Summary from now-defunct webpage at

We see Tech-9 and Masquerade face-off in a strange way. Tech-9 is starting to act strange. We see Kwai again as she travels to her homeland, the Kingdom of Kwen Lun. Dogg escapes from the S.Y.S.T.E.M. chumps. Kwai meets with her friend, the Monkey King. We learn that she needs to ask her father, the Jade Emperor for another life. But she is sentenced to death without reincarnation. The Monkey King finds the Syndicate.
