Dr. Gero believes that Androids 17 and 18 will be the keys to his victory, but problems arise. For one, his run-in with Krillin just leads the other Z Fighters right to him. However, by the time they arrive, Dr. Gero is in his laboratory and activating the two Androids. He orders them to destroy the Z Fighters, but 17 and 18 display a lack of obedience. They quickly turn on their creator. Meanwhile, Yamcha and Chi-Chi watch over a struggling Goku. He looks bad, but what he’s dreaming is even worse.
