Later the town of Thirston [[spoiler: is poisoned]] by a mysterious man [[spoiler: acting as]] Sanitation Engineer working on the water tower. A cop later says that the man is [[spoiler: a Colonel]], showing that there may be a connection between the missing [[spoiler: bacteria]] and the [[spoiler: fake]] Sanitation Engineer.
