Walker is returned to L.A. and finds Krispin who is registering his power. Walker and Pilgrim clash over whether Morrison is real or the delusion of an insane SuperShock. Powers begin dropping out of the sky in an apparent spree killing, and Pilgrim is exposed to powers residue. Calista flees into a dampener cell where Walker and Zora inspire her to return to fight SuperShock. Pilgrim follows a lead to The Ghost who, unable to beat SuperShock, has engineered his self-destruction. The story is intercut with flashbacks of Walker having lost his powers and being invited by Cross to join the new Powers Division.
