It’s a relaxing weekend for David. His dad is actually home, for once, and they all have dinner together. He and Sarah Nelson spend an afternoon together, and it’s almost like having real friends. Unfortunately, Monday means school. He goes, and waits it out. He’s got some issues to work out at the construction site tonight.
"So what's the plan? How are we moving forward?"
"The hard part is figuring out who's infested. We'll need some good morphs for recon."
"We should all acquire each other first. To give us good alibis."
"I don't think I want to pass around my genome that casually. It might turn out to be useful for something."
"Any of you can go ahead and acquire me, as long as you'll give me the same deal when I get the morphing power."
"Yeah, I'm not doing that."
"We will need human morphs. Why not each other?"
Sarah leans into David shoulder, uncomfortable with the idea of them having his morph too... but.
"We can't afford to be squeemish about this. We need every advantage we can get."
Khloe sits next to Sarah and touches her.
She shudders and opens her eyes.
"Please give me a little warning next time."
"Only need to do it the one time, love."
Matt touches David's arm.
"Acquiring in morph doesn't work," he announces moments later.
"To reiterate, before anyone gets any ideas, I'm not getting acquired. If you don't want me to acquire you, whatever, fair. Nobody's turning into me."
Kasper holds out his hand to Stiles in response.
"Matt and I will just acquire David later. We still have some time before he need to morph back."
Kasper acquires David, then Sarah and vice versa. He sits again and lies out a piece of paper on the table.
"This is a list of all the Controllers that we have observed. Some of them are dead or missing."
Stiles reads the list.
Stiles excuses himself from the room.
"I don't know if I'm the best person to comfort him, Callie, I don't do comfort."
Sarah continues to draw comfort from David anyway and looks at the list.
"Allison's mom? Ah. That does make more sense than my teleportation theory... does that make Allison a Controller too?"
"Did he not already know that his father was a Controller?"
"Confirmation is a bitch, Kas."
"I don't do comfort."
"You...might be unusually effective, just by going to him. We'll take care of the rest tonight, after we finish up here."
