Dr. George is talking to Dr. Carr. Dr. George can't believe Carr never noticed that Max had such unusual DNA. Carr says that he never had any need to do blood work on her. Carr picks up a tabloid with a mutant story on the cover (the same one that the dude in line at the gas truck was reading) and scoffs that Dr. George thinks Max is a mutant. Dr. George tells Carr all about Manticore. Carr tells Dr. George that he's seen too many science-fiction movies. Some lackey hollers over that Linda Eastman has escaped.
Max creeps through the hospital hallways, clutching her bullet wound. She steals a gauze pad to press against the bloody wound, and grimaces in pain. A sign above her tells us that she is near the morgue.
Two security guys in full riot gear follow Max's bloody footprints into the morgue. They start pulling sheets off stiffs. Max hides on the lower shelf of a gurney, and waits until the security guys to pass by her before exiting the room.
Logan listens in on the security guy's conversation via his Magic Laptop. They says that they can't find Linda Eastman. Logan's phone rings. It's Max. Logan asks if she's all right. Max asks if he was the one sending her messages on her monitor. Max is getting dressed into regular clothes as she talks to Logan, and asks him to find her another exit. Logan is working on it, but hospital security has all the exits blocked. The phone starts squealing and gets all staticky, and Logan's laptop freezes up. Logan explains that every time the news media starts broadcasting, it interferes with the signal. Max can hardly hear him. Logan stares at the news van and tells Max to get to the roof as fast as she can. Max can't really understand him, because he's breaking up. The call disconnects. Max stands and hears security guards closing in on her. She sneaks into a duct of some sort.
