Onboard Black Manta's sub in the Gulf of Mexico, an imprisoned Lagoon Boy demands to know how Aqualad could have fallen so low. Black Manta comes in and tells his son to send Lagoon Boy along while he has other duties with him. Aqualad agrees and injects Lagoon Boy with a sedative and places him in a transport capsule.

Episode Quotes
Icicle Jr.: I hear he switched sides because of some girl. Which I totally get. If, you know, it's the right girl.
Tuppence Terror: Step back, Junior. You're giving me the chills.
Icicle Jr.: But in a good way, right, babe?

Scarab: The advantage is ours. Recommended tactic: evisceration.
Blue Beetle: Or, since they outnumber us 4 to 2, we could recommend tactic strategic retreat.

Nightwing: Aqualad! You'll regret this!
Aqualad: (punching him) I believe I have outgrown the name "Aqualad" as well as anything resembling regret.
