Athena-1, come in.

Athena-1, this is Control. We have

negative copy on that last transmission.

We are showing LOS in the command module.

Please verify. Over.

Mission Control,

this is Atkins.

Something went wrong

with the test.

The crew is dead.

Athena hull integrity

is critical.

I'm headed

to the escape capsule.

Negative, negative.

Reroute to the lab and

secure the canisters

before departure.

But the test subject is loose.

Doctor, the test subject

is a rat.

Not anymore.

What is this?

You have your orders, Doctor.

Open the goddamn door!

Dr. Atkins, it's Claire Wyden.

We'll unlock the escape capsule

when you secure the samples.

Doctor, either you come home

with my research,

or you don't come home at all.

Entering the lab.


Mission Control, securing

the samples now.

Copy that.


hull integrity critical.

Oh, God.

Open it!

Capsule unlocked.

Mmm. I love that smell.

Brings me right back to


You've been to Uganda?

Yeah. Oh, yeah.

If the jungle doesn't kill

you, the poachers will.

The cops are still after me

from all that sh*t I pulled.

They call me El Diablo.

I know they don't speak Spanish,

but they might as well.


- You ever see Blood Diamond?

- Yeah.

Now, I know it's about diamonds,

but it really captures the vibe.

I don't know if it's the same region.

But, you know, it's intense.

Don't mess with

Mother Africa...

Everything okay, boss?

No, it's not.

Don't move a muscle.

Junior here is dropping

a lot of monkey sh*t

with these made-up stories.

It's very entertaining, though.

It's very entertaining.

I've been to Uganda, man.

And I've been to Hogwarts.

Regardless, if you had any

experience with poaching,

you would know that it's extremely rude

to talk about it in front of a lady.

Oh, it's okay.

I can handle it.

Oh, I know you can. I'm

talking about these ladies.

There shouldn't be any


but remember you're not

in the classroom anymore.

These are wild animals.

They're very unpredictable.

So remember your training,

and do exactly as I say.

Tell me, what do you see?

The, uh, the young male,

is attempting to establish his

presence with the female.

He's posturing, agitated.

Sounds like someone we know,


Okay, let's remember this is Paavo's

first interaction with the troop.

So we'll just take it

nice and easy,

and we'll see how well he

responds to my commands.



Paavo. Paavo, it's okay.

Femi, Enu, on station.

Good girls.


That's far enough, Paavo.

It's okay.

Calm. Calm.

It's me.


There you go.

- It's cool, right?

- Yeah.

Good boy.

Good boy.

Good boy.

Uh... Davis.

Everyone stay where you are.

No one move.

Are you crazy?

If you move, we're gonna be in big trouble.

Connor, do not move.

Connor, do what he says.


Connor, don't move!


No! Paavo! Sh*t!

Help! Help!

Connor! Connor!

It's okay.

George! George!



Easy, buddy. Easy.

Okay. Okay.

Oh, very funny. Very funny.

We're all very impressed.

Yes, yes.

You and I, laughing at your

joke, okay?

New guy, he no laugh.

He cry.

Yeah. Yeah, opposite of laugh.

- Connor, you can get up now.

- Are you 100% on that?

100% sure. You can get up.

And check your diaper.

Come on, let's go.

He cry.

It's okay, it's okay.

He's not gonna kill me?

No, he's not gonna kill you. He

has a unique sense of humor. I...

Uh, no, no.

George no save Davis.

I don't need your saving. No.

George no save Davis.

You didn't save me.

I was fine on my own.

I'm fine.

Stop doing that. Listen, it's important
