On Stitchers Season 1 Episode 5, the team is investigating the recent murder of a man named Justin who was a conspiracy theorist. As Kirsten is stitched into his mind, things go a little whacky and she is able to recall her own memories that she has no recollection of. While in Justin's mind, Kirsten is able to see where he keeps his secret folders and data on various government agencies and she leads Detective Fisher and Cameron to the food trust Justin ran.

Inside the truck, Kirsten goes straight to the hidden compartment and gets out the folder Justin was keeping under wraps, but things get dicey when they realize the truck is rigged to explode and they run out just in time. Back at the stitcher offices, the team is trying to figure out how to read the floppy disk which was in the folder and will give them the answers they need. Kirsten remembers Ed having an older computer when can read the disk and when she runs the disk, she's surprised to see the algorithm for the stitchers program which Cameron created. 

Kirsten brings the information to Cameron and accuses him of being the leak, but he's ruled out after Kirsten looks in his phone. Kirsten looks into Linus and Camille, but they are also ruled out as well and that only leaves Maggie as their final suspect. Unfortunately, when they go to confront Maggie she's shot in the shoulder. While Maggie's being patched up, Kirsten grills her on information about the disk, but Maggie denies being the leak and demands they go out and try to find the person. When the team gets ready to leave, they learn Marta has woken up from her coma and checked out of the hospital a week ago and they are convinced Marta is the one who leaked the information.

Kirsten was getting odd texts which turned out to be Marta and they agree to meet. Marta and Kirsten go back to Kirsten's house and she demands Kirsten to pack. Marta tells Kirsten the stitchers can't be trusted because they're evil and the program isn't about helping out people and it was created for other purposes. Before Marta is able to give Kirsten any more information, the police show up, Marta gets a phone call and she walks outside and basically commits suicide by cop. 

In the end, Maggie proved she couldn't be trusted when she meets with one of the heads of the stitchers program and he admitted to being the one on the phone to Maggie and he manipulated her emotions by convincing her to commit suicide by cop.
