Aghanne gets word of Cyclops's death and is not deeply affected.

The rest of the X-Men prepare to continue the plan, Kitty and Emma re more hostile then ever.

One of teh Break World scientists ressurects Cyclops in teh same way Ord did to Colossus. He is interrogated about the Secret Weapon.

Elsewhere Armor and Wolverine battle the Break World army and are taken prisoner.

Beast and Brand discover a hidden truth about the prophecy as it is recent and not a prophecy but a plan.

Cyclops is still being tortured and is informed of his friends capture.

Colossus and Shadowcat make it back to Aghanne and Shadowcat mentions phasing is hard on this planet and painful.

Cyclops reveals to his captor that his death was part of the plan, as they knew he was watching and the team had been talking telepathically and they are ready to bring the final stage of the plan.
The interrogator demands to know what other lies Scott has told, Scott then reveals his powers have returned by blasting his captor close range, freeing Wolverine and himself in the process, Cyclops then rally's his X-Men.
