There was a huge leak of heroes personal information by Teacher's Group to the wider public. This shifts the public conversation in Gimel and warns Shin that the parahumans they took in are not who they represented themselves as.
↑I didn’t take my eyes off of Amy as I asked, “Dot, what were the interesting results from her power?” [...] “The ear one,” Dot said.
Amy visibly winced.
“Fixing an ear, a wiggly hole going through head. Canal. She colored outside the lines, little ripply-rigid flesh around the ear and more holes twisting through. There was blood bubbling out.” [...] Dot went on, “It was beautiful. Wasn’t until I said something that she stopped, half the head was holes reaching through, ripples and ridges around.”
“I zoned out. I hadn’t slept, I was tired,” Amy said.
“She called the Snark for help. Asked him to fix the ears. He wouldn’t. But he sat with and talked her through. He sat with for the next few too.” - Excerpt from Breaking 14.10

They made an attempt to paint us in a bad light and that was shut down. Victoria and her team did well. The Founders and Coalition are reasserting control of things. More of yesterday’s status quo, as far as we’re concerned.” [...] “Breakthrough is in,” Antares said. “Most of us. And Shin is too. They offered a bit of help.” [...] “I didn’t think we were on such good terms with Shin,” Jeanne said.
“The Coalition and Founders are acting pretty happy that the messy stuff has been handled and the blame is being pointed in the appropriate directions.” - Excerpt from Interlude 14.z II
