Who's in this issue?
I don't really understand how this book can be a true continuation from the last book. It seems more like a epilogue to the last three issues than a true part of the story. Some slight graphical scenes where Logan loses an eye in a barfight (now how is that possible?), and basically, a lot of grievance done by Wolverine over the death of Silver Fox. Remember that Mariko Yashida had just died not too many issues ago, and he's still hurting from that. Overall, a much more "quieter" book than the last two issues.

"State of Grace"
IN THIS ISSUE:
Back at the X-Mansion, Logan insists to Professor X that he wants a workout on the Virtual 3-D gear where he can unleash his frustration and anger against Sabretooth for killing Silver Fox. Professor X didn't like the idea much, but reluctantly allowed him to after Jubilee convinces him that Wolverine solves his problem by allowing his frustration out through physical means.
Inside the virtual world of his, Logan is at the scene where Sabretooth had just finished killing Silver Fox. Wolverine and Sabretooth keeps fighting each other until the situation gets too out of hand, so Professor X terminates the simulation.
Later on that day, in a bar, Logan is seen playing billards agaisnt a few players. Logan easily beats one of the player, who then claims that he's been hustled. Logan, still a bit frustrated from the death of Silver Fox and Mariko Yashida, offers the guy a game of punch-for-punch. Logan even allows the guy to have first shots. The guy punches Logan hard in his face, knocking out an eyeball. Logan was about to return the punch, but Jean Grey walks in and stops the fight. (The guy who threw the punch gladly stopped because he was still a bit grossed out from seeing how Logan survived the punch, even after getting his eyeball knocked out. Jean tries to talk some sense into Logan by getting him to talk about his problems. Logan laments about how all of the loves that he has had are now dead, and talks about how his way of allowing the frustration out was to do it physically.
The next day, at a Salem cathedral where Silver Fox was supposedly to be buried there, Logan finds out from the minister that the burial had been canceled and the body was to be relocated. He finds out that Nick Fury was to be responsible for this. Just then, Nick flies in, along with Wraith. Wraith tells Logan how he found the cabin, but Logan could not be allowed to know the exact location of the cabin. Once at the cabin, Logan is left alone to bury Silver Fox at the place where they shared their happiest moments together.
