Hicks and Harken are working with Clay to catch criminal Alphas. We see them undercover in a grocery store attempting to stop a robbery ring. They nab one of the Alphas, but the other two are able to leave out the back and get into a car. For some reason Cameron has issues using his power and misses a shot to take out their vehicle.
Back in the office we see Harken is having anxiety issues. They talk about the fact Gary has disappeared from a chat room where he regularly contributed. He was assigned to the NSA, which they view as a mistake.
Rachel is having a particularly tough time with her alpha power. She is unable to shut out the world and hasn't left her room for months.
Nina is "pushing" average people on the streets. We see her convince a man to share a cab with her.
Hicks and Harken bring the woman from the robbery to Binghamton. Looking down on the floor they talk about how the alphas are controlled with a chip in their head. They are stunned to spot Gary, who has the tell-tale scar on the back of his neck. We learn that Gary panicked at the NSA when somebody tried to touch him. Clay tried to help him, but he put two agents in the hospital and there was no choice.
Rosen's daughter visits him in the hospital, using her power to take the edge off his sedatives. He tells her that he's confident he'll eventually be released. Rosen thinks Stanton Parrish will so something dramatic and he'll be needed.
While her chip is being inserted, the alpha from the robbery, Debra, uses her power to short out the building's electricity and get into the system. She begins disabling the alpha's chips and they are able to get the jump on the guards. Harken grabs Gary and tries to carry him out of the ward, but he's stopped by an alpha named Asher and tossed into a cell with Gary.
Debra is dating an alpha named Scipio, who seems to be the leader. She tells him there was a failsafe door she couldn't get passed. Scipio begins negotiating with Clay. Scipio demonstrates they are capable of killing their hostages, forcing one to turn a gun on himself and begin pulling the trigger. The safety was on but the message is received. Scipio says "there's only one person I'm willing to negotiate with."
Cut to Clay telling Rosen "there's been an incident."
We see Rosen collecting the rest of the team. He helps get Rachel out of her room and pulls Nina away from the man she was pushing. They both are willing to help Gary.
Harken tries to apologize to Gary, but so far he's not saying anything.
Rosen and the women arrive at Binghamton. His plan is to go inside alone and have Rachel, Nina and Hicks help from the outside. If there is trouble they will come in to help.
After being roughed up by Asher, Scipio welcomes him the "monkey house" with a handshake. With Rachel listening, Scipio talks to Rosen about how they've been treated inside. Scipio asks about them being "mistakes" and wonders if he can turn off the ability from his brains.
Gary is now talking to Harken, thought not about anything important.
Rosen finds it strange Scipio seems so calm under the circumstances and asks whether or not he is employing a delaying tactic. Debra tells Scipio "we're ready."
The monitors fizzle out briefly. When they return, Hicks and the team are stunned to watch a hostage shot and Scipio use his powers to set Rosen on fire. But Rachel thinks something isn't right, as she can't smell and burning from the fire or hear any yelling. Nina tells Hicks "it is all fake," just as he finds Debra using her power to project a fact image on the monitor.
Asher has used the distraction to break through a wall and the alphas are all free. Rosen is left alone, but Harken and Gary are placed in a truck. With some coaching from Rosen, Hicks is about to fire a shot that disables the truck and flips it over. Gary and Harken are fine and Asher is unconscious, but Scipio is gone.
Clay tells Rosen he needs him to put his team back together and fix the Binghamton mistake. He's being offered a full pardon, along with a consulting fee. Rosen agrees on the condition he gets full control.
The team is back together. Gary is unable to interact with anybody. Rosen points out Gary's routine and helps him make a call to his mother. Gary is back and the rest of the team is falling into their old roles. In his office Rosen glances down at Parrish' file.
Cut to Parrish meeting with Rosen's daughter. She is working with him and was behind Rosen being released. They watch as a train derails and explodes.
Hide description ▲
Cut to Hicks and Rosen's daughter Danielle having sex. Afterwards they seem to agree perhaps it's best not to tell anybody.
We see Gary freaking out about something related to pudding and his shelf in the community fridge. Rosen asks Clay about the train crash, which destroyed large amounts of various kinds of supplies. Rosen wonders who might have benefited. Clay says the FBI is looking at it as an accident. Rosen tells him it reeks of Parrish.
The alphas team investigates the abduction we saw in the opening. Gary spots a blur on the video and they realize they're looking for somebody who moves at ten times normal human speed. Gary finds him five blocks away and they realize they are looking for somebody who uses calories at an unbelievable rate.
Rachel helps them track the guy to an abandoned meat plant where they find the body of the man abducted from the restaurant.
The prints found with the dead body are of an Alpha named Eli. Looking at Eli's records we see that he's aging at an accelerated rate, but doesn't have a history of violence.
Gary is using his powers to read Hicks' text messages and almost spills the beans about a personal message he got from Danielle.
Rosen tells Nina she needs to get her life back in order, starting with her showing up to work on time.
They interview the woman who was sitting at the table with the man abducted at the restaurant. She didn't recognize Eli.
Gary learns that Eli has taken another person. They are able to alert Hicks and Harken, who get there in time to save him from killing the man. He takes off and Harken gives chase. He nearly catches him, but it seems his bum heart costs him speed at the end.
The man who Eli grabbed was a doctor. He says Eli complained about his care, but the doctor doesn't recall ever treating him. It turns out both he and the doctor Eli has already killed did controversial brain wave experiments on children at the same clinic.
Danielle sits with Parrish at the deathbed of and elderly woman. She is the 31st of his grandchildren to die. He asks her about Rosen. Parris thinks Rosen needs to "get there on his own." He also asks about Hicks, and says he hopes that they will be able to remain friends.
Cut to Danielle tearfully breaking up with Hicks.
