The lab tech from earlier notices his computer beeping. He immediately drops everything and makes a phone call. Max's doctor shows up and says that these results are not good. They've found a virus in one of the blood samples. The doctor asks who the patient is. The lab tech checks his files and reports that it's L. Eastwood. The doctor doesn't think that's possible, and figures out that it's really L. Eastman, and the lab tech mixed them up. She picks up the phone to call the Centers for Disease Control, or CDC.
White is hitting golf balls into the water when his phone rings. It's Otto, and he tells White about the virus detected in a patient at the hospital. White continues to hit golf balls, each one going over two hundred and fifty yards. White wonders why he should care. Otto says that the patient had a bar code tattoo on her neck, and that it's 452. White tells Otto to assemble a team and they will meet in twenty minutes.
Max wakes up in the hospital to see a CDC doctor in an orange safety suit standing over her. He tells her that his name is Dr. George and that she's being quarantined because they found a virus in her bloodstream. Max says that she's not contagious. Dr. George wants to be sure. Max says that she's going home. Dr. George wants to run some tests first. Another guy in a safety suit says that they are ready to decontaminate the area. Dr. George says that he needs to give Max an exam and check for lesions or other symptoms. Max isn't having it, and prepares to leave. Dr. George threatens to put her in restraints. Max threatens in turn to crack some skulls, but she's too weak from her surgery and blood loss to do anything. She faints. Dr. George places her back in bed.
