They explained to Blossom that Barasia was the biggest treat and they needed to work together to defeat her. Blossom came to understand Bell, also because Barasia killed her father.

The ship was very damaged and there were many death's.

Chapter 35: Lifelines Conclusion
- Ginger isn't not actually based on Sugarbits but a much earlier comic Bleed worked on. The robot who appears with her in Lifelines is just called Bleed, who looks like a mix between Bleedheart and Brave (and Bleedheart was probably based on him). In the original comic, Bleed was her guardian.
