Synopsis for "The Ward (Part 1)"Edit

Cyclops requests for Kitty to be the new liaison between himself and Hope's team, because Rogue is occupied enough as it is and because Kitty is the best of all the X-Men.

As all the Lights are training or occupied with casual activities, Cerebra detects a sixth mutant in Berlin, which all the Lights sense. Once they arrive, Hope dispatches both Gabriel and Laurie to head into the hospital where the mutant is, they both fall down as if asleep. Teon retrieves both of them. Kenji then sticks his own mutable tentacles into each of his teammates except Teon to protect them from whatever is inside. Once inside, Teon creates a hole in the ceiling to help them get to the next floor, which Kenji creates fleshly stairs for. But as they ascend, they unaware that the unconscious people on the ground floor are starting to get up. They soon find out that the sixth Light is in his mother's womb and has caused everyone in the hospital to act like zombies, who come charging at the Lights.
