Meanwhile, Peter and Maxie arrive, and Jordan asks Peter for the details of his last conversation with Lulu and where he has been the past four hours.

In Ryan’s room, he claims to Ava he dropped the TV remote and was looking for it. She helps him up as Finn returns with “Kevin’s” labs and some answers. “Kevin” contracted the same virus that affected Anna, which means his sight can be restored.
