Following the Ortiz incident at Breakwire, Martin, Jake and Lucy either have to go on the run or go into hiding because of the detailed information that was inadvertently provided to the authorities. Through the latest number provided by Jake, they run into Calvin, who they ambush. Calvin is willing to help them as he knows that Aster Corps, most specifically his former partner Tony Rigby, was behind his mother's murder and Amelia's latest abduction probably with Kase's help. Calvin doesn't know where Amelia is beyond probably being at one of Aster Corps' many isolated facilities. Using Calvin's equipment, Jake goes on his own mission to connect with Amelia. In doing so, he accomplishes two tasks, namely putting the last piece in the puzzle for Calvin to bypass the brain injury to William Norburg so that William will be able to function again, and locating Amelia. As such, Calvin on one side, and Martin, Lucy and Jake on the other, part company to achieve their individual goals. ...
Did You Know?
One lingering effect of William's brain damage is the presence of aphasia, mentioned by Calvin. This is dramatized by the halting effort to speak, including difficulty in finding words. In at least two instances, William employs word substitutions, known as paraphasia. The type displayed is verbal (or semantic) paraphasia: "aria" instead of "voice," and "apples" instead of "avalanche." These two word substitutions help explain some theories of how words are mapped in the brain. In the case of "aria" for "voice," the semantic "web" is based on associated meanings, and in the case of "apples" for "avalanche," the "web" is based on similar phonetic codes (the short /ae/ in word-initial position).
