    Synopsis: Louis remembers being suddenly attacked by Hardliners in a bar in Halifax. By reflex, he used his mutant power, previously kept secret, to beat them off. But the people in the bar were more afraid of him than of them, and his life was never the same.
    Heather wants more info on Kyle from Clarke; he warns her about Hagon's bill in parliament that would register all super-powers with the government.
    Wyre explains to Kyle that he let the Secret Empire use his DNA to create monsters. Kyle wants his help finding out his original identity.
    Thunderball is on a rampage in Toronto, and Heather dispatches part of the team, including Nemesis, to bring him down. A Hardliner explains that they had tried to attack him, which just ticked him off.
    Clarke tells Heather and Kyle how he had been found in the remains of the Secret Empire base that Wyre wrecked. The military used drugs to tame his animal impulses but keep his enhanced abilities, called him Wild Child, and forced Walter to accept him into Dept. H. Kyle announces his new name.
    Aurora uses her light to hypnotize Thunderball. Then the rest of the Wrecking Crew shows up.
