Dr. Alicia Seberg calls Jane from the Zitek Biosystems lab at Los Corrados to report she's (being) murdered: someone opened a flask of airborne Cryptohansa-B, one of the biological warfare germs Zitek develops antidotes against. Alas this one needs to be taken in advance. Her husband Dr. Cliff Edmunds and further colleagues Griffin Welks, Dr. Florian Tripp and Lilith Nash also had access to it. Alicia had an affair but Cliff knew and both accepted an 'open marriage'. Jane discovers the biometric access equipment was disabled for two months and manager Price knew. Janes takes offense at CDC inspector Dean Harken's arrogant rank pulling and sets an apocalyptic trap.

I want to be with my mother.
