Anna explains to her that they’ve all been kidnapped and need to work together to get out of this alive. Cassandra doesn’t believe Anna, who tells Cassandra she’s been in a coma for eight months with a rare virus of her own creating. Finn cracks that she finally got that rare disease she always wanted. Anna asks her to pretend to be unconscious and see if she recognizes their kidnappers and their employers. If she can help them then Finn will treat her, otherwise he can just as easily put her back into the coma.
