After the kids and Scott disband, Dani admits that she needs Emma’s help to find the final member of her squad: Kevin Ford. In the garage, Josh and Rahne kiss, and soon they talk about Josh being a New Mutant, just like Rahne was all those years ago. Due to a reminder that she is a teacher, and should act like one, Rahne decides that they should break up, much to Josh’s dismay. Emma and Dani use Cerebra to track Kevin down, and eventually find him working in a junkyard in Staten Island. Dani tries to get him to come back to the school, but Kevin really doesn’t want to hear it from her.

When they arrive back at the school, Kevin agrees to join Dani’s squad, mainly because of Laurie. Laurie and Sofia are happy to have Kevin back, though there is some animosity between Kevin and Josh. Dani asks Kevin for a suggestion for what his codename should be, and he decides on Wither. The leadership of the squad is the next issue to be discussed, and though Dani chose David, he declines, and Sofia takes the job.

Right about then, Nori also arrives with the information, and they head off to the hedge maze. Unfortunately, they find Santo blocking the way, and he tells them that the rest of the Hellions have already gotten into the maze, and the New Mutants lose.

Comic Summary: The remaining staff and students at the Xavier Institute gather to mourn those who died in the attack against a busload of former, de-powered students. They bury fifteen of the students themselves. Of the forty-two who died, these are the students whose parents would not take them back even to lay them to rest. Among the dead is Brian Cruz AKA Tag. As the funeral progresses, each member of the New X-Men team recalls the explosion and the loss of life they witnessed days earlier and deals with their grief. Sadness, anger, guilt and disbelief are felt by all to varying degrees as they recall the tragedy. The X-Men question O*N*E’s lack of response but Val Cooper places the blame on Emma Frost. Emma deals with her grief by pushing the New X-Men to train and be prepared for the next attack which she feels is inevitable. Meanwhile, Icarus continues to refuse treatment for his wounds and Rev. Stryker plots his next attack and identifies an Omega threat among the remaining students.
