Synopsis for "Back to Basics: Part Three"

After stopping Taskmaster and Black Ant, Spider-Man swings himself and Peter to a rooftop and the two confirm they were split by the Isotopic Genome Accelerator. While Peter finds the severity of their situation, Spider-Man is ecstatic and enjoys their new standing useful for a change. Peter acclimates to his new baseline human status with some difficulty, but feels happy planning a normal life around people he cares for. As Peter and Mary Jane go bowling with Norah and Randy, a news alert about the Tri-Sentinel attack reaches them, but Peter opting to continue bowling surprises Mary Jane. He does so as his Spider-Man duplicate swings to intercept the threat, allowing him freedom to enjoy the little things.

As Peter's bowling game is subpar, Connors texts him for a meet up to discuss his offer. Peter hasn't decided, so he's given one final week to choose, when Connors leads him to the Isotope Genome Accelerator to show him test mouse Horatio, split into two mice I and II from the Accelerator, with the test is to see how the mouse is before and if traits can be divided from the original self. As Peter realizes that skills divide between original and duplicate, he quietly finds he lacks his scientific acumen, leading to ask Connors in the form of a hypothesis. From Connors' hypothesis, even emotional and behavioral traits can be divided, to which Peter reaches a quietly panicked conclusion: Spider-Man has Peter's genius but lacks all sense of his responsibility. Concurrently, Spider-Man reprograms the Tri-Sentinel into his own personal joyride.

Elsewhere, a poacher named Bob kills an elephant and his guide is killed by a thrown knife by an unseen assailant.
