Irony awakes with Derek in a cell. Confused as to why they are there, they meet Eric Cowell, another evolved human, and discover that the prison in which they are is for "specials" only. The prison's boss, Consuela Hammock, gives a speech which explains the situation further. Irony stays behind when all the other inmates head back to their cells. When he arrives back at the cell, Irony tells Derek that they are going to escape. After Derek uses the passive side of his ability to short out the cell's electric door, they escape through corridors and discover that Officer Bonkin was the one who turned them in. They continue and find the Project DIBOAHA that Consuela had mentioned, who is actually a person, Obadiah. They untie him, but their presence is discovered and guards storm into the room. Irony manages to access a new level of his ability, stopping all the bullets that are fired at him. However, after the brief firefight, an explosion occurs.
In solitary confinement, Irony introduces himself and Derek to Karl and Leckie. As Karl tell their story of how they were captured and placed into solitary confinement, Irony listens. Then, Irony and Karl simultaneously declare that they are going to escape the prison.
Irony learns from Karl that there are five additional prisoners in solitary confinement. After waiting a few days, they discover that the prison's stock of ability-negating drugs has run out, and their abilities have been restored. They release the five other prisoners, and together, try to escape. After their initial attempt is thwarted by Consuela Hammock, Karl saves them and, using a combination of the nine evolved humans' abilities, manage to subdue a guard as well as Consuela herself. One of the evolved humans, Stuart Harrison, is killed in the firefight, but the rest of them, including Irony, escape the prison safely.
They chase him until he is overwhelmed by Irony. Discovering they are both prison escapees and due to a tip off from REBEL, that there are agents waiting for them at the next stop. Tyler manages to reverse the EMP and the group is rescued by Karl who takes them to the sewer, below the warehouse, much to Irony's delight.
Later on that night, some escapees from the prison arrive at the warehouse and Karl buries underground and creates a bunker for all the escapees. Irony questions the escapees asking who sent them, he then accompanies them down to the bunker. When Karl has shown them around Irony makes his way to the surface with Derek, Karl, Tyler and Leckie when they reach the top Leckie is shot by an unknown assailant and Karl makes the ground move to make a wall keeping them safe.
Later, Irony, Derek, and Tyler confront Consuela Hammock, Officer Bonkin, and Bobby. Irony asks who shot Leckie, and Bobby says that it was him, and prepares to shoot Irony as well. However, before he can, he is zapped from behind by Gabriel Bishop, much to Irony's delight. However, Consuela soon spoils the reunion, shooting both Gabriel and Officer Bonkin. Knowing that it is too late for Gabriel, Irony and the team rush to help Officer Bonkin.
After dumping Gabriel's body in a skip, Irony, Elizabeth, Kate, Tyler and Derek are confronted by a mysterious woman who tells them her ability and how they need both Leckie and Frederick to stop an incoming batch of drugs. After deciding to use Elizabeth's ability to transport Leckie out of the hospital, Irony and the gang find Gabriel's body is missing.
He and Elizabeth arrive at the hospital, and after gaining directions from a nurse, head to Leckie's room, 410. Using his ability, he gets past the police on guard, and the pair escape with a sand container, which Elizabeth soon restores to an unconscious Leckie. Relieved, Irony tells the gang they must stop the incoming batch of drugs.
At the docks Irony nervously awaits the arrival of Frederick, Derek, Kate and Tyler when the Mysterious woman approaches. She tells him that he is a good leader but he will know what to do when the time comes. She then explains that she can see the future and has been helping those who keep secret their abilities and disposing of those who mistreat them. However Irony is not listening, instead trying to reassure Elizabeth. The mysterious woman reassures them that they will arrive, which they soon do, apologizing about a hiccup.
Irony and the team assemble ready to destroy the drugs, Irony gives them all jobs to do using their abilities just as John is shot by the guards whom they fight. Irony and Tyler fight more of the guards but are soon surrounded and surrender. Irony then sees that it is Bonkin leading the prison guards who were fired to the Cockney Heroes after revenge.
Irony is shocked that Bonkin would kill him as the two exchange words, but before Bonkin can fire, Frederick attacks him and the guards. Irony then picks up Bonkin's pistol and shoots him to the shock of Tyler. As Frederick and Leckie explain how they combined their powers to save them, Elizabeth comes running towards them saying Consuela is here before she is cut off.
At the docks, Dave Rogers paralyzes the Cockney Heroes and helps Consuela tie them up. When finished he releases them and explains to a bewildered Irony that he only helped Gabriel break Abigail out of prison because, he said he would help him find someone, but instead he just disappeared.
Irony is united by Sarah and begins using his ability, on Richard Gold and Mike Douglas. Shark fires at Irony, but he is saved by Sarah, taking the bullets. Shark then engages Irony in combat, battering him, but as he is throwing punches he begins to feel tired; he falls unconscious along with the rest of his gang, victims of Irony's ability. The victorious Cockney Heroes, including Irony, then return to the underground bunker to celebrate.
