Newcomer Jared Corbo introduced himself to the school and did his best to settle into a very strange place. Kevin Ford and Jean-Paul Beaubier's relationship was outed on the journals, leaving Kevin to explain to an upset Yvette Petrovic where she stood. Amahl Farouk decided to leave the mansion, refusing an offer of protection from David Langstrom and deciding to go it alone despite the dangers from the Templars still pursuing him, handing Remy LeBeau his file on Ozymandias.

Carmilla Black, at Jake Gavin's suggestion, approached Remy about a job with X-Force, but things did not go as she planned. Laurie Collins graduated to full X-Man and took on the code name of Wallflower. Artie Maddicks rejoined the New Mutants and Bishop accepted a half-joking job offer to join Vanessa Carlysle's detective agency.

Nicholas Gleason received a call for help from his estranged sister Natalie, which resulted in Kurt Sefton and Henry McCoy rescuing her from a strangely underprotected Purifiers compound. Natalie, uncomfortable with the idea of staying at the mansion, was found a place with a foster family in Salem Center for the duration.

Nico Minoru's Staff of One complicated a simple introductory game of DnD for the New Mutants, casting an illusion that they were inside the game and inhabiting their characters. A quest to raid a dragon's lair and the apparent death of one of their party later, the spell was broken and they 'returned' to the library, none the worse for wear.

And in an unexpected turn of events, after a period of increasing oddness, Marie-Ange Colbert quit X-Force and dumped Doug Ramsey via a "Dear John" letter, leaving for New Orleans. Doug was unable to follow her as he wanted, being bluntly warned by Remy that the New Orleans Guilds had put a price on the heads of all Hellfire Club members following their role in the ascension of Belladonna Boudreaux-LeBeau to Black Queen.
