Turtles, Splinter, and Ninjara travel across southern Iran, sneak aboard a boat, travel across Saudi Arabia and finally near at their destination - Al Hadidah, the valley of the fallen stars. They have come in search of the Black Stone of Mecca, the fifth most difficult object in the world to steal. Splinter tells the tale of the Black Stone. It is very important to the religion of Islam. The next day, as the journey continues, Ninjara tells of a second stone, the White Stone. According to legend, the two stones fell. Reportedly a nomad disappeared with the White Stone before anyone else arrived on the scene. Supposedly wealthy men have been selling the stone for the past 3,000 years and have been trying to steal its Black twin - as legend has it that the man who holds both Stones will live forever.
As they continue, they pass another group, one of which seems to recognize Splinter. The Turtles find an abandoned city. The team takes shelter to prepare for a sandstorm that is brewing. A falcon takes news of the Turtles arrival to an eagle-headed mutant. But then the turtles are attacked and the eagle mutant joins the fray. He reveals his name to be Al Falqa. He believed that it was the turtles who had stolen the stone, but of course it was the other riders that they passed. Sandstorm hits.
In distance, the rider who had recognized Splinter watches the turtles through binoculars and it is revealed that it's Shredder...
