Special Agents Torres and McGee are chatting in the office when M.E. Palmer brings his daughter in to meet the team. McGee receives the call about a man run over by a truck and the team shows up on the scene. S.A. Torres has to back the truck up to remove the body from its tire.

The dead man, Phillip, was not supposed to be on Quantico’s property. He had bolt cutters on him and multiple past charges including dishonorable discharge.

At the team meeting, it is determined that Phillip has not had a job since 2016 but is still somehow paying his car payments. He also had recently bought up cryptocurrency and had racked up $50,000 in debt.

Victoria is in her dad’s lab when S.A. Torres and Parker come in to look over the evidence. Phillip’s phone got crushed but a flask survived. S.A. Knight is interviewing Phillip’s ex-wife who explains that Phillip got caught up with a conspiracy theory group. M.E. Palmer and F.S. Hines are discussing why Hines hasn’t turned in her contract renewal yet when they both smell the flask to determine what liquor is inside.

S.A.s McGee, Parker, and Knight head to Phillip’s RV and find a manifesto that’s signed by The Raven and not in Phillip’s writing. They also find a mysterious bottle marked poison. F.S. Hines and M.E. Palmer get locked into a lab when the liquid from inside the flask turns out to be a bio-hazard.

Director Vance finds S.A. Torres playing cards with Victoria and informs him there is a Code 2, lockdown, in the lab. Victoria has a lot of questions about her dad and F.S. Hines. S.A. Torres takes her to the lab to speak to her dad through the glass.

Dr. Carol Wilson shows up from the C.D.C. to help figure out what the toxin is. She informs everyone that she isn’t sure what the toxin is but she has Dr. Yuri Pastov to help her along the way. When they leave the lab Dr. Carol tells the team that F.S. Hines and M.E. Palmer are in grave danger and Dr. Yuri hasn’t replied to any of her calls but she knows he is in Norfolk.

The team video calls Dr. Yuri’s office in Norfolk and his partner answers and tells them that Dr. Yuri has been missing for 2 days now.

S.A. Torres plays video games with Victoria outside the lab. Hines and Palmer listen in as Victoria tells S.A.s Torres and Knight that she has a bully at school.

S.A.s McGee and Parker are taking prints off of the manifesto. Palmer and Hines are arguing about trying to make their own antidote. Dr. Carol tells them they are having an adrenaline surge and if they don’t stop fighting they’ll be dead in hours. Palmer immediately begins having a nose bleed.

S.A. Parker says the team has 2 and a half hours to find the antidote now that Palmer is showing symptoms. McGee has a lead on where the suspect is.

Dr. Carol video chats with Hines and Palmer about what is really happening. Palmer wants to leave immediately, but Dr. Carol says they are too infectious. Their only hope is the team find the antidote with The Raven’s group.

When the team goes to check on McGee’s location find, a man named Dennis runs away and crashes into S.A. Knight. She loses her gun in the fall and Dennis pulls out a knife! She grabs a broken broomstick and pins him against the dumpster. Dennis is placed in cuffs.

Palmer and Hines are talking about what would happen to Victoria if he were to die. He doesn’t want her to hear that another parent has died.

Victoria tells S.A. Torres that in moments like these she misses her mom the most. She feels everyone is trying to hide what is really happening to her father and Hines. Her mom always told her the truth even if it was bad. Palmer overhears all of this and it breaks his heart.

McGee and Parker interrogate Dennis “Buggy”. He says it’s not him, there’s someone named The Raven. He shows them a hidey-hole in the wall that has a map and notes. The notes say that The Raven will keep the antidote on him at all times and the map shows 3 locations The Raven will hit.

Palmer has the same dream again and is woken up by everyone yelling and banging on the windows. Hines is passed out next to him. They know they are in trouble. Dr. Carol tells them to make their last phone calls.

The team splits up into 3 teams to check to 3 locations. S.A.s Knight, McGee, and Parker each take one.

Hines leaves her mom a goodbye voicemail and Palmer has another talk about death with his daughter through the lab glass. He tells her to remember Mr. Roger’s and all his neighborhood helpers. He tells her he’s going to die and she needs to always be on the look for her helpers.

S.A. Mcgee finds the suspect at his location on the map and shoots him dead. He takes the antidote and runs. S.A.s Knight and Parker take other suspects into custody.

Dr. Carol comes into the lab at the last minute with the antidote and saves Hines and Palmer!

Hines and Palmer are in the hospital room when Hines says she has signed her renewal contract because she wouldn’t want to be without her helpers. S.A. McGee and Director Vance pull the team out of the room and say they didn’t get The Raven. They just received a letter from him with just the words NEVERMORE! The Raven lives!?!
