Riley knocks on Gabriel's door and when he opens she says she thought she might had to break down the door. Gabriel replies that she'd be huffing and puffing since it is a steel door to which she says she has a key. She tells him to get ready since they have a case. Gabriel takes the newspaper and the coffee from Riley which she brought for herself.CyberCom Nelson has a weird thing in his head and when asked he says he is controlling a quadcopter with his mind. Dr. Cassidy says Gabriel doesn't need the equipment Nelson is wearing in his head since he has a chip in his brain and use it control the quadcopter. Nelson tells Lillian the quadcopter could be hers for free in exchange for an apology. She asks what's the apology is for for which Nelson replies for suspecting he had something to do with Dr. Cassidy's kidnapping in the Pilot episode. Lillian says he is the ones who owes her an apology since he and his father built a second clockwork microchip illegally and almost got the prototype killed.
DNI Adam Weatherly about the virus breakout in Texas. More than 100 people are sick and more than 40 have already died. Dr. Cassidy deduces the virus is being passed by direct contact.When Gabriel asks why they need CyberCom's help she says there on a manhunt for Patient Zero and Gabriel is the best chance at finding him quickly. The first outbreak was at a music festival where 22 people were infected. He uses the social media networks to get pictures of the festival. Chris says it took three days to identify the Boston bombers through the photos posted in social media networks. But Dr.Cassidy says they can find patient zero quicker through Gabriel's cyber renders.
Somewhere in Texas a man gets into a truck and Luther Vick the prisoner who is supposed to be dead and patient zero is in the back seat. The man is Tom-Tom Benitez. He shoots him with a gun.
Oliver Sicola, Director of Homeland Security Anna Rachey and the Director of Defense Intelligence General Greg Carter. They all do their reports and when it is Lillian's turn she says she has deployed clockwork to find the patient zero. When the Director of Defense Intelligence asks what is clockwork she says it is code name and doesn't say much about it. When the video conference is over Weatherly asks Lillian to stay behind and when the others are gone he asks if it is a good idea to send Gabriel into a middle of deadly outbreak. She says what's the use of having clockwork if they can't use it to save lives. He says clockwork will always be in danger as long as there is only one Gabriel. He says if she want hundreds and thousands of him the clockwork not only should continue to prove itself it has to survive too that means Gabriel. Lillian says she understands the risks.
Secret Service they are taught to imagine the room as it is in underwater and look for a drain. Gabriel lies down on the execution table and tells her to activate the machine. Riley thinks it is creepy. Gabriel says he is not hook to an IV and Riley turns it on. Gabriel is automatically strapped to the table and Riley says there is nothing creepy about that. Suddenly Gabriel flat lines freaking Riley out. But he opens his eyes and tells he hacked into the machine and if he can do it someone else can do it too. He says at least six people are needed to pull off faking Luther's death. Gabriel receives a text message someone from the other room send saying 'Someone Knows' and tells Riley they should leave since they are not alone.
Django who was at the music festival with his dad who is in the other bed with him. His mother Charlotte is in a hazmat suit next to him. She asks Nelson if he is a good doctor to which he replies he isn't but his dad is. He sends the samples to his father and they figure out the virus is man made and it is transmitted through sweat glands. He says Luther is probably not even infected yet and it might take days or weeks before he is infected.
Jones who send text message. He is walking to his car in the parking lot talking to someone on the phone. Both Chris and Gabriel tries to pinpoint the location of the person calling Jones. Jones is paranoid and asks whoever on the other side of the phone to take care of the problem so it won't be traced back to him. They say they have and the parking lot explodes. Gabriel finally traces the call and it leads them to the Pentagon. CyberCom thinks it probably was a private contractor working for the Pentagon who was conducting tests on Luther and he escaped. There is no one better to conduct experiments on than dead people.
Luther goes to visit Luanne who is surprised to see him alive. She asks how he is alive. He says after he supposedly died and opened his eyes he saw people in duck suits hovering over him and injecting him all kinds of things. He pretended to be asleep and later escaped from the facility he was being held. They makeup for the lost time.
Luther and Luanne are in the farmhouse. He is watching the news about the virus outbreak when Luanne arrives. He sees that she is infected by the virus. She says she has to go to the hospital. He blames Luther and says he was the one who gave it to her since he was the only one she's been with. Luther saying that's not possible since he is feeling fine. He grabs a pair of scissors.
Chris and Lillian warns them that the special forces soldiers are on their way to the farmhouse. They arrive and General Carter orders them to take care of the collateral meaning Gabriel and Riley.
Nelson delivers the vaccine to the CDC camp. Charlotte, who is also infected tells them to give it to Django first.
