Cosima has arrived on the island where she and Susan will begin the process of finding a cure for both Leda and Castor by developing original DNA in the absence of Kendall through fertilization of one of Sarah's eggs with Ira's sperm, while Sarah and Felix meet with Rachel and Ira to discuss the next step in bringing down Evie Cho and restoring Susan as the head of Neolution. As Evie ramps up her media campaign to bring BrightBorn's work to the masses, Sarah, Rachel, Felix and Ira learn that two women, Tabitha Stewart and Kendra Dupree, have escaped from BrightBorn's facility, Tabitha near the end of her pregnancy and Kendra with her newborn. Rachel believes that what Tabitha and Kendra know and bringing it to public light is the key to exposing Evie's work. Sarah is determined for "her side" to do the work in finding the two women despite Sarah being Evie's primary target, having her side being down in human resources with both Cosima and Alison out of commission and Helena still MIA, and knowing that Evie has her operatives also tracking the two escaped women. Through the process, Sarah and Rachel still display obvious animosity toward each other. They will learn if their mistrust of the other is warranted. Meanwhile, Donnie has been released from remand with Adele still tasked with leading their legal team. In her reunion with her husband, Alison comes to some realizations about her current life, and with Donnie has to make some decisions about how to rectify what has been missing of late. Felix comes to a decision of his own about his personal life as he and Adele help the Hendrixes and as someone unexpectedly shows up on his doorstep. And Rachel continues to see visions, still of the swan but the visions more fully realized, but still without fully understanding why she is having these visions and what they mean.
