Then she talks to Sapphire about her period; Sapphire gives her some medicine. Then Sapphire tells her that she used to be a snake-woman, and really wants to go back to it, so Amy shares that she used to be a boy.
That evening, at dinner, Alyss is feeling a bit homesick. Amy mentions being a bit worried about her mother, and then Sapphire talks a bit about Home, a very small town in Montana which is mostly mutants with GSD. Amy makes notes for devises while she eats. On the way back to Poe and Hawthorn, they run into Gravmax and Iron harassing a couple of students. A fight ensues.

In Powers Lab, Amy is a Exemplar, so she heads for the Devisor lab and spends time fabricating parts she's going to need the next time she's a devisor. On the way back, she rums into Gravmax. She gets rid of him easily because there are too many witnesses for him to try anything. Then she has a burnout. Darqueheart walks with her back to Hawthorn.

In powers lab, Amy is in devisor mode, so she goes to the devisor lab and builds her new weapon using the parts she's already fabricated. On the way back, she's intercepted by Gravmax, which gives her a chance to test it out. She asks Sapphire for a cup of venom for the needles. She shows it to Caitlin, who likes the gun.
