PRIDE held a gala in the Wizard Headquarters as a fundraising event for the school they pretended to be building in the PRIDE Construction Site. All the members of PRIDE attended this event, along with the Runaways, who secretly intended to hack into Wizard's servers so that they could retrieve the video showing their parents performing a Rite of Blood. Hundreds of guests attended the gala in the building, applauding the members of PRIDE. Jonah also came to the gala, hoping to meet with his daughter Karolina Dean.
Gert Yorkes successfully distracted the security guard Earl long enough for Alex Wilder and Nico Minoru to take the elevator and go to the servers room, but Wilder figured out that he could not hack into it, meaning that they had to directly access Tina Minoru's office. Meanwhile, Dean, who struggled with her attraction towards Nico, isolated herself and drank on the building's roof, where she was joined by Chase Stein.
Although Dean almost fell from the roof, she dropped her Church of Gibborim Bracelet when going over the edge, which activated her powers and enabled her to fly back onto the roof, where Chase, relieved, kissed her, much to her surprise, with the whole scene being witnessed by Molly Hernandez. Chase and Dean returned to the gala, where the members of PRIDE delivered their speech. However, when Victor Stein got to speak, he caused a scandal by revealing his wife Janet had an affair with Robert Minoru. Victor then fainted on the stage due to his brain tumor.
While Victor was taken to a quiet room in Wizard Headquarters, Tina went to her office to cry alone, unaware that Alex and Nico were hiding right behind the desk, surprised by Tina's behavior. Jonah joined the other members of PRIDE beside Victor, injecting him with a serum to help him recover. Victor quickly got better and reunited with his family in the gala. Alex and Nico also returned on the ground floor, having successfully downloaded the encrypted file they searched.
As the guests progressively left the gala, Jonah finally encountered Dean and Hernandez had a conversation with Catherine Wilder in which she inadvertently hinted that she saw PRIDE performing their ritual. Stacey Yorkes then arrived and left with Hernandez.
