Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode opened with Hobb (Danny Webb) trying to talk to Fred (Sope Dirisu) and revealing that five of them were created by Dr. David Elster. He gave them capabilities than more than a synth could feel or think of. However, Fred opted to shut down to hide his thoughts from him.
Meanwhile, Anita (Gemma Chan) saved Toby Hawkins (Theo Stevenson) from getting hit by a truck. He frantically went after his mother to try to stop her from bringing Anita back to the mall. Joe Hawkins (Tom Goodman-Hill) then brought Anita home and had to check the epidermis of her body. It was before she repaired herself so that she could send a more accurate report back regarding her damage.
Leo (Colin Morgan), who was still injured, and worried, and Max (Jeremiah Ivanno) decided to lay low in an abandoned house. He put up a search that would alert them if the root code of the synth named Mia, now Anita, ever popped up. They then discovered that a crime had occurred at the place where Niska (Emily Berrington) used to work. However, Niska was nowhere to be found near the scene of the crime, as she had gone to the mall, bought new clothes, and put on contacts to look more human.
At the crime scene, Hobb hung around as he was interested in the synth. Detective Sergeant Peter Drummond (Neil Maskell) got suspended after getting annoyed at the Chief who wanted to rule the entire thing as an accident.
Afterwards, Niska did meet up with Leo and Max but decided to go off on her own. She felt that Leo, who was almost like them, was keeping them prisoner. She then met a nice man at a bar, and went home with him with the intention of stabbing him in the back,, She decided against it after discovering that he was a single parent with a young daughter.
Meanwhile, Dr. George Millican (William Hurt) locked his new synth, Vera (Rebecca Font) up so that he and Odi (Will Tudor) could drive to the woods. There, Odi tried to go out of the car while it was running, causing the car to go off the road, and got George hurt. George then was rescued by two bikers after telling Odi to go and hide in the woods so that he wouldn’t be recycled. Back at home, George felt bad for Odi, who was now alone in the woods, and looking for him.
Meanwhile, at the Hawkins home, Anita decided to let Laura Hawkins (Katherine Parkinson) tuck little Sophie (Pixie Davis) in bed to cheer her up. Afterwards, Laura saw that Anita had cooked the pie that she had been trying to bake for Sophie and thanked Anita.
Later that night, Matilda “Mattie” (Lucy Carless) tried to access Anita’s root program. It caused her for a moment to grab her hand and asked for help.
The next morning, Laura tried to figure out if anyone illegally modified Anita but discovered nothing wrong. Anita then asked Laura about a boy named Tom, whom she had seen in a photo album that Laura had hidden in her closet. Laura then warned her never to repeat Tom’s name again.
Meanwhile, Mattie uploaded Anita’s root code to a forum on a site. It triggered the alert that Leo had set up, which told him that his Mia was indeed in London.
