Hellfire Club goons are searching for Wolvie in the basement, but he easily defeats them. Upstairs, Jean, currently under Mastermind's control as the Black Queen, is talking to the captive X-Men as if they were in colonial North America. Downstairs, Wolverine has gotten as high as the dumbwaiter will go but needs to get upstairs. He gets spotted and a fight ensues. Upstairs Scott uses his psychic rapport with Jean to try to communicate with her, and ends up in astral combat with Jason Wyngarde. Jason thoroughly defeats him and in reality he collapses, presumed dead.
