As we saw last issue, X-23 was delivered to the tender mercies of Kimura, her former handler/tormentor, who proceeded to chainsaw off one of her arms.
In this issue, the spotlight is mostly ceded to Agent Morales, a former-SHIELD/current-HAMMER operative who's been on the trail of the famous assassin X-23 for pretty much the whole series. Now having unwittingly delivered X-23 into the hands of the Facility, she's offered a spot with them, or else death.
She arrives on scene and shoots Kimura, then frees X-23, while mumbling in horror at her severed hand. Laura's pretty unphased by it, after a moment, and picks up the other, saying the Facility can't make more of her. She spends the rest of the issue running around carrying her severed arm, which, if Warren Ellis was writing, would probably have been milked for a lot more black comedy than it is here.
However, this is Kimura, so a bullet isn't enough to put her down.
They boogie, and eventually stumble across a lab full of trigger-scent chemical.
Elsewhere, the buildup to Selene's big scheme continues:
Ah, Selene, you Claremont-era BDSM queen.
Choi and Oback really should draw most everything, but I really wish they had a few more female faces.
