An invisible horde of locust descend upon a field of genetically-engineered corn, drawing the attention of the Agency. Darien and Bobby investigate, but Darien goes into QS madness. The Keeper, disobeying the orders of the Official from the previous episode, gives her the cure she got from Arnaud. Darien is cured for good of the madness, while retaining his invisibility powers. Darien is not happy about the Official's decision and quits, but finds he can't resist being "good". He joins up with the FBI. Hobbes tries to convince him to come back to the Agency, but Darien declines and even gets the FBI to offer Hobbes a job. Hobbes is loyal to the Official (who has fired the Keeper). The FBI is on the trail of Chrysalis, but only Darien knows what's really going on. He gets the Keeper, Claire, out of her new job at the CDC and they break into Agency HQ to get the answers. The lab that maintains the corn is also working on a cure for cancer, which Chrysalis wants to disrupt. A seemingly-contrite Official offers the Agency's cooperation, so Darien, Bobby, and Claire get to the next targeted field and bug-spray the locust, killing the locust. In the end, Darien agrees to come back to work for the Agency in return for better hours and pay, and Claire's reinstatement. As the trio leaves, the Official notes that "Now we're in trouble."
