The Engineer and The Doctor head to a secret military base to get information. Afterward, Angie invites the team to join her in The Hive-Mind, a virtual reality powered by her nano-bots that will allow them all to experience the information they just obtained instead of simply reading it.
They learn about Dr. Jacob Krigstein and his involvement in creating dozens of S.P.B.'s during the last century. But when the Cold War ended, Krigstein was cast aside by the U.S. government so he went underground and continued to create S.P.B.'s for his own personal gain.
