The only way you can unlock it is with their proprietary algorithm.
I could take it into work, open the files there.
I-I would, except, um You were right.

He's a good guy.
- [TESSA.]
But? Hand me that hair tie.
He's Pat, you know? I never really thought of him that way.
Well, he's thought of you that way.
[LAUGHS.]
But it's weird.
He was my husband's best friend.
Do you know how many of my husband's friends have hit on me? - I don't, because I lost count.
- [LAUGHS.]
Look, it doesn't suck to have a nice guy treat you like a woman, does it? - No.
- All right then, girl.
Have you some fun.
Come on.

He might surprise you.

You never know, girl.
Ooh-whoo! - [LAUGHS.]
- [NICOLE.]
Mmm, you know But he is so good with Dion, you know, and I just don't want to mess that up.
Things got messed up whether you wanted them to or not, all right? Look, he wants to take you out, have a good time, I say let him.
Let him, girl.
- A nice restaurant.
- [WOMAN.]
Mm-hmm.
[TESSA.]
Get you some appetizers and dinner.
Dessert, after dessert and appetizers.
- [LAUGHS.]
- [TESSA.]
I'm telling you.
- Shoot.
We could all go to dinner.
- [WOMAN.]
Mm-hmm.
Does he have friends? - [LAUGHS.]
- Is that too far? That's too much.
That's too much.
Keep your head still, please.
[LAUGHS.]
Did you know that storm clouds can grow up to 20,000 feet? Which is almost 67 football fields.
[PAT.]
I did.
Well, not the not the football field bit, but - Mm-hmm.
- Big storms are cool.
[CHUCKLES.]
Hey, you know what else is cool? Remember that Arctic fox we saw at BIONA? The one with the weird sores? Not anymore.
Because they healed.
- He's still alive? - And kicking.
Or Or foxing.
Did you do something to him? I told him to get better.
But did you did you touch him, or ? I touched the glass.
I was really worried about him.
I think you healed him, buddy.
I can heal things? I don't think we have any idea what you can do yet.
[THUNDER RUMBLES.]
All right.
Oh.
Does your head hurt? I I'll be fine.
Uh, have a good day at school, all right? - What are you doing? - Fixing your headache.
- No, wait, wait.
Don't - [GRUNTS.]
Dion, stop.
Stop, stop, stop.
Let go.
- Stop! [GRUNTS.]
- [GRUNTS LOUDLY.]
- Are you okay? - Yeah.
[GRUNTS.]
I'm okay.
You're way bigger than a fox.
[GASPS.]
Sure you're okay? Maybe we should call your mom.
No, she'll get in trouble at work.
- She'll wanna know if you're sick.
- I'm fine, see? [MAKES FUNNY SOUNDS.]
[SCOFFS, CHUCKLES.]
- Well - I gotta go.
All right, but [RAIN PATTERING.]
[THUNDER RUMBLES.]
[CHILDREN LAUGHING AND CHATTERING.]
[SCHOOL BELL RINGS.]
I still don't get it.
When the warm air meets cold air, you get a storm.
Okay, well, where does the warm air come from? He's trying to explain how a storm is made so we can figure out how to stop one.
Keep going.
[INHALES.]
Okay, well, if you could cool the warm air, the storm loses power, okay? So, then, we wouldn't have so much hurricanes.
I've got it.
We can make a gun that shoots cold air into the sky.
We're gonna make a gun? In school? Right.
Uh So, not a gun.
More like a, uh, fire extinguisher, but big.
That's an awesome idea.
It is? My mom's boyfriend's a mechanic.
Maybe he can help.
It can be on a backpack, like this.
Whoa! You're a good drawer.
The Storm Killer! I like it.
[GROANS.]
[DION GROANS.]
You all right, Dion? [DION.]
Mmm, I don't feel so good.
Everyone, keep working.
I'm taking Dion to the nurse's office, but I'll be right back, okay? Come on, stand up for me.

Hello? [KNOCKS.]
Kwame? Oh, could your timing be any more perfect? I pitched your ideas to the team, they ate them up.
That's amazing, uh, but Take this to the graphic designer, walk him through your changes.
Dion's school called, he has a fever.
I have to pick him up, so maybe I can handle the poster tomorrow.
No.
They have to start the print run today, or we have to pay a rush charge.
- Well, Dion's sick, so - So find someone to pick him up.
You realize this is an opportunity, right? Those health benefits are gonna be more important in the long run than who picks him up today.

