra Industries have their detractors. The Springfield locals didn't seem too happy with them. However, once the media starts putting out there that they are suspected in the disappearance of a military officer, that will make people alot less likely to take them in. Add to that the assassination, or attempted assassination of whoever the target is, if the Baroness tries to spin it that way, and they are going to find it very hard to find a port in the storm. Should make for some killer storytelling.

Man, these Joes are really gonna be no match for Cobra, early on. Look at all the crimes they have already got the Joes pinned with, or suspected of committing. Just in 2 episodes. And of course they'll find some way to spin any assassination or attempted assassination on the Joes next episode, like you said. It is going to be a damn hard climb out of the hole for them. At least I hope.
