The day of the tribe leaders’ meeting has arrived but not everybody who turns up is on the guest list. LEX neglects his duties in favour of hitting the gambling den, while KC comes up with an idea to uncover the secrets of TAI SAN’s antidote formula. And JACK and ELLIE step up their investigation into the origins of the Virus.
DANNI’s plans to capitalise on the Mallrats’ influence in the city put her into conflict with both TAI SAN and LEX. JACK sets out to impress ELLIE, while DAL jumps at the chance to live his dream – although it might turn out to be a nightmare for KC.
Seeking revenge after KC’s fake antidote fails to make ELLIE better, ALICE takes TAI SAN hostage at the farm. LEX and EBONY lead a rescue party but DANNI is suspicious of their motives. And a protective RYAN resents SPIKE’s presence in the mall.
TAI SAN reveals her knowledge of the antidote formula, but is keeping the information secret from the rest of the tribe a sensible precaution or a play for power? LEX and EBONY make new allies in their own bid for control of the antidote, but their partnership with each other remains shaky. Meanwhile, BOB is in danger and ALICE is on the warpath.
Unable to find the formula for the antidote, JACK and BRAY must attempt to analyse what little remains while trying to keep it out of the hands of LEX, while TAI SAN puts her trust in herbal medicine. The grateful city dwellers soon turn nasty when they suspect the Mallrats of keeping the antidote for themselves, and – as the Virus begins to spread beyond the city – ALICE takes charge of an angry and desperate mob looking for answers.
The tribe returns to the mall only to find an unwelcome guest lurking in the shadows. Elsewhere, BRAY tries to convince a mistrustful DANNI of his motives, while EBONY attempts to lure LEX back to the dark side. With the antidote in their possession the Mallrats face a dilemma over sharing it with the rest of the city, but without the formula to be able to produce more have they only earned themselves a temporary reprieve?
The Mallrats discover that there is an antidote to the Virus but their joy is short-lived when an explosion at Eagle Mountain has tragic consequences. In their grief, TAI SAN rallies the tribe to return to the city to search for the antidote that could save all their lives, although EBONY has her own reasons for wanting it. Meanwhile, a new tribe spot the satellite in the sky and begin a journey of their own.
