Episode summary

Sonic and Eggman trapped together.

On Angel Island, Sonic the Hedgehog is seen being sent back in time after the conclusion of Sonic Forces. He then discovers there are holes in the ground, likely due to a certain eggheaded scientist who flies overhead with a capsule full of Flickies in tow. Quickly responding, Sonic speeds through the jungle with a smirk. Coming to a clearing, he finds the capsule and proceeds to walk casually towards it, only to set off a chain of hidden spike traps. He manages to reach the capsule and set the Flickies free. However, it turns out that the capsule was a trap, and Sonic is pushed off the capsule and is caught with his leg around a noose as the capsule transforms into a time bomb, with Eggman showing up to mock the hedgehog.

Sonic comes up with an idea. He pulls out the green Chaos Emerald, and Eggman, naturally, tries to snatch it away from him, and ends up getting his leg caught in a second noose trap. Trapped together, Sonic and Eggman fight over the Emerald, and Sonic sets himself free by cutting his rope with a spin attack. As the hedgehog tries to leave Eggman to be blown up, the doctor pulls a puppy dog expression, to which a dismayed Sonic reluctantly agrees to help him. A small device falls from Eggman's pocket which Sonic picks up. It then displays the current status of the other six Chaos Emeralds, with Eggman having four of them, and the red and grey Emeralds still out there somewhere, and Eggman planning on taking Sonic's emerald for himself. After seeing this, Sonic punches the time bomb, taking seven seconds away from the timer, and runs away, leaving Eggman alone with the bomb as it detonates.

Afterwards, the forest is seen in bad shape as a metal boot steps down looking for something...
