McKinley meets up with White, who comments on the "old-fashioned lynching." McKinley chuckles that he hopes he didn't sound too disapproving. Then McKinley gets serious and changes the subject to CJ, noting that he escaped "during that Katara ceremony." McKinley adds that it could be bad for them, and for White especially. White promises he'll take care of it. McKinley responds, "See that you do!" They give each other the breeding cult version of "aloha" and part ways.
At Terminal City, Max and Alec finish watching the news report. Max asks Alec if he's still in touch with an arms dealer in Koreatown. Alec is, of course. Max says that they're going to need "the nastiest stuff he's got," like grenade launchers, and money is no object. Runty says, "It sort of is, when you don't got any." Alec promises that they'll get some. Dix asks what the plan is. Max says that they're going to White's headquarters to release the transgenics before White ships them off. The leader thinks that sounds good. Max asks Runty where he found "that so-called X-5 [he] brought [there] the other day." Runty met him outside on the street. Max thinks CJ is part of White's breeding cult, and she wants to know why he was there. Runty doesn't know, but he picks up the brown paper bag with the snake in it and says that CJ left it behind. The snake has just been sitting there for a few days and no one noticed? The bag is passed to Max, who opens it and then steps aside with disgust. Alec dumps the snake out of the bag so that we can see it.
Otto and the Goons (now there's a rock band name for you) stomp into Jam Pony HQ and walk up to Normal. Sketchy sees them and hides behind a wall. OC asks him what's going on. Sketchy recognizes Otto as the guy who questioned him after he chased the transgenic in the sewer. Otto holds up a badge and asks Normal if he recognizes it. Normal says that it's a Jam Pony ID badge. Otto and Aryan Goon say that they found it on the body of a transgenic last night, and they want to know how it got there. Normal says that he had no idea Biggs was "one of them," and if he had, Biggs never would have been hired. OC has heard enough. She sneaks into Normal's office and opens a filing cabinet. Sketchy crouches down behind a counter so that he can hear the conversation. Otto asks Normal how many transgenics he employs. Normal says that there are none that he knows of. Otto and Aryan Goon don't believe him. Normal starts yelling about how he hates and loathes transgenics. OC grabs some files out of the cabinet and sneaks out of the room just as Otto and Aryan Goon rush in. Do they think that it's going to say "Transgenic" on the file? I don't know. Normal is all for them looking at his files.
