By my count, this is their first kiss.  So cute.  And Storm catches them.

Besides that, this is a largely Phoenix-centric issue.

Nightcrawler tells Rogue about the history of Phoenix, and by the end of the story she’ll reappear and choke poor Rogue.

Wolverine is in Japan where he is struggling to get over being stood up at the altar by Mariko because he killed her daddy.

Cyclops, Madelyne Pryor, and Binary are out in space with the Starjammers, where Binary joins the team.

Cyclops is struggling to get over Jean by dating a woman who looks exactly like her.  They return to Earth together, where Cyclops asks her if she is the reincarnation of his former girlfriend.

That pisses her off.  She leaves, and then suddenly…

Jean appears and blasts Scott unconscious.
