The group dismisses Charlie’s idea to get Kong to help them defeat the Sea Monster. Charlie wants to bait the ape with a necklace he’s obsessed with. He’s desperate; he doesn’t want his best friend, Mike, to die. Mike’s health is deteriorating rapidly.

Who helps Charlie on his mission to bait Kong?

Annie decides to join Charlie on his mission, accompanied by Dog. Charlie’s father wishes him luck. Annie and Charlie travel to Kong’s lair. The towering Kong looms over them. They grab Kong’s favorite necklace and storm off on Dog, baiting Kong to chase them.

Charlie’s plan seemingly pays off as Kong is taken to near the sea. However, the others notice Charlie no longer rides with Annie and Dog.

Does Kong fight the Sea Monster?

Annie stops and holds the necklace up to Kong, which stops the creature in its tracks. Annie throws the necklace on the floor. The Sea Monster then appears, instantly attacking Kong, who grapples with it.

The Sea Monster flings Kong with ease. Meanwhile, Cap tries to find Charlie in the jungle, but he ends up fighting a creature. Mike helps him defeat it before collapsing.

Meanwhile, Charlie is trapped in the jungle, hanging from a tree. Tribe members surround him, telling Charlie he’ll suffer for what he did to Kong.
