The Blue were still trying to heal the wounds caused by Maylander last time. Cannon is worried about the survivors of Maylander's attack, AND the whereabouts of Aspen. Meanwhile, Chance is called in by Admiral Maylander to be quickly briefed about the mission against the Blue. When Chance saw the picture of Aspen, it reminded him of her and he is having second thoughts about the mission. Chance proceeds to take a jet and goes off to find Aspen. Kiani returns to the blue after Casque leaves very saddened. Cannon attempts to console Kiani, but she just gets upset with him, since he had suspected that Casque was of the Black. Cannon also asks her if the blacks that had surfaced after Casque transformation were the same ones who had taken Aspen. Kiani snaps at on Cannon because she feels he's too focused on "this supposed savior" when he should be paying more attention to all the people of the blue.
