"You wish to make us dance, Mr. Wilson? Then come, let us dance."
A simple dance contest turns sinister when Wanda and Kurt discover the event manager has his own agenda.
Having convinced Kurt to come out dancing with her, Wanda and her partner were approached to enter a dance contest. Having missed the last one due to possession, they decided to try out. They did well, but after the first round, found themselves exhausted at the end of the night. Wanda collapsed on the floor of her apartment and was discovered by Remy, who took her to the Snow Valley medical center. No trace of any drug or similar was found, and it was decided to be simply Wanda over-extending herself after her near-death experience in Germany.
They returned to the competition several days later, only to have a repeat of the experience. Suspicious, Wanda engaged the assistance of Marie-Ange and Doug to come along and investigate - when all four dancers were reduced to exhaustion beyond their expectation, suspicions were heightened. Attending the next night's dance, they confronted the organiser, a rather smarmy individual by the name of Gregory Wilson. It became apparent Wilson was a mutant, feeding off the energy of those in an energized state, such as when dancing. He had arranged the contests as his own personal smorgasboard, failing to see the danger he put people in - there had been injuries among those he had fed from as they tried to go home in the customary exhausted state. A fight ensued, but the activity only served to increase Wilson's intake. Wanda sent Kurt to cut the sound system of the dance still going on, and used her personal energy levels to over-feed Wilson, to the point he became so bloated and engorged he could barely move. He was left for the authorities, and the four made their escape.
Trivia and Meta
After they defeated Wilson, Wanda and Kurt wound up spending the night together. It was Kurt's first time.
Wilson was socked by Jen, and the plot was inspired by the song "Mr Pinstripe Suit" by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
