Rachel, Cameron, and Nina trail Isaac Hale, the Alpha who murdered the MK scientists, as he works with another Alpha to track someone through the streets of New York City. They figure the Alpha finds the target and Isaac kills them. The other Red Flag agents have gone to ground and Isaac is their only lead. The tracker finally spots a couple, Danielle and Will, as they go to a pawnshop to get her money for her fix. The tracker leaves and Isaac closes in on the couple and demands that Danielle turn over something. He uses his necrosis, killing the nearby flowers, and Danielle and Will run away. Isaac follows them and corners them in an alleyway...Read the full recap
Isaac Hales: Don't make me kill you. It makes me tired, and then I get cranky.
Bill: Hello, where is everybody? Who's manning the fort?
Gary: It's not a fort, Bill. That's a bad metaphor. Forts have ramparts and cannons. We have desks and carpets.
Bill: You sitting in the boss' chair? What, are you in charge now? Where is everybody?
Gary: Yeah, Bill, I am in charge when no one else is here.
Bill: I'm fine. The doctor, uh, said that infarction actually normalized me.
Bill: Yeah, so... no more overdrive, no more underdrive. I'm optimal. So the rest was only precautionary.
Gary: Infarction. Come on.
Bill: Gary, not now. Listen.
Bill: Listen, we've got to focus.
Gary: I'm being immature.
Rosen: Gary, you spoke with Anna? I expressly told you not to do that.
Bill: Doc, I told him the same thing, okay? But he's his own man now. Just--just give him a minute.
Gary: Yeah, yeah, give me a minute. I'm my own man. Thanks, Bill.
Gary: No, I'm not coming home tonight, Mom. I.. I can't tell you. but my friends need my help... all of my friends. Yeah, I love you too, Mom. Mom, please, don't cry. Listen, Bill's gonna protect me. He's my partner, he--he's very strong. One time he pushed me over, which was better than taking a bullet. I said don't cry.
Gary: Dr. Ro--Dr. Rosen. Dr. Rosen, you should let me go and talk to--you should let me talk to Anna. 'Cause I could get them to surrender. I always get people to do what I want.
Bill: Yeah, you do that, Gary.
Rosen: So what I am advocating, Senator, is not more guns or money or even a bigger prison. I am calling for light. For transparency. An end to secrets. And so I say to all of you here… and to all you watching, alphas exist. They are among us. They are our friends and our spouses. They are our sons and daughters. They are indeed us, and they are not going away.
