Allison's father is injured in a bomb fire and she returns home to confront her past only to find her father in a state of dimensia along with an ever-increasing number of her home village. Throughout most of the story, the episode appears to be a mix of an outbreak story along with yet more personal insight on Allison.
Allison's a bit raw in this story and is at times hard to like as she seems contemptuous of everyone in her old home town, but her behavior does have a reason and it does help with her character development. Sir Toby remains interesting. His reason for sending Allison shows real concern for her and a desire to help her avoid his mistakes, but the ending of the episode leads to this being misconstrued. Rachel does continue to be a bit off and some of her behavior, particularly resisting quarantine procedures she requested, are very odd for a scientist.
The plot works fairly well throughout most of the story but dials up the tension with the big reveals in the last fifteen minutes as the ending leaves Counter Measures in a very difficult state. This sets up great momentum for the box set finale.
