Once again we begin with a flash forward to the future. It seems that there is experimentation on soldiers, which is deemed no big deal because they are indebted to the corporations for 20 years. It turns out that a persons state of mind can be controlled and specific thoughts can be implanted. During the testing phase, something goes wrong and the soldier attacks. It turns out that one of the scientist involved is Lucas Ingram who is a member of Liber8. For the record, Kiera saw all of this and though she look slightly troubled, she had nothing to say about the morality of what was happening. After everything that she has seen, I cannot for the life of me understand Kiera’s devotion to the corporations.
In the present day, Kiera goes to see Kellog and brings up the missing piece of the time travel device. Kellog wants to know why she wants it, because it won’t work by itself. He tells her that even if she figures out a way to get home that it may not necessarily be the same as the one she left. When Kellog starts to flirt, Kiera makes it clear that she wants nothing to do with him.
Kiera gets a call from Carlos. It seems that someone walked into a paint ball game and murdered the CEO. It turns out that this is a tech company and the one witness, a Mr.Cogburn says that he has never seen the murderer before. At a train station, a dark haired woman walks up to someone named Cole Barkley and pulls him in front of a train.
Back at the office Kiera and Carlos learn that both the woman and the murderer from the paint ball game worked as beta testers for the same company. Betty offers to go with them and Carlos tries to blow her off, but Kiera says that it’s a good idea.
At the company, they learn that Mark and Yvonne were working on the same video game. When Kiera uses her tech, she sees that Fred, Mark and Yvonne’s former boss is nervous. Kiera believes that he is hiding something and picking up on the clues Betty asks how the program works. When Fred asks a worker to run a simulation, Zack says that he has not figured out the glitch but Fred is insistent. Inside the game, Betty and Kiera are shooting weapons when a bullet slows down in front of Kiera and she passes out. Kiera says that she just needs air. When she tries to use her tech, it’s not working and she cannot contact Alec. I suppose this means we are going to be subjected to more of Kiera going on about following her gut. Also what kind of sense did it make to put on this helmet when she had no idea who it would effect the tech implanted in her brain? She’s supposed to be smart and cautious right?
Alex realizes that he has been cut off from Kiera and he calls her. She explains that she was playing a virtual reality simulation. Alec believes that something has shorted out her CMR and says that he may need to reboot her.
Back at the office, Carlos says that both Mark and Yvonne had amphetamines in their system. Betty says that this is common for gamers and that this can cause paranoia and delusions.
