Riley discovers the voice from her childhood belongs to Yrsa, who is sensate like her. Yrsa explains her actions by saying Riley was not safe in Iceland, as BPO have a facility there. She also says she will go into hiding, as BPO have the technology to trace connected sensates and they will find her if Riley gets captured. Will is visited by Jonas, who is being held prisoner by BPO. Will visits Riley, while she continues to visit Yrsa. Jonas and Yrsa reveal that all members of a cluster are born at the same time, taking their first breath as one. Yrsa becomes agitated when she finds out that Jonas is present. She tells Riley that Jonas and Angelica were collaborators who used to help Whispers hunt sensates. Wolfgang's uncle visits the hospital to warn him not to seek revenge on Steiner. Sun's father comes to visit her in the prison and reveals he will confess the truth. Nomi and Lito share intimate stories of their past. Riley visits the graves of her husband and infant daughter. Capheus visits her and tells her of his infant sister they gave up for adoption. Lito struggles with the loss of Hernando.
