This episode begins with a flashback to the Strucker family one year ago, while they’re on a family trip. Andy is trying to teach Lauren to skateboard and when she almost falls, Andy grabs her hand only to find that something happens when they do.
In the present, Reed remembers parts of his childhood where his dad always resented him. Caitlyn talks to him about the death of Reed’s father in the previous episode, and about the family line of mutant genes, so Reed tells Caitlyn what his dad did to ‘cure’ him. Later, Caitlyn brings up that their lives would be different if Auto or Lauren told them they were mutants. Reed mentions about the siblings (Auto’s father and aunt), and Caitlyn wants to tell the kids.
Esme talks with Lorna, Johnny, Marcos and the others about what she saw and felt when she read Chloe’s mind. Esme wants to go into Sentinel Services to take them down, and brings up Pulse, but Marcos shuts her down. Johnny is still very upset about Pulse and wants to go with Esme’s plan.
Lauren and Andy talk about their grandpa and Andy finds a book about the siblings and how destructive they were. Lauren argues that they were bad, Andy tries to disagree, but Lauren shuts him down. Later, Caitlyn and Reed tell them about Auto’s father and aunt and get them to try it out in the vault, but nothing happens at first. Then, once they concentrate harder, something starts to happen, but Reed stops them before it goes too far, which could have been taking down the entire building.
A little later, Lauren and Andy explain what happened and say it was like they had the same set of eyes. Andy wants to practice it, but everyone stops him. Reed says that he can’t because he can’t control his own powers, and so Andy runs off and Lauren follows. They discuss what happened a year ago, and want to try again, but don’t want to risk it.
Campbell is in the hospital with bad burns from the explosion Auto created, but refuses surgery. Turner comes in and argues to make another move against the mutants, with or without protocols. Turner then calls his wife saying he is going to be late and is determined to continue with this unauthorised project.
Sage can’t find the Trask building, but gets a lead and Lorna and Sonya decide to go and try to get information. Later, they use their abilities and get information on Trask and the lab. The main group of the underground is trying to create a plan for them to get into the Trask lab, Esme is very persistent, but Johnny calms her down.
Earlier, Lorna had a dream about being in the Trask building, Marcos is captured and so is their baby. She wakes up from her dream and as Marcos consoles her we see Esme looking suspicious. Later, Marcos talks with Lorna about her dream, and Lorna reveals that she’s scared the underground won’t make it. Esme then interrupts with an idea about how to get into the lab by using the Strucker kids. They then go and talk with them to get them onboard, but Reed and Caitlyn are unsure about it, except they agree and the plan continues.
They make their way to the Trask lab, and Esme is nervous about the plan, she then looks into Lorna’s mind and sees the night that she got taken in. Marcos and Johnny, get to the edge of the fence and start joking about Pulse. Marcos reassures him that he’s not the only one that lost Pulse. As the others get in the building, Lorna and Esme start getting ready to get in themselves. Some seem unsure, but Esme is determined that it will be fine.
The Strucker family makes it to the place and Sage gives them footage of the security cameras, while Clarice portals Andy, Lauren, Sonya and herself into the building. Caitlyn and Reed navigate them through the halls to the transporter room.
As they are getting through, Turner finds out about the security guard Lorna and Sonya got information from and sends for a tactical team as the mutants are getting in the lab.
Turner finds that they are in there and starts heading for them and so are the machines they barely escaped in the first episode. Johnny hears what they are doing inside and says they must leave, but Esme is fighting to stay to save her family until Johnny picks her up and takes her away. Caitlyn tells Sonya and the rest of them to get out, but they end up leaving Clarice and Sonya behind on their way out. Lauren tells Andy they have to use their special abilities to get out, but Andy says no because they will kill everyone. Both end up getting captured by Sentinel Services.
