In Wyoming, Storm and Nazé part company as she heads off to Forge’s aerie. During her climb she’s met with some black lightning, an avalanche and a horde of demons. She eventually makes it to the top, only to be met by hundreds more demons. She spots Forge not too far off – a hole in the sky above him - and heads towards him. She eventually slaughters the whole crew of otherwordly creatures and gets to Forge. He’s surprised to see her, and is even more surprised when she shoves her knife into his chest. He confesses to her that he was trying to stop the Adversary not help him. She suddenly realizes that she’s been played for a fool. With death at hand they jump off the cliff side, only to be sucked up into the Adversary’s sky gate. In San Francisco, Val Cooper holds a press conference to talk about Freedom Force. She’s met by some resistance by the reporters, but handles them well. In Murphy’s Gym, Rogue is approached by Mystique who bears news of ill tidings for the X-Men. She wants Rogue to go with her to avoid her impending doom, but she decides to stay with them. At a nearby club, Dazzler puts on a light show of her own, much to the dismay of Wolverine. He wants the X-Men to keep low profiles. Downtown, Havok and Longshot, rescue a girl from a bunch of punks. Lt. Morrell shows up to arrest the would-be kidnappers and alerts Havok to the task-force that’s looking for them. A bit later, at Alcatraz, the X-Men discuss Destiny’s precognitive vision about their death. The key lies with Storm, so they all decide to go look for her.