Rosen tells Harken he wants them to use the doctor as bait. He thinks the team will be able to catch Eli, but Harken is worried the team isn't much of a team right now. They argue about why exactly the team broke apart, with Harken saying Rosen was being selfish. Rosen says if he feels that strongly he should leave and Harken does just that.
Nina apologizes to Hicks for using her abilities on him. She wants them to pick up their relationship and he says he's seeing somebody. She uses her power to compel him to tell her who this new person is. Nina goes to her office and slams the door.
While staking out the doctor Gary spills the beans on Danielle to Harken.
After Rachel leaves to join the stakeout, Eli zips into the office and asks Rosen to help him. Rosen says he'll do whatever he can, so long as Eli trusts him.
During the stakeout Rachel asks Hicks about Danielle.
After spotting his picture on a table, Eli tells Rosen that Parris ran the clinic he saw as a child.
Worried about her father, Danielle calls Hicks to say she's worried. Eli grabs the phone out of her hand and throws it against the wall.
The team rushes to Rosen's aid with Gary helping them along the way.
Eli takes Rosen to the site of the clinic, but find it no longer exists. Police surround the area and Eli grabs Rosen and takes him away. Eli holds a knife to his throat. Danielle arrives and uses her ability to help Eli slow down. At that exact moment a gunshot rings out and Eli drop to the ground. Nobody is sure who took the shot.
A following day Clay is in the office and we learn that the shooter is still a mystery. Rosen and Harken asks for more space for their team. After Clay leaves Rosen tells Harken that he did let them down and needs to make it up to the team.
Danielle tells Parrish she wants to be with Hicks. He gives his approval, but tells her to be careful.
At a team meeting Rosen tells the gang the government will no longer have access to their daily work. He tells them about the connection between Eli and Parrish.
Parrish hugs his granddaughter, then uses his hand to smother her and put her out of her misery.
Rosen finds Nina drinking by herself at a bar. She says "I'm done." On her way out of the bar she tells him "Hicks is nailing your daughter." She uses her ability to get him to accept the fact she's never coming back.

We see that Gary screams bloody murder before breakfast. His tells Rosen about the problem, saying she thinks he came back to work too soon and needs to talk to somebody.
Rachel is having issues with her over-protective parents. We meet John Bennett, who is going to be the team's new head of tactical. Rachel is bothered by his heavy use of body spray.
The team examines the body of Jack Duffy, a Building 7 escapee who appears to have had acid spit in his face. He was in a fight and then dropped off the side of a building. There is a number on his hand.
Following the number leads Harken and the team to an address in a bad neighborhood. Inside he and Hicks find what appears to be a fight club of some kind. The pretend to have been invited.
Rachel tells Bennett she has to get away from his smell, but as soon as she leaves the car she calls Hicks to tell him she smells the acid from Duffy's face. She follows the aroma and finds a man with an acid scar on his face. He's waiting for the man who did it to him, someone named Bazevich.
Harken is asked to participate in a fight and is told he must fight as a first-timer. During the fight a woman in the crowd tells Hicks that all the fighters are alphas. The one Harken is fighting is able to make his opponent see two and three versions of himself. Harken is not faring well.
Gary analyzes the black-and-white picture of a Civil War Major named Jacob who was treated at New York hospital by a Dr. Harrison. Rosen asks about the screaming and Gary says he doesn't want to talk about it. He mentions Anna being killed.
After the fight Bennett tells Harken about Bazevich, who they know is a fighter. The woman who talked to Hicks, named Kat, helps Harken get invited back for the next fight.
Gary tells his mother he's moving out. He thinks that Rosen's advice for Rachel should also apply to him. Rosen advises he stay home from that work.
The alpha fight still seems like the best way to find Bazevich.
Cut to Kat working with Harken on his training, taking him through the talents of the various fighters.
Bennett brings Rachel a pile of different soaps, asking her to choose how he smells.
Kat thinks that Harken is fighting who he really is by not amping up. She says when he needs his power it will be there. Then without realizing what's happening Harken destroys the room with his bare hands.
At New York hospital Rosen is told Harrison's files are still in the records Harrison treated Jacob, describing him surviving a bullet wound to the middle of his forehead. We flashback to Harrison experimenting with Jacob's ability to heal from injuries. Rosen tells Hicks he thinks Jacob is Stanton Parrish. Hicks tells Rosen about the relationship with his daughter.
Harken's wife stops by to see him at work. He tells her how good he feels and the two start fooling around in his office.
Gary wants to live in the office. Rosen tells his mother they need to support him in his independence.
Kat tells Harken there will be a ton of people with deep pockets at the fights that night. He asks her about Bazevich, but she doesn't know much. She tells him she only remembers things for a month.
Rosen finds a news article related to Harrison being murdered. We flash back to Parrish stopping Harrison before he's to give a presentation about his abilities. When Harrison refuses to keep it to himself, Parrish kills him.
Harken knocks out his first opponent of the night with one punch. Su
In the car Rachel smells something strange. Two people get out of an SUV which she thinks smells like Bazevich.
Kat wants to be the next person to fight Harken. With her kickboxing background and recent research she's done on how to fight, she wins the fight. Afterwards the people from the SUV want Kat to help them with a job. She leaves in their vehicle and the team follows.
At the location Rachel can hear that Kat is being prepped for something. Harken goes in to try and help her. He uses a soda machine to get past four armed men and finds a room full of stretchers. Kat seems okay. One of the stretchers contains a very dead Bozevich. It seems to be a place where alphas are experimented on. Kat seems very interested in joining Rosen's team.
Rachel and Bennett seems to be hitting it off. She hints at a date, but he doesn't think it would be appropriate.
Parrish finds Rosen at a diner. He says Harrison was killed because he tried to "use me." Parrish says he wants to stop the bloodshed. Rosen references his background in cellular research.
Gary's mother helps him move in to his new bedroom at the office. He tells her he'll call her in the morning.
