Peter stops in a diner and befriends the waitress Krista Manning that promises to record a CD special for him. Peter waits for her in the lobby but Krista does not appear. On the next morning, while driving aimless, Peter sees a crowd, the police and a corpse. He stops his car, contacts Sheriff Ann Mathis and Deputy Bill Ferguson and learns that the victim is Krista. Further, he glances at Newton in the crowd and teams up with Mathis and Ferguson to help in the autopsy. He finds that part of the brain has been removed from Krista. Soon there are other victims with part of the brain removed and he concludes that the shapeshifter are chasing him. When Ferguson disappears, Peter helps Mathis to search for her partner. Meanwhile Dr. Bishop misses his son Peter. Written by
