Episode Summary

EDIT
Metamorphic Anthropoidic Prototype Over You
AIRED:
Austin is called in to help with investigating a claim that a "mape" (a Metamorphic Anthropoidic Prototype - i.e., an intelligent monkey) is as intelligent as its sponsor, Dr. Hardwork, claims. Josephine, the mape, is indeed incredibly smart, at nearly human levels. However, an animal activist breaks into Austin's warehouse where Josephine is being kept, and is found dead, shot to death. There seem no obvious culprits, and Austin discovers that Josephine was enhanced through illegal brain surgery. However, he also deduces that Josephine herself is the murderer: having learned such behavior from watching television shows. Austin manages to rescue Micky just before a jealous Josephine can kill her too, and regretfully, the mape is put to sleep.moreless
