|"The Adventure Begins"|
|Airdate||June 25, 2012|
In Sandtrap, Dax, Jason, and Seal drive across the desert in a Warthog which, according to Dax, they conveniently found on their quest. Jason complains about the music playing on the radio and tells Dax to turn it off. Dax tries to convince him to keep it on by suggesting they change the genre to Country, but this only irritates Jason even more. Dax continues to suggest music and asks Seal if he has any music suggestions. Seal, however, recommends they get back on task, to which Jason agrees. As a result, Dax reluctantly turns off the music and the three venturers continue on their journey.
Twelve days earlier, in Sandbox, Claire spies on the Blues, now consisting of only Legend and Ichabod. She heads inside the base and finds Thomas looking over a comatose Gates. The two conversate over his condition, with Claire revealing that she sees him as a brother. After Thomas questions why, Claire explains her relationships with her teammates: seeing Miller as a cool and quiet guy with herd mentality and Thomas as a nerdy cubicle worker. Thomas asks her about her relationship with Wilbur but Claire is reluctant to answer. Claire then explains her future plans to Thomas, telling him how she can take over now that Gates is out cold and Miller is getting pummeled by Wilbur. Suddenly, the two notice blood pouring out of Gates' helmet, prompting Claire to rush for paper towels, while Thomas stands by Gates' side.
- During Jason and Dax's argument over the radio, Dax states, "Kale McCloud, the King of Rock." This is a reference to composer Kevin MacLeod, a musician that provides a majority of music to the series.
- It is revealed that Thomas is now aware of Miller lying to him about being Jason.
- Originally, the song "A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis Presley was meant to be featured at the beginning of the episode.
