Front page of the Nightly Post Review:

 

Chaos rocks the quarantine area as explosions rip through the eastern section of the city.  Tensions have been on the rise as the alleged supply shipment disruptions have picked up. Citizens interviewed have said that a fight between rival criminal organizations escalated to a fevered pitch. The official report from the city guard says otherwise, with them blaming a poorly maintained industrial site for the explosions. With the heated situation in the quarantine zone, tensions on the east side of the river have never been higher. 

 

After the battle in the Ash to Ash headquarters, the team takes some down time to try and come to grips with what happened

Where are they now? Still fighting? Good. Yeah I know about the fucking robots. I can’t believe Ada of all people was working with Stanton Slayton. Otto may have lost the way, but they never played us like that. I don’t know if we should move on them and finish them off or what. This whole thing is so fucked. Ok, ok, get everyone quick. We’ll, uh, do what we do best. Play it by ear. 

 

The team’s deadly trip down memory lane continues as they are harried by Stanton’s robots, but as the fight draws close, could there be a bigger threat looming?

The fact that a man as smart as Stanton Slayton thinks that he can fight fire with fire is astounding. I mean, it’s great for us, just surprising really. Ego is such a wonderful tool. It’s versatile and effective in way things like fear, or intimidation don’t even touch. With every one of those new, little projects he brings into this cage of a world, I can feel more of my reality seap in. Soon, our little ember is gonna be an inferno, because the only thing that happens when you fight fire with fire is you make the fire worse.

 

Battered and bruised, the team try to collect themselves and find their lost member, but Ada and Stanton have put together something new to stand in their way.

Intercepted message from We Are All In the Gutter But Some Of Us Are Looking At The Stars:

Archive Item 6041

Stanton, why did you not tell me what you were after? I know this thing has always had an agenda of its own. I'm not saying it is misleading you, but I want you to weigh its advice heavily. Treat it like you treat Ada and myself. I do not begrudge you of that weariness. I just urge you to apply it to the crystal.

It all comes to a head as the team pushes into the heart of the Ash to Ash HQ. Plans are made, sass is thrown, and traps are sprung.

I think Ada is too obsessed with the self-made heroes, We Are All in the Gutter. What do you mean pot calling the kettle black? I’m not obsessed with them. Do I have a vested interested in SOME of their members? Yes, but don’t sit there and tell me you don’t as well. We both know that they have value, in one sense or another. Of course, I’m not going to stop their plan, but I feel they are thinking far too little of them. I know first hand what happens when you underestimate their ingenuity.

The gates are stormed as the team moves into the Ash to Ash facility. Meanwhile, some folks make decisions that will lead to far more trouble than planned.

Yes, Stanton. I know for a fact that they are coming. I practically sent them an invite. I think I can handle this bunch. You may have had issues with them, but I’m prepared. What do you mean reinforcements? Really, now? You’ve done what to them? Well, I guess you have been putting that Glittering Oath heist to good work. I have to go. I just got a report that she’s on her way. You were right about one thing: These people are so easy to predict.

 

Ada and the Ash to Ash gang have made their demands, and the team plans to meet them in their own way. Battle plans are drawn, things are confessed, and decisions are made.

So I just point it at them and it makes the change? I don’t have to be near them? Good good. Tonight we’re gonna do something we should have a long time ago. Ash to Ash has been like an animal stuck in the trap of our loyalty to the Sands. We all came from there, and I think we all hoped they would come around to our point of view. We can’t wait anymore. The world is ending around us. So we have to cut ourselves free from all the things holding us back. It will hurt us deeply, but the satisfaction of knowing the we can start our work in earnest will ease the pain.

 

Plots are uncovered as the team cases the crowd of the party. With backroom deals, surprise arrivals, and just a bit of blood, it’s a buffet of fun.

We found the tear yesterday. It lines up exactly across the planes with where we came in. The energy here is so different, though. It’s focused; like it has a want of its own. It’s a radical departure from how my reality ended. There it was simply a force of nature. In the same way an earthquake doesn’t target a building or a city, the energy had the same indifference toward us. Here, though, it almost feels like there is a malice behind it. Stanton says he can push back what’s coming once he gets what he needs. I don’t know what will come for us. We left before that happened. No more running from the void.

 

It’s fashion week y’all. The teams infiltrates a high society party to look for clues on the whereabouts of the missing wrestlers.

What do you need, I’m very busy. You what? You found it? Well, I’ll be damned. Did you find it by yourself or did you have the crew with you? Ok. Well, we’ll need to start moving equipment down there. Map it out if you can, I have a suspicion though, that that will be easier said than done. Did you get the readings I asked for? Oh really now? Those are far more interesting than I expected. Ok, hurry back. There is a lot of work be done. Oh, and We Are All in the Gutter, but Some of Us are Looking at the Stars, you’ll need to kill that crew. We can’t risk a leak now.

The team sets out to find the deer brothers at the behest of some old opponents of Tseer’s. We got some snooping, some dirt digging and some fashion planning.

No, Stanton, they haven’t contacted me. I’m not happy you set me up as the middle man for you little lost and found mission. I don’t work for you, we work together and that is just until we solve this problem. Don't forget that. I need to get odd here, I have work to attend to. Yes, the deer people thing. What? Yes, yeah you can have them once they’ve served their purpose. Should be about a week. Once the trap is sprung, I don’t have any use for the bait. I assume you’ll be at the club tonight? Well, I’ll see you there then.

 

As some members of the team try to forget, other go to great lengths to find something to fight for. Oh, and there is a wonderful family reunion.
