A clash with a ruthless gang of lady criminals in New Mexico puts Grandpa Max in a hospital but it also turns the gang leader into a cyborg when one of Vilgax's damaged trackers merges with her. The resulting trouble from trackers honing in on the Omnitrix puts Ben in mind to distance himself from Max and Gwen for their safety, but it also puts Ben in contact with Vilgax for the first time.

Falling concrete injures Grandpa Max, striking him in the back and leaving him unconscious. Ben (as Four Arms) picks him up and jumps away with him to a nearby hospital. Unless there is immediate, life-threatening danger, one should never move anyone with such injuries. Further movement - especially jumping up and down as a super-alien - could severe the spinal cord that might otherwise be intact, leaving Grandpa Max permanently paralyzed. See more
Whoever possesses the Omnitrix continues to be an opponent of extreme danger and inspiring brilliance.
