Synopsis for "The Beginning of the End part 2"

In the Morlock tunnels beneath Manhattan, the young feline mutant Feral escapes from Masque and his henchmen after refusing to help them attack the city above.  The next day, Cable meets with the former Hellion Thunderbird and invites him to join the New Mutants.  He says he will think about it, unaware they are being monitored by Gideon.  Gideon informs Sunspot he has inherited his father’s company, offers to help him run it, and talks him into leaving Xavier’s School.  Later, Boom-Boom tells the team about Rictor leaving, and Cannonball is upset when Cable refuses to go after him.  In Arizona, Thunderbird returns home to the Camp Verde reservation only to find it in ruins and everyone there dead.  He finds the mask of a Hellfire Club operative and vows revenge.  Back at the school, Sunspot tells Cable about his father’s death and his intent to leave.  In the Danger Room, Boom-Boom and Domino discuss Cable’s leadership style and viewpoint.  Cannonball argues with Cable over the direction of the team with Cable insisting they are fighting a war.  The next morning, Sunspot says goodbye to the team and leaves.  That afternoon, Thunderbird arrives and agrees to join in exchange for help getting revenge on the Hellfire Club.  Feral watches from a ventilation shaft while, in the Danger Room, a young man armed with swords lies unconscious.
