Synopsis for "Lethal Weapons"

Rictor, Sunspot, and Wolfsbane watch Cable battle Wolverine. In a nearby warehouse, the Mutant Liberation Front holds Boom-Boom, Cannonball, Warlock, and Sunfire captive. Cannonball argues with Dragoness about the MLF’s plan to poison the water supply of world capitals. Misreading his interest as personal, she kisses him before she leaves. Thinking she bewitched Sam, Boom-Boom kisses him herself to snap him out of it, but Sam explains he used Dragoness’s kiss as a distraction to steal the key to their shackles from her headdress. To stop Cable and Wolverine’s fighting, Rictor uses his power to dump out a nearby water tower on them. Logan reveals he and Cable know each other and that the fight was not as dangerous as it looked. Stryfe learns Sunfire and the New Mutants have escaped and sends MLF henchmen to recapture them. Sam’s group ambushes the troops, and Sunfire forces one to reveal where the poison drug is stored. Wolverine, Cable, and the others burst in through a skylight just before the MLF attacks. Cable fights Stryfe as Sunspot and Warlock overpower Sumo. Rictor aids Sunfire against Dragoness, accidentally setting fire to the warehouse. The New Mutants, Sunfire, and Wolverine escape just before it explodes, destroying the drug. Believing Stryfe died in the fire, Cable says the MLF will crumble, and the team can now find Rusty and Skids.
