Skullfire and La Lunática inform the group that Xi'an has joined the Theatre of Pain. Skullfire wants to rebuild the X-Men without Xi'an; the others aren't sure what to do.
Meanwhile, the Freakshow arrive in the Keewazi Nation. Rosa's baby is scanned and revealed to be a boy. Unfortunately, Rosa's old lover, Glitterspike, shows up. Metalhead wants to beat Glitterspike's head in after learning of how Glitterspike beat Rosa upon hearing of the pregnancy. Glitterspike defeats Metalhead. It seems to have been a misunderstanding: Glitterspike claims to want to take care of the baby, now.
