According to current belief, the molecular networks orchestrating cell death or exit from mitosis upon extended mitotic arrest do not interact, stubbornly executing two parallel biological programs and competing to define a stochastic decision between death and a chance for survival with uncertain destiny. However, recent findings by Diaz-Martinez et al (2014) in this issue of The EMBO Journal now call for a reassessment of the “competing network” hypothesis.
