The Fantastic Four are still trapped in cryogenic suspension after being captured by Aron the Rogue Watcher. Left to his own devices, Aron's minion the android Dragon Man stares longingly at the Invisible Woman. Feeling some of his old feelings for the woman, Dragon Man pauses at her momentarily before rejoining his master Aron, who is occupied with the visions of the Fantastic Four's dreams, and those of his clones that he let loose upon Earth. As Dragon Man walks away, Johnny Storm begins to dream...

Johnny is flying toward the Four Freedoms Plaza and is excited to see a ship touching down for a landing on its roof from space. As he approaches he is happy to see Crystal of the Inhumans emerge from the ship, back from her sabbatical on the moon. Conflicted between his love for Alicia and his love for Crystal, Johnny reminds himself that he is a married man. Crystal tells Johnny that her time on the moon was terrible, that her cousin Black Bolt had the royal right to demand her return to try and get her marriage with Quicksilver working, but this latest attempt was also a dismal failure. This time however, Crystal was able to convince her family that her marriage to Pietro was nothing more than a farce and had no choice but to allow her to have her divorce. Crystal decided to leave Luna under care on the moon to see if the Fantastic Four would welcome her back into their ranks again. Johnny tells her that she should have never left in the first place. The two former lovers find their control waning, with both mentally reminding each other that Johnny is still a married man. The tension is suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Johnny's wife Alicia Masters. Johnny instantly feels guilty even though nothing happened, and quickly explains that Crystal has returned and why. Crystal then abruptly leaves the married couple to see the others.

Down below, Crystal's return is happily received, and her request to rejoin the team is accepted by Reed, who tells her that the number of people on the team doesn't matter so long as its members share the group's ideals. Crystal is ecstatic to be back, but Sue is less than impressed to have her around. This is noticed by Ben and Sharon who remark on it later, Ben telling Sharon that Sue's just being protective of her younger brother. Ben is certain that Crystal will not interfere with Johnny's marriage after he told her not to spoil it during her previous tenure with the team, and believes Johnny would be an idiot to cheat on Alicia. When Sharon gets upset that Ben is commenting on Alicia's qualities, this leads to an argument between the two over who Ben truly loves. Things escalate until Sharon painfully grabs Ben's arm and the two walk away from each other angry.

In the days that follow, Crystal assists the Fantastic Four on their various adventures and battles. As a group they take down the Wrecker, a Kree Sentry, and the Dragon Man. With each battle Crystal and Johnny appear to be getting along better and better. This doesn't sit well with Sue who later calls a Crystal for a sit down about Johnny's marriage. Crystal is unimpressed with having this conversation with Sue again, and tells her that Ben already told her not to interfere with Johnny's marriage. Sue cuts right to the point and tells Crystal it would be best if she left the Fantastic Four. Their conversation becomes heated and soon the two women come to blows with one another. At first Crystal has the upper hand, but Sue uses her invisible force field to push her away. But when Crystal seemingly smashes out the window and falls to the street below, Sue rushes to her aid, letting her guard down. Crystal leaps back into the window and catches Sue off guard. Eventually, Crystal manages to win the bout, using her elemental powers to defeat Sue in their fight. Conceding defeat, Sue warns Crystal that their fight isn't over until she leaves the Fantastic Four.

Neither woman is aware that Franklin had been watching the entire fight in his dream form and rushes to tell his father what happened. Hearing this, Reed confronts Crystal about attacking his wife. Reed is shocked when Crystal tells him that Sue attacked her first, but Reed insists that Crystal apologize to Sue or leave. Sue interrupts this argument to confirm that she instigated the fight, and likened her tussle with Crystal to the fights that Ben and Johnny always had, pointing out that after any of those scraps her husband never asked either of them to leave the Fantastic Four. Reed and Sue make up and the argument appears to be over for the time being. Seeing this spectacle, Sharon decides to try and patch things up with Ben. She tells him that she needs to come to terms with the fact that she is happy being a She-Thing while she has to accept that Ben wants to be human. The two decide to put aside their differences and focus on their love for one another.

Things get heated again when Johnny returns, confronting his sister over the fight she had with Crystal, after hearing it from Franklin. Johnny admits to Sue that he still loves Crystal, but he also loves Alicia and is determined to remain faithful to his wife. He also expresses his outrage that she can't consider that him having enough self-control not to do anything foolish. Listening to this argument is young Franklin who suddenly starts screaming in pain. They rush Franklin to Reed as they are joined with the others. Reed examines his son and determines that the mental dampeners Franklin placed on his powers are weakening. When Franklin becomes lucid again he begins remembering how he once used his powers to make himself grow up to an adult. How when he was confused about who he was, he lashed out against his family. It wasn't until Sue recognized Franklin as her son, did Franklin remember who he was and realize how dangerous his powers were. Franklin then recalls how he used his powers to restore Ben -- who had been regressed to his lizard-hide form -- back to his rocky form before returning himself to his proper age.

Recalling how what he did was to make his uncle Ben and Alicia happy again, Franklin then startles them all by explaining that in making Alicia happy he used his powers to make her go to seek love from Johnny instead, but forgot that he did it when he put the dampers on his mutant powers. The Fantastic Four are all horrified when they realize that Franklin's powers inadvertently caused the Fantastic Four so much grief and pain between Ben and Johnny's romance lives. Insisting that he must undo the damage, Franklin then abruptly uses his powers to undo the damages done. Johnny, Alicia and Ben are suddenly bombarded by Franklin's energies. Suddenly in love with the right people, Ben and Alicia and Johnny and Crystal embrace, much to the breaking of Ms. Marvel's heart. Watching these startling events unfold, Sue believes that this is the end of the Fantastic Four. Thus ends Johnny's dream...

.... As the Fantastic Four continue to slumber, it would seem that they are forever trapped. However unseen by Aron, the temperature of the cryogenic devices begins to creep upwards.
