The Awesome Ones are on the run after Lord Brakken has called for their arrest, they run through Brakistan trying to lose Callous' trail on them. Dan calls out to his friends and gives them an idea to disguise themselves. Lia pretends to run a juice stand, Wynton pretends to be a repairman, Shun pretends to be an expert juggler, and Dan pretends to be a barber. Callous is very suspicious of the disguises, Dan attempts to give Callous a haircut but sneezes, accidentally cutting part of Callous' mustache. Callous discovers that this is all a ruse, and chases after Dan and the others.
The Awesome Ones are exhausted from running, and Wynton discovers a Core Cell is nearby, there is some sort of gap in the ground, which is actually an entrance to The Maze. Callous surrounds them with the servants, and Lightning runs towards the portal, but it then closes afterward. Lia and Lightning explore the Maze and find a tree that looks familiar to the tree from the palace. Dan, Shun, and Wynton are then taken by the guards but aren't tied up as Brakken has ordered "one of them" not to be. The brawlers send out their Bakugan to escape once again, but they are stopped by a device which forces the Bakugan back into their ball form.
Callous ties Dan, Wynton, and Shun up but then notices that Lia and Lightning are missing. Unfortunately, Lia and Lightning find themselves back on the surface next to Callous and the servants. Callous tries to tie Lia and Lightning up until Brakken appears orders his servant to stop as he told Callous to be gentle to them. Dan believes they are free to go, but Brakken tells them that Lia Venegas must be his queen and marry him in order to be free. Confronted with the choice, Lia agrees to be his queen, shocking Dan, Wynton, and Shun.
