There’s a guy named Montez running for Senate re-election. He’s got an anti-mutant platform and two months ago the Esme was working there. She heard Sentinel Services was coming and made a break for it.
Present day Lorna wants to storm Sentintel Services but Reed thinks it’s crazy. They argue. Marcos and John step in with a plan. Surveillance. Andy and Lauren are freaking out. He wants to use the joint power to save them but Lauren knows they can’t. Turner questions Sonia and Montez talks to Blink.
They aren’t getting very far so Turner calls Campbell about handing the prisoners over. He offers the adults but Campbell wants the Strucker kids. All or nothing. Reed and Kate debate what to do and Esme eavesdrops. She picks Turner out of Reed’s head and then goes in and presents Turner as a viable option.
Lorna is mad because Marcos is still giving the Struckers a free pass. She’s worried about the world they are bringing a kid to. Blink gives Sonia a pep talk. Reed and Kate hatch a plan to escape and find Turner. They are going to go to his house. Meanwhile Andy and Lauren meet Campbell for the first time.
He believes they can link powers and wants to test it. He puts them in a cell and shocks them for not complying. Kate and Reed talk about humanity as the drive to Turner’s house. Esme is playing both sides. She tells Marcos and Lorna that the Struckers went to Turner.
Turner is home from work. It’s been rough. He’s talking to his wife when there’s a knock at the door. It’s the Struckers and they want to talk. Marcos and Lorna go to John. They make Esme repeat her story and latch on to one detail. They think the prisoners may be moved and that might be their chance to attack. Marcos is opposed but the others are interested.
Andy and Lauren are not cooperating. The shock collars are not motivation enough. He brings in Sonia and Blink. Sonia yells at them to not give in. Campbell shoots her. She dies immediately. Lauren snaps They use the joint power and Campbell is thrilled.
Reed mostly yells at the Turners and it doesn’t help but Kate speaks calmly and lays out the facts of what is being done to the mutants in the lab, to her kids in the lab before they leave. Turner gets up to get a team to chase them. His wife stops him.
Blink is crying. Lauren feels guilty. Sonia died in vain because they used their joint power. Campbell is thrilled. He got what he wanted. Turner moves in to bring the detainees back to Sentinel Services.
Word gets back to the Underground and they roll out for their rescue mission. It’s risky so telepath (backstabbing double crosser) Esme volunteers to go in. Reed and Kate get back to HQ. They realize that Esme is a rat.
Marcos and Esme move in to get a closer look. Then she tazes him and starts messing with everyone’s minds. She gets the prisoners out and she has two clones. They kill pretty much all the soldiers except Turner. Marcos runs back to tell the others but he can’t really explain it.
What the hell? She has clones? She was shady but I didn’t see that coming. I feel bad for Lauren but don’t they have to like… actively think about it to get the power to work? They were having trouble with that in the beginning right so couldn’t they just hold hands and be like “whoops no powers”?
