Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Cable and Jenskot have been transported back into a time period of Cable’s younger life. As they explore the area, Cable isn’t sure what to do and what to say to Aliya, as he has so much to tell her, but knows he can’t do it as it will change the course of history too much. They are joined by Domino, who was also transported by Blaquesmith. She immediately notices the way Cable stares at Aliya and isn’t amused by it, but learns to live with it when she learns of Aliya’s name and how she is connected to Tyler. Jenskot continues to lead them through Stryfe’s camp, and later brings them safely to the camp of the Askani. There, Cable and Domino meet up with Blaquesmith and Aliya explains to them that they have to save the young Dayspring’s life, who became very ill after a telepathic attack from Stryfe. Cable is a bit stunned when he first sees his younger self, but knows he has to do whatever must be done to save him. Inside his camp, Stryfe holds one of the Askani rebels prisoner: Tetherblood. He has also stolen a glowing object from the Askani camp and demands that Tetherblood tells him what it is, but the Askani bravely refuses, even under torture. Back at the camp, after talking to Blaquesmith, Domino believes she was brought there to do what Cable could never to: kill Stryfe so they can end the cycle between them. She leaves the camp while Cable has a briefing with the other rebels about what to do. He also learns there’s a traitor among them, but isn’t sure who it is. When he realizes Domino is missing, he immediately goes after her. Domino is already back at Stryfe’s camp and gets a clear shot at him, but wonders if this is the right thing to do. Before she can attack, however, Cable prevents Domino from killing his old adversary. Unfortunately, Stryfe hears the discussions and sends guards after them. Aliya and the other rebels buy Domino and Cable some time by fighting the guards, so they can do their jobs. Cable and Domino rescue Tetherblood and also the glowing object, which is revealed to be sentient and identified as the Professor, and old friend and mentor of Cable. The traitor is revealed to be Korless, one of the Askani rebels who wants a place in Stryfe’s new world order when he gains victory. Cable on the other hand remembers an old lesson the Professor once taught him, and has him perform a body-slide. He, Domino, the Prof and Tetherblood are all safely teleported away back to the Askani camp, while Korless gets tortured by Stryfe for failing at his duties. Aliya and the other rebels also safely return to the camp. There, Cable has Blaquesmith place the Professor inside Dayspring so he’ll survive. The plan works. Later, after saying a sad goodbye to Aliya, Blaquesmith teleports Cable and Domino back to their proper time. The next day, Dayspring is back in shape and continues his war against Stryfe and his army.
