As he searches for an apartment in the East Village, Logan chases off a couple of thugs harrassing a woman, Kirstin, and her wheelchair-bound boyfriend, Clive. In thanks, she tells Logan the apartment next to theirs is available. Down the block, a mime is lured into a basement where he encounters a red-eyed being.
Logan checks in by phone with Jean Grey at Xavier's mansion, then meanders through his new neighborhood.
Some time later, Logan accepts a construction job from Helen Bach, a friend of Kirstin.
The workday done, Logan and Helen walk toward the apartment, when they see his motorcycle being vandalized the same two thugs from before, but this time, their eyes glow red. Logan and Helen overcome the pair, then Logan rolls his Harley into his apartment where he finds the possessed mime jugling knives.
