Plot in Detail

The episode starts out with Tom and Kaz walking on the Iron Pillar to scan the location for their decks. After they scanned the location, they heard a cry for help. It turns out it was Xaerv, whom was tricked by Kristella to think he was trapped in a magic circle and that his Towegg was dysfunctional as a result of her "powers" (when really it was the effect of the location). The two then went to set Xaerv "free." Meanwhile, Kristella brought Pyrithion to the captured Xaerv in exchange for a scan, however Pyrithion told her "the deal's off." Kristella then took his binoculars and saw that Tom and Kaz had freed Xaerv. She then swore that she would make them pay.

Back in Chaotic, Klay attempted to con a newcomer by stealing his cards. Thankfully, Tom stepped into to explain to the new player that Klay was tricking him. Klay then got angry and challenged Tom to a match, and called him Major Wimp at the same time. At the same moment, Kristella listened in and realized her opportunity to get back at the two. Tom and Kaz were then planning their strategy in the match against Klay. However, Kristella listened in on the two as they made their plans. Kristella then went to see Klay just before he entered the battledrome where the match was held. She then told Klay of Tom's game plan and how to counter it. The match started with Tom as Maxxor against Klay's Barrath Beyond. Although, Tom expected Klay to attack one of his water creatures after that battle, Klay chose to attack Maxxor instead. Klay continued to sick one creature after another on Maxxor, and each of which was defeat. Afterwards, it was down to Klay's last creature, Magmon, who managed to defeat Maxxor with the help of the Lava Pond location effects.

Tom thought he still had an advantage until Klay revealed that he had given Magmon a Flux Bauble, which changes the location to the next selected location in his location deck, which happens to be all Lava Ponds for this match. The tables were then turned as Klay picked off his water creatures, weakened by the effects of the Lava Pond. During the battle as Owis, Tom brought back his Song of Future Sight and used it to lock the locations for the next two turns before Owis was defeated. The location Tom selected before battling as his last creature, Mezzmar, was the Iron Pillar. At first Klay tried to use his battlegear to change the location, however the Iron Pillar prevented the Flux Bauble from functioning. Tom as Mezzmar then attacked Magmon wth Rip tide.knocking him off the platform and was then hanging on a pipe. Magmon then gave Mezzmar the same treatment by melting the platform with a Lavalanche, thus both were hanging above their doom. Magmon proceeded to melt the ladder from which Mezzmar was hanging from. However, Mezzmar fired a Sludge Gush at Magmon's hand, causing him to slide off the pipe and fall to his doom. The matched then ended with Tom as the winner. Tom then told Kaz of how Klay came close to beating him. Kaz then told Tom that they were bugged by Kristella and told the plan to Klay. Meanwhile, Klay scolded Kristella for the failure, while Kristella told Klay that it was "a temporary setback" and said that "this is the beginning of a perfectly nasty friendship."
