Concluding from the last issue, Scarlet Garcia reports that Sonic and Sam Speed have found Tails and Captain Westwood inside the robot that attacked Station Square and has now crashed in the Station Square State Park. The President sees the situation on TV and demands to see Sonic, Tails and the captain immediately. Vanilla, watching the scene with Cream and Cheese thinks it's too dangerous to live in Station Square, even if Emerl protects her. Lindsey Thorndyke arrives at the Thorndyke Mansion and plans to take Vanilla, Cream, Cheese, Chris and herself on their private island for a relaxing vacation. Vanilla declines, but Lindsey won't take no for an answer and it'll give them all mother/child time.
Meanwhile at GUN headquarters, Sonic and Tails are being interrogated by the officers. Captain Westwood claims that Sonic and Tails were using the robot to attack Station Square with Eggman. Captain Westwood won't admit that he knew about the ship and didn't report it. Chris, Cream and Cheese look around town, seeing no one in sight. Vanilla and Lindsey find the same Talisman that was in Sonic X episode 19 at the mansion and ghosts begin stalking them from behind. Chris, Cream and Cheese are also confronted by ghosts that have possessed everyone in town and flee back to the mansion. Sonic and Tails have been arrested by G.U.N and end up in the same jail cell as Doctor Eggman.
Chris, Cream and Cheese have locked the rest of the ghosts out of the house, but the ghosts have now possessed both Lindsey and Vanilla...
