"Romeo's Disguise" (also known as "Bibou et son double" in French) is the second segment of the 7th Season 2 episode of PJ Masks.
Romeo captures Owlette and uses a new Disguise Machine to disguise himself as her so he can trick Catboy and Gekko into capturing Luna Girl, her Moths, Night Ninja and his Ninjalinos.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Romeo's Disguise":
The episode begins with the PJ Masks facing off Romeo, who has PJ Robot. He draws on his face before giving him back, then leaves in his lab, listening to the team’s conversation and formulating a plan. The next day, Connor, Amaya, and Greg discuss about what makes a hero, such as doing the right thing, according to the Flossy Flash comic book. They have an intent on playing a trick on Romeo, but it would make them no better than him.
The kids head over to HQ that night when they see wing contraptions on one of the trees. As Catboy and Gekko clean the markers off PJ Robot’s face from last night, the PJ Picture Player notifies Owlette of an apparently new Flossy Flash comic. She runs outside to pick it up, but it disappears. It turns out Romeo set the trap as Robot captures her and brings her over to his lab, where his new invention, the Disguise Machine, is located; Romeo is going to trick Catboy and Gekko into helping him with his latest plan by being the “new and improved Owlette.”
Romeo chains Owlette and activates the Disguise Machine to scan her appearance so he can disguise himself as her, then places her in the lab so she can watch the whole scheme unfold. He goes inside headquarters and informs Catboy and Gekko of a new way to get revenge on all the nighttime villains instead of following Flossy Flash’s hero advice. Although confused of these actions, the boys follow him into the Owl-Glider, unaware of his true identity. He flies erratically until they land at the sports hall when he spots Night Ninja and his Ninjalinos.
Romeo tells the team to use their powers on the ninjas, even though they are just doing their ninja ballet. The ninjas attack them with Sticky Splats, though Catboy wraps up the Ninjalinos, and Gekko and Romeo lead Night Ninja into a sticky splat puddle. After he briefly celebrates, Romeo says to leave the ninjas where they are to teach them a lesson. Robot arrives to gather up the group as the three leave, Catboy and Gekko still confused at “Owlette’s behavior,” and trap them in a Ball Cage.
A few moments later, Romeo and the team arrive at the museum, where Romeo falsifies Luna Girl’s painting activity as a moon-related plot. Luna Girl and her moths attack the group, which Gekko counteracts with his Super Gekko Shields; Luna Girl is knocked off her Luna Board as a result. Romeo takes the board and Luna Magnet and flies off with them, claiming that they’ll give them back later. The team follows him, and Robot traps Luna Girl and her moths as well.
Eventually, after seeing the events unfold, Owlette is able to free herself from the chains and exit the lab. Romeo sees her escaping, so he warns the team that Owlette is Romeo in disguise. Although Owlette tries to convince her friends that the Owlette with them is actually Romeo, they don’t believe her since she came out of the lab. They soon realize the truth when she pushes them out of the way before Robot traps them, though at the cost of getting trapped herself, and Romeo transforms back into his own self.
Robot traps Catboy and Gekko and connects all of the ball cages to each other. Romeo activates the gliders underneath them and sends everyone to the moon, where he’ll be the only villain on Earth to take over the world. Catboy and Gekko are shocked that they have fallen for Romeo’s disguise and were mean to everyone. Owlette assures them that this won’t stop them from being heroes, so Catboy lassos his Super Cat Stripes to one of the light poles; he and Gekko hold on as they call PJ Robot for help.
Owlette convinces the villains, who are angry at the boys about earlier, to help as well, telling them that what happened was all because of Romeo. The ninjas throw sticky splats out of the cages while the moths fly out and blow the projectiles at the gliders just in time before the light pole breaks. As they celebrate their victory, Romeo and Robot move out of the way when everyone crash-lands. PJ Robot sneaks over to the Disguise Machine and scans Robot to disguise himself as him.
PJ Robot goes over to Romeo, takes the remote control from him, and presses the button to set everyone free. Before he could begin scolding, Romeo runs away in shock upon seeing two Robots, with the real Robot running after him. Owlette briefly traps Romeo and Robot with the Ball Cage and confirms with them that the team has always been heroes while Romeo has always been a villain, even if he is in disguise. After Robot expresses his happiness that Romeo is back just the way he is and PJ Robot transforms back into himself, the two are released, and all the villains leave.
The team expresses their happiness to have Owlette just the way she is. She jokingly performs an evil dance, and they announce their signature victory phrase.
