Ink delivers his captives, Moonstar and Blindfold, to his employer before returning to the X-Men. Meanwhile, the other young X-Men are able to take out Magma, but their very public battle alerts the other New Mutants that the X-Men are coming after them. The battle also leaves Dust gravely injured, turned to glass. When Ink returns he informs Cyclops that Moonstar has her abilities back and has taken Blindfold captive. From the shadows a mysterious figure over hears this, and is told by someone else, Cyclops must die. Elsewhere, Blindfold and Moonstar recover to find they are prisoners of Donald Pierce.
