It's A Long Shot is the 44th episode of Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It aired on May 4, 2008 in English.


Dan and Drago appear to be down for the count being badly injured. But then Masquerade and Alpha Hydranoid arrive just in time to save Dan Kuso and Drago, from Centorrior and Druman. Knowing that without a plan, they won't be able to win, the duo retreat. They come up with a plan to take out Druman and Centorrior. Everything begins to go as planned, with Drago luring Druman while Hydranoid getting Centorrior's attention. All is well when Centorrior and Druman are in range of the Gate Card, Masquerade then activates the Gate Card and the two are slowly defeated. Suddenly the plan crumbles and falls apart as Druman destroys the Gate Card. Drago then attacks Druman, although Druman reflects the attack bouncing off and hitting Hydranoid, Masquerade and Alpha Hydranoid fall off the cliff and the Battle Brawlers look like they have failed. The battle rages on as Drago tries to get Druman and Centorrior to a specific area. It turned out that Masquerade and Dan predicted that Druman would reflect the attack, knocking off Hydranoid. Druman and Centorrior didn't realize Alpha Hydranoid had wings making Hydranoid and Masquerade able to survive the fall. Dan and Drago carry on the fight to get Druman and Centorrior onto a specific area. Dan then gives Masquerade a signal, Hydranoid and Masquerade activates a long-ranged powerful attack which seem to destroy Druman and Centorrior. Later on, it is showed that Druman and Centorrior were given orders from Naga to lose on purpose in order to stall the brawlers. After the match, Masquerade takes off his mask, turning back into Alice. Shun, Marucho, Runo and Julie arrive back from the previous worlds and are all surprised Alice is here. All the brawlers, one by one forgive Alice and all is forgotten. The 6 Battle Brawlers then progress to see Silent Naga in the last world.
