However, Bowie refuses and with Sabeuxo's help, the blue bear is taken down.

Fangerine seems invincible to attacks and Bowie and the other person are shoved back easily by everything. It wasn't long before an attack by Fangerine knocks Bowie off the battlefield and into a bottomless pit, prompting Unten to finish off Fangerine by attacking the bottom of her ship, causing it to malfunction, leading the bears to hide alongside Fangerine, who just escapes. Bowie wakes up, and can't remember who he is, but notes the red wrapping tape next to him, and becomes something entirely different.|

|Walking back home, Ashe wonders what happened to Bowie, with Sabeuxo noting that he has died and that he will have a good time in the place where no one needs to see his "ugly mug" ever again. Somewhat disgusted by the remark, the ally slaps Sabeuxo, telling him that he should be more respectful towards his family, and smugly Sabeuxo asks him where is his family, to which he held himself silent.

Bowie refers to himself as the "Red in Ribbons" and continues throughout the rest of the episode under this strange name.

|Endal's deceased body is shown in a laboratory, with a dark cape hanging above his body, the monkey lifeless and rather limp, hanging in place. Fangerine is pacing the place, trying to figure out how to find Bowie and use his skin to fix up Endal and give him new life. Instead however, she comes across Flare, who was looking for how to get to her base, and as a result, Fangerine takes her and tosses her into a boiling pot to be used as new parts for Endal.

|37||17||The Plunge||March 24th, 2019||3.70|
|Endal is seemingly defeated - rather quickly this time - but it appears to just be an excuse for Fangerine to finish up her plans and launch her Death's Construction plans. Annoyed, Unten goes out to confront Fangerine alongside Bowie, the two talking as they go, and even become somewhat of friends. Fangerine meanwhile enlists Fudgebuckets' help to plunge the Ironworks in foggy skies and shut down the factories so that no one has power.|
|38||18||The Leader has Fallen||March 31st, 2019||4.00|
|Bowie and Unten finally climb to Fangerine's final hideout, and confront her in a second major battle, Bowie abandoning his alter ego.

Angered, Unten enlists the help of Sabeuxo and the two try to fight Fangerine, although she proves invincible to their attacks, and tells them that if they wish to defeat her, they need to climb to the top of the nearby mountain and survive Death's Construction. A mechanical laughing is heard in the background.|
|39||19||Death's Construction, Part I||April 7th, 2019||4.20|
|Sabeuxo and Unten climb to the top of the mountain Fangerine set them up to go up, and the two opposers of her work get into various arguments along the way, which begins to hinder their strategy and they break up and go separate ways, Unten being left to fight off Death's Construction alone. As he goes, Fangerine chases him, making him run for his life, engaging him at the mountain top with her plans. A renewed Endal is released from Fangerine's arms, looking like a cross between a monkey, a phoenix, and a cyborg, and forces it to attack Unten, easily tackling him down. Upon tearing him open though, Fangerine gasps as it wasn't really Unten, but a black teddy bear, wounded and torn apart for reasons currently unknown. Even as Endal prepares to finish it off, the earth from underneath crackles. Fangerine, Endal, the black bear, and a wounded Bowie and a tired Sabeuxo look in horror to see the Ironworks split apart, a giant orb emerging from the depths of the Earth, awakened by all this noise and destruction.|
|40||20||Death's Construction, Part II||April 14th, 2019||4.40|
The giant monster, the Terrafying Globe as dubbed by Endal in whisper, begins attacking the world, sending everyone off into hiding and fear, lying its destruction everywhere, wreaking immense havoc. Almost everyone in the episode hides, mutters last words, and the like as the beast attacks. Endal, regaining his senses, returns to the destroyed central computer of the Ironworks and picks up information from the supercomputer about the Terrafying Globe, noting that destroying the globe will reset the events back to when the Ironworks were never made, but time will resume as normal. Having come so far, Endal felt defeated and set bombs throughout the Ironworks, getting out and grabbing Bowie, Ashe, Windi and Sabeuxo and the black bear as the globe blew up alongside the buildings, hiding underground with his enemies. Upon them escaping the reshaping underground, they find that a new forest stood where the Ironworks once was. Fangerine, additionally, is unable to be seen, implying that she has died.
"God." muttered Ashe.