We see Harken return to the fight club looking for a fight.
Hide description ▲
A man named Lewis walks down the street in his pajamas with he thinks is a baby. He ends up getting tased by police officers and we see that it was actually a bag of cash.
Harken and Rachel come into the office to find Gary on his way from the shower. He tells them about Rosen letting him stay in the office until he finds an apartment. Bennett pops his head in and says he needs to talk to Rosen.
Kat tells Rosen she wants to try out for the team. Her power is an ability to learn complex concepts in a matter of hours, though the tradeoff is she has no long-term memory. But he is just interested in finding a way to counteract her memory loss. Bennett tells Rosen "I've got another one for you." Rosen gives Kat a video camera.
Bennett tells Rosen about Lewis, who tried to steal $500,000 from the bank where he works, thinking he was saving a baby. The thinking is that Nina responsible for Lewis, along with two similar theft-type incidents. Rosen thinks they need to bring her in for her own safety. Hicks isn't sure if he should be involved in bringing her in, but Rosen convinces him to do "whatever it takes."
Rachel thinks Bennett was lying about not wanting to date her because they work together. He tells he that two years ago he suffered a war wound. He shows it to her and she covers her nose. Bennett leaves the room.
Rachel and Hicks go to a club they know Nina likes. Rachel finds her in a VIP area and asks her to see Rosen. Nina isn't interested. Nina uses her power to get Rachel to make out with her. Hick shows up and meets Nina's new boyfriend Tommy. Nina uses her power to convince Hicks to carry Rachel out of the club.
Rosen uses medication to pull Hicks out from Nina's spell. Nina's powers have grown since she left the team. They talk about Tommy being somebody from Nina's childhood. Rosen thinks Nina's use and dependence on her ability is similar to that of a drug addict.
In another Nina childhood flashback we see her meeting Tommy. They bond because both of their parents are always fighting. In present day we see Nina tell Tommy she's worried she screwed up.
Hicks and Harken pay Tommy's ex Becky a visit. He's left her and their child and she's happy to be rid of him.
During a flashback we see Nina telling Tommy about her ability to control people. Back then it only lasted a few minutes. In present day Tommy tells Nina he thinks they should leave the country and get married.
Rosen watches old video of session with Nina. Kat comes in with her video camera rolling. She's heard about Nina from Gary. Clay pays Rosen a visit to ask about the about the Building 7 escapees. Rosen doesn't tell him what is going on with Nina.
Hicks and Gary give Rosen a lead on Nina's whereabouts. Because of Clay's pressure Rosen tells them they'll have to put Nina on hold.
Becky stops and tells the team on second thought she's not happy Tommy is gone. Rachel thinks Nina pushed her before the first interview. The team again tells Rosen they want to go after Nina and he says they can't. Rachel realizes Rosen was pushed by Nina.
During another childhood flashback Nina comes home to find her father sitting at home instead of at work. Since Nina pushed him into not leaving home he believed he had to stay in the building. She fixes her mistake.
Before Nina can leave town the guys arrest Tommy. He tells them he loves Nina and doesn't think she's actually in trouble. Rosen brings Becky and Tommy's son in to see him.
Rosen and Rachel leave Tommy's room and run into a gun-wielding Hicks and Nina. Nina gets rid of Rachel and goes into Tommy's room. Tommy looks angry and Rosen says that Nina's been pushing him the entire time. There never was a relationship. Nina realizes that it's true, even recalling childhood when Tommy wanted to tell somebody what she was doing to her father.
Outside Nina pushes Hicks into helping her escape, getting him to shoot Bennett in the shoulder.
On the roof Hicks and Harken get into a standoff. Rosen arrives and tries to talk Nina down. She climbs to the edge of the roof and talks about what happened with her, Tommy and her father. We see that her father killed himself. She says she's tired of hurting people and jumps off the roof. Fortunately Hicks springs into action and does the Hicks thing, shooting free a cable so he can dive off the edge and grab her. Harken pulls the two of them to safety.
Harken talks to Kat about the importance of memories. She starts listening to some of Rosen's old records.
Bennett asks Rachel out. He says he's sensitive, telling her he hasn't been with anyone since his injury.
Clay allows Nina to be released into Rosen's custody. Hicks is sitting outside Nina's room. Nina tells Rosen "I'm dangerous." But Rosen pulls back her blindfolds and sits down next her.

Nina drops by to see Rosen after hours. He tells her he wants to take a different approach with her recovery. Parrish has a charity that has made several sizeable donations to a New York senator. Rosen wants her to look into the senator.
Hicks' son is not coming to visit him as planned. Harken tells him he's been going to the fight club. Rachel is having trouble accepting Nina as part of the team.
Adam's video made its way onto YouTube, so the team is aware of what happened.
Nina uses her power to get the senator to tell her what she did in return for donations from Parrish's foundation. But the senator can't tell her anything specific, saying the information is "gone."
Rosen tells Adam he thinks intense grief was responsible for him seeing his sister alive and wants to send him to a clinic. Harken and Hicks will escort him to the facility.
In the elevator Adam begins to hear his sister calling for him. He tells the orderly he needs to get off and escapes through the top of the car and up the shaft.
Gary attends Anna's funeral with Rachel. Gary makes a scene and as Rachel leaves her phone rings.
Rachel and Gary arrive at the hospital to help the guys find Adam. While she guides them to Adam, Gary gets a tap on his shoulder. It's Anna. But since she's talking he realizes something is up. A custodian tells him nobody is there. The Anna hallucination begins to break up.
Nina tells Rosen about the senator. He thinks she might still be able to retrieve the information using other methods. For practice he has Nina try and retrieve old information from Kat, who is undergoing a sleep study in the office. Using Kat's sensory memory Nina seems to be able to get the process started but starts having trouble.
The image of Anna keeps disappearing and reforming, following Gary up the stairs.
