Vendetta is the forty-fourth episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.


A deadly criminal known as "Ragnarok" breaks out of the Null Void, and begins a search for a mysterious key. Meanwhile, Kevin returns home to find his house ransacked. His mom (in her first appearance) then confesses the truth about Ragnarok. Kevin then asks Ben and Gwen if they know anything about Ragnarok, and when they tell him that they have no knowledge, he tells them to stay out of the situation.

The two, now concerned, decide to investigate anyway. Ben as Jetray flies with Gwen to ask Grandpa Max if he knows anything about the escape as well as an alien named Ragnarok. He confesses of having a partner named Devin, who gave his life to stop Ragnarok several years back. His partner's full name was Devin Levin, Kevin's dad. Ben and Gwen track Kevin with his Plumber's Badge and together force Ragnarok to flee.


Gwen, Ben and Kevin following Ragnarok

Gwen then helps Kevin find the "key," (a item Ragnarok needs to get to his ship we learn was disguised as a picture frame) but Ragnarok steals it, then teleports to his ship. Ben, Gwen, and Kevin manage to transport themselves via the same signal, but before they find Ragnarok, Kevin tricks the other two to get into an escape pod.

With Ben and Gwen descending down to Earth, Kevin can have his revenge. He and Ragnarok battle, while Kevin causes the entire ship to de-stabilize into a vortex. Ragnarok begs Kevin to save him, stating that his father would save him.


Max and Devin as Plumber partners

Despite his desperation, Kevin merely takes his key and lets him get sucked into the vortex. When Ben and Gwen see the ship explode, Gwen starts to cry, thinking that Kevin was dead. Ben tries to calm her down by telling her that Kevin was a hero to the very end.

Kevin then shows up, making a joke about them caring about him. Ben is surprised that he survived and Gwen ran up to Kevin, hugging him and telling him that she was worried. Ben and Gwen ask what happened; he simply states that Ragnarok didn't make it.
