At Whateley AcademyEdit
Nikki bitches to Toni about being hounded by people wanting her to sign with one agency or another. Meanwhile, Don Sebastiano eggs Hekate into setting up to get Fey into the same mind-control thing they've got Cavalier and Skybolt enmeshed in. Back in Poe Cottage, Poise shows up to discuss agents, and gives Nikki a list. Nikki decides to see if she can create some pixie hobgoblins, and the spell gets out of control as the new pixies wax the floor.
The Bad Seeds (Junior Division) prepare to head to Karedonia for their Christmas Vacation. They brush off attempts by several hangers-on to spend their Christmas Vacation with them. FBI agent Douglas Burke, while wondering why he's been stuck with surveillance duty, sees them leave and decides to follow them since he can't get in touch with the rest of the agents posted to this onerous duty.
After lunch, Aquerna takes her algebra exam.
At New YorkEdit
En route to New York, the Bad Seeds start a betting pool about which agency Douglas Burke works for. In Concord, Nephandus outlines a plan to capture one of the "angels" that the Angel of Hell's Kitchen creates. Jobe discovers that the Imperial Jet is laid up for repairs and they'll have to stay at the Diabolik's townhouse. Burke discovers he's lost his cell phone. He accidentally bumps into one of the Seeds. Winter shows his FBI credentials from his wallet, which Jadis confiscates.
In New York: Most of the Bad Seeds decide to stretch their legs and walk over to Hell's Kitchen to see what the setup is. They run into some of Jadis' old school enemies. Then they manage to get a reading on one of the angels together with some angel dust. On the way back, they almost get run over by a frosty guy in white who's being chased by someone who calls himself "Iron Mike." Jadis dumps Iron Mike in the West River. Special Agent Burke decides to follow the man in white, and finds a basement bar named "Superbad."
In New York: Superbad is a bar for bottom-ranked super-villans. Mr. Cool finds out that the gorgeous, wonderful girl he'd seen was Jadis Diabolik, Dr. Diabolik's daughter. Sneaky Pete gives Mr. Cool the bad news: she's jailbait. Sabbath decides to play Mr. Cool by commiserating with him and suggests that he start making a name for himself.