Rachel takes Harken to the room where she believes Adam is located. But she turns around and finds Harken is gone. Adam is on the ceiling and jumps down on top of her.
We see that Hicks and Harken are unable to find Rachel.
At the airport to meet the senator Rosen asks Nina about what happened to her during the session with Kat. She says she's fine.
Harken calls Gary about not being able to find Rachel.
Nina works on the senator. She gets a few tidbits before she's pulled away for her flight, including something about August.
Harken sees lights flashing as he looks for Rachel. Hicks has visions of his son.
Adam is with Rachel, believing she is his sister. She escapes and runs to an elevator. She carves "I'm drowning" into the elevator wall. We see Adam at a sink, under the impression he's saving somebody who is drowning. A hand pulls him into the water.
Harken runs into Gary, who tells him about Anna. Hicks thinks he is seeing his son being put into a morgue chamber. Harken finds Adam's body facedown in the sink.
While with Anna, Gary sees a tray full of instruments moving. He has discovered a certain kind of sonic frequency is causing the disturbances, but isn't sure what is causing it.
Rosen arrives and Harken tells him what is going on. Gary tells Rosen about the frequency, which has a dramatic impact on people's brains. Gary recorded Anna's signal and after making a few modifications they are able to hear "I'm drowning."
Rachel is at a pool, thinking she sees Nina drowning at the bottom. Hicks thinks he's been operated on. Harken sees himself and the two Harkens begin to fight.
Gary finds a 16-year old patient in a vegetative state named Jason in the hospital who might be the one communicating. Rosen leaves to look for him. Gary meets up with Anna and the two find him first. Rosen arrives but Gary won't let him in, saying that if they wake Jason up he'll lose Anna. Rosen tries to explain to him that Anna isn't real. Anna advises him to save Jason and Gary lets Rosen in. Rosen injects Jason with a medication and immediately all of the hallucinations cease.
Rachel had been underwater for some time and Harken rushes to her, eventually able to get her breathing.
Rosen asks Jason what he remembers. He can't think of anything. Rosen sees that they are using a new photic stimulator on the comatose patients. It is manufactured by "August Medical."
Hicks shows up unannounced to see his son and spend some time with him.
Kat teaches herself to draw and seems to be sketching someone from her past.
Gary tells Rosen that August sent the devices to thousands of hospitals across the country. After Rosen leaves Gary gets a message from @AnnaLives which says "The revolution is coming."

We see Rachel on a date with Bennett. It seems awkward.
Rosen wants the entire team to join him on the trip to visit Skyler. This includes Nina and some members of the team are uncertain about her. Immediately after Hicks hangs up with Dani she sends someone a text informing them the team is on its way.
The team drives to a remote area. They are stopped by two alphas who want them to turn around. Skyler shows up, but she isn't interested in having visitors. She allows them to stay only after Rosen reminds her the risk he took on her behalf with the NSA.
Skyler is living on what seems to be a colony for displaced alphas.
Skyler looks at the device but doesn't find anything unusual. Skyler's daughter is a alpha with a gift for math and numbers and she's a handful for her mother. Rosen does well with Zoe.
Gary and Harken run into Claude, who is the founder of the alpha colony. Gary has been frustrated by the lack of electromagnetic signals, but Claude points out the number of naturally-found signals.
Skyler and Rose discuss raising an alpha child. Claude isn't happy to see Rosen, seemingly very aware of who he is.
Gary and Harken stare into the sky. Gary is fascinated by a star. He's seeing what looks like a aurora borealis. While the two look up a man stands behind them with a switchblade.
The man with the knife is one of several alphas watching the colony. They appear to be there on Parish's behalf, trying to get the device.
Skyler talks to Nina about trying to a responsible mother. She says she's only at the colony for Zoe. Nina tells her about the team not being sure about her return.
Claude tells Rosen why he doesn't care for him. He doesn't think Rosen should have spoken on their behalf.
On his way back from dinner one of the colony alphas jumps Rosen. He has powers related to electricity and he does something to the device with his hand. People come to the rescue and Claude tells the team he wants them to leave the following day.
The next morning Rachel works on the device with Skyler. They find a tiny circuit board embedded on some of the wires. Skyler wants more time to look at it, but Rosen says they need to leave. Zoe overhears Skyler say that things were "so much easier when I was alone" and runs away. The device begins to malfunction and zaps Rachel in the face. She falls to the ground.
Gary tells Skyler he wants to stay at the colony.
Harken carries Rachel to the car as the team prepares to leave.
While looking for Zoe in the woods Skyler runs into Parish's henchmen, one of whom is Scipio. They have Zoe and want the device back.
The team is in the van waiting for Rosen so they can leave. Gary doesn't want to come with them and runs off.
Rosen returns to Skyler's cabin and finds the machine gone and one of Zoe's toys sitting on the table.
Skyler confronts Scipio in a barn. Rosen arrives and uses the device to knock Scipio to the ground, allowing them to escape.
Rachel's alphas powers have been increased by the device and she's able to hear Zoe's cries.
Hicks and Harken enter the building where Zoe is being held.
We see Scipio wake up. His powers have also been increased and flames are literally dripping from his hands. He sets the barn on fire as he walks out.
Hicks finds Zoe with one of Parish's alphas. The two fight, with the woman getting the better of him, eventually cutting him on the leg with a saw. Harken comes in and saves the day. Skyler arrives and they tell her Zoe is in the basement. They find her safe and sound, but by this point Scipio arrives and sets the stairwell on fire. They look doomed, but Skyler uses her alpha power to conceptualize a way to make a fire extinguisher out of materials in the basement.
By this point most of the colony is on fire.
Skyler builds the extinguisher with help from Zoe and they are able to get themselves out of the basement. The team leaves the colony.
Parrish runs into Skyler and Zoe at a restaurant. He apologizes for the behavior of his men and offers her a chance to help him "make the world a better place."
