After her speech to the mob, EBONY returns to her solitude, while TAI SAN, BRAY and DANNI all try to get through to her – for different reasons. ELLIE thinks the time has come to publish the truth about the Virus, and RYAN has a proposal for SALENE.
TAI SAN tries to get through to EBONY, who has been scarred by her experience and continues to have flashbacks to her treatment by ZOOT. CLOE and PATSY are impressed by DAL’s bravery after he is attacked by the Gulls, but the escalating tensions in the city could soon put all the Mallrats in danger.
JACK and ELLIE revel in their new relationship, and the peace in the city sparks optimism in the rest of the tribe too, but with the Mallrats struggling to contain the rumours about the antidote, it may be short-lived. DANNI takes drastic action to maintain the status quo, while EBONY finds the tables have turned.
