As Petra, Riley, and Lex watched helplessly as Hemlock plummet to the bridge below they are unaware that they are being watched.
A figure watches the whole scene from a monitor thinking if he should get involved. He looks over at a picture of Hemlock and her mother having regret about leaving them and with no explanation on why. Looking back at the monitor he makes the decision and types activate protocol Karen.
At that moment
Back at Hemlock’s apartment Clyde’s eyes light up and he goes into his office as he activates his battle armor. He then walks out into the back alley and flies off towards the bridge.
Back at the bridge
Petra is down on one knee drain from the fight with the giant and watching in horror as Hemlock continues to fall. Riley is just now pulling herself up on bridge determine to help Hemlock. Lex is trying desperately trying to get the boots to start working again. Petra sees Riley pull herself up and yells at her “do something.” Riley looks over at Petra and yells “like what I can’t magically stop her from falling.” “Well we just can’t stand here and do nothing” she replies to Riley. “I know” Riley says agreeing. They then both look over at Lex and yell “LEX!” Lex ignores them as she is trying to get the boots to respond. Just then a person in black and chrome armor flies past all three of them and rushes to Hemlock. The three look puzzled as they watch this person head towards Hemlock. Riley being a hot head runs after him leaving Petra behind. Petra also worried forces herself to both feet and follows after Riley. The mysterious person seeing Hemlock about to hit the ground speeds up and gets there just before she hits catching her in their arms. Riley catches up to the person and sees that they saved Hemlock and just stares. Petra catches up with Riley and sees Hemlock in the arms of this stranger and breathes a sigh of relief. She then asks the stranger “who are you.” The stranger just chuckles under his helmet and replies “ladies” and flies off with Hemlock. Both Riley and Petra go to stop him but he’s to fast. They just stand there as Lex finally decides to join them. After awhile Petra asks the two of them “do you think that was Clyde?” Both Riley and Lex look at each other and think about it for a moment then shake their heads saying “no.” Then three of them start to walk off the bridge as they hear sirens in the distances. As they walk off one of the citizens says into a com “sir subject: R1L3Y spotted what are your orders.” There’s mumbling on the other end then he replies “understood sir” and just phases away.
