The Tithing is an ancient guild ceremony, and as the Assassins want the Tithe Collector’s gifts for themselves, they start as the killing members of the Thieves Guild. Jean-Luc, leader of the thieves, thinks that this year it should be Remy LeBeau who receives the gift. Gambit’s brother Henri LeBeau breaks into the mansion, interrupting a Danger Room session, in order to tell Remy what is going on in his home town. However shortly after his arrival he is shot by members of the Assassin’s Guild. Henri’s passing words are that things aren’t always as they seem. Gambit chases the killers down only to be confronted by his previously thought deceased brother-in-law Julien. Gambit fights the Assassins to a stand-still until suddenly Julien lets himself be penetrated by a sword, proving that he can’t be killed.

Against the direct warning not to come to New Orleans, Gambit decides that he has to, as it is family business.

Fun Facts: This issue features the first time we see interaction between Gambit and Arcade.
Comic Summary: Arcade fantasizes how he’ll send out his androids to captive Wolverine. Mastermind, not having completely closed her psi-link with Arcade, senses this odd sensation and asks him what it was all about. Arcade lies about it, causing Martinique to doubt if she can trust her partner. She reminds him that she only agreed to help out because Arcade told her Wolverine killed his assistant, Miss Locke. Arcade tells Martinique to look at his now-destroyed face: Wolverine slashed through it after he was finished with Locke. That is all the proof she needs. Meanwhile, Wolverine realizes that he and Gambit have been played with, and aren’t really in Japan. He wakes a sleeping Gambit up, correcting that he didn’t really kill him earlier. Gambit blows a hole in the wall behind them, and they walk through it. After destroying Arcade’s Wolverine look-a-like androids, the two X-Men meet up with the villain behind all this: Arcade and Miss Locke. With Martinique not gaining the truth out of Arcade’s mouth, she uses her psi-powers to enter his mind, and links Gambit and Wolverine as well. Due to this, they discover that Arcade killed Locke himself so he could set all this up. Martinique hates the fact she was used, and leaves a tormented Arcade behind. She disappears into fog, admitting she’ll have to live with the murders she helped commit for the rest of her live. Mysteriously enough, Wolverine and Gambit wake up on a bench and meet up with Inspector Andrews, who arrests Arcade for his crimes. He lets Wolverine and Gambit go. After visiting Alexandra’s grave, the two X-Men head back home to Xavier’s. Arcade is locked up in a London mental institution, where he has nightmares about Miss Locke operating an elevator.

This issue brings the present day Gambit and The Witness together. It is revealed that Gambit has known The Witness most of his life and as a child Remy would visit the Witness at a local cemetery. It is never said that they are not the same person, but it is never said they are. The Witness has the ability to jump times and places, but Gambit has also shown this ability when his powers are at their strongest level. Even Bishop seems to be confused by the two men.
Comic Summary: Bishop and Remy fly commercial to the Big O; fighter and lover, they are an odd couple. Remy reads Tome magazine, which gives Kelly's death an anti-mutant spin. Remy has Hercule pick them up at the airport and drive them; his boss Mastif owes him a favor. Bishop still thinks they shouldn’t have abandoned the others to Stryfe, but Remy says to trust him. They stop at a beautifully serene cemetery, where Remy played as a child, and enter a mausoleum. Bishop grows impatient and wants answers from Remy. Below ground sits an old friend, the Witness, amid collected super-hero souvenirs. He explains that his power is to remember all possible futures as well as the past. Remy came across him when he was six, but he's been out of touch since he joined the X-Men. Bishop has trouble accepting this is the same man from his own timeline, who he thought was an aged Remy. The Witness says they don't always see what's there, and he points out that Stryfe is behind them on the floor, asking for their help.

Comic Summary: Stryfe begs for help; Bishop smacks him, because his Legacy Virus killed so many. Remy has to pull him off. Stryfe zaps them both, saying he's still powerful, even if he needs their help. Remy says they should stop fighting and go out to a diner; Stryfe telepathically masks their appearances. Stryfe: "You have no right to judge me, Bishop. You did not live my life." He tells them his story. In the future, Rachel Summers cloned him from Nathan as a precaution, since the baby had the T-O virus; he was captured by Apocalypse, who raised him to become his vessel, till he found out he was a clone. His life had no purpose, and Stryfe battled Cable where- and whenever he could, as he only was his imitation. Bishop has enough and blasts him through the wall. Stryfe continues that he was demented when he created the Legacy Virus and wishes he could repair the damage, as he now repairs the wall. He wants protection from Cable, who wants to kill him.

Comic Summary: Bishop and Remy say Stryfe deserves to die; even he admits he brought it on himself; the Witness says he's never seen an X-Man, past or future, kill for retribution. But he's not allowed to tell them the whole future, and that wouldn't be any fun, anyway. Over pie, Bishop asks Stryfe about his symbiote; it is the Bete Noir, power beyond imagination, especially coupled to Bishop. He admits he wanted to use it to destroy the world, and that’s why he possessed the X-Men. The fork in Bishop's hand becomes a techno-organic gauntlet; Remy throws a card, shattering it; Stryfe says it's Cable's work. Techno-organics engulf Stryfe and the Witness, and Bishop and Remy go under trying to rescue them. Suddenly it disappears, and the waitress says Stryfe's twin took him away while they were roughhousing. Remy leaves a necklace to pay for the damages and says Cable will kill Stryfe at a nexus in time, to prevent his return (or else Stryfe could return from death once more). The nearest one is the Witness's mausoleum, and they find that the entire graveyard has been T-O'd.

Comic Summary: Remy and Bishop enter the cemetery, hopping over the T-O and wondering how to stop Cable. They find him standing over Stryfe; he telepathically made him experience all the deaths he caused. He plans to kill him, justifying it as "an aberrant form of suicide," since he's only his clone. He has seen the future and will act to prevent it. Stryfe, in shock, whispers that since Kelly's death, all futures have been disrupted, and nothing is certain. Remy and Bishop try to dissuade Cable, but he forces Stryfe to explain the Bete Noir. It is an ancient force, banished by the Phoenix Force to earth’s core and called by many names including Satan. When Bishop returned from the Chronomancer future, it bonded to him, the perfect host thanks to his mutant power, and it plans first to morally corrupt and eventually to destroy all life. The Witness gives Bishop a shirt similar to Havok's containment suit, to contain it. Stryfe admits he wanted to use the Bete Noir to destroy the world, but says it's just his nature, like Remy is a scoundrel-hero, Cable a reluctant messiah, and Bishop a law-enforcer. None of them can change. Cable is unconvinced and raises his gun, but just then the Bete Noir erupts from Bishop's chest.

Comic Summary: As the Bete Noir erupts from Bishop’s chest, Remy tackles Cable out of the way, but he has a TK force field, as does Stryfe, who claims to be trying to contain the Bete Noir. Cable doesn’t trust Stryfe, but Bishop realizes the Bete Noir is the bigger threat. Once free, it will consume all life and then leave earth to search for the Phoenix force. Bishop asks Remy to kill him, since he is the Bete Noir's anchor in this world. Stryfe has another option: he absorbs it into himself. He apologizes to Cable for those he killed and for everything else, as the power overload shatters his body: character redemption through self-sacrifice.
Cable heads back to the mansion to make sure Stryfe didn't leave any surprises behind. Remy, angry at his insouciance, asks how they can be sure Cable isn't manipulating their minds; he says they can't and leaves.
