Brennan and Shalimar in the woods investigating a series of deaths that a feral mutant is apparently responsible for. Ducking a cryptozoologist named Grady and hunters, they have an initial confrontation and Shalimar is wounded. Jesse and Emma find one of the other victims mutating into a similar creature. Grady is actually an undercover government agent. While rescuing the previous victim they find out that the original, Michael Ward, was a test subject from Genomex being used in a space program, with a virus that affects mutants. Shalimar starts getting more bestial as the others try to get to her with the cure. Shalimar is forced to kill Ward, who thanks her, before collapsing. Adam comes up with a cure for her new mutation...this time.
