We're not wasting any time here! Hendrix has cooked up an instantanium-busting solvent and Zane and Jo will be the test subjects. He warns them of a "slight explosion," which scares Zane even though he's usually thrilled about dangerous things like that. Jo doesn't care if all of GD explodes as long as she doesn't have to be stuck to Zane anymore. There is a small explosion, but it's just in CGI so no one gets hurt. And the instantanium blows up into little bits, freeing Zane and Jo from each other. Jo gets as far away from Zane as possible, shouting "thank GOD!" in his face. Ew, it's Lexi. Why is she there? Shouldn't her access be restricted since she doesn't work at GD or even really live in town and is annoying? Jo says she was about to chew off her own leg. "Your mouth is probably big enough," Zane says. Hee.
Meanwhile, Allison and Fargo are working on trying to access the bunker's seventy-year-old computers, which is pretty much impossible. Henry walks up and says Zoe is tired, but fine, and he was able to isolate the DNA marker that the purple stuff effects. But he can't go much further without some of the purple stuff to study. With that, Allison decides she hasn't gotten enough attention today and says she's been feeling really tired too and is worried she was exposed to the purple stuff. Henry says he'll test her.
Down in the cooling chamber, Eva says this room holds the then-state-of-the-art video system that allowed the team to look in the cooling chamber without having to be exposed to it, except for the fact that they are were anyway. And that video system is still up and running, seventy years later! Amazing! Oh, but wait -- there's no purple stuff in the cooling chamber pool. There is, however, an empty pool with a huge crack in it. Carter says the instantanium explosion must have cracked it, which means it's now heading for the groundwater. Soon it'll be a race to see who dies first; Eva and Carter trapped in the tomb, or the rest of Eureka, all old and stuff.
