Sarah survives the car crash, is quickly reunited with Kira and sets off with Cal in his camper. She decides to head back to the city to find out from Mrs. S just what is going on. She also pays a visit to Rachel which doesn't quite go as expected. At the Dyad Institute, Cosima takes on the task of finding out about Project Leda. Alison awakens from her drug and alcohol stupor to find her right arm in a sling - and that she's in a rehab clinic. Felix convinces her she should spend a week there and just rest. Henrik Johanssen makes it clear to his daughter Gracie that Helena is part of their family. Gracie isn't so accepting. Art is still snooping around with his camera and sees Helena.

Even more intense!

Sarah is forced to leave Cal and Kira to go into the city to further investigate project Leda. This allows Cal and Kira to bond, leading to the most human moments of the episode.

Alison finds herself in rehab after last week's incident. Mrs. S encounters an old flame who has arrived back in town. I really have to admire the way this show constantly reveals more about the conspiracy, and yet makes you feel like you know even less.

The prolethian story reaches a head. This lead to a hilarious moment with detective Bell. It also allowed for the end of the episode, which was frankly just -- WOW! So intense. A genuinely scary scene, full of twists, turns, and violence.
