Tabitha Smith left to help take care of her sick grandmother, while Felicia Hardy returned from her extended time away overseas, after a brief tete-a-tete with David North. A powers accident while working at a soup kitchen in District X resulted in a powers overload for Adrienne Frost - in order to save her sanity, her sister Emma Frost was forced to put her in a coma after she was transported to Muir Island, for an indefinite period. Garrison Kane and Tandy Bowen were able to say goodbye on the Astral Plane, taking the loss hard. Laurie Collins ended her polyamorous relationship with Wade Wilson, Doug Ramsey and Marie-Ange Colbert, saying her life had gotten too busy for relationships, in typical Laurie fashion.
The poison emerald investigation continued, with the source of the not-so-lucky charms nailed down but further news of a much larger stone still missing, and news that the Sapien League had resurfaced and were planning to use the emerald as a weapon of mutant destruction on the west coast. More urgent matters took priority, however, as Jean Grey's telepathic patient, Parker Matthews came to the mansion after vetting by X-Force as well as Charles Xavier, Emma and David Haller. His 'illness' was revealed to be the parasitic entity the Shadow King, who attacked Jean, Emma and Haller and then disappeared. It was thought he had been defeated, but to be sure, Haller asked Amanda Sefton to recreated the spell she'd used on the previous incarnation, 'flushing' the Astral Plane with magical energy. Amanda did so, recruiting the Frankenberry Cat versions of those originally involved in the spell to assist - Stephen Strange, Illyana Rasputin and Wanda Maximoff, with Haller acting as spotter. The spell worked rather too well - it drew the Shadow King from his hiding spot in Quentin Quire and attacking the group. Jean, Amanda and Haller were nearly overwhelmed, but Quentin managed to regain control of his body long enough to self-destruct, rather than let Jean sacrifice herself for him. It appeared he had died, but days later Jean, Emma and Haller found his psyche adrift on the Astral Plane, still battling the Shadow King. After finally defeating the entity, Quentin "returned" as a hitchhiker in Jean's brain, before Marie-Ange and Rachel Kinross-Dayspring used their knowledge of ectoplasmic bodies to help him build a new one. It worked, with one flaw - Quentin lost his telepathic abilities.
in the wake of the incident, there was a lot of upheaval, especially when it was thought Quentin was dead. Gabriel Cohuelo especially took the 'loss' - and the resurrection - very hard, while Stephen asked his magic tutor Amanda to teach him offensive magic in order to help his friends in the future. She agreed, with the caveat he learn physical defence as well under the tutelage of Doug Ramsey and Domino.
