    Episode 24
    Thanks to a leak in Chrysalis, Hobbes and Darien get the goods on a politician that Allianora is trying to bribe. Realizing they have a leak, Chrysalis takes unspecified measures to stop the leak. Allianora visits Darien and tries to force him to give up the name of their contact, but he refuses and the two end having making (invisible) love. The next morning Bobby and Darien meet with the contact, only to have him killed by a Chrysalis ambush. The Keeper soon realizes that Darien was bugged with nanobots during his...encounter with Allianora. They transmit everything he sees and hears. The Official fake-executes Darien while they put an insulated helmet on him to make Chrysalis think he's dead. They then investigate a pharmaceutical firm and discover Chrysalis plans to attach the nanobot bugging devices to students at an elite school. While Hobbes and the Keeper stop them, Darien tries to lure off the Chrysalis strike team to the school pool. Using a pair of goggles, he prevents them from seeing what he sees and tracking him. Connor, the Chryalis henchman, tries to drown him but Allianora knocks the goon out and rescues Darien. Stark, her boss, shoots her and manages to escape. She dies in Darien's arms. Although the nanobot serum was destroyed, the Keeper extracts a sample from Allianora's body and uses it to cure a destitute Darien.moreless

    Presumably the audience voted yes to Hobbes' decision to join Fawkes. Darien, in end-stage Quicksilver Madness, is now obsessed with finding Arnaud. Hobbes sticks close by trying to keep him from killing random bystanders. They catch up to Arnaud, but Hobbes helps him escape when it appears that the maddened Darien will kill him. Darien abandons Hobbes, who is then approached by Arnaud. Arnaud has a malfunctioning Quicksilver gland of his own, and needs to use Darien's as a baseline to get his own fixed. In return, he'll give Hobbes Stage Five Counteragent to reverse Darien's advanced condition. Hobbes helps capture Darien, and a surgeon, Dr. Rendell, manages to adjust Arnaud's gland. Darien gets the Counteragent, but before it can take effect he tries to kill Arnaud. Arnaud escapes during the distraction when the counteragent kicks in. Later, Arnaud goes to visit Dr. Rendell when he realizes that the surgery did not go quite right, and he is permanently invisible.moreless

In response, the Official cuts off his supply of the counteragent. Arnaud contacts Darien and offers him the counteragent in return for the money. Stalemated with the Official, and with quicksilver madness coming on, Darien is tempted, but Arnaud mysteriously disappears. Darien talks with Arnaud's imprisoned brother Huiclov, who refers him to a doctor that Arnaud was visiting. darien goes to the hospital to the doctor, already red-eyed with madness.

    Episode 1
    Darien Fawkes is a con-man and thief who is captured for a third time. Rather then face California's three-strike law, he volunteers for an experiment conducted by his brother Kevin. Kevin and another scientist, Arnaud, have created a synthetic gland that secrets "Quicksilver", a substance that can bend light. They place the gland in Darien's head. He soon realizes what has happened and is none too pleased. Darien is even less happy when they discover the gland secretes Quicksilver into the recipient's brain, and enough of it drives the person insane. Darien learns to control his abilities, and soon discovers that Arnaud is up to something. Arnaud claims Darien is insane when he accuses the scientists, but then Arnaud's mercenaries break in, steal the information on the gland, and kill everyone except Darien. Darien goes to his ex-girlfriend, a doctor who is furious at him because he didn't reveal his past. She refuses to believe he can turn invisible, and then Darien is taken away by men in trenchcoats. He meets two men, the "Official" and a bureaucrat named Eberts, who tell him that Arnaud is a terrorist who is trying to duplicate the gland, and he'll have to go to Mexico and Arnaud's base of operations to try and find the duplicate gland and the method from which his gland can be removed.moreless
