At the same time, Sabretooth and Psylocke try to deal with the apparent loss of Mystiq while preparing to embark on a search and rescue mission to recover Rogue, unaware that they've already been caught up in an enemy's cunning and deadly web. Instead of a rescue, this new team of Exiles may be heading straight for disaster.
