On Muir Island, while Lockheed is terrorized by the horde of 'Bamfs' that have infested the research center, Kitty Pryde and Kurt Wagner spar in the Holo-Suite within a pirate scenario. They briefly discuss Kitty's doubts about her relationship with Pete Wisdom, when the Bamfs take over the controls, endangering the pair, until Wisdom enters the control booth and shuts down the simulation.
Outside, on the grounds, Meggan and Piotr Rasputin are challenged by the tension between the two of them. Douglock searches for Lockheed, who has again gone missing. The Bamfs try to dislodge a boulder upon him, but he is rescued by Piotr.
Inside, as Kitty and Wisdom broach the subject of their disintegrating relationship, the Bamfs attack the team, revealing themselves and their alliance with the demon Nightmare.
