Chloe and Delavane head back to Washington DC. Chloe is worried about the team. She wonders if they are still alive. Delavane is bringing her to the government to ask for their help with the animal pandemic. Chloe, he believes, is the one person who can make them believe. 

The Crew arrives at the hospital, which has been overrun with animals. They find a doctor who agrees to operate on Jackson. He tells the team that the animals began arriving two days ago. The doctor takes Jackson in to operate. 

Mitch, Jamie, Abraham, and the cub head to a hematology lab that will have everything they need to create the cure. On the way there, they are frightened by how many dead workers they find.

Abraham understands, and tells Jamie and Mitch not to open the door until he returns.

Abraham is driving around the town looking for a domesticated animal, one that they can test the cure on. Abraham prays to God to find one. He comes across a dog, one whose owner is about to kill it.

Just as they finish, a leopard enters their room. They pull the fire alarm, and run, leaving behind the Mother Cell. They've made 2 doses of the cure. Abraham has the dog. 

The dog is unhappy. Mitch administers the cure to the dog. They wait, not knowing how long it will take. Chloe calls Jamie, who tells her that they are testing the cure, and that Jackson is hurt. Delavane takes Chloe's phone. He warned her not to make any calls. A group of Secret Service agents appear and ask Chloe and Delevane to come with them. 

Jackson very carefully leaves the x-ray room, in search of the one he left behind in the recovery room. He gets him, just in time, and they get back into the x-ray room. 

Mitch thinks that he's failed, because the dog still has not calmed down. Abraham wants Mitch to tell him why he failed. Mitch has to go over his theories one at a time.
