Uncanny X-Force #6 Spoilers

Spoilers: In the physical plane, Cluster asks Psylocke's help to rescue Fantomex from Weapon XIII. Betsy says no, not after everything that happened. Spiral interrupts the conversation and teleports Psylocke elsewhere. She tries to convince Betsy that Ginny has given her a purpose and that she just want to rebuild her life. Psylocke has a hard time believing it and still holds a grudge against Spiral for the bionic eyes/body transfer incidents. Spiral says that they're not any different since Mojo has also destroyed and twisted her. Betsy decides to let Spiral go.

Psylocke holds a psychic conference with Wolverine. Logan orders her to go back to the school for her mission was a disaster and Spiral is still on the loose. Wolverine criticizes Psylocke for being off her game especially now that the stakes are too high and predators like Spiral should be dealt with. Betsy tells him that she let Spiral go and realizes Logan sent her on this mission because of the bad blood between them. Psylocke accuses him of manipulating her into doing the dirty work for him and calls him on his hypocrisy  The argument heats up, but the Demon Bear interrupts them. Betsy explains the bear got attached to her and is now hiding in her mind. Psylocke cuts the conference, upsetting Wolverine even more. Betsy wakes up in the physical plane, where Storm and Puck are still looking after the comatose Bishop. Cluster is with them. Psylocke tells her she will help her rescue Fantomex.

Well, we're finally getting somewhere. It's really nice to see Betts confronting logan and being the badass she suposed to be with the kind of attitude that fits her.
It's the best issue of this series so far. Thank god!

Much better issue. Psylocke'd tone has improved dramatically - it sounds much more like her character: dignified. She didn't sound as dignified in the earlier issues, it was weird. I really like the Demon Bear idea. Pretty cool. Spiral also sounds much better. This is the first issue that feels like a solid, "full" issue.

Let's just hope that this cover artist does no more covers for this book.

Great improvement, indeed. I just hope it isn't coming too late.

The conversation between Psylocke and Spiral finally shows us that these women aren't so different from each other as Betsy would like to believe. It was conducted very well by Humphries, by the way.

Indeed this was probably the best issue since issue one and two. Dug the Psylocke/Wolverine convo and it was nice to have her finally flesh out her own stance, but yeah, like above stated, hopefully this turn around didn't come late than needed.

Isn't the history wrong here? Psylocke lost her sight because of Slaymaster. Spiral and Mojo gave her new eyes. She lost her old body to the Mandarin and the Hand. Why should Betsy be angry with Spiral for these things? Confusing.
