Jean is spending the weekend with her roommate Misty Knight, along with Misty's boyfriend Danny Rand and her partner Colleen Wing, at Danny's beach house. Misty remains uneasy about Jean's newfound increase in power, a sentiment Jean shares. Suddenly, Jean telepathically senses a family in danger, and flies out over the ocean. Misty follows in Danny's boat and discovers a shark circling the water where Jean entered. Misty fights off the shark, after which Jean emerges from the water and reveals that the family in danger was a pod of dolphins. Misty is incensed that she risked her life for a group of animals, but when Jean allows her to telepathically hear the dolphins' thoughts, she gains a newfound respect for the balance of nature and all things in it, including Phoenix.
