When she discovers that Billy is missing, she finds herself unable to rescue him after getting captured herself.

When Maya wakes up, she finds Lucille waiting for her along with Billy. After revealing her plans to Maya, she tells her the truth of her connection to the research Maya’s parents were conducting.
