Alex has gotten comfortable in Compton and with Livvie. Darius, meanwhile, delivers Alex to Geoffrey in exchange for the site that PRIDE is drilling on.

Nico’s proposed training exercise goes bad in a hurry. Molly sleeps through it after being out all night. Chase has fixed the fistigons, but still can’t control them. Gert is in pain and withdrawal without her meds. Nico is still figuring out the staff, getting it to work one minute and not the next. Only Karolina shows any real mastery over her abilities.
The team springs into action when Alex calls Nico. She overhears that Geoffrey is taking Alex to the airport to get him away. The kids hotwire the car Chase has been restoring and ambush Geoffrey at the airport, freeing Alex. Back at the team’s base, Nico asks Alex why he called her. Alex says that she’s still #1 on his speed dial. Nico asks where Alex has been and the two bond over video games while Alex tells her all about his adventures over the past few days in Compton and about Livvie.
The good times are short-lived. Molly goes back out on the street and deals with the same pimp again, only this time someone is in the alley watching. When Molly returns to the lair, Gert berates Molly for going out alone and looking for trouble. The guy hiding in the alley follows Molly in, announcing that he likes their set up. He introduces himself to the group as Topher.
