Plot

The episode begins with H.E.A.T. and Godzilla chasing a Mutant Jellyfish while leaving the sick Mendel Craven at headquarters. Godzilla engages the Jellyfish and a freak storm overtakes their ship. After regaining control, the team notices that Godzilla and the mutation are missing and begin to search for them. Elsie Chapman suggests that Godzilla went home without them, and they head back to headquarters, only to find it in severe disrepair. They search it, but find nothing and decide to go into the city. They find it ruins and Randy Hernandez remarks that someone has "been playing dominoes with the World Trade Center". They are ten attacked by a D.R.A.G.M.A., which they narrowly escape before deciding to head for the shore. AS they explore the deserted city they pass many futuristic cars and discover a movie theater playing Ghostbusters 10 and Elsie suggests that they may be in the future. The D.R.A.G.M.A. returns and they are saved by a boy who leads them to a stronghold in the subway system where they are met with a time-hardened Mendel Craven. He explains that they all disappeared chasing the Mutant Jellyfish, but only Godzilla returned. He reveals that the year they have arrived in is 18 A.D. (After D.R.A.G.M.A.), or 2022. He then reveals that Godzilla dies saving thousands of lives battling the D.R.A.G.M.A.s. In a bit of fan-service, the boy who saved their lives is revealed to be the son of Victor "Animal" Palotti and his wife. The reunited H.E.A.T. then takes on some D.R.A.G.M.A.s, but are forced back inside the base by the sheer numbers. They are then met with Anthony Hicks, now outfitted with a cybernetic arm, whith whom they decide to return to the past through the same storm that brought them here to keep the creator of the D.R.A.G.M.A.s, Dr. Jonathan Insley from creating them in the first place. As they approach the storm they notice a D.R.A.G.M.A. following them, but it is shot down by lightning. they then find themselves back in between Godzilla and the Mutant Jellyfish. Godzilla quickly defeats it and they head back to headquarters where they find Insley's laboratory where he has already created several D.R.A.G.M.A.s, which he releases on the team. They discover that the infant D.R.A.G.M.A.s' exoskeletons aren't fully developed and they take advantage of this by blasting them with the weapons they took from the future before Godzilla come in and begins to destroy the lab. Dr. Insley and the team exit safely, and Nick assures the doctor that he has saved the world.
