In San Francisco, Spider-Woman tracks Viper to an abandoned warehouse only to find a recording of Viper. While Spider-Woman battles two vipers, Viper's recording explains she's not Spider-Woman's mother. Spider-Woman surmises that Morgan LeFey tricked both her and Viper. At Steve's apartment, Jack explains that he was rehabilitated by SHIELD but he has nowhere to go. Steve offers his apartment and to help him acclimate to the present. Meanwhile, Viper learns that Spider-Woman escaped her trap. Viper kills the agent that told her and feeds his body to her giant vipers. Later, Cap takes Bucky on patrol until the Constrictor attacks.
