In the time the Runaways were in the Dark Dimension, Robert (James Yaegashi) woke up from his coma and is in perfect health now.  He blames Tina (Brittany Ishibashi) for an explosion that almost destroyed the company. He hired Morgan (Elizabeth Hurley) for her marketing skills to save the company. Now they are dating. 

Morgan created a cell phone, Corvus that basically puts a spell on the user. And if a user breaks his or her phone, they get really, really, REALLY upset.  She recruited Geoffrey (Ryan Sands) to help distribute the phones. He’s also building the Corvus headquarters in his old neighborhood to build the economy. 

Speaking of Geoffrey, he is living with Tamar (Ozioma Akagha).  He turned to her for companionship after Catherine’s (Angel Parker) death and Alex’s (Rhenzy Feliz) disappearance. 

Leslie (Annie Wersching) returned to the Church of Gibborim. She says in light of recent events, she realized there’s so much they don’t know about the universe and it doesn’t hurt to look for answers.  A lot of people showed up at the church after Karolina (Virginia Gardner) revealed her light. 

And Dale (Kevin Weisman) is living off the grid…in the courtyard at the Church of Gibborim.  He feels useless and unwanted after Gert (Ariela Barer), Molly (Allegra Acosta), and Stacey (Brigid Brannagh) all disappeared. So he is contemplating where his life went wrong.  

Stacey and Victor (James Marsters) went back home to empty houses.  Victor asks her to consult on a project and Stacey happily agrees. When she gets to the Stein’s lab, Victor re-introduces her to Janet Stein (Ever Carradine), in the algorithm. 

Nico (Lyrica Okano) searches for a way back to the Dark Dimension to save Alex.  She’s pretty sure Morgan can help her, but Nico doesn’t know how to communicate with her.  Karolina thinks talking to Morgan is a bad idea and suggests talking to Tina instead.

The Runaways go to brunch and befriend a guy named Max (Elliot Fletcher) who gives them all free Corvus phones. He also makes quite an impression on Gert.  And that makes Chase (Gregg Sulkin) really jealous. 

Nico asks Tina for help to return to the Dark Dimension. Tina considers Alex a lost cause.  Nico says she will ask Morgan for help and Tina doesn’t want Nico to have any contact with Morgan.  Nico gets a text from Robert and leaves to meet him.

Karolina and Molly go to the Church to look for Leslie.  They run into Vaughn (Cody Mayo) who introduces Molly to Bodhi (Martin Martinez). Bodhi lives at the Church and keeps smiling at Molly.

When Nico meets Robert, Morgan shows up too. She reveals that Nico let her out of the Dark Dimension. Nico also notices that Robert is wearing a Crow necklace, a gift from Morgan that keeps him enchanted with her. Mogan insists that she wants to help Nico find Alex, but it’s up to Nico to ask for it. 

Gert and Chase walk home, she is so distracted by her phone that she almost walks in front of a car.  Chase pulls her back off the street, causing her to drop her phone and cracked the screen. Gert gets really angry with Chase, and he promises to fix the phone 

Molly helps Bodhi in the kitchen.  She overhears someone complain about Dale the Fail making Brie.  Molly finds his tent and confronts him about hiding away from everyone. He says he’s cleansing himself of his old Pride days and thinks everyone is better off without him. He says he will stay out of her way, but promises he was only trying to protect her from the truth. 

Molly takes the opportunity to get the truth about her parents. He confirms that the Hernandezes were the ones who picked out the sacrifices for Jonah. Dale gives her a hug and is proud that she was able to forgive Leslie. He says Stacey is there yet. Molly doesn’t know what he’s talking about, but Dale won’t elaborate.  

Chase finds a feather inside of Gert’s phone and removes it.  It causes the phone to disintegrate.  Nico examines the phone and feels Morgan’s presence in it.  Chase thinks the phone is making Gert act weird. He says the feather is evil and it goes all the way to the top, all the way to Max. 

Nico tells them Morgan is in their world now. She works for Wizard. She says Morgan wants to train Nico on how to use her power to save Alex.  Karolina thinks that’s a horrible idea. Nico compares it to when Karolina asked Jonah for help, except Nico is being honest about it. 

Nico takes the feather and puts it in a bowl of water. She uses the staff to reveal the feather’s purpose.  They see Alex in the Dark Dimension. Nico turns dark so Karolina pushes the bowl off of the table and says Nico can’t control her magic.  Nico gets upset saying Karolina doesn’t know a thing about her magic.

Chase wants to get rid of Gert’s phone because it makes her violent. They hear voices coming from the phone.  Gert realizes that she’s acting strange. And she’s psychically connect to a dinosaur and that could turn bad.

Nico tells them about her father’s party and plans to talk to Morgan.  Chase and Karolina think they should all go and leave the Corvus phones at home for their own safety.    

Gert finds Max at the party and Chase has some questions for that guy. He interrogates Max about the party. Max lets it slip that the phones are going worldwide. Gert interrupts the interrogation and ask Max to get her food.  She pulls Chase to the side and says they need to talk.

Robert announces that Morgan is the new CEO of Wizard.  Tina arrives and makes a scene. She threatens to send Morgan back to where she came from. She tries to put a spell on Morgan, but Morgan’s coven surrounds them.  So Tina slaps her. Robert has security remove Tina. As she leaves, Tina tells Nico not to let Morgan have the staff. 

Chase and Gert talk about how each of them are acting crazy.  Chase is bothered because he told Gert that he loved her and she didn’t say anything.  Gert thought he only said it because they were in danger. Chase says he still loves her.  Gert says they were thrown together under intense circumstances. They owe it to each other to take a breather and see who else is out there for them.  Max interrupts them, ending their conversation. Gert pulls him away and Chase is left standing alone.

Nico runs into Geoffrey and Tamar. Geoffrey says he doesn’t want to fight anymore. He’s worried about Alex and asks if he’s okay.  Nico says that Alex left them. She knows where he is and she will do whatever it takes to get him back.

Karolina stumbles upon a secret room where Morgan’s friends are dancing around, but their faces are demon-like.  Morgan finds her and says she knows Karolina doesn’t want to lose Nico to the Darkness…to Morgan. But Nico has been Morgan’s for a long time.  

Gert explains her relationship with Chase to Max. She also tells him about the feather in the phone and how it made her act violent.  Max is surprised to hear that. She leaves him to find her friends.  One of Morgan’s minions, Bronwyn (Scarlett Hefner) overheard their conversation.  She mind wipes Max so no one will find out what they are doing with the phones. 

Karolina tells Nico there is a ceremony going on. Nico gets angry that Karolina is making the wrong assumptions about witchcraft.   Karolina tells Nico about what she saw in the Dark Dimension.  She says Nico as consumed with darkness. If Nico continues down this path, Karolina can’t go with her.  Nico realizes that Karolina isn’t scared for her, she is scared of her. She leaves with Morgan. 

Morgan and her coven perform a spell over Nico, releasing her from her fear that keeps her from tapping into her true power.  Nico becomes a part of the coven. They celebrate with dancing and champagne.
