Welcome, Dr. Hau.

Yes, Hazel, this is Dr. Hau.

This is the physician
who will be overseeing

Herbert's treatment.

- Pleasure to meet you, Hazel.

- Please, sit down.

- [sighs, chuckles]

- So how do you plan
on treating my dad's cancer

without him knowing?
- Well, that's--

that is the magic of the Hub,

- I was asking the doctor.

- Of course, yeah.

- Well, we've designed
a process for your father

that makes it seamless.

The painkillers Herbert takes
every morning

have been replaced
with fast-acting sedatives.

- Oh, jeez, it's 9:30 already.

All right, enough sitting
around the breakfast table.

Let's go sit on the couch.

- When Herbert wakes up,
he'll simply think

he drifted off for a moment.

- And I, um--

I got you a gift.

I took your high school watch
from your bedroom

and I retrofitted it.

It's synced to all the clocks
in the ranch,

so if you ever need to know
what time Herbert thinks it is,

it's right there.

And if you wanna know
the real time, you just...

[watch beeps]

- How do we explain
the side effects to him?

Because with my mom's chemo,
there was a--

- Chemo? No, that's--
that's medieval times.

Like, you might as well put
a jar of leeches on him.

The Hub isn't hindered
by the FDA or ethics boards.

- We're decades ahead--

gene editing, cell therapy,
molecular vaccines

in combination
with nanosurgery.

In fact, the only side effect
your father might experience

would be from the sedatives--

some mild grogginess.

- Which is barely anything.

- So you just happen to be
working on a cure for cancer?

- Hmm.
- Um...

by-product of research,
I guess.

You know, we--did you know
that cancer cells

on a cellular level
actually become immortal?

- So how long?

- Treatment duration
can be based

on a number of factors.

- You know he's using
my father's life

to hold me hostage, right?

So I just wanna know
how long

I have to keep up
this charade for.

- 12 weeks.

- That's the initial estimate
to remission.

- 12 weeks.
I can do 12 weeks.

The second he is better,
we're leaving.

[tense music]

My dad's cancer
is the only reason

that I am here.

- I know.

Can you give me 12 weeks
to try and fix this?

- Well, I'll leave you two--

- I have a question, actually,

When can I get
this fucking chip

taken out of my head?

- Uh--
- Hmm?

- Well, technically,
I could take it out now.

- Yeah, that's a great idea,

That--we'll have
both of ours taken out.

- You have a chip?

- Yeah.

In a moment of vulnerability,

I had Bennett help me
put one in.

But I never activated it,

because deep down, I knew
that's what you wouldn't want.

Why's this water taste, uh,




Hmm. So...


It's like mountain air.

- All right, listen up,

'Cause I'm about to blow
your fucking minds.

Three world-renowned

Three not-so-renowned
worker bees

from Gogol plants
around the country.

All these people died
this year.

Sudden accidental deaths
in the prime of their lives.

Terrible tragedies?

Or Gogol's sick
recruitment requirements?

We believe these people
are alive

and working in the Hub.

And now we're about
to find out.

With this guy.

- Uh, hold on. Lights on.

- Oh, come on.
What's the problem, baby?

- The problem, baby, is that
the Twin Sands mission failed.

And I think Hazel
went back to the Hub.

- Yeah, so do we.
And guess what.

We've got you cleared
for an undercover interview

with the Hub.

This could be the biggest case

of our lifetime.

If you find those people,

we've got Gogol
on insurance fraud,

labor conspiracy,
false imprisonment.

Who knows what else?

That sick fuck could be
breeding centaurs.

[laughs] Fucking centaurs.
- Mm-hmm.

- And the timing
couldn't be better, 'cause--

lights off.

[dramatic music]

You've got Hazel Gogol
teed up

and ready to become
an informant.

- Lights on.

I spent two days with her.

I didn't lay down
the proper groundwork.

I wanna get Gogol
just as bad as you do,

but I think our next move--
- Lights off.

You wanna talk moves?

Because I'll tell you
what I see.

It looks like
she's begging for it.

And you there, cool guy?

Look how cool you look.

I've never looked
that fucking cool ever.

I wish you'd just acknowledge
you got a gift, my friend.

- Yeah, homie, everybody wants
to sleep with you.

Hell, I wouldn't
kick you out of bed.

- You smell like cinnamon.

- Lights on!

[dramatic chord]

- [whispering]
I don't know what to do.

- Just turn
the fucking lights on.

- Nobody knows
where the Hub is.

Okay? There'll be
no way to reach me.

We don't know how to get in.
We do not know how to get out.

I don't know what the plan
of extraction is here.

[sighs] Fuck it.

I've done worse. Let's do it.

- Team player.
- There he is.

Oh, by the way, your new name?

I came up with that.

- Okay, I need you both

All done.

- That's it?

After everything
I went through?

- Mm-hmm.

- It's just out of my head
like that?

- Just like that.

They're gonna be destroyed,

They'll be incinerated.

- You--you okay there?

- [coughing]


- Good.

- Well.

I think we're done here.

- Oh, you need an access sensor
in your fingertip.

Dr. Hau, do you mind
putting one in Hazel?

- [laughs]

Yeah, right.

You must think
I am really fucking stupid.

I am not letting you
put another chip in my body.

- You mean besides the two
you just swallowed?

The finger sensor
is truly the only method

of getting around in the Hub,

- I might have a work-around.

[clears throat]

came to see me in LA

to beg for his job back.

I said no,

but he gave me
his middle finger

as a parting gift.

- How did you know Hazel
would destroy the chips?

- Oh, I know my Hazel.

A lot better
than she'd like to admit.

Were the transfer plates
able to copy the chips' data?

- Yes.
- Great.

- The data mapped onto
its hard drive upon contact.


A copy of Hazel's consciousness
is uploading

to a dedicated network now.

- Excellent. And my copy?

- I'll upload it
to its own network.

- Keep them together.

You know, it's more
romantic that way.

- Come on.

Truck's dead.

It's crazy.
Nothing looks off on it.

Not to be crass, but I know
the inside of its body

as well as I know yours.

new spark plugs in it too.

- Unfortunately, Amos is
unavailable at the moment.

Can I help you?

- Yeah, yeah, I got
a problem with my truck.

- Oh, trucks.
It's always something.

- Yeah, I think it may be
the timing belt.

Can't think of what else
it could be, so...

- Yes, the timing belt.

The timing belt...

which links the camshaft...
to the crankshaft,

which manages the pistons
of the engine.

- Yeah, right, right, okay.

Can you get somebody out here
right away, please?

Herb Green. Amos knows me.

- Oh, we're pretty booked
at the moment.

There might be
an opening next week.

- Next week? No. What are you--
are you kidding me?

Are you new?

I didn't know Amos
had any women there.
