As the Majesdanians strugle to regroup, the Runaways being to fall apart, squabbling over the best course to take. Some advocate direct action, others diplomacy and, distressingly, Karolina considers just giving herself up. How can the Runaways face their biggest treat to date when thy're having trouble facing one another?
