Kiera and Carlos investigate when two murder-suicides happen in the same day - where the killers immediately committed suicide after eliminating their victims. The only tie between the two is a local computer gaming company, where both were software testers, that's been doing more than just developing video games; it's developing an immersive holographic program and Kiera decides to try it out. The effects on her are devastating - Kiera's HUD system short circuits and her internal electronics go haywire. Kagame and Liber8 attempts to take control of her, while she is in this bad state. Alec works frantically to reboot her processors and manages to save Kiera from killing her partner. At the same time, Liber8 discovers who is behind Kiera - Alec, while Alec also finds a previously unknown file in Kiera's systems - discovering it is actually a message from his future self, addressed to him.
