Synopsis:
Carrying out Tharok's plan, the Legionnaires and the Fatal Five are unable to stop the approach of the Sun Eater. In a last ditch effort, Tharok theorizes that a bomb detonated at the Sun Eater's core will destroy him, but without a propulsion system, the only way to deliver the bomb is for a Legionnaire to sacrifice themselves. In the end, can the newly formed Fatal Five be trusted once given their pardons?
