While replying to the email that her father sent in the last episode, Chloe senses something is wrong and climbs to the roof to check it out. She spots a shadowy figure and chases him through rooftops only to realize that it was Alek who was actually standing guard outside her room and he wanted to make a point to her. She needed to be more careful with her remaining 8 lives. Both of her friends are incredibly cool with Chloe’s newfound powers and inhuman nature. They think she’s a super-hero while she thinks she’s some sort of super-freak.
Chloe is still feeling guilty over Xavier’s death, even though she seems to be coping with it quite well with Brian. She is blaming herself for his death, but it seems that its scar-face who killed him on the orders of Brian’s father. While Brian and his father seemed very close in the last episode, we get to know in this episode that they really aren’t that close. Chloe goes to Xavier’s funeral and learns that his parents blame his drug addict brother, Gabriel for his death. Chloe contacts Gabriel and discovers that he is no longer an addict, but is working for drug dealers who will not let him out of their grasp. Chloe advises him to follow his brother’s guidance, upon which he sets a trap for the drug dealers. Chloe goes head-on to save him from them since there’s no way they would let him go alive. Alek tries to stop her, but she doesn’t listen. So, he disapprovingly joins her and fights the dealers. With Amy and Paul’s help, they manage to contain the situation.
Later Alek warns Chloe that if she continues seeing Brain “One of them will get hurt” and offers to answer any questions she has about the Mai. Chloe decides to take her mom’s advice about taking risks in life and is talking to Brian on the phone and hears a noise on her roof dismissing it as Alek, while it’s the assassin waiting for Chloe at her weakest point.
Last episode may have shown the jock, obnoxious side of Alek, but in this episode he comes off as someone who cares about Chloe. Well, caring may be pushing it a bit, but he definitely is obsessed with her. Maybe it’s because of the proximity of a female Mai, a girl whom he can actually go out with without worrying he may paralyze her. Brian seems to be a good guy and all, but I am actually rooting for Alek and Chloe, which means the show is definitely doing its job by being fun and addictive.
