Kelly is awake in bed as Dirk sleeps next to her. She gets a call on her TAP which immediately answers. A strange man saying that he needs her help asks Kelly to take an extraction device and shove it into the back of Dirk’s head removing data from his Data Courier (head storage).

She stalls and is interrupted by a Ravenlocke sysop saying he detected a break in to her TAP. The hacker and the sysop keep overwriting each other trying to talk to Kelly. She goes to get the security guard and is surprised to find Lesko but remembers him from his time with Ravenlock.

The hacker then tells her that they have helped other dolls become free of the corporation. She takes the extractor and shoves it into the back of Dirk’s head. Dirk starts gagging and Lesko tries to pull it out but snaps his neck. The sysop takes complete control and lets Kelly know there are two Ravenlock security on there way. Lesko and Kelly sneak out of the hotel and drive off.


Cam is able to track Alina to a rave and follows her bodyguard to a back room. She distracts the bodyguard and tries to capture Alina but is pushed into a lose wire and shocked.

Cam recovering from being shot takes out the two muslim guards who were protecting her. She takes a shot at Alina as the back door open and Fatima grabs her but Cam also shoots her. The two manage to jam the door shot and Cam decides to track down Alina later and recover at Dr. Fran├žois Chau, a doctor who also works the underground.


Lesko and Thibout get in contact and meetup. Lesko knows he needs a quick place to lay low and call on Cam who owes him big for letting her live in a room above his bar. Cam tells him that Chau’s place is safe and they head out to an abandoned warhouse near a porte on the Seine.

As everyone heads in a Chau’s drone picks up Alina and Cam won’t let her in. She heads out and tells her she is wanted by law and she will bring her in. Alina begs to at least allow her to look at the data from the data courier. Cam agrees but Alina pays 1000 now and 2000 later.

Fatima explains to Kelly, Lesko and Tibout that Dirk Metzner was tasked with coming with security for BMW which would lead the way for the rest of Germany. He originally wrote a powerful treatise on using the unemployed but BMW disagreed and deleted the treatise from all channels. It is beleived he had an encrypted copy on his data courier.

Lesko and Thibout start receiving calls form Ravenlocke but ignore them. Kelly gets a call from Remy who tries to talk her into turning herself in by she finally refuses and hangs up.

Alina tries to decrypt the data but is damaged and she tells them there is someone in Germany who can possibly decrypt it. However, BMW and Ravenlocke will have sniffers looking for evidence of the data so it is best to transport it by hand. Kelly, Lesko, Thibout and Cam agree to go.

On the news a Det Connie Si Yan is being interviewed about her investigation on the murder of Dirk Metzner. She says that the man fleeing with Kelly Amoureaux is believed to be Lesko Perkins, a former Ravenlocke employee.

Cam looks and Connie’s image and suddenly has vivid memories of being burnt in the same place she was.
