Rogue stops the train; it was stopping anyway, under the UN building, which was the intended target. Sarah smells a rat: the Ultimatum wants to unite the world, so they should like the UN. She runs off to find the real bomb, and Kitty follows. They find Flag-Smasher on Wall Street and quickly drop him. But he wonıt defuse the bomb.
