Tessa and Storm explain to their teammates that recent events, the destruction of Genosha and Professor Xavier coming out as a mutant, have been foretold in the diary they have possession of. When they learn that Gambit is wanted for murder in Australia they head to help. Meanwhile Rogue tracks Gambit down to a bar where the two are attacked. Outnumbered and with their powers dampened they flee and come across another murdered crime figure with evidence pointing to Gambit as the killer. The powerless duo are quickly overcome by a powerful stranger called Red Lotus.
