|“||They may not accept us, but it's our mission to protect them.||”|
"Rise of the Secret Soldiers" is the 21st and 22nd episode in Season 3 of Lab Rats. It first aired on January 26, 2015. This is the 67th-68th episode overall. It features the first appearance of Sebastian and the Bionic Soldiers
As Adam, Bree, and Chase become celebrities, fame begins to tear them apart. The friction among the group becomes evident when a reality show follows them on a mission and things don't go well. However, they must put aside their differences to stop Krane from his evil plan of taking over the planet.
Leo arrives at the household to give Adam, Bree, and Chase some interesting news. He brought home magazines that have incorrect info on the bionic team. Bree and Chase are upset, but it seems that Adam likes it, because it has things about him. They try to fix it by planning to gain good publicity by having a camera crew film them during a mission, which was to stop a power surge. However, it turns to disaster when they fight for screen time. Meanwhile, Perry gives Bionic House tours to gain money because the Davenports won't let her steal stuff. Adam, Bree and Chase failing the mission sends the world into total darkness, leading America and the rest of the world to turn against them. The president orders the team to stay away from the public in order to let him settle things down. Leo and Perry are holding back angry protesters, who want Adam, Bree, and Chase gone, but things take a turn for the worst when Leo accidentally uses his bionic arm. As the protesters become even more enraged, they try to storm the house, and Adam panics and uses his bionic super breath to blow everyone off the premises. This causes the world to become fearful of bionic humans all over again. However, the three get into a fight. They eventually decide to break up the team.
Three weeks later, Adam, Bree and Chase are shown not talking to each other, and acting normal with their bionics. Mr. President informs Donald about communications equimpment being stolen from the local military base, and tells him to get the team back on the job. They are forced into action when Krane plans to use his Triton app on everyone in the world. A large battle ensues pitting the Lab Rats, Donald, Douglas, and Leo versus Krane and his bionic army. Soon, however, although the Lab Rats manage to hold back many of the soldiers, they are running out of time to stop Krane and his Triton App. Douglas then reveals that Adam, Bree, and Chase can fuse their abilities to stop Krane, and they succeed. The soldiers are no longer controlled by Krane, who's been blasted far away, which caused them to drop like flies. But their victory is cut short when they find Donald in serious condition, and later they find even after surgery Donald is still in very delicate condition.

Sadly, due to Elite Force being canceled, although Douglas has now been confirmed alive it is still unknown what state he is in after the attack or what effects that might have had on him, whether that would be blindness (likely as Reese did blast him in the eyes), paralysis requiring him to use a wheelchair, or even possibly if Reese’s attack somehow affected him to the point that he gained abilities from it.

- In the ending exclusive to Part 1, one of the items seen in Perry's pile of items she stole from the house was one of the older mission suits that Adam, Bree, and Chase used from Rats on a Train up until Bionic Showdown Part 1.
- When Principal Perry attempts to steal household items, her trench coat keeps switching from buttoned up to open.
