[[In an office on Earth, three workers spasm in pain, while two look curiously. One of those who are spasming has a cellphone.]]
Colonel Lionel Barker: [inset] "What's happening? What have you done?"

[[In the UGA offices, we see Agent #12 (Maddie O'Hara), Agent #18 (Blawgus), and Agent #7560 all with Physarics leaving their bodies. Agent #18 in particular has grasped the one that had infested him, and looks to be ready to fling it to the ground.]]

[[Agent #18 has a fire extinguisher trained on a Physaric, with Agent #12 glaring behind her.]]
