As part of their ongoing rebellion, the Battlefront has decided to commence a new mission: Operation High Tension Syndrome. For one day the group will pretend to be living fulfilling school lives in the hopes of confusing Angel when they fail to. With the threat of a week-long fast hanging over their heads should they fail, everyone is putting their all into the mission.
