Plot Edit

Nomi Edit

Nomi and Amanita discuss Nomi's vision of Angelica, as well as Nomi's past as a hacktivist. Amanita recommends that Nomi write about the experience. Nomi updates her video blog, talking about how she used to be afraid of who she was. She says that her mom's favorite saint was Saint Thomas Aquinas. She declares that she is marching for the part of herself that was too afraid to march, and to remember that she is not just a "me", but also a "we". Then she tells Saint Thomas Aquinas to go fuck himself.

Later, Nomi is celebrating in Pride Parade, riding on a motorcycle along with Dykes on Bikes. She sees Jonas in the crowd and experiences a flashback to Angelica's suicide, causing her to pass out and fall on the pavement.

Nomi wakes up in the hospital to find her mother and sister standing bedside. Her mother insists on referring to Nomi as "Michael" despite her objection. Dr. Metzger arrives with an MRI image, showing that Nomi's brain has "Undifferentiated Frontal Lobe Syndrome", which he describes as "increased growth that connects the two hemispheres of her brain". He says that he will need to operate. He also says that if the condition is left untreated, she will experience hallucinations and a loss of identity, and will die within six months.

Later, Nomi tries to leave her room but a nurse informs her that she can not. Jonas visits Nomi and tells her that Metzger is planning to do a lobotomy, and that she needs to escape as soon as possible.

Amanita reaches Nomi by telephone and says that Nomi has been guarded by heavy security. Amanita says that she will burn the building down before she lets anything happen to her. Nomi mentions that she thinks she has been hallucinating Jonas. Amanita looks at Nomi's phone and finds a picture of Jonas, confirming that he's real.

Will attends a meeting where a federal agent presents details on a wanted terrorist - Jonas Maliki. Will recognizes Jones but he doesn't know how.

Will meets his dad at the bar, and says that weird stuff is happening, and that he thinks it's related to Sara Patrell. Will's father tells him not to bring up Sara again, because he'll be taken off the force for psychiatric evaluation.

Will comes in to a convenience store and asks for something that will help him sleep. Jonas enters the store and introduces himself. Jonas tells Will about Angelica, the woman who gave birth to him. Jonas tells Will about some of the things he'll experience as a sensate. Jonas says he needs to catch a plan in an hour, and that there's a girl Nomi who needs Will's help, just like Sara needed his help. Will tries to restrain Jonas but Jonas quickly dispatches him. The two engage in a car chase. During the chase, Jonas visits with Will and vice versa. Jonas asks Will not to pursue him. The car chase ends with Will's car T-boning Jonas', knocking him unconscious.