Back at home Bennett comforts Rachel with an origami bird. She says "you get me" and the two begin to kiss.
Dani apologizes to Hicks for what happened to him and it looks as if she feels guilty.
Harken and Rose wonder how Parish knew they were going to be at Skyler's. He wants to keep the investigation hush-hush. The camera focuses on Dani as the episode ends.
Hide description ▲
We see the teenager named Jason from the hospital at a dance. He is striking out with a girl until he uses a power that seems similar to Nina's, and has dozens of kids in a zombie-like state doing his bidden. It seems to involve him touching the person he manipulates.
Kat has become a full member of the team. The team talks about Jason's case and then interviews two of the students who were at the dance. Both say they don't know Jason.
Harken gives Rose an update on the process of checking to see if anybody on the team is responsible for the leaks to Parish.
Looking at the brain activity of the two kids, Rosen thinks Jason's powers have been magnified. He's able to create a "hive mind" situation, controlling large amounts of people simultaneously.
Parish and Dani talk about her father. She's upset by how much she's had to risk, given that Rosen doesn't seem any closer to their side.
Rosen is unable to restore the normal brain activity of the two kids. Nina attempts to help and finds their brains muddled. They need to find Jason if there is any chance of breaking the connection.
Rosen finds Jason at his school. While he speaks with Rosen a flock of students begin following him in the hall. Rosen wants to run some tests, but Jason declines. Rosen says he's worried Jason might be hurting his friends and Jason gets a security guard to pull his gun on Rosen. Parish shows up and knocks the guard aside, telling Rosen "we should talk."
Parish tells Rosen he is partly to blame because he interrupted Jason's treatment. He wants Rosen to step in and save him and asks him to join him in the car to see some test results. Rosen declines, but Parish directs a threat at Dani and he quickly changes his mind.
We see Burton doing a TV interview. She begins acting very strangely and Nina is worried.
Parish shows Rosen the brain scan of Jason's mother. It is filed with hematomas and Rosen says she'll die if not brought quickly to the hospital. It seems that everybody "connected" to Jason will eventually die if the connection isn't broken.
Nina wants to show Burton's doctors a file with clues as to what it happening to her. The file doesn't have anything incriminating, but Rachel thinks it's a risk. She calls Rosen on the phone and doesn't like the way his voice sounds.
Parish says his goal was for Jason to wake from his coma with more control. Parish wants Nina to go into Jason's mind, thinking it won't be as dangerous because he can help her navigate. Rosen tells the team to begin looking for Jason.
Cut to Jason fooling around with a girl from his school. He has her begin to undress, then decides he wants her to actually want to be doing it. She doesn't and he seems bothered by the situation. Hicks, Harken and Rachel arrive at Jason's house. The first floor is filled with his "friends." Hicks tells Jason they're there to help him and he sounds okay with the idea. But outside Jason changes his mind and the kids under his control start to protect him. Jason runs and is eventually caught by Hicks and Gary. They throw him in a car and speed off.
Parish gives Nina advice as to how best to attack Jason's brain in order to break his control. Afterwards he's brought to a holding area by Hicks and Harken. On the way past Gary, Parish suggests that Rosen may have been part of the reason Anna was killed.
Rosen has picked up on the fact Parish was trying to recruit him. He realizes Jason was used as bait.
Jason tells Rosen he doesn't want to break his hold on the kids, because if he does he'll be alone.
Parish cuts his own throat while in custody.
Rosen tells Jason what is happening to the kids under his control, but Jason doesn't believe him. He says he wants to leave and all of the kids arrive to help him.
Parish uses his fake death to get the jump on two security guards and get out of his holding cell
Hicks and Harken let the kids into the facility in order to keep them from hurting themselves. Jason is missing and Rosen realizes Parish must be connected.
Rosen finds that Jason has brought Parish into his collective. To help him, Rosen asks that he be brought in as well. Jason's collective looks like the dance. Parish is taking people away from Jason and bringing them under his control. Rosen manages to convince Jason to set everybody free. During this process Rosen and Parish look arms and Rosen gets a window into Parish thoughts.
The kids are set free. Rosen wakes up and helps Jason to his feet. Parish is gone.
Nina and Rachel seems to be connecting again as friends. Nina is going to take her file to Burton's doctor.
In Hicks' office Rosen sees one of Dani's newest paintings. He recognizes it from Parish's mind and seems to be putting everything together.
Hide description ▲
Rosen meets with Clay and asks him about the investigation into the mole. He's clearly concerned about Dani being discovered.
The team watches video of the kids jumping from the roof. Harken is put in charge and he tasks Gary with looking into the possibility alphas are involved.
Rachel and John are going to dinner with her parents. She's nervous.
Rosen gives Gary a secret mission.
Hicks's son Tyler comes to town for a visit. He introduces him to Dani.
Gary finds pictures of Kat hanging out with Dylan, who seems to be the mastermind behind the drugs. The drug is called Jump. Dylan's having a party that night and Kat wants to go see him.
It's clear when they meet that Kat and Dylan had a romantic history, though she obviously doesn't remember. She ends up taking a Jump pill and jumping off the roof with Dylan.
Harken is upset with Kat, but she is proud of herself for getting the drug in her blood stream.
Gary cracks the code, pulling out a number of phone numbers from Parish' phone that the NSA were looking into. Rosen asks him to pull out active New York area numbers.
Hicks talks to Dani about being concerned Tyler might be an alpha.
Rachel looks at Kat's blood and gets a sense of what is in the drug. Unfortunately several users of Jump have died recently of heart-related issues.
Rosen pays Dani a visit. They make some small talk and when she's in the other room he cross-references numbers on her phone with what Gary found. It seems to be proof for Rosen that she is the mole.
Clay tells Rosen that he's stepped up the manpower on the investigation.
