It is revealed Teri caused it so the Trags could infiltrate the school. Elsewhere, Roman frantically searches for Teri.

They hide when they hear someone coming and are surprised to learn it is Teri. She begins to steal chemicals from the lab, but is ambushed by Burke who begins to drain her blood.
