Dr. Crombel is at the institute checking the cause of Mary's death and wondering who her opponent was. He is given the file with results from the site investigation. It includes Jake's DNA but the scientist notices that Jake's data is altered which leads him to question the faculty present there. They explain that they were threatened by Jake and had been forced to perform the experiment on him. Rather than getting upset or angry, Dr. Crombel asks about the result of the experiment. They explain that the experiment was initially fine but it started to break down later on.
While discussion was going on, the Infected suddenly starts shouting. Crombel claims that they should dispose of the Infected as it is going to be useless to keep him. Much to Crombel's surprise, the Infected states that he did everything he was told to do. Wondering if there were any changes to the body of M-21 and M-24, Crombel orders a thorough investigation on the Infected's body.
Frankenstein suggests that Rai should go and meet the children while M-21 apologizes for involving them in the mess. Frankenstein tells him that it was his partner who protected the children and he feels sorry for him. M-21 explains that his comrade wouldn't have regretted what he did as he had a soft spot for kids. Frankenstein questions him about their mission, but M-21 says that if the mission was of higher importance then the Union would have sent better agents and not them. Frankenstein inquires about the presence of Mary and Jake, which leads to a discussion about Dr. Crombel. M-21 tells them that he might be present in the Union's local branch. Much to his shock, Frankenstein and Rai decide to go to the branch to meet Crombel because the children are now involved in all the mess.
