Just as The Cleaner is about to drop off the Venture team to safety, Brock notices that even though he asked Hank to call the Cleaner to help, he never actually did. Just then, Molotov shows up saying she was the one that called him to help Brock out. Just then, the Monarch shows up after finding their location from H.E.L.P.eR. and General Treister contacts Brock on his wrist watch as well. Brock schedules for them all to meet at the Venture compound at dawn. Once there, Brock uses Treister and Monarch’s unawareness of each other to pit them against each other at the compound which results in huge battle between the two factions outside. Meanwhile Sgt. Hatred, who spent the past couple days at the Venture compound trying to kill himself after his wife left him, leads a group of Hank and Dean’s clones out to the battle after Hank suggests it. After seeing Sgt. Hatred, Brock rushes out to turn himself in to the OSI, but Treister says that he didn’t plan on arresting him, and that the OSI never sent the three assassins after him and the Ventures. After the messy ordeal, Brock decides he is quitting the OSI and resigning his role as bodyguard of the Venture family. As he plans to leave in the Monarchmobile which H.E.L.P.eR. drove onto the field, the explosives on H.E.L.P.eR.’s back planted by the Monarch explode, killing henchman No. 24. It is revealed that Molotov set up the entire situation, making Brock believe the three assassins were sent in by the OSI while they were actually sent by her; she was using Brock to eliminate her top competition. Molotov’s group of female assassins, The Blackhearts, is now the top assassin organization in the world. One of them, Col. Hunter Gathers, toasts Brock.
