Sun Wukong and Blake Belladonna run from Roman Torchwick who chases them using an Atlesian Paladin-290. As they go, Sun tells Blake he'll buy her time to escape and persuades her to go by saying he'll be fast enough. He confronts Roman using his clones which the latter finds amusing. Sun tells him he'll deliver payback.

Meanwhile, Yang Xiao Long and Neptune Vasilias try calling Blake, who fill them in on the situation. They decide to head off to find their friends.

Sun fights Roman who mocks him over his so-called payback, and Sun tells him it's all part of the plan. Roman demonstrates the Paladin's speed and hits Sun, condescendingly saying his efforts are wasted.

Just then, Neptune launches an electrical attack on Roman to defend Sun, angrily asking Roman what he's doing to his friend. Roman, however is unthreatened and taunts Neptune. Sun gets up, obviously injured, while Roman uses the Paladin to attack him, only to discover it was a clone and the real Sun had gotten on top of a water tower.

Sun destroys the water tower and Neptune yells at him that he's afraid of water. Nonetheless, he electrocutes the water as it pours on top of Roman and the Paladin. When the smoke clears, it appears the attack was useless and Roman grabs one of Sun's clones before revealing he knows where Sun really is.

Suddenly, Freezerburn is initiated and Roman is confused as to why the Paladin cannot detect the attackers. He realizes it was all part of Neptune and Sun's plan to fry the machine's sensors with their attack. Team RWBY appears and thanks Sun and Neptune for leading Roman to them.
