In the town square, the Reverend is busy preaching hellfire and damnation. He is certain that the "visitor" is Satanspawn due to the glowing yellow eye and the smoke coming off his skin. He dubs the visitor the Devil's Herald. It doesn't help that the stranger is speaking gibberish. Moira wants to diffuse the situation and she scolds the crowd for such harsh judgment. Some in the crowd see her point and become a bit more hospitable. Then someone touches the metallic arm to find that it feels alive. New fear is born and the Reverend incites the crowd to kill the man. Cable (for so it is) uses his telepathy to get the citizens to forget their anger and fear and the crowd disperses. Even the Reverend thinks that Moira has claimed Cable as a cousin from England and goes on his merry way. With no one left to condemn him, Cable goes with Moira and Wolfsbane to Muir Island.
