Much to Dexter's shock, Dee Dee ends up winning the contest. Luckily for him, he is able to convince Dee Dee to let him be her guest. Dee Dee and Dexter, along with the other lucky winners, visit the factory, however Dee Dee's "destructive" nature ends up destroying the factory which caused Hawk to receive a stunning revelation and break free from his robotic "body". Dee Dee made him realize how important his body and emotions were and abandoned his focus on science to focus on dancing. He then decided to hand over the factory to whoever could dance the best, and in then he quickly voted for himself and ran off back into his destroyed factory while leaving everyone deeply confused.
