    Synopsis: Goblyn sits in the cold, unwilling to join Alpha Flight inside.
    Alpha Flight starts putting the base back together. Bedlam and the Derangers are dead, we are subjected to yet another series of mini-flashbacks, and Kara convinces the team to go out and look for Goblyn, who sneak-attacks Walter, Heather, and Jeffries.
    Laura and Goblyn were twin sisters, whose father was anti-mutant and tried to have Goblyn killed in utero. But the autistic Laura hid Goblyn inside herself, until Bedlam freed her. When Kara has just about made friends with the fiend, Alpha Flight arrives and attacks. But Kara intervenes, saving Goblyn's life.
