The Strangers meet together to discuss the issues arising with Pilgrim, an ultra who is intent on destroying the Strangers. Lady Killer then holds a fashion show, unveiling her new line of clothes that are inspired by the Strangers. While at the fashion show, Rafferty arrives to kill an ultra. His victim is Elena LaBrava herself and when he attempts to murder her, he is stopped by Spectral. Rafferty gets an opportunity to escape, knowing he can't take on all of the Strangers, and is able to kill an elderly woman who was on the cable car during the Jumpstart, making her an ultra. Soon after the murder, Pilgrim and Byter arrive to recruit Rafferty, but Rafferty is the first to refuse him. While Rafferty and Pilgrim fight, Atom Bob jumps in and fights Pilgrim. Byter bites Atom Bob, providing a distraction for them to escape.