Rachel tells Nina she's cancelled the dinner with her parents. She seems concerned that her parents might like John and she won't be ready for a relationship.
Kat has a meal with Dylan. She seems to like him. Kat doesn't want Harken to arrest Dylan. She thinks she can get a confession out of him on her own.
Hicks has Tyler play baseball, seemingly to see if he might be an alpha. Tyler hates it and wants to go home.
Kat gets Gary to help her see Dylan.
Rosen asks Nina if she can get a passport under a false name. He hands her a picture of Dani.
Dani returns home to find Hicks trying to convince Tyler to stay. She sits Tyler down and tells him she's an alpha. She uses her power to show Hicks and Tyler how each other has been feeling.
Rosen tells Nina what's happened and says he wants to get Dani someplace where Clay and Parish can't find her. Nina thinks Rosen should let Clay do his job.
Kat gives Dylan a head's up that he's about to be arrested. He's furious that she betrayed him. In the back of his apartment Kat finds that he's been using the blood of an alpha to make the pills. Kat tries to rescue the woman, but Dylan knocks her down and leaves with the alpha. Kat takes one of the pills and uses it to jump off the roof and onto Dylan's car. She pulls him out of the vehicle and beats him senseless.
At the airport Dani gets a text from Parish to meet somebody at a park
Kat is upset they weren't able to make anything stick with Dylan. Harken cheers her up and tells her he's signed her up for the FBI academy.
Rosen meets Dani at the park. He was the one who sent the message. They argue and eventually Clay and John arrive on scene with guns drawn. Rosen says he needs her to be safe.
Hicks is furious with Rosen for turning in Dani. He yells that Rosen was "supposed to protect her."
Rosen goes to see Dani in custody. She asks him if she can be put in Building 7. She says she wants to forget. Rosen tells her there is a way out.

We then see Rosen tell the team that he's having trouble reaching Dani and is worried she's in trouble. He clearly never told the rest of the team about Dani's deal and Hicks is furious that he put her in harm's way. It was the only way to keep her out of Building 7, but Hicks thinks it was too risky.
TWO WEEKS LATER
We see what looks like a theft of some kind. The team is there to stop and it seems like Hicks is in the crime.
Hicks has left the team and the gang isn't sure why, though they suspect it's Dani-related.
We see Hicks with Scipio.
What was stolen was a type of electric grenade capable of killing hundreds of people in one detonation. Rosen tells the team finding these grenades is job No. 1, even ahead of finding Hicks and Dani.
Back to Hicks telling asking Scipio for a face-to-face with Parish, feeling like he deserves it for helping get his "little toys." Scipio says that first Hicks will have to do something. He is introduced to Agnes, who ties him to a chair and says that when she touches someone it "rips open their mind." She touches his head and he begins screaming. She sees images of Hicks interacting with Dani.
Harken asks Gary to look into the robbery.
Hicks finally gets his audience with Parish, who says it's not possible for him to see Dani right now. Parish says he's keeping Dani safe until he's sure where her loyalties lie. He adds "welcome aboard, Mr. Hicks."
Rosen tells Nina that whatever happens to Dani and Hicks, "it's my responsibility."
Parish tell Dani about having Hicks. She asks him not to hurt him, and he says he's there to give her one last chance to change his mind. He's talking about wiping the slate clean, essentially killing lots of people. She says she's with him, but he needs to know for sure and says Agnes will be calling on her.
Harken and Gary have realized that Nina helped Hicks get away from the robbery.
Parish tells Agnes he needs to know what Dani told her father. Before Agnes can begin Hicks break in and stops her. Agnes needs to know how she didn't see what he was up to and touches his face. We see Nina helped disguise his true plans from Agnes. Agnes is so impressed she gives them a ten-minute head start. Outside Dani tells Hicks that Parish owns a shipping company, which will probably be part of his plan.
Rosen tells the team that Parish is planning some of sort of device that will combine all of the grenades.
Dani and Hicks are grabbed by Scipio and one of his buddies. An alpha comes in and whispers something to Hicks, which causes him to grab a gun and place it under his own chin. At this moment Harken, Nina and Rachel arrive to save the day, though Scipio manages to escape.
Hicks chases Scipio down, disabling his van using a motorcycle. The grenade has been turned into an IED of some kind. With the bomb squad running late Gary works to turn off the power, which should limit the bomb's power. In order to buy even more time Dani calls Parish and tells him she's standing next to the bomb. While they talk, Parish's assistant notices the grid being shut down. With Dani now alone in the van, Parish detonates the device.
The bomb doesn't serve its full purpose, but Parish says "It did what we needed. It has begun."
Rosen rushes to Dani, who is barely conscious. She struggles for breath and Rosen tells her he loves her. Nina tries to help, but it's too late. Dani dies.

The team processes what has happened. Clay shows up with his…
The team processes what has happened. Clay shows up with his team, looking for intel. They head right for Rosen's office and nobody is happy about it. Clay asks the alphas team to help him pull together information.
John stops by to see Rachel. He gives his condolences and she asks him to "take me home."
A woman stops by the office with a baby looking for Rosen. She says she can't come back later and leaves the baby with Gary.
Hicks asks Nina to push him into forgetting Dani. She won't do it.
Gary shows everybody the baby, with whom he seems to be connecting rather well.
Rosen goes to Dani's place to look around. While looking through her stuff, Rosen's flashes to his statement to Clay about what happened with his daughter.
Rachel and John start to fool around. Rachel doesn't look happy.
Gary tells Harken the woman told him the baby was "special. Hicks rips Clay for not taking care of Parish sooner. Clay drops the bomb that Rosen invited them into the department.
Gary finds online that the woman who dropped off the baby was Magda Ryan. Jane and Brian Kessler arrive, claiming to the parents of baby Adam. Harken asks for some ID and they say the Ryan woman took Adam because she thought he was an alpha and wanted Rosen to examine him.
