The breach in The Feed is spreading and Gil (Chris Reilly) is brought in for questioning by the hub, arrested briefly by the ISCA. Another 30 potential hackers are brought in. Ben has set up Gil for good.
Evelyn and Max are hostages after a mysterious man entered their home in the last episode. Before intending to leave the country for good, Kate goes to visit Max and Evelyn, and senses danger after seeing blood. Tom shows up and suspects it is linked to The Feed.
These two just do not know how to leave the country.
Gil is questioned, but he is adamant that he did not download the illegal app. Ben tries convincing Meredith that Gil is guilty, but she believes him, irritating Ben further.
Ben then decides to visit his father Lawrence, but Lawrence is only interested in turning on Ben’s feed. Lawrence finds out about the illegal app that won’t go away in Ben’s feed. The two end up arguing and Lawrence says, “you are not my son, you’ve done nothing to earn my name”.
Ouch, and he said it in such a way that Ben may have not understood the double meaning. Meanwhile, Tom and Kate continue to look for Max and Evelyn.
To turn the tables, Lawrences invites a journalist into his home. He claims to be smarter than most people, stating that his brain works faster and is more expansive than most and he is part of an exclusive group of two hundred people. Lawrence further claims he is saving the world like the geniuses before him and asks if he can be reinstated so they all can be saved. While Lawrence delivers his public speech with the journalist, Tom and Kate find a severed head in a wardrobe in an employee’s house.
We soon learn that the man who has captured Evelyn and Max is a man named Eric, and he heads to the hub with them.
Lawrence is called in by Sue and after a brief conversation, she orders his arrest by security personnel — she refuses to reinstate him. Eric sneaks into the hub with Max and Evelyn and just as Tom and Kate show up during Lawrence’s arrest, Eric tries attacking them. Tom accidentally kills him. It is revealed that Eric killed his wife, and her head was in the wardrobe.
The Feed Season 1, Episode 6 ends with Ben analyzing a feed of one of the hackers but it is absorbing all the data — corruption flashes up on the screen. Max suddenly stabs Lawrence from behind multiple times, killing him. Max is shot dead.
