Outline

After Erica discovers Malik is a Visitor sleeper agent, they fight but Erica manages to knock Malik out. Jack and Hobbes arrive at the scene, taking Malik with them to gain information. When Anna learns that Malik is missing, she orders Ryan to find her. Anna also asks Chad to interview Jack and uses it against him when she sends a V to his church to provoke a fight, which is caught on video with the help of Tyler, making Jack look violent. Malik refuses to give answers to the Fifth Column until she gets skinned, finally giving Erica information regarding a young runaway girl whose life is in danger at the hand of the Visitors. Erica learns that Tyler’s DNA is incomplete and realises that the Visitors did this to him while she was pregnant with him, but wonders why. Lisa realises her body is beginning to change as she approaches the breeding phase of her life. Anna tells her to embrace the changes, and tests Lisa by forcing her to kill a human that they are experimenting on. The Fifth Column rescues the girl Malik mentioned, and reunites her with her mother. Anna visits Diana again as she continues to look for a way to isolate the soul in humans, and gloats that Lisa is approaching the breeding phase of her life. However Diana warns Anna that her daughter will eventually turn on her, much like Anna turned on Diana. Anna reveals to Tyler that she considers him to be like a son. When Chad finds out he was used by Anna, Jack introduces him to the Fifth Column members. After Malik dies, Ryan is reunited with his daughter onboard the mothership and tells Anna he knows the location of the Fifth Column.