Following sex, neither Rachel nor John look especially happy.
Wtill in Dani's room he recalls talking to Clay about Dani's covert work. Rosen talks about Parish.
Gary continues to related with baby Adam on some level. Harken comes in to get the baby and Gary tells him no, pushing him out of the room and locking the door. Harken and Nina try to talk some sense into Gary, who thinks it's suspicious that Brian and Jane don't have anything other than driver's licenses.
Clay tells Harken that their department will be HQ for the Parish investigation.
Rachel and John have coffee and talk about why the sex wasn't great. John thinks it felt like Rachel was distant. She tells him that her first time was overwhelming because of all the senses. She mentions that he hid his scars. He talks about his ex and they start to kiss. At this moment her father walks in. It seems to bother them and they go back to it after he leaves.
Hicks finds Rosen in Dani's place. Hicks is upset that Clay is in charge of the investigation and Rosen isn't doing enough to find Dani's killer.
Harken tells Brian and Jane that Gary is autistic and has for some reason made a connection with their son. They don't want Rosen anywhere near the situation and give Harken 30 minutes to fix things before they call the police.
Harken asks Brian about Gary's record suspicions, while Nina uses her ability on Jane in another room. Jane admits they aren't the baby's real parents and the woman who brought the baby in took care of him in the lab. Brian and Jane turn the tables on Harken and Nina and it becomes clear they are alphas. They demand Gary give them the baby, but Gary refuses. Harken and Nina get back in the fight and take them out.
Another flash to Rosen's statement to Clay, this about the grenade explosion that killed her. Rosen looks at her art and recalls saying that whatever happens to Dani was his responsibility.
Rosen returns to the department and tests the baby's blood. He finds that Adam has the ability to increase the hormone to protect in anyone he comes in contact with. Rosen gives Gary something to drink that returns his levels to normal.
The sex goes much for Rachel and John this time around.
Harken and his wife bring Adam home. It's temporary, but she seems interested in keeping him.
Hicks and Rosen talk again. Rosen reminds him that they weren't the ones who killed her. Hicks wants to get to Parish before Clay does, and Rosen seems to like the idea.

Rosen tells Clay…
Rosen tells Clay he isn't sure the approach will be effective. One of the addresses on the list triggers something in Rosen's memory.
Rose shows Hicks the address, telling him it's a critical location and they need to get their before Clay's guys do. Kat will join Hicks on what is her first mission. Gary tells everybody his mother was in a car accident.
Inside the house Hicks and Kat find a man who appears to not to have his wits about him. His name is Mitchell and he tells them things about his life that couldn't possibly be true. They ask Mitchell why he's locked up in the room by himself and he says it's because he's very important to Stanton Parish. Rosen tells Hicks to bring him in, as he must be important.
Senator Burton drops by Rosen office, telling him she'll be acting as senate liaison to the Parish taskforce. She asks about Parish's weaknesses and wants to be brought up to speed. She thanks Rosen for providing her doctors with information that saved.
Rosen is furious at Nina for giving Burton a paper trail with which she was able to find him. He doesn't want Burton to see Nina, so he tells her to leave.
At the hospital Gary tells Harken he wants to leave. While there is finds the manifest from Parish's shipment out of Chinese.
In the car Hicks is growing tired of Kat and Mitchell. Mitchell says he's responsible for Dani's death, at which point somebody begins shooting at their car from a bridge. The person jumps onto their car and appears to be killed when he's thrown off of it. But after the threesome leave the totaled car to look for help, the man miraculously un-breaks his neck gets to his feet. Hicks puts his gun to Mitchell's head and asks about Dani. Mitchell puts his hand on Hicks' hand and shows him a memory of Dani.
Harken gets a call from Rosen and has to leave Gary at the hospital.
While walking through the woods for help Kat and Hicks decide that Mitchell is being used as storage for all of Parish's memories. They realize how important he would be for intelligence.
The guy who jumped on Hicks' car goes into a convenience store and buys a ton of milk. He starts chugging it and his bones continue to repair themselves.
Mitchell tells Hicks and Kat that the Caretaker will be coming to save him. He suggests this Caretaker can heal from broken bones. Hicks tells Kat she doesn't understand what it's like to remember.
Rachel and Rosen figure out that Parish's shipment contains the parts to build a machine that can instantly increase an alphas's powers.
Mitchell offers his memory-assisting services to Kat. She turns him down, then changes her mind when she sees a woman wearing a familiar blue dress. Unfortunately it turns out to be from a commercial Kat saw. It is the only memory of hers he can find.
Burton tracks down Nina, telling her she's spoken with Clay about her. Burton is losing her mind and joined the taskforce to find out if somebody working for Parish pushed her. Burton then remembers it was Nina.
Rosen, Harken and Rachel find Parish's container from China empty. Rachel can tell it has been filled with boxes, meaning Rosen already has the devices.
Gary's mother wakes up with Gary by his side. She begins to crash and a team rushes into the room.
Nina tells Rosen she thinks letting Burton know was the right thing to do. Rosen leaves to meet with the senator and smooth things over. He finds in the elevator. She's furious and has spent the past few hours compiling evidence to destroy his team. He explains the rationale behind what they did, and leaves her with a reminder that he and his team are dangerous.
While trying to find new transportation, Hicks is accosted by the Caretaker. The Caretaker knocks him out and when Kat calls Hicks' phone, says "Let's trade" and gives her five minutes to figure things out. Kat uses Mitchell to help her figure that the Caretaker requires a ton of calcium. Kat calls back and gives him a location to meet.
Harken returns to the hospital and Gary tells her his mother had a bigger stroke.
At the meeting point Kat drives a Mack truck into the Caretaker, pinning him into another vehicle and sending him into the water. Hicks is nowhere to be found and it looks as if the Caretaker may be resurfacing. Kat realizes that Hicks was in the vehicle and rushes to save him. She tells him she knew the Caretaker would sink because of his bone density while healing.
