Steve packs up and prepares to leave his room in the dead agents’ vault, and looks at a photo of himself and Claudia together. She comes in and comments on the photo, and then they leave together for a briefing at Artie’s office. Pete is complaining about the hot water when Artie interrupts to give them the real briefing. He informs them that they’ve had a ping from Devil’s Lake, North Dakota. A cleaning lady showed all the symptoms of a spider bite but no bite itself. Steve identifies the symptoms immediately and explains that the artifact responsible is a small wooden token that Sykes stole. He says that Sykes stored them in crates and moved them after Steve died. They figure that Marcus took them to Devil’s Lake and they check the residences that the housecleaner went to. One was the Mazzanti residence, and a Mazzanti was the original illustrator of Collodi’s Pinnochio. Artie figures that it’s a safehouse for Sykes’ artifacts and sends Pete and Myka to round them up...
