Gunny Bardue takes the Grunts to task, and the looks at Team Kimba. “You threw that match.” He looks at them thoughtfully, and then grins. They don’t quite flinch. “You want to get that target off your backs. I want a good red team. Win-win. Dismissed.”
Team Kimba discusses it in their after-action session, and agree that this is better than what they’d planned.
While Leanne is busy cleaning, Jade animates her new white lion and decides to mess with Leanne. Leanne eventually figures out the game. They chase Danny for a bit and then head for the Crystal Hall for lunch. Hank and Ayla are a bit bemused by the action.
That afternoon, Leanne tells Hank that Nikki has gone to the Grove. Then Toni tells him that Ayla is having some difficulty with Mr. Williams, the history teacher. Then she tells him to talk to Nikki. Leanne goes to the Grove and has a long talk with Nikki. They become better acquainted.
Before breakfast, Headmistress Carson calls Team Kimba into her office for a reaming about the amount of fighting they’d done over the summer. Then she tells them they’re on the Alpha (Hero) track. When they leave, she checks that the school’s “information brokers” were in earshot.
After breakfast, Leanne cleans Mistress’ room. Later, Hank mentions her new perfume, and then Angel does too. Lily finally figures out that Leanne is cleaning her room, and has put a box of dried leaves and plants in her wardrobe. After some angst, Lily sighs and accepts that she’s going to.
