The Cassidy Keep battle between the X-Men and Juggernaut (under the direction of Black Tom) is joined. During the mayhem, Storm thinks back to her past, including the death of her parents in Egypt during the 1952 Suez War and her life as a Cairo street urchin/thief and African goddess. Meanwhile, in New York, at Jean Grey's bedside, Professor X senses that the X-Men are in peril. He orders Cyclops to go to Ireland to assist them, but he refuses. Professor X is then struck with the image of someone from his powerful dreams. Back in Ireland, Black Tom and Juggernaut seem to be getting the upper hand. They reveal their plan — to lure Professor X to Ireland.
