While everyone was sleeping, Moonstone sneaked through the labs but was found by an awaken Hulk. She attacks the giant, who defends himself and defeats her. Moonstone faints and turns back into Karla Sofen. Meanwhile, everyone gathered to see what was happening. And they're surprised by the scene of Hulk grabbing Karla Sofen up high, as if he just killed her. As this is taken place, Thunderbolt Ross starts showing signs of a very bad nervous breakdown.
