Synopsis for the 1st Story
In New York City, Rayna Masters reflects on her relationship with Cray as she finishes dressing for his funeral. At Halo, Grifter recalls watching Cray die on the Moon to stop Damocles. Despite Savant’s protests, Cash takes a Halo motorcycle and leaves. At a safehouse in the Rocky Mountains, Backlash reluctantly agrees to let his daughter Jodi come with him to Cray’s funeral. Meanwhile, the media broadcasts Stormwatch’s denials of any connection between the events on the Moon and those in Gamorra. On an eastbound flight, Alex Fairchild and John Lynch discuss Cray’s sacrifice while the members of Gen 13 cope with recent events. Upon their arrival in New York, the former members of Team 7 meet at the Drop Zone strip club and make a toast to their fallen comrade. Later, they, Gen 13, and others including Sister Mary attend the funeral in upstate New York. Everyone then follows to the cemetery where Cray is buried next to his late ex-wife, Gaby. Cray’s brother and Rayna eulogize him. After everyone departs, Phil Chang teleports in with an assistant and inscribes an epitaph on Cray’s headstone: “Forgive the hero, you who would have died”.
