The New Warriors are on their way to another small town to be saved when their tire is shredded. While they try to replace it, Ashley continues to attempt to pitch the show to network executives. He explains how he managed to get them all back together as well as the origin of Microbe, who turns out to be Night Thrasher's adopted son. Back at the RV, Microbe does something useful by having parasites eat through the rubber and refill the tire with an oxygen biproduct. He's not useless afterall, hurray!
