Synopsis for "Gloves Off!"Edit

Starshine goes on a brutal rampage against Wraithkind with little regard for the surrounding humans. Rom tries to soothe her mood and tells her that their presence is required at the funeral of Clairton. Back in the town, outside news reporters arrive and as a processional passes, Bart Garret of WWVS attempts to interview a bystander who directs him to the local cemetery if he wants to find the answers. They arrive at the ceremony and find Rom and Starshine there. They begin to broadcast live and it is then that Rom tells the tale of the Wraith War from the beginning so that all Earth might know of the enemy they faced. Brandy tells of the death of her loved ones and the ruin of Clairton. Rom urges the citizens of Earth to rise up and wage war on the Wraiths. The Wraiths watch the proceedings and ready themselves for total war.