[KAT.]
Okay, Di, the worst is over.
[HEART RATE MONITOR BEEPING STEADILY.]

[KAT.]
Look at that.
I'm all done.
You did it.
- [DANIELLE.]
Kat.
- Yep.
- Can you come take a look at these? - I'll be right back, okay? These are useless.
How did that happen? I couldn't tell you.
They tried it three times and they all came out like this.
Does nothing work properly in this place? [SIGHS.]
I should get this down to the lab.
Auntie Kat.
I'll be right back, buddy.
Just rest, okay? - Look, stay.
I'll get it to the lab.
- Are you sure? - Yeah.
- Thank you.
- He should be with family.
- Thank you, honey.
My brother was a gifted farmer.
[ROOSTER CROWS.]
After his wife passed away, he looked after this whole farm all by himself for years.
Seeing the farm like this would have killed him, if he hadn't already I am so sorry for your loss.
How was it you said you knew Walter? We met in Iceland a few years ago.
The meteor shower.
I thought he was crazy.
Going all that way just to look up at the sky.
Then, after he got back, that's when his luck started to change.
His farm started thriving, prospering.
Like God was finally looking out for him.
Can you tell me what happened to him? [SIGHS.]
It looks like some kind of localized storm hit the field.
Look, I know how tornadoes work, okay? Skipping over one house and and knocking down the next, you know, like it's, uh, Duck, Duck, Goose.
But this was the only house that was even touched in the whole county.
It took my brother.
Disappeared.
[BRAYDEN.]
It was a man.
Made of lightning.
[WOMAN.]
Brayden, that's enough.
Brayden, did you see the man in the storm? [WOMAN.]
I said that's enough.
Upstairs.
Now.
Upstairs.
Go on.
Look, I loved my brother, but he was imbued with the spirit of the devil, and he exposed Brayden to that same darkness.
He was claimed because of it.
That's my belief.
[BRAYDEN, IN CHARLOTTE'S MIND.]
She's wrong.
That's not what happened.
[CHARLOTTE.]
Brayden? Is that you? [BRAYDEN.]
Meet me outside in the garden.
Are you all right? [MAN OVER PA.]
Dr.
Wallace to CCU.
Dr.
Wallace to CCU.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Is he okay? - Uh, I I think so.
I haven't been here long.
Maybe half an hour.
I tried to see him, but they wouldn't let me in 'cause I'm not family, so Okay.
Is Kat here? Yeah, she's been in there with him the whole time.
I don't think he's done anything "super.
" - Oh! Okay.
- Yeah.
Yeah.
- Thank you so much for being here.
- Of course, yeah.
They're right down the hall, so we Um - Just down the hall? - Yeah.
- Okay, I'm gonna talk to Kat.
- Oh.
Okay.
- Yeah, just Thank you.
- Yeah, of course.
[NICOLE SIGHS.]
Oh.
Hey.
Hey, sweetie, I'm here.
Am I underwater? [NICOLE.]
No, baby.
Oh, you look so tired.
Do you Do you wanna take a nap? Wake me up for school tomorrow.
[NICOLE.]
W we'll see.
[GROANS SOFTLY.]
[GROANING SOFTLY.]
His fever is a little strange, but he seems to be stabilizing.
[GROANS SOFTLY.]
I told you to take him home.
What happened to "Thanks for saving my son's life, Kat"? It's not safe here for all these people.
Not safe? What could happen, Nic? Tell me exactly what would happen if you weren't here to protect the rest of us from your sleeping child.
He could hurt someone, with [EXHALES.]
Are you still talking this superpower nonsense? Get over here.
I've been trying to let this thing slide, hoping it's not a symptom of a bigger issue, but you just can't seem to let this go.
Because it's real.
- [SIGHS.]
I've been trying to tell you.
- Stop telling me and show me.
[WHISPERS.]
Sweetie.
Mom? Hey, come on.
Can we sit up? Oh, I'm sorry.
Sit up, up, up, up.
Time for school? I want you to show Auntie Kat what you can do.
Can you show her your powers? You said the black van could take me away.
- You told him that? - This is a special case.
Okay? She needs to see what you can do so she can help you get better.
Okay? Maybe just lift something.
[SIGHS.]
My head doesn't feel good.
I need you to try, though.
Okay? [SIGHS.]
Are we done with this Munchausen-by-proxy bit? - It's not a good look.
- No, he can usually do it without even having to think about it.
Something must be really wrong.
Something is really wrong, with the both of you, but at least I can fix his situation.
[FOOTSTEPS DEPART.]
- [DOOR OPENS.]
- [INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYS.]
How is he? [HEART RATE MONITOR BEEPING STEADILY.]
Well, Kat says he's stabilizing, but he's delirious and his fever won't go down.
[PAT INHALES DEEPLY.]
Well [EXHALES.]
she's not gonna let anything happen to him, so She doesn't even know what she's dealing with.
What if his powers are making him sick? What if it's some superhero disease? It's not like they teach superhero immunology at med school.
[PAT INHALES.]
I think I might have had something to do with it.
You? How? Well, this morning I told him that he healed the fox at BIONA, and I guess he thought he could heal my migraines, too.
- Um - What? I I stopped him before it went too far, but I think it might have made him sick.
I I feel so awful.
I'm I'm sorry.
But the The fox.
When he healed the fox, it didn't make him sick.
I mean, I'm a lot bigger than a fox.
So then, if this is some kind of superhero illness, maybe there's a way to reverse it, right? I mean, w-what do they tell you in the comic books and - Maybe? I I, uh, um - You're supposed to know this stuff.
Well, you know that comic books aren't real, right? I mean You said Mark was studying himself, right? Because I could take that data card to BIONA and decrypt the data and see if there's anything there.
What about Suzanne? Isn't she tracking the servers at BIONA? I mean, we could wait, but a doctor could eventually find something abnormal, and at least this way we're ahead of them.
If I had anything to do with causing this mess let me try to fix it.
Please.
[DION GROANS SOFTLY.]
Okay.
Gosh.
Okay.
I will guard this with my life.
Okay.

