That night, Patsy woke Ian up, revealing she had bed bugs and helped him realize he did as well. They confronted Mr. Ravina, who denied that the bed bugs were his problem. Sensing something mystic about them, Patsy took Ian to the home of Doctor Strange, where he met Wong, and Ian played chess with Wong while Patsy got a mystical upgrade.
