What Comes Around Goes Around

On board the Dark Legion's battle cruiser, Dimitri is angrily barking orders at his men as the ship experiences turbulence. The troops inform their leader that they were hit by a massive shock wave that they couldn't detect. They find that the shock must have come from the Floating Island, which is directly behind them. Finding a transmission of Chaos Knuckles fighting Turbo Tails and then suddenly vanishing, Dimitri decides that they need to head for the Floating Island post-hate.

Knuckles arrives at a ruined Dark Legion base on the Floating Island, having teleported there after hearing Julie-Su's voice. He wanders inside to find her being captured by the Dark Legion...and himself coming to rescue her. Knuckles starts to intervene when the ghost of his ancestor, Hawking, appears to stop him. Hawking explains that Knuckles can now teleport through time and space, and takes Knuckles to his dead body in Haven as an example. He then tells Knuckles that both of them are actually evolving, despite his physical body being dead.

Hawking vanishes mysteriously while Knuckles ponders why he isn't in constant pain and agony anymore. The Dark Legion approaches the island, their sensors detecting massive amounts of energy radiating from Haven. Knuckles' energy wave disappears suddenly. Dimitri tells Lien-Da to fetch Julie-Su when the energy reading suddenly disappears. Chaos Knuckles appears in the ship behind them, demanding answers.
