To his surprise, she seems every bit as baffled and sceptical as him, and readily offers to help investigate the case. Unfortunately, just as an explanation seems within reach, she is found dead, having apparently committed suicide.

They soon discover that not only must they try to find and stop Gepetto, but they must also locate a young pregnant girl who is carrying one of the cloned fetuses, and whose life is in danger from a complication with the pregnancy.
