    Red Robin hears about Celine when he reads her twin sister Claudia's Blog and he travels from New York to Southern California to find her and help. While there Red Robin learns that Claudia who had originally named her sister Skitter unwittingly gave up her location to N.O.W.H.E.R.E. thinking she was helping.

    Later, after the battle, Skitter comes to the Teen Titans aide when it looks like the NYPD would be arresting them for destruction of private property. Skitter "webs" the officers and threatens Jocelyn Lure, their commanding officer. Red Robin stops Skitter before she does something she'd live to regret. Skitter then turns on the Titans but Bunker steps forward and appeals to Skitter's Celine side. She uncharacteristically hugs Bunker and the team heads to S.T.A.R. Labs to get help for Kid Flash.

    At S.T.A.R. Labs Grymm uses his powers to take over Skitter's body and forces her to free him. Bunker and Wonder Girl come to Skitter's aide and frees her from Grymm's control.

    Later, back at Red Robin's penthouse apartment, Skitter changes back to her Celine form and is present when Red Robin asks the team to help free Superboy.
