Synopsis for "Shades of Gray!"
Changeling rejects the attempts of his teammates to talk about the Terminator's trial, and returns home to find that, due to his behavior in court, Steve Dayton is angry with him and Jillian's father has forbidden her to associate with him. In prison, Slade Wilson arranges through Wintergreen to learn that his ex-wife and son have been cleared of charges by Interpol and to have his jail sentence suspended. Before he can be released, however, he is attacked a night in his cell by a maddened Changeling. When their skirmish takes them into the prison yard, Changeling breaks off the fight, promising to return. The next day, he arranges to meet the Terminator in a battle to the death. The mercenary derails Gar's plans by appearing at the arranged site as Slade Wilson, rather than in costume as the Terminator, and by refusing to fight back. Unable to bring himself to murder an unresisting opponent, Changeling reluctantly agrees to talk with his enemy instead. Wilson relates how he first encountered Tara Markov when she undertook an assignment he had refused: the murder of African tribal leader King Tawaha, who had taken care of Gar after the deaths of his parents years before. Later, the Terminator took Terra in as a partner, but quickly discovered that the girl was an incurable psychopath. Wilson also asserts that his son Joseph is innocent of involvement in any criminal actions. Changeling finds himself believing Wilson's statements despite his earlier convictions to the contrary. Their conversation over, he allows Wilson to leave without trying to stop him.
