Synopsis for "Metamorphosis: Part Two"

Jaime Reyes tries to figure out what is going on, now that the Blue Beetle Scarab has integrated with him. Facing Bone Crusher and Brutale, the scarab recommends "lethal options", but Jaime doesn't want to kill anyone. Jaime rushes to rescue Paco, and is seen by The Brotherhood of Evil, who believe that the Blue Beetle must have been sent by La Dama. It would seem that everyone wants Jaime's backpack, as the Brotherhood inquires as to its whereabouts before attacking Blue Beetle. Blue Beetle grabs Paco and skedaddles. Meanwhile, at Casa Cardenas, Brenda is having her quinceanera and wonders where Jaime and Paco are, when suddenly, Tia's security forces go on alert. It appears that the Blue Beetle is heading straight for the party! Security fires a warning shot but then backs down as he drops off Paco. He tries to explain the situation, but the scarab will not allow him to reveal his identity. After puking on Tia's shoes though, the security decide to open-fire. The scarab dispatches them, non-lethaly per Jaime's command. Jaime then tries to move towards Tia to apologize, but Brenda misreads it as an assualt and jumps between them, telling him to keep away. Blue Beetle then takes off, wondering what just happened. Meanwhile, out in Space Sector 2809, The Reach receive word that a missing scarab has gone back online in Space Sector 2814 and move in to retrieve it...
