Episode Summary

EDIT
Goliath is My Name
AIRED:
"Did you see that Parkins boy's body in the tunnel?"
"Just the photos; worst thing I've ever seen. Kid had no face. What kind of monster would do that?"
When a friend of Suzanne's is murdered, the team investigates and inevitably find the aliens involved. However, their goal is even more sinister as the aliens have infiltrated a college campus to steal a dreaded virus known as Y-Fever, a toxin that can literally melt the human brain in seconds. But while traveling underground, the aliens come across fantasy game players, one of which is a jock with butterfingers. After possessing the one called Jefferson, the alien obtains the three vials... only to drop one, breaking it and becomes exposed to the virus. But instead of killing him, the virus reacts differently to the alien chemically, mutating it, and creating a highly unstable alien who continues to play the game - all while carrying the two remaining vials of the Y-Fever in his hands.moreless
