Carter and Jo talk to Kim. Kim is still behind glass, which is good for her because Jo is still looking pretty miffed over there. While Kim is very understanding as to why everyone thinks she attacked Zane, she thinks he suffers from some kind of brain abnormality that just chose a really unfortunate time for Kim to show up. "He was FINE until he got in there with you!" Jo barks. Gee, Carter? Do you think that maybe Jo might not be the best person to involve in this investigation right now? Kim is willing to admit that problem may have been with Zane's equipment instead of his brain, but Carter says everything checked out fine. Kim asks how she could be responsible for what happened to Lieber when she's had no contact with him, and Carter admits that they don't know the answer to that one, either. Kim finds this to be more worrying, because if proximity to someone is not a factor in whether or not she can make him electrocute himself, then she can do it to anyone. And she has no idea how or why she's doing this, and thus has no way to control it. "You should shut me down," she says, suggesting they dump her in a pool of chemicals and dissolve her. Jo smiles for the first time; "that's what I'm talking about." Carter finds Kim a bit too quick to do away with herself, and thinks perhaps it's guilt-driven over what she did to Zane and Lieber. Kim says it isn't - she's just trying to prevent more people from dying, and Carter's explanation of how she could be the cause is logical. That doesn't mean it's right, but apparently that's not so important to Kim.
Carter runs off to Henry and tells him what happened. He's not sure what to do now; if there is a person in Kim, then he can't just kill her, especially without any real evidence that she did anything wrong. "What is a person?" Carter asks; "could there be a piece of Kim in there?" Yes - one skin cell at the very least! This is like the arguments Starfleet was always having with Picard over Data when they wanted to shut him down for study or whatever. Henry says scientifically, no - Kim is dead and gone and this organic computer is not her. But realistically and after having to look at her and hear her speak ... he's been asking himself the same question since she arrived. Also, Henry is the best actor on this show. I'll be when he gets electrocuted, he does an awesome job of it. Carter says he doesn't think Kim is responsible for Zane or Lieber, and asks Henry to try to find a connection between Zane and Lieber to explain why they were both affected. And as if that's not enough, he'd like Henry to check Kim out, too. He says it slowly to soften the blow for Henry, but maybe it would be more affective if he referred to her as something other than "Kim." Henry says they don't have to save Kim to spare his feelings, and even he is calling her Kim now, however reluctant he is to do so.
