On the trail of the Titan, Medusa, the Huntik team meets the explosive Spiral hunter, Kiel. Zhalia's plan to ambush Kiel fails, and it is nearly a disaster. But Lok solves the puzzle and recovers the amulet. Sad, Zhalia leaves Dante and the others to do what she does best: infiltrate the Spirals.
Den and Harrison Fears both train with their factions. Den is recruited by the Huntik team to replace Zhalia but the pressure gets too much and he runs away. Lok and Cherit race to find him before Tantras and the Blood Spiral do.
- New Recruits
At Huntik Foundation Italian HQ, Den trains under Clease but, struggling to complete the numerous tasks, loses his temper. After heading back to the library, a frustrated Den walks out, throwing a book at Clease to catch, accidentally causing all the shelves to be knocked over. Lok, Sophie, Dante and Cherit rush in, worried that they are under attack. After helping Clease, they stop Den and ask him to join their team, noting how Zhalia herself recommended him as her replacement. Although initially unsure, Den agrees, but first, he must clean up the library.
At the Blood Spiral Base, a far more brutal training regime is taking place as Harrison spars against Tantras and Jericho. Harrison invokes a new Titan, Hitokiri but, as they are overpowered, the session is interrupted when Zhalia and the other new recruits arrive, eager to learn. Tantras brings forward a crippled Stack and, as a lesson to his students for what becomes of spies, kills him as he screams in pain.
- Looking for Den
At Dante Vale's house, Clease contacts the team, saying that Den has gone missing. Understanding how Den must feel, Lok and Cherit go to find him. Dante rightly fears they're not the only one looking for him; Tantras tells his students that they will go after Den for turning his back on the Blood Spiral.
Lok and Cherit search the streets of Venice before finally catching up with Den. As Lok tries to convince him to return, they run into a pair of a thugs who Den provokes, leaving Lok to fight them. With help from Cherit, Lok uses Spidertouch to subdue the thugs before saving Den from falling into the canal. Lok reminds Den how he used to protect the weaker kids at his orphanage, pointing out that he is already a hero and has what it takes to be part of the team. As Den agrees, they are interrupted by Tantras' students. Lok holds them off, telling Den to run, but Den uses a Boltflare to hit one of them in the back. Accidentally knocking a Gondolier into the water, Lok invokes Kipperin and they escape. Watching from the rooftops are Tantras, Harrison and Zhalia, who uses Logosbook to warn Dante.
- Taking on the Blood Spiral
Back at Dante's house, impressed with Den's courage, Lok gives him his Freelancer Amulet while Dante decides that they face the Spirals. In the moonlight, the team wait in the streets as the Spirals emerge. Tantras demands they surrender Den but Dante refuses. As two groups clash, the blue-haired orphan invokes Harlekin. Desperate to protect Sophie, Lok summons Lindorm and together they manage to defeat the enemy Titan. Lok pursues one of the students across the canal and into an abandoned warehouse. The student launches a surprise attack but Lindorm bursts and defeats him.
Harrison and Den fight, but Den falters against Harrison's new Blood Spiral powers. As Harrison summons Hitokiri, Den invokes Freelancer, turning the tables and matching his brother. As Cherit and Freelancer defeat Hitokiri, Den overpowers Harrison.
- Dante Vs Tantras
Tantras fights against Dante one on one but is outmatched by his martial arts, so two of students his restrain Dante. Using Skingrip to the hold all three down, Tantras prepares to eliminate Dante using Bladewave, even hitting his own men. Sophie intervenes in time with Honorguard but Tantras continues to attack. Lok and Lindorm arrive, and unsettled at the appearance of a Powerbonded Titan, Tantras uses Darkfog and retreats with his students. Den attempts to take an unconscious Harrison back to the Foundation, but Zhalia uses Darksleep on him and brings Harrison to Tantras. He rewards her for proving herself, ordaining her arm with the Spiral symbol and making her Harrison's bodyguard.
Sophie is impressed as Lok helps to teach Den in the library, giving him study tips. Dante agrees that they have a lot more potential but things are going to get a lot more dangerous.
- The English title of this episode is a spoof on the well known phrase "Boys will be boys".
- The two street thugs who attack Lok were seen attacking Zhalia Moon in a flashback of her past in The Beautiful Trap.
- The scene where the Gondolier is knocked into the water by Lok is a reference to A Seeker Is Born in which the same event occurred.
- In Italy, this episode is titled The New Seekers.
