VTS (19)

Gyula and Fritz

In the country of Zarkovia, Prince Gyula is inside a scientific lab at an ancient castle with his servant, Fritz, arguing over a new weapon. Fritz thinks that it is too dangerous to turn against the rebels, but Gyula says that they forfeited their protection when they turned against the throne. Fritz urges Gyula to settle the rebellion peacefully, but he turns on her. King Xarion arrives and reminds Gyula that he is in charge of the nation. He demands to see the weapon that Gyula was hiding from him. Gyula shows him the frozen body belonging to Dr. Viktor. Gyula tells Xarion that the body is Viktor's and proposes that they restore it to life. Xarion says that if they unleash it, they will destroy the kingdom, and reminds Gyula that he is not king yet. Gyula blames Xarion for his mother's death as Xarion leaves.

Meanwhile, the team is flying over the forest in the Rustbucket 3. Kevin is annoyed because he's missing a chance to get a teleporter pod for the mission of going to Zarkovia and removing a weapon of mass destruction. Although he becomes interested when Ben tells him that the weapon is Dr. Viktor, whose powers Kevin absorbed during his mutation. The king of Zarkovia has asked the team for their help, they are attacked suddenly by three missiles.

Ultimate Echo Echo chasing the missiles

Ben jumps out of the Rustbucket 3 and tries to transform into Jetray, but he transforms into Echo Echo instead. Echo Echo manages to destroy the missiles, but more missiles arrive. The Rustbucket 3 fly away to safety and Echo Echo transforms into Ultimate Echo Echo before pursuing and destroying the missiles. However, one of the missiles hits the Rustbucket 3, forcing it to land.

The team is immediately surrounded by Zarkovian soldiers. Gyula arrives and arrests them and claims the Rustbucket 3. Ultimate Echo Echo lands on the ground and transforms back into Ben. Xarion arrives and orders the soldiers to stand down. Inside the castle, Xarion explains that Gyula is the only insurgent that he fears. The team goes downstairs. Gwen reveals that there are security lasers. Ben transforms into Big Chill and phases through and deactivates them. He reveals Viktor's frozen body. Kevin insists that Viktor was alive when he placed him in the Null Void. Suddenly, the soldiers arrive and attack the team. Kevin damages a console and Viktor starts to thaw. Big Chill tries to keep him frozen but fails. Kevin realizes that the military is wearing mind-control headsets. Viktor starts to come to life and breaks free of the ice.

Ultimate Big Chill vs. Dr. Viktor

Gyula arrives and explains that he is controlling Viktor's body. Kevin attacks Viktor but is defeated. Viktor defeats Gwen as well. Big Chill evolves into Ultimate Big Chill and freezes soldiers and tries to freeze Viktor, but he fails. Viktor knocks him out and he transforms back into Big Chill and then Ben. The team and Xarion are chained up by Gyula in a dungeon. Gyula has usurped Xarion's throne with Viktor. Gwen comes to and finds everyone chained up. Despite her power dampening headband, she is able to free Xarion. Xarion frees the unconscious Ben and drags him away, intending to complete his ultimate plan.

Xarion chains Ben up in the laboratory next to Viktor and activates the Ultimatrix. Xarion transforms Ben into Chromastone, then Wildmutt, and then Goop. He then transforms Goop into Ampfibian and settles on the transformation. Xarion wears a headband and uses Ampfibian's electricity in order to activate his and Viktor's headbands. Gyula and Fritz arrive and Gyula disconnects Viktor from the machine, which causes Xarion to collapse. Ampfibian transforms back into Ben and Xarion is dead. Gyula declares himself ruler, but Viktor, who is controlled by Xarion, awakens.

Heatblast returns

Viktor attacks Gyula and orders for him to arrested. He says that Gyula will be charged with treason. Outside, the rebels attack Viktor. Viktor uses his powers and destroys tanks and doesn't feel their shots. The rebels flee before him. Just then, Heatblast arrives and attacks Viktor. Kevin and Gwen attack as well, but Viktor knocks them both out. Heatblast flies to them and battles with Viktor. Viktor picks up a tank and Heatblast melts it. Gwen casts a spell that freezes the molten metal, which traps Viktor. The army and Gyula surround the team and Heatblast transforms back into Ben. Ben wants to bring Viktor back into the Null Void, but Kevin says that Plumbers can only arrest aliens.

Gyula intends to hang Viktor and set his soldiers on the rebels. Ben destroys Gyula's remote control, freeing the soldiers. The team walks away as Viktor shouts threats after them and says that he wants vengeance.