Not when I need you to.
[CHUCKLES.]
[DOOR OPENS.]
Hey.
His temperature is up to 106.
We're still trying to diagnose him.
Danielle is running his blood work, and the results should be in soon.
You You drew blood? Yes, it's standard procedure.
No.
No, no, no, no, no.
You You can't You can't draw blood.
You have to get it back from Danielle.
- She already submitted the samples.
- Well, then, get it back! I didn't I didn't give permission for you to take his blood.
Are you kidding? We have to do whatever we can to help him get better.
You're not gonna make him better.
You're gonna put him at risk.
Of what? Of the vans you told him were gonna come take him away? You have lost your damn Dion? What the hell? Oh, my God, no.
What the hell? What the hell? What the hell? [KAT SIGHS.]
- It's okay.
- He floats, Nic.
What the hell? [KAT SIGHS.]
[WHISPERS.]
There's no There's There's no prescription, no diagnosis.
A thousand years of medical science, and the boy floats? It's freaky.
Yeah, I know.
Just, uh take a second.
Oh, my God, and I didn't believe you.
[NICOLE.]
Aww.
[KAT SNIFFS.]
[NICOLE SCOFFS.]
There is so much that I have to tell you.
I'm I'm sorry, Niki.
It's okay.
It's not okay, because you've been dealing with this alone.
[KAT SIGHS.]
And to think I thought about putting you on a 72-hour psychiatric hold.
- You were gonna do what? - I mean, I didn't do it.
[KAT SIGHS.]
[STAMMERS.]
Do you see now why I'm scared to have him here in the hospital? [GROANS.]
Okay.
Okay.
Let's think about this.
Okay, um Who else knows? Pat, uh And this woman, Charlotte.
She has abilities, too.
There are more people like this? I mean, I don't know how many.
They like to keep under the radar.
Oh, God.
I gotta delete Dion's medical records.
Wait, think about that.
Let's talk about it because - if you get caught, you could get fired.
- And if I don't delete them? I don't wanna think about what could happen.
You stay with Di.
I'll let you know when it's done.

[DION.]
Hi.
Are you okay? You went to the nurse's office and never came back.
[DION SIGHS.]
I don't feel so good, and my fever's like 200 degrees, and I keep thinking I'm gonna puke, but I never puke.
Where are you? The hospital.
Why do you sound so weird? [DION, HALTINGLY.]
Jonathan? Yeah, we're working on the Storm Killer.
I was talking toEsperanza.
Me and Me [DISTORTED.]
You should go back to sleep.
Yeah, you sleep, while we win the science prize with our amazing gun.

