Written by Justine Gillmer
Directed by Wayne Blair

Koen vows to do whatever he can to help the Hairypeople, but they are unmoved — particularly an enraged Araluen, whose only comfort is the possibility that Latani survived. Harry catches a human girl, Audie, spying. She's seen everything Koen can do with his blast of power. Can she be trusted?

After a successful pitch to Frith, Waruu takes a job in government as the public face of the Inclusion Initiative — a program of chemical assimilation for Hairies. Nerida is horrified to see Waruu on TV; front and center of the official launch of the project, presenting a hairless Boondee as the exemplar of the program.

Jarli is enraged by what he sees as the living death of the Hairyman presented to the cameras. The Bindawu — Jarli's clan — live in the same traditional ways they have for tens of thousands of years. They have no contact at all with humans, and any Bindawu who leaves Bindawu country is forbidden to return, a fact which Jarli is reminded of by clan elder Darana. But the look on Jarli's face as he glares in cold fury at Slade on the screen, suggests Jarli might not have finished his business with the humans.

Still anxious about the pregnancy, Charlotte has had a full blood screening done on the quiet at work — it comes back as positive for Subhuman. When she sees Slade on TV as part of the Initiative launch, and hears that it is Slade Industries' research which has enabled the Inclusion Initiative to be established, she knows exactly what he has done.
