After losing her poisoning, Jane is now heading towards the final stages of he ZIP poisoning. She has been laying in a hospital bed since then, wondering how long she has left with Kurt.

While Kurt tends to his sick wife, it’s up to Patterson (Ashley Johnson) and Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) to find a cure. Their investigation leads to a billionaire hypochondriac with stem cells. The billionaire wants the Book of Secrets in return for the stem cells that will save Jane.
