and Wolverine contemplates what has happened in the previous few days. He is surprised to find Jessan here and like this. Jessan says that what has happened with her was not expected.
She relates her story of the past. After the Reavers had captured her, they wanted her to work for them. A Reaver named Prettyboy considered her morality, kindness etc. as liabilities and erased them from her mind. But only partiallt did he succeed. That was when the X-Men had interrupted and dealt with the Reavers for good. Jessan was teleported back to her home.
But Jessan had already changed. She had become another person. Amoral, indifferent, carefree. She did not care what happened to her. She saw that her bank was out of business and tried for jobs. But her careless nature negated her image at the interviews. Even then she didn't care. Her short while with the Reavers had earned her new skills. She found her way inside the

They come back to Jessan's main boat. Wolverine senses something and they hop onto the junk. They see all the crew killed, stabbed through the hearts. Wolverine says that Razorfist is behind this. Suddenly Jessan hears a muffled voice. She runs towards a cabin before Wolverine can warn her. She opens the door and finds her captain, before seeing that the door was booby-trapped.
A bundle of explosives blow up in union, leaving little of the ship in their wake.
