Scott and Logan both returned from extended absences and Emma was retrieved from Paris. Several new students arrived: Monet 'M' St. Croix, Manuel 'Empath' de la Rocha, Shinobi Shaw, Miles 'Leech' Blaire and Clarice "Blink" Ferguson. Various families visited for various reasons, including the Guthries, the Madroxes, Angelo's mother and Lorna's parents. A semi-formal dance was held after Christmas, which resulted in various crushes and relationships progressing. Piotr held a New Year's celebration in the traditional Russian way, with vodka and was not exactly discreet about it. Pete was made a student counsellor.
Using information obtained by Doug through his hacking and language skills, Pete enlisted Betsy's brother Brian to go with him to Paris, where Emma Frost was being held in a mental hospital connected to Sebastian Shaw. She was already in the process of freeing herself, with the assistance of Manuel de la Rocha, another patient being trained as a mindbreaker, and Shaw's own disenchanted son, Shinobi. Both boys were brought back to the school despite staff misgivings. Manuel spent much of his first weeks in a coma, the result of the tampering he had received.
The Angelo-Paige-Jono relationship became more complicated with Angelo professing his feelings for Paige and then being caught kissing her by Jono. In the resulting fight, Angelo suffered flashbacks and inadvertently hit Paige. He was convinced not to leave, but the incident left him in a depressed state for several weeks. His roomates, concerned and frustrated, threw him out of the room until he could got some help. Eventually Alison took Paige, Angelo and Jono (with Bobby as well) to Mexico to sort things out. It was there they discovered Leech, a mutant child being hidden in a cave by the local children who had helped him escape from a travelling freak show. Alison arranged to have him made her ward and brought him back to the school. Sarah later identified the child (now called Miles Blaire) as one of the Morlocks, although Miles himself had no memory of her or the sewers.
Alex had an accident with his powers, catching Lorna in the explosion and causing her extensive third-degree burns. Racked with guilt, he ran away from the school on Christmas Eve. Betsy began experiencing periods of lost time and uncharacteristic behaviour including taking a katana from Logan and wrenching a bone out of Sarah's back and causing her injury. She told Scott about these strange incidents and asked Moira to help her get in touch with Essex for answers.
