Hive 5.10 is the tenth chapter of Hive. Skitter engages in wealth redistribution and a chat with Newter. An awkward walk back with Bitch leads to a conversation with Tattletale about Bitch's psychology.
Skitter calls emergency services to care for the wounded ABB members and take Lung into captivity.
Skitter splits the money she collected from the ABB with her bugs between herself, Bitch, Newter, Labyrinth, and Coil's mercenaries. Skitter talks briefly with Newter about Labyrinth, who she notes seems out of it. Newter explains that while some powers affect the bearer's body, others affect the mind. They leave the site of the warehouse and part ways.
Bitch notices that Skitter looks like a failed hanging victim. Taylor discovers that Lung had left her a souvenir of their second encounter: a giant handprint bruise. They walk back; Bitch offers Taylor her coat.
After the rest of the Undersiders return to the loft, Taylor talks with Lisa about Bitch's psychology, drawing a mental connection between her and Labyrinth. Lisa confirms that Rachel's power "overwrote" her understanding of human social interaction with the ability to understand dogs.