Rosen meets with Mitchell. Mitchell shows him the memory of his last meeting with Parish. Parish says he can't let Dani's death be in vain and promises Mitchell he'll grow old in a better world.
Kat tells Hicks about the TV commercial being her only memory. She says she doesn't like how it feels to kill the Caretaker.
Rosen tells Hicks that Parish doesn't use Mitchell to store plans, but rather to store feelings. He tells Hicks that he cares quite a bit about Mitchell and Dani, and his humanity is a weakness that can be exploited. Mitchell is sent to Building 7 and his home burned.

The Parish tasks force discusses Parish systematically striking around the city. Rosen tells them that in two days it will be the 150th anniversary of Parish finding out he is an alpha. Harken wants to find a way into Parish's head and Rosen references using Mitchell. They agree to let Kat help move him to a psychiatric facility.
Parish talks to his team about a plan for transitioning the alphas to the new world. It was Dani's idea. Rosen tells Harken he wants to try something off the books, but Harken doesn't think they have time. Rosen then goes to Hicks.
The caravan taking Mitchell to the facility is ambushed by Parish's men. Mitchell is taken from the truck. Kat gives chase but he's gone.
At Parish's camp they remove Mitchell's chip. Nobody seems to know where Scipio is. It seems as if Mitchell's memories are gone and Mitchell blames an IV Rosen gave him. Mitchell is happy that for the first time in years "I feel like me."
Rosen and Nina talk and we see that Mitchell being taken was Rosen's plan. They have Scipio in their custody. He says he wants a lawyer. Nina pushes him and he tells them Parish has been getting shipments for months. He doesn't tell them anything else and they give him a drug.
Harken notices that nobody is around. Gary has found a way to communicate with Skyler.
Cut to Skyler at home with Zoe. She's working on a component for a man named Vince who is a friend of the family. Outside we see that Vince is working for Parish. He's furious that so far Skyler hasn't delivered.
Nina still can't get anything out of Scipio. They give him different drugs and Rachel is worried that they might be wasting time. The next step is giving Nina some stimulants.
Harken wants Gary to look for Rosen. He tells him that he, Nina, Rachel and Hicks are all out of range. Kat shows them somebody used a tranquilizer on Scipio and nobody on their team had that weapon.
Skyler figures out that somebody is trying to call them. She reaches out to the signal.
Hicks brings Meg in to see Scipio. But it turns out to be Nina and Scipio sees right through the trick. Scipio starts talking to Rosen about Dani. Rosen then injects him with adrenaline, which triggers his ability and causes him to burn himself with his own hands. Rachel doesn't like it.
Skyler realizes something is up. Vince has taken Zoe and won't give her back unless she finishes the project. We see that the whole thing is a trick, with Skyler and Zoe laying on beds at Parish' compound with IVs. Parish uses Mitchell to transfer what he is feeling and thinking. "I'm about to change the world. It's just a shame so man people have to die."
As Rosen presses Scipio for information Harken and Kat pull up. Rosen flees just as Harken enters with his team, saying what he knows is too valuable.
Gary tells Harken he knows where Skyler is. Harken and Gary pull up at the location and remove the IVs from Skyler and Zoe. The show Skyler a series of sketches hanging from the wall that appear to be her designs.
Hicks and Rosen arrive at Parish's "Adjustment Center" and realize what he must be planning. They see his plans and Rosen tells Hicks he must leave with the information. Hicks gives him his gun and takes off.
Skyler tells them about being forced by Parish to build a strobe device that boosts the power of alphas. But it kills non-alphas. Based on the shipping there are probably millions out there. Hicks arrives with Parish's plans.
Rosen finds Mitchell and hears about some of Parish's plans. Rosen sees Parish leaving and tells Mitchell he needs to hide for two days. Rosen attempts to follow Parish but is shot in the stomach.

The team spots Rosen on closed-circuit cameras at the hospital. They try to figure out why he took what he took.
Gary's mother wakes up and tells him to go help Rosen.
Rosen spots Parish at Grand Central Station. Parish smiles and looks at his pocket watch.
The country's power grid begins shutting down. The team is able to flip the switch for New York, which plunges the city into darkness. But for some reason the lights start coming back on.
Gary meets Rosen at the station. He insists that he stay and help him.
The team plans to search for the power source. Gary calls Nina and tells her he's found Rosen and Parish. The command center is being moved to FEMA. John wants Rachel to come with him, but she refuses. He tells her he loves her.
Kat remembers that there is an 80-year old generator under Grand Central Station with enough power to light half of Manhattan.
A man hands Rosen a phone. Parish is on the line. He tells him about a storage closet with the light disabled and advises him to go inside.
The team arrives at GCS. They get in an elevator and head for the basement. Rachel hears guns being cocked and gives them just enough head's up to avoid being killed when the doors open. They're able to get past Parish's men. Kat has Harken throw her behind two of the gunmen, allowing her to take them out. The generator is old, which concerns Skylar.
Rosen confronts Parish by the subway tracks. He says he killed Dani "for the greater good." Parish says in a few minutes he'll be a mass-murderer. Dani stands next to Rosen, begging him to kill Parish. Rosen won't, saying his daughter wouldn't have wanted it that way. At this point Hicks shoots Parish in the back. As Parish starts to heal, Hicks tells Rosen to use his drugs. Rosen says no, arguing that if they let him live Parish will have to live with his pain forever.
Kat and Skylar figure out that there is another breaker, meaning they can't shut down the generator from there. Also they won't be able to shut down the power at GCS, meaning they themselves are in trouble.
The explosion goes off, dropping everybody to the ground except Gary. He walks among the bodies, looking for Harken. He finds his friends by the subway track, seemingly dead.
