It turns out a villain named Lavish has been luring mutants to the island and taking their memories and part of their powers to create copies of them. Throughout this fight, they regain a memory whenever they defeat a duplicate. While this premise is a bit ridiculous, I think it is the perfect conflict for this story, because it forces them to literally fight with past versions of themselves and face their traumatic memories head-on.
I loved how Thompson handled this. They know they have to fight these duplicates but every time they defeat one and get a memory back it is a painful experience. She wants to be with Gambit, but she is plagued with doubt.
