Synopsis:
The Crimson Commando and Stonewall are taken to Freedom Force's headquarters where they are to be made members. After a bit of hazing from the veterans, Spiral senses an intruder. She teleports out of there and snags him. It turns out to be Super Sabre, who joins the team. Inside, Destiny screams. She senses the end of the X-Men, and the world. In the Rocky Mountains, Nazé falls over and is terribly ill. Storm takes care of him and makes him some medicine. Nazé has her take it first and suddenly a huge bear busts through the wall and attacks her. Later on, a giant snake attacks her. Eventually, she runs smack dab into Forge, who tries to woo her to the side of chaos. She's left with only one choice. She unsheathes her knife and stabs him in the chest. Suddenly, the world changes around her. She's back in the cabin. It was only a test by Nazé. She passed. Over in San Francisco, the X-Men hone their battle skills. Dazzler gets a little careless and Wolverine comes down hard on her. However, he says he's pleased with Rogue's progress. The team discusses their desire to bring the Marauders to justice. Nearby, Maddie is thinking about her past. She's all upset about Scott and her baby. Alex sees her looking over the edge of a cliff and rushes to her aid. They discuss their problems and Alex manages to comfort his desolate sister-in-law.
