The NorBAC scientists are invited to attend a meet-and-greet in Washington with Carlton Riddlemeyer, the new Science "czar" of the U.S. Government and, as it turns out, Rachel's charming, manipulative and estranged husband. But instead of getting the hoped-for $2- million needed for an electron microscope, they discover that NorBAC is on the chopping block. Unable to contain his rage, David calls Riddlemeyer "insane", and tells him that his advisors have no idea what they're doing. But rather than stay on and try to justify NorBAC's existence, the team decides to leave immediately for San Francisco to tackle a mysterious and deadly new viral outbreak.
