Evelyn shows that Kate’s feed is clear but there is evidence that someone was in her head while she was sleeping. That person was Lawrence. Kate asks for a hard copy of everything Lawrence has done, But Evelyn is hesitant to do so.
Lawrence and Meredith report on the incident and the resistors in a briefing. They claim they want to identify those responsible and seek approval to use the public for help.

At the midway point of Episode 2, Kate gets all the information about Lawrence’s invasion from a person Max knows. Tom speaks to Anton and asks if he knows Sarah, but Anton walks away. It’s clear that they knew each other. Meredith tries to speak to Kate to talk and try and calm down the situation with Lawrence, but she refuses, and pieces all the data together. She believes Lawrence’s privacy invasion is to do with her baby.
Ben is worried that the hacking has come from within, so he interrogates Evelyn and indirectly accuses her, stating that Max could be a resister. Ben shows footage of Max in a neighborhood all afternoon and wonders what he was up to. Lawrence stops the investigation and in a conversation with Evelyn, it is revealed that Evelyn decoded Kate’s feed. Meanwhile, Kate reckons Lawrence did something to her baby.
In a bad move, Anton and Sarah are put in the same room with each other. Tom panics and runs downstairs to stop them from looking at each other, but it is too late — Anton kills Sarah and then kills himself, leaving a bloody mess on Tom’s clothes. Tom speaks to his parents about Sarah and Anton who give nothing away.
As Tom returns home, she meddles with her feed’s settings. She manages to get deeper into her settings and sees her child’s name. When Tom enters the room, she reveals that Lawrence put a feed in their baby. Meanwhile, Meredith and Lawrence argue about the future of the feed. Their marriage is clearly strained.
