    Synopsis: Wolverine, having smuggled into Canada following someone, knocks out the mounties that catch him. He feels he has to repay a debt.
    Windshear, hired by Roxxon to tame their out-of-control basement, fails.
    Wild Child has gone wild, and when the teams chase him, he injures Laura. Flashback: the Canadian Parliament decided to drop all charges against Alpha Flight and reinstate Dept. H. Then they disbanded Gamma Flight to make them Alpha's training team, which put Wild Child on a rampage, angry about being discarded.
    Michael, Elizabeth, Walter, and Aurora try to find Judd, and get nowhere until Walter threatens hospital workers, and Elizabeth and Michael cast spells to see the past. Judd was abducted out of the hospital.
    Roxxon imports Jeffries to fight their basement. It plugs into him and attempts to communicate, he goes into the cybernetic mind, and it spits him back out, screaming. He says there's an angry man inside the computer, which has taken over Roxxon's systems all over the world.
    Wolverine catches Wild Child in a park and dumps him at Heather's feet.
