For the gods keep the secrets of life

hidden from humans.

Men did, however, figure out one secret.

How to use fire.

And Zeus punished them

with the worst thing he could think of.

Something so terrible,

the writer Hesiod called it the source

of all mortal suffering.

Any guess what punishment

he came up with?

Some kind of disease?


- War?

- Nope.

Fire? Floods? Drought?

None of those.

For their punishment, Zeus gave them...


- Hello? Uncle Tom?

Back here, in my office.


- So, what's today's experiment?

- Biosynthesis.

There are extinct

plant cell walls in this fossil.

Crinoids, a type of echinoderm.

The mature crinoids artificially

resemble flowers.

Hence the name.

Sea Lily.

Very good.

You know, theoretically,

I could use the molecular genetic material

to create a whole new breed of crinoid.

Isn't that a little unnatural?


But interesting, right?

You seem distracted.

Is everything all right?

It's Oxford,

they called me again this morning.

But I can't go to England

and leave you here.

You're the only family I've got.

I'll see you later. I have another class.

Hey, Uncle Tom.

What are you cooking?

A fabulous red wine sauce.

I hope you're hungry.

Tempting, but I have a date.

He should already be here.

As far as going to England is concerned,

you're too talented for this little town.

- Oh, but I thought we already

settled that. - Mmm-hmm.

But what if I came with you?


You're bright. You deserve it.

And anyway, I'm getting a little homesick.

It'll do us both good.

I don't know what to say.

In cases like that,

it's better to say nothing.

A toast.

To your future.

And to Oxford.

Oh, that must be him.

Don't wait up.

- And thank you.

- Get out of here, have fun.


Jesus Christ.


Hey, Miranda, come on,

we're gonna be late.

Miranda, come on, you...

What have we got?

Female. No ID or any clothing.

Some kind of skin rash.

Some jogger found her

passed out naked in the park.

Uncle Tom?

I hope you're hungry.

Tempting, but I have a date.

You're bright.

To your future.

Miss. I need you

to give me your name.

What's your name?

Miranda. Hollander.


These blood levels can't be right.

These aren't human.

We shot them. That's how they came out.

Yeah, right. Nice try.

Stop screwing with me.

Go and do the X-ray.

Okay. You're the boss. Whatever you say.

Just stay still and relax, ma'am.

Just need to shoot another X-ray.

Edward? What kind of joke is this?

Get out!

- What's going on?

- Just get in the car, Miranda.

I don't understand.

When are you going to tell me

what's going on?

We're going to Mexico.

Mexico? Why?

Well, it's beautiful down there.

Haven't you always wanted to see it?

Is it the police you're afraid of?


Whatever happened at the hospital,

I had nothing to do with it.


Are you saying I killed those people?


And no.

"Yes and no"?

What are you not telling me?

You're sick.

- And I can't help you.

- Sick?

With what?

I wish I knew.

But, Uncle Tom...

If I'm sick, shouldn't I go see a doctor

in the United States?


They can't help you either.

Why not?

We're going to Mexico

to find someone named Forbes.

He's an old colleague of mine

from university.

I was his professor.

Although sometimes I wondered

whether it wasn't him teaching me.

He was brilliant. Crazy but brilliant.

But I haven't seen him in years because I...

I didn't wanna have anything

more to do with him.

But he's the only one that can...

That might be able to help you, Miranda.

I tried.

But I...
