Following Rock's plan, Dutch uses a sunken ship as a springboard to launch the Black Lagoon into the air and destroy the gunship with torpedoes. The Lagoon Company manages to deliver the disk to Balalaika, who gives the disk to Kageyama, as he had made a deal with the Russian Mafia as a contingency.

The two are attacked by the Nazis and in the midst of the firefight, Rock loses the painting. The Nazis obtain it and retreat back to the surface with it. Revy attempts to pursue them, but Rock forces her to abandon the fight when the Nazis use machine guns to fire into the water.
