Synopsis:
Magenta flies over New York, talking to Dr. Damalis over the radio. Dr. Damalis remembers the events leading up to the emergence of the Magenta persona in Frances Kane. Thunder and Lightning are in the Park. Magenta finds them and attacks. They run from a volley of metal into the woods. Looking for them, Magenta stumbles upon two men who try to mug her. She controls the metal in their knives to stop them. Thunder and Lightning find her, telling her to fight Dr. Damalis' brainwashing. Instead she stabs Thunder with the knives. Enraged, Lightning electrocutes her, knocking her down. Dr. Damalis sees that Magenta is losing and decides to activate her other sleepers, starting with the Atomic Skull. Magenta gains the upperhand, however, when she traps Thunder and Lightning in metal cable, ever-tightening it. Yet Thunder asks her why she is taking orders from an ordinary human being, which causes Frances Kane to regain a little control. Dr. Damalis looks for Albert Michaels but finds only Tony Rocco, new chief of security, who says he's been bugging her office and knows what she's doing. He's already had Michaels sent to Belle Reve. Magenta then bursts in. She is about to kill Dr. Damalis when Thunder and Lightning catch up, trying to stop her. She then tries to kill them all. Tony Rocco, however, plays a tape of Dr. Damalis saying "Rumpelstiltskin," and Magenta is finally free. The danger is over. Tony and Magenta are having lunch when a security officer interrupts. Dr. Damalis has escaped. She said only two words in her one phone call: "Snow White." Looking through the hole that Damalis escaped through, Tony and Frances wonder who "Snow White" could be. The end?
