Beast investigates a lab in the complex and discovers that Dazzler has been given a potion that makes her powers go haywire. Beast is caught and given the same potion. In the arena, Dazzler faces a feral Beast and they wage a brutal battle before a cheering crowd. The pair snap out of it before they kill each other but the audience still wants blood. Flynn placates them by killing Longride and taking over the arena.
