As Laura admits to Mattie that, as a child she felt responsible for her little brother's death, she is overheard by Anita, who briefly recalls how, as Mia, she lost her son. Having supposedly destroyed Fred Hobb has actually hidden him, aware that the five Synths need to meet up for collective empowerment but Fred escapes and goes on the run. Meanwhile a damaged Odi returns to George who, helped by Niska, mends him whilst Mattie contacts Max and Leo. The latter, though injured, explains how the four Synths saved him after his mother's death and how he is part Synth himself. Mattie persuades her mother to help the group but, thanks to Joe, the police give chase and things do not end well. Pete finally gets round to having sex with Karen but is shocked to reveal what she really is.

Did You Know?
[Mattie just realised she talks to one of the first sentient synths
You are one of them too, aren't you? Special, like Anita. What's it like being you?
Frightening. Confusing. Like my feelings are too big. What's it like being a teenage girl?
