Still seeking Zoe's Avatar program, Clarice redoubles her efforts to gain Amanda's confidence. Lacy's attempts to enlist the help of Barnabas have fallen short, producing tension between her and Zoe. Zoe continues her 'romance' with Philomon, a young scientist in her father's employ, in hopes that he can assist her in getting her out of the lab.
Tomas meets with Daniel and informs him of the rumor that Daniel's company only has one working MCP chip. At a C-Bucs game, he further attempts to pressure Daniel by telling him that he knows the MCP never worked for him. Behind a restaurant, Joseph corners Tad Thorean, a.k.a Heracles, and compels him to help find his daughter.
They both enter the game, but Heracles is soon "killed" helping Joseph, meaning he can never return to V-world and that Joseph is now on his own. Amanda, meanwhile, has been haunted by visions of her brother Darius, who died in a car crash several years ago, and reveals to Clarice (at the Dive Bar) that she "totally lost it" when he died. Joseph, now totally lost and clueless, is confronted by and hires the mysterious Emmanuelle as a guide. Daniel, based on Zoe's generative-analog theory (passed on via Philomon), finally suspects that Zoe's avatar is inhabiting the Cylon's MCP.
