The parents of Alex Wilder are having their annual get together with several other families. While the 6 families talk in the library, their children are stuck in the game room. Bored, Alex decides that they should all make the best of it and they manage to find a secret passage, allowing them to spy on their parents. But, when they witness their parents dressed up in costumes, their suspicion rises and they hopefully think that their parents are superheroes. However, these hopes are dashed when Alex's father kills a woman with a knife in the library. Nico screams reflexively and their parents, collectively known as The Pride, look towards the one-way glass mirror.
