Johnny, Pratt, and Walt enter Rob's hospital room. Walt tosses a bag of heroin on Rob's chest and explains that it's "China White" and they found it under Rob's bed. It's funny to hear Walt talk about drugs because he's such a square. Johnny points out that a lot of flu viruses start in China. Pratt explains that the drugs couldn't have carried the virus, and that they need a live carrier. Walt asks who brought Rob the heroin. Rob plays dumb, and Walt grabs his shirt and threatens him. Johnny gets Walt to calm down, and asks to try. There's a whole show of Johnny handing off his cane to Walt just so that Rob can make a caning joke. Johnny grabs Rob's arm and goes into a vision of a beautiful Asian woman, naked. Johnny murmurs each thing he sees out loud, and Rob becomes more and more interested. She walks away from Rob, who is sitting on a bed. She gets dressed in a flight attendant's uniform. That's the last thing Johnny says out loud. Then she's looking in the mirror, very sick. Then she's dead. Johnny drops Rob's arm and apologizes. Rob asks what he's sorry about, and when Johnny says they are too late, he says that the woman's name is Tori and she's a flight attendant for Eastern Pearl Airlines. Johnny doesn't seem to want to say anything until Rob calls him a freak, and then Johnny says calmly that Tori is dead. Pratt orders Rob taken to isolation.
Navarro, Walt, Johnny, and Pratt are in the morgue. A body bag is unzipped to reveal Tori, the Eastern Pearl flight attendant. Pratt says that they have their first fatality. Navarro says that they have to talk.
In a lab, Johnny flips through The Big Book of Nasty Stuff. He comes upon a picture of flesh-eating bacteria, which is super-grody, and slams the book shut. Pratt says that the virus originated in China, and Navarro says that they know. Johnny wonders how they knew. Navarro explains that after Johnny's "initial inquiry," they issued "an infectious disease bulletin looking for any other E.R. admissions with similar symptoms." It seems that there are sixteen other cases in the Northeast, four in critical condition, and two fatalities. Navarro says all of the cases can be traced back to the same flight that Dead Tori was on. Johnny asks what that means for J.J. Navarro says that time is not on their side. Johnny notices some lab techs injecting mice with Dead Tori's blood. Navarro says they need to isolate and identify the virus before they can treat it. Johnny asks how long that will take. Pratt says it took thirty-four days to isolate SARS, and that was super-fast. Johnny says that the kids who are currently infected don't have a month to wait. Navarro says it's not just the kids; anyone who could have been infected is under quarantine, including Johnny and Pratt. Johnny says there must be something he can do, and Navarro advises him to pray that they get lucky.
