Synopsis for "Thunder in the Darkness!"
Resurfacing in Seattle, Washington, Godzilla continues his rampage in America. As the beast destroys everything in it's path, SHIELD's Godzilla Squad triest their best to keep the creature contained with their weapons. While inside the SHIELD helicarrier, Dum Dum Dugan speaks with Yuriko Takiguchi and Tamara Hashioka about how to destroy the creature, upsetting young Robert Takiguchi, who does not wish to see the monster killed.
As the creature approaches the Space Needle, a plan is devised when they realize that Godzilla appears to be drawn by the lights of the city. Shutting off the power, the SHIELD agents then lure the creature with a giant spotlight to the coast of the Pacific Ocean, where they blind Godzilla with a blast of light from the helicarrier. As the beast is disorientated they fire projectiles at the monster knocking it into the ocean. While everyone else considers the mission a success, Robert believes that Godzilla's cunning will see him return to attack the United States anew.
