At the OSI Hover-Quarters, the team returns with their prisoners. The X-1 is aboard and Hatred is there to receive his nomolestol treatments and determine why it is interacting with the super-soldier serum he received back in 1988. Rusty, Hank, and Dean are there with Hatred to lend moral support, and Hank is still wearing the female SPHINX strength suit he acquired.
Brock checks on the team strip-searching Monstroso, but they admit that it's going to take them awhile. He then checks on Molotov, who he met when he was undercover at the 1986 Olympics looking for the Siberian Husky, a KGB assassin and Molotov's partner. Molotov managed to kill Brock's first partner while Brock killed her father.
The IA point out that Brock has been involved with Molotov in the past. And that Hunter was closer to her when he infiltrated her kill cadre posing as a woman. They suspect that Brock busted Molotov out and he assures them that he was in the interrogation room.

Brock interrogates Monstroso, who assures him that he won't be staying long. Monstroso figures the Guilt will be coming to dispose of them and offers them everything that OSI wants to know. Brock wants information on the Sovereign, the real Sovereign rather than David Bowie. Monstroso also offers information about the Council of 13, the true masters of the Guild. He had pictures of them on a hidden camera in his ring but all of them were obscured. The only one Monstroso could identify was the Clue Clown. As they talk, the alarm goes off and Brock discovers that Molotov has broken out.
Amber checks out Molotov before leaving for a weekend trip with Headshot. Headshot finally comes by and discovers that Molotov had escaped, leaving Amber in her place.

The scientist in charge, Dr. Volcano, has several primos--psychics with precognitive abilities--in storage. One of them gives a message that there will be an explosion and a golden lady escaping. Dean is shocked that they are trapped in the tanks. When the alarms go off, Dean takes advantage of the confusion to free them.
Disgusted, the IA tells Dean not to waste their time.

By the time he gets out, she's taken out the rest of his team. She sets off the explosives that she's planted around the hover-quarters and the floating base goes out of control.

Hunter comes out and orders Brock to stand down as he prepares to throw Molotov into the rotor. He explains that it was a test and the only people she killed were double-agents within the OSI. Hunter paid Molotov more to do what needed to be done. He then goes back to the control center and they watch as Brock tosses the empty armor into the rotor.
