At Terminal City, the new transgenic, who is apparently from the Arctic Division, is too hot. The leader, who is apparently from the Desert Division, is sitting next to a space heater. They argue about which is more difficult, the heat or the snow. Runty tries to lighten things up, and fails. Max and Alec walk in and say that they need to get the equipment to Logan right away. Alec offers to take it over, but Max quickly shoots him down, saying that she'll get Biggs to do it when he arrives. Alec doesn't understand why Max won't let him do it. Max finally admits to telling Logan that she and Alec are a couple. Alec asks why she has to drag him into it, and Max says that it was the only way to push Logan away. Alec says that of course she blamed him, because he's "just the kind of guy to steal another guy's girl." Max asks him not to be mad. Alec says that he has nothing to do with her relationship with Logan, and he's not going to be the bad guy. He grabs the equipment and takes off.
At The Dreaming, Logan tries out some new leg braces. This set apparently has pneumatic pumps or something, because he can jump really high in the air. Then he uses his foot to split a piece of wood for the fire. Alec walks in and says that he thought Logan didn't need the braces to walk anymore. Logan says that he doesn't. Alec asks if they are "an enhancer," and Logan says they are, and then asks why Alec is there. Alec says he brought some equipment. Logan is very short with him. Alec brings up his relationship with Max. Logan knows about it, and doesn't really want to hear it. Alec says that Logan has it all wrong. Logan says that he and Max have been through some rough times, but he never gave up, and thought they would get through it, but now he thinks he's been selfish, because maybe Max should be with another transgenic who can understand what she is going through. He adds that it never mattered to him what Max was or where she was from. Then Logan asks Alec to treat Max right. Alec walks out.
At Crash, OC tells Max that Logan was bound to find out the truth about her "relationship" with Alec sooner or later. Alec walks up and OC walks off, ordering Alec not to make Max feel any worse. Alec sits down. Max asks if he's going to tell her what happened. Alec reveals that he didn't say anything. Max thanks him and asks why he changed his mind. Alec says that she had to say something, only she didn't push Logan away; he let go because he wanted Max to be happy. Max looks sad. Alec tells her not to start crying, because Logan told him to take care of her. Alec notices some new marks on Max's wrist and asks about them. Max hadn't noticed them before. They both watch Max's wrist as the marks seem to get darker and more prominent.