[HALTINGLY.]
She's my BFF [ESPERANZA.]
Dion? - [JONATHAN.]
Wait, I gotta record this.
- [ESPERANZA.]
No.
No, don't turn it off.
His fever is high enough to attract attention.
We should extract him.
We need an opening.
I don't think we have time for an opening.
Patience.
[DOOR BEEPS OPEN.]
[KEYBOARD CLACKING.]
Jesus, Mark.
How long you been able to read minds? [BRAYDEN.]
Always.
But I really wanted to do what my dad did.
Make things grow really fast.
He grew that forest out front to hide the house.
Took ten minutes.
That's what happened to the house? The vines? Did he do that? He tried to keep me away from that storm.
He tried to fight it? He tried, but he couldn't stop it.
Probably nothing can.
Are you sure about what you saw? The people made of rain.
The Lightning Man.
That storm came to get my dad.
Or me.
I am really glad that it didn't get you.
[SIGHS.]
I'd rather be with him.
I hate this place without my dad.
[EXHALES.]
I should go.
Me too.
- [CHARLOTTE.]
What? - Take me with you.
No, no, I can't.
- You have to.
- I I can't.
See, I alr I can't.
Who's Dion? You keep thinking about someone named Dion.
Is that why you don't want to take me with you? Did Dion tell you to leave me here? [WOMAN.]
Brayden.
Supper's ready.
I'll check on you, I promise.
[BRAYDEN.]
You're lying! You're not coming back! - No, no, no, no.
Stop it, Brayden.
- You're going to Dion.
[CHARLOTTE.]
I can't.
Why are you helping Dion but you won't help me? Don't leave me here.
Come back! [BIRDS CAWING.]
[KEYBOARD CLACKING.]
I've been looking for you.
Dion's blood work will be done any minute.
Kat? [KAT.]
Yeah.
What's going on? What are you doing? Who gave you permission to delete these files? - Just Just give me a sec.
- What the hell are you doing? I know how this looks, but I'm just asking that you trust that I'm doing the right thing.
Trust you? You're deleting your nephew's medical records, and it sounds like you're asking me to ignore that fact.
Do you think I would do this if it wasn't important? It's for Nicole and Dion.
Why does your sister need you to breach protocol? I'm protecting my family.
I thought we were gonna be family.
I'm asking you to keep a secret, like how you asked me to keep our relationship a secret.
Because no one should attribute your success to me.
You're a gifted doctor.
Why are you risking your career over this? For the last time, please tell me what's going on.
[KAT SIGHS.]
I'm taking you off this case.
I'll tell the board about us and take the consequences.
You should be prepared for the same.

His temperature is 107.
Y-You need to do something.
His iodine level is one and a half times what it should be.
- Well, what does that mean? - That means I know how to help.
But we have to move fast.
Danielle caught me deleting Dion's medical records.
- [MONITOR BEEPING.]
- [DION GROANING.]
- Wait, what's happening to him? Di? Di? - Look, calm down.
Go there, put more ice packs on him.
- It's not doing anything.
He's burning up.
- It is doing something.
It's going to lower his temperature.
- You said he was stabilizing, Kat.
- Calm down.
[WOMAN.]
Security should be here in a moment.
[DANIELLE.]
Thank you.
Can you check on the vitals of a patient for me? Room 430? Of course.
This can't be right.
The patient's temperature is 115.
Is it a hemorrhagic fever? [DANIELLE SIGHS.]
I don't know what it is.
- Uh - [DIALING.]
I got it.
I - Oh, no, she knows.
- Hey, Pat.
- She knows, she knows.
- Oh.
So, okay, so, um, Mark ran a bunch of tests on himself.
Blood work, physicals, genome tests, MRis, you name it.
- What is that there? - [KAT.]
This is to lower his iodine.
[PAT.]
Lower? No, no, no, no, that'll kill him.
Um, the aurora event changed Mark's body chemistry.
He actually had twice the normal iodine levels.
So Dion needs more iodine, not less.
- [KAT.]
I I can I can work with this.
- [PAT.]
Okay.
Okay.
[KAT.]
Iodine's going in.
