After the battle with Ren, Marucho is refreshed and even constructs a speech program for the clone Akwimos. Fabia worries that Dan and the others do not fully trust her as they were easily tricked by Ren. Dan assures her that they completely trust her after seeing how angry she got about Bakugan being used for war. Relieved, Fabia gives Shun, Marucho and Jake the real Hawktor, Akwimos and Coredem. Meanwhile, Ren leads the other Gundalians to kidnapped two brawlers named Taylor and Casey. The two are taken back to Gundalia where they are brainwashed into fighting against the Neathians.

After winning their respective battles and freeing Taylor and Casey from the Gundalians' control, they are all forced out of BI. Ren reveals that he is now in sole control of BI.
