It's three months after her newfound immortality kicks in, and Nile is dreaming of Quynh. It's not a nightly occurrence, but it's frequent enough that nothing seems strange until suddenly the dream shifts, and it's Nile's mother staring out at her from that iron coffin, while her brother stands beside her, screaming for Nile to "Save her! Save her!"
Nile wakes up sobbing.
Or: Nile hits her emotional breaking point, but Joe and Nicky are there to comfort her.

Four months after the Project Insight disaster, the Winter Soldier shows up in New York. Steve has a ring around his neck and his own demons to face, even if he won't admit it.
In which recovery is not a straight line, but the path still leads home.
Before Eliot can properly freak out, there’s a second flash of light and Quentin is standing there in the middle of the room again, stumbling a bit and looking dazed.
Except it’s not quite Quentin. Not the same Quentin at least. There’s something different about him—his hair is shorter, and he’s wearing different clothes, and his shoulders are somehow even more slumped, and that’s all Eliot has time to take in before Quentin catches sight of him and, with a strangled “Eliot,” launches himself at him.
In the middle of an argument about how to restore magic, the questers receive some very unexpected visitors.
When Eudora Patch tries to identify the junkie currently in the holding cell of the police station, she ends up calling in Diego for help and soon realizes she doesn't know him quite as well as she thought.
"As Vanya would, years later, explain in a book no critic could ever hate as much as her siblings do, Ben’s death is what breaks the Umbrella Academy for good. The cracks had always been there, of course, but his death is the final straw."
Klaus watches the Umbrella Academy crumble, one bitter child at a time.
She opens her locker, giving him a sidelong glance. “So does Buck know you’re-“
The rest of her question gets cut off by a quiet, disbelieving, “Eddie?” and she and Eddie turn just in time for Buck to slam straight into Eddie.
Eddie takes a step back with the force of it but his arms come up around Buck immediately, hugging back just as fiercely. She catches sight of his blinding smile before he tucks his face into Buck’s shoulder and Lucy stares, can’t help it when they’re hugging like long-lost lovers being reunited.
Buck pulls back first, hands still firmly on Eddie’s arms as he jostles him. “You asshole!” he exclaims with a laugh that sounds more than a littler watery. “I was literally at your house last night; why didn’t you say anything?!”
“Wanted it to be a surprise,” he says, voice low and soft in a way that finally makes her turn away to pretend to be busy with her locker.
Five times someone realises Buck is in love with Eddie and one time Buck realises he's in love with Eddie.
“God,” he says, quiet, “I’m pathetic.”
Buck hums again in his sleep, like he’s disagreeing.
“No, it’s okay. I am.”
…or, Eddie has a talk with Buck. Kind of.
And Buck had, honestly, just about kept it together through the drive and the wait before Chim opened the door and this particular bout of nausea. He doesn’t have it in him to hold it in anymore, has to tell someone, so he takes a painful breath and says:
“I slept with Eddie.”
Chimney brightens. “Oh, con—“ he stops himself when Buck whines. “Not congrats?”
in which buck gets drunk and sleeps with eddie. except does he?

“Honey, what’s wrong?” Karen is asking, eyes wide and—yeah, she’s definitely about to start sympathy crying.
Eddie never really has a filter around her, but it’s even worse with a bottle of fancy wine down between the two of them. “Buck would fucking love that planet,” he says, voice wet and miserable and probably a little too loud.
…or, Eddie + Karen + wine + feelings = the most embarrassing confession ever.
