Loophole does the classification exam for her armor's weapons for Special Agent Marvin Teller of the ATF. She isn't entirely happy with the CAT-4 classification. They compromise on CAT-1 (Experimental). There's also a mention of a space company (or possibly person) named Burt Rutan.
Tansy is having trouble with her detention - the Three Little Pests. For their part, the love is reciprocated, and the threesome decide that the reason they got stuck with Miss Bitch is that Loophole and Murphy got her kicked out of the Alphas, so they're due a bit of payback -- like some Essence.
The Lit Chix analyze the blackmail note, figure out that someone was working on a cure for GSD and managed to kill Mrs. Carson's daughter in the process. They decide that they just have to acquire "the dark mind of Edgar" to see what it contains.
The Secret, which appears to be some kind of entity, rouses itself from the abandoned F.O.E. clubhouse where Mrs. Carson's daughter, Shelly, died. It swaps the real bust of Poe for the fake one that's been in the foyer for several months.
Mokele' calls a meeting of C.O.R.E. at the instigation of CORE, who seems to be what's left of a former teacher after an encounter with The Palm, and who is now residing on the network. Attending are Keystone, Nightshade, Omega, Brainflash, Glitter and Paparazzi. Core instructs them to steal one of Jericho's inventions, the Deep Imaging Portable Scanner (DIPS), on the way to stealing a Palm Jacker from the Range 4 cage. Brainflash decides to buy it instead of stealing it.
