Synopsis

The episode begins with Connor, Amaya, and Greg playing tag in the park. As Greg struggles to tag Connor and Amaya, he hits HQ, and it mysteriously floats. At night, the PJ Masks head over inside, and see that everything is floating as well. They try to pull a couple objects down, but they float away as soon as they let go. Gekko is especially having a hard time catching them because he does not have the skills for the situation like his friends do. Nevertheless, Catboy and Owlette assure him that he is part of the team and they must work together, and that there are many ways to solve a problem.

The PJ Masks take off in the Cat-Car as more objects from the town are floating around. They drive over to the park, where a laser beam is fired. The source of it is revealed to be Romeo, who has created a new invention: the Anti-Gravity Machine. With it, each zap that any object takes will float higher and higher. Once he finishes zapping everything, he will be the only person left on the ground so he can rule the world.

Romeo then proceeds to chase the PJ Masks so he can zap them as well. The team takes cover behind the bushes, where Catboy, who quickly grabs Gekko when he is struggling to run away, tells him to grab the machine while he and Owlette distract Romeo. However, Gekko complains that he cannot jump or fly. He sees a pile of leaves, though. Deciding that he could help out by learning to fly, he grabs a couple of leaves and flaps them as he runs over towards Romeo.

The villain sees Gekko and zaps his leaves. This enables him to fly, but he is unable to fly in the direction he wants to go in. Romeo prepares to zap Gekko, but Owlette grabs him and places him down. Once she does that, though, she gets zapped. Catboy tries to save her as she floats away, but she is too far out of his reach. Owlette tries to fly to overpower the anti-gravity, but she cannot control it as she is too light.

Catboy and Gekko take cover behind the Cat-Car. From there, Catboy decides to continue distracting Romeo while Gekko saves Owlette. Gekko calls out that he does not have the right abilities and thinks about what to do. Since he cannot fly like Owlette, he can jump like Catboy instead. To do that, he drives the Cat-Car over to her and uses its catapult feature to jump over her and grab her. He reaches the height that she’s in, but when he opens the dome, he falls out.

Catboy notices the Cat-Car land as he is being chased by Romeo and looks up at Owlette and Gekko. With Gekko weighing her down, they are at a certain height where Catboy can reach them. He grabs Gekko first and places him down. Unfortunately, when Catboy jumps up to grab Owlette next, Romeo zaps him, and he floats as well. The villain then zaps HQ, making the structure more lighter than it was with the first zap it took.

Gekko is left to save Catboy and Owlette and stop Romeo from zapping anything else, including HQ since he is going to zap it one more time to send it to the moon. Since flying or jumping did not work, Gekko attempts to use both abilities together by using the Cat-Car to help him catapult up to the floating leaves. It works this time, but he does not know what to do next.

Romeo sees Gekko’s rescue attempt. He zaps Catboy and Owlette to make them float up further and tries to zap Gekko. He hits the vehicle instead, and Gekko escapes the villain’s attempts to zap him, using the floating objects to help him back down and camouflaging himself. When he takes cover behind a tree, he suddenly notices his Super Lizard Grip. Even if he cannot jump or fly, he can use this ability to stick to the floating objects and get up to Catboy and Owlette.

Gekko runs out in the open and uses his grip feature to make his way up. Romeo finds him and attempts to zap him again, but the laser beams hit the objects that he was on before jumping off. Gekko soon reaches a sign. Using it as a mirror, he deflects the couple of rays that Romeo fired towards him. One of them hits the invention, and it floats out of the villain’s hands. Gekko obtains it, and he throws it to Catboy, who flips the switch and zaps everything back down.

Catboy zaps Owlette next. Now able to fly again, she flies him over to HQ, and he zaps the structure. Gekko catches up to the two, and he is given the machine to zap Catboy. With everything back to normal, Catboy takes the Anti-Gravity Machine. He fires one last laser beam, and Gekko deflects it with the sign. The invention is hit, and it floats away forever. Romeo catches up to the team just as it disappears in the sky. He swears revenge on them for losing his machine, and he retreats as the PJ Masks power up and proclaim their signature victory phrase.

The next day, Connor, Amaya, and Greg run back to the park playing tag again. Connor and Amaya run from Greg, but notice that he is gone. Greg pops out of the trees and tags the two. Even if he does not have the abilities that his friends have, he knows that there is more than one way to solve a problem. Greg runs off, and Connor and Amaya chase after him, ending the episode.
