Kyle "Wildchild" Gibney and John Henry Forge both arrived at the mansion. Cecilia Reyes and Shinobi Shaw both left. Lorna Dane's mother was in a car accident and she and Alex Summers spent time in California as a result. Sam made attempts to repair the rifts created by his reaction to Paige Guthrie's choice in boyfriends. Alison Blaire and Haroun al-Rashid eventually got a clue and began their relationship; Amanda Sefton and Manuel de la Rocha came close to ending theirs. The stressful month got to several of the residents, necessitating a restorative kidnapping by Domino and Pete Wisdom of Amanda, Marie-Ange Colbert and Sarah Morlocke, and insomnia (requiring medical intervention) and near-breakdown in many others, as well as a series of nasty journal fights. The infirmary staff were stretched to the limit by the continuing absence of Henry McCoy. Several 'full disclosure' posts were made in an attempt to clear the air of secret pasts that might threaten the school. Remy LeBeau had a rather explosive return, departure and re-return to the school. Kitty Pryde got a new pet - Lockheed the Dragon.

Several people - staff and students - asked for or did powers training with Moira and Amanda began instruction in her TK spell with Nathan Dayspring. Manuel succeeded eventually in finding someone to practice projective empathy on, in order to satisfy the White Queen's demands. Madelyn Bartlet proposed an informal mentoring scheme among the staff to try and connect with the students better. Shiro Yoshida's powers returned, with some help from Alex's. Dr. Stephen Strange concluded his involvement with Illyana Rasputin after giving Charles Xavier all the information he had gathered about Limbo and Belasco and strengthening the wards on the mansion and grounds.

Betsy Braddock was reinstated to the X-Men following her absence and Scott Summers came very close to quitting as a result of stress. Alison and Haroun were made CO and XO respectively of X-Men: Black. Marie-Ange, Jamie Madrox and Jubilation Lee all expressed a desire to join the X-Men trainees. Paige was measured for her leathers.
