After classes, Lily and Hank go statuing. Then they spot a group of four black clad kids creeping toward Shuster Hall. Lily throws common sense to the winds and calls the rest of her team for backup. They mix it up with the kids, who turn out to be the Masterminds, who are intent on stealing something called a M.C.H.
All nine of them get hauled before Mrs. Carson, who gives the Masterminds a week's detention in Hawthorne, and puts S.T.A.R. League Junior , as well as Hank on call with Security for two weeks. Note: I’m not sure how Hank is going to do both detentions at the same time.
A not very happy day in the life of Patrick "Folder" Ollie Styles, who weighs 360 lbs and is an avowed pacifist who gets picked on by one Anvil. Anvil has just been caught in the act by Lancer, who turns him in to Security. Folder is not happy about this; he thinks that Anvil is a bully who will just retaliate when he gets out of detention. (He's right). He spends some time chatting with Bronco and Silo (Rednecks 'r Us). Then he goes to the Fab Lab in the Llewellyn Annex (the Devisor Labs Building). This is presided over by Professor Tejal Choudhari , Ms. Metal herself, and a notorious speed freak in anything with wheels. Or not. Then he goes home to Melville, where he shares a room with Mule (Grunts team). A bottle of Motrin, a piece of hate mail and a bit of byplay with the new trash can under Mule's desk. He turns the hate missive into the thousandth paper crane he's done with it (the number 1000 is important), does his magic shtick to make it fly and then faints. Deadeye finds him and takes him to the infirmary. In the infirmary they determine it's poison and then call in Jobe. The Grunts decide to trace where the poison came from. Lots more action, ending when Jobe, who gets infected himself, manages to shoot the invisible assailant.
Outside of Denver. Jamie wakes up, has a couple of excellent meals, and meets Dr. Jacobs . He's a psychiatrist who went to a private school in New Hampshire. He's there to finish an assessment and help her adjust. That afternoon, the doctors show her some of the x-rays. She's healing abnormally quickly.
