While the X-Men try to keep Stryker and his purifiers from killing Cable and Hope, Cyclops sends the New Mutants to face Hodge's heavily armed Right soldiers and prevent them from joining the fight.

Meanwhile, back in Utopia, Cyclops tries to figure out how Bastion is tracking Cable and Hope so efficiently.
