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.
The Mallrats have encountered a literal roadblock on their way to Eagle Mountain, but they’re saved by the sudden arrival of BRAY and EBONY in one of the Locos’ buses. BRAY’s reception by AMBER, however, is chilly, much to his confusion. But just when all hope seems to be lost, the Mallrats finally reach their destination and are delivered one final message from the long-lost adults, which places them securely in the driver’s seat of their own destiny.
Prompted by JACK’s insistence and TAI SAN’s vision, which seems to confirm his hunch, the Mallrats agree to leave their home for Eagle Mountain. At the Locos’ headquarters, BRAY attempts to convince EBONY to leave the notorious gang and come back to the mall with him. Her feelings on the topic change drastically when SPIKE initiates his own coup d’état. As the remaining Mallrats begin to leave, AMBER’s finally written off her feelings for BRAY, but TRUDY may not let her give up so easily.
JACK believes he’s uncovered the secret to the mysterious formula, but he has a hard time convincing the others to go along with his hunch since it means potentially leaving the mall for good. AMBER remains on edge after seeing the helicopter footage of BRAY and EBONY together. Meanwhile, EBONY attempts to instill doubt of AMBER’s true feelings into BRAY’s head.
DAL and RYAN have figured out the perfect way to do reconnaissance of the Locos by attaching a small camera to the remote helicopter, but AMBER may not like what she sees when EBONY attempts to seduce BRAY. LEX returns to the mall, but he doesn’t find himself greeted very warmly by his wife.
EBONY seems to have won, having taken not only the antidote, but also LEX and BRAY. But AMBER’s not giving BRAY up so easily, and she embarks on a search for the Locos’ hideout. Meanwhile, JACK attempts to access the facility’s files with the help of KC, who fears that his time with the Mallrats is limited.
The mall has been set ablaze by TOP HAT and the Tribe Circus, and the Mallrats are hopelessly trapped inside— that is, until LEX secures a deal with EBONY and the Locos. But EBONY wants the antidote, and she’ll stop at nothing to get it. Is her deal with LEX genuine? Or is it another trap?
Just as BRAY feared, the Tribe Circus — led by the insane TOP HAT — invades the mall attempting to enslave the Mallrats, but the Mallrats aren’t giving up without a fight. Meanwhile, LEX continues to remain a prisoner to both the Locos and the virus.
