Plot Summary[]

Agent 355 speaks with the pilots who helped her retrieve Yorick and asks them to remain silent. Later at night, Ampersand wanders into the corridors, and Yorick chases after him. Marla spots Yorick, but Agent 355 convinces her that it is just a vision.

Jennifer tells Yorick that he is the last surviving man with a Y-chromosome and the key to society’s future. Yorick merely wants to reunite with his girlfriend Beth and lies that he is engaged to her. Agent 355 suggests doing genetic tests on Yorick to uncover how he survived the plague. Meanwhile, Jennifer must deal with the reemergence of Regina Oliver, a radical politician who complicates the line of succession following the death of the President. Kimberly tries to rally some support and plans a coup.

Jennifer convinces Dr. Sharon Jacobs to help with the power crisis proving herself a capable leader. Agent 355 convinces Jennifer that Yorick must be moved to Boston so that Dr. Allison Mann can conduct research on him. She then asks the two pilots to help her transport Yorick. Kimberly expresses her suspicion that Jennifer is hiding something from her.

Agent 355 smuggles Yorick outside the building from under the watchful eyes of the security. She pilots one helicopter taking Yorick with her while the other two pilots lead in a different helicopter, acting as a cover. As they approach their destination, the leading helicopter erupts in flames and is destroyed.
