The Exiles make it to the home of the Timebroker and find it is an immense pink crystal palace. They discover their fallen friends held in stasis in the walls. They also find that the whole place is run by sentient bugs and the Timebroker isn't an actual person at all. Evil Hyperion has busted out of stasis and taken over the place which explains why things have been bad for the Exiles of late. The team battles the bad guy but he kills Holocaust and absorbs his power.
