Eight people are killed in an aged care facility — all of them have their hearts ripped out. Again the government blames the Hairies. The media are calling it a massacre. Crowds of protestors gather at the checkpoint into The Zone, all too ready to condemn the 'subhumans'.

Tension is mounting between Waruu and the militant Hairyman Maliyan. Waruu believes strength lies in unity, but Maliyan wants the Hairies to stand for themselves.

McIntyre has Waruu captured, bound and gagged, and confronts him with the evidence of his involvement in the breakout from the Containment Centre. McIntyre offers a deal — hand over the three escapees, or Waruu will be charged with murder. Waruu turns the tables on McIntyre — reminding him he has footage of the guard's death, and the fact that he was not killed by having his heart ripped out. That was done post-mortem, by someone wanting to frame the Hairies. Does McIntyre really want that revealed to the world?

Koen is surprised when Waruu appears at the bar, demanding Koen attend to his Cleverman duties and kill the Namorrodor, the beast that is tearing people's hearts out and causing such grief for the Hairies. But Koen's not interested. He thinks those Dreaming stories are for kids. Waruu is appalled at his attitude, but Koen doesn't care.

Slade is spending time in his lab, observing his lead scientist's experiments on a human and is unmoved when the experiment goes terribly wrong. But Slade is the first to offer himself as a guinea pig when the substance they're testing is modified, and the effect is immediate and quite remarkable — he has greatly increased strength, agility and endurance. Excited by the success of his experiment, Slade is impatient to work with the Cleverman again, and McIntyre is dispatched to bring Koen and Kora to him, whatever it takes. But in the armed struggle a gun goes off, and it would appear both McIntyre and Ash have been killed.
