MacGrath: Kuo. Well, hey. Well that is a really new look for you.
Kuo: Yeah, you like it?
MacGrath: Well, you did forget a cape but... come on, it's a little extreme, don't you think?
Kuo: I'm not an agent anymore. You're looking at the new me, it's a little hard to hide.
MacGrath: Kuo, you all right?
Kuo: Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine, but it's cute that you care.
Kuo: I'm really sorry. I didn't, I don't.
MacGrath: You've got to learn how to control your powers. Forget it. It's fine. You just need some time, all right? Believe me, if anybody knows what you're going through, it's me. Better than anyone.
Kuo: No you don't, MacGrath, you don't know. We are not the same. You got your powers in an explosion. It was over in a flash. What they did to me, was slow.
MacGrath: And we are going to make Bertrand pay for that, but if we're going to fight him together, you have to get control of your powers!
Kuo: Don't yell at me! I don't know how.
MacGrath: I've been at this longer than you. I can help you.
Kuo: Okay. Okay. You're right. When do we start?
MacGrath: We start right now. Let's see what you can do.
Kuo: Well, I can fly. That's pretty cool, huh?
MacGrath: Okay, if you're trying to make me jealous, it worked.
Kuo: Some of Wolfe's notes talked about the theory that two Conduits, compatible ones, might be able to combine their powers.
MacGrath: Oh, that sound interesting. I've actually done a few things with Nix.
Kuo: Please stop. I do not want to hear anything about that.
Kuo: Cole, over here! Hold up, Militia.
MacGrath: Let's try out Wolfe's theory, combine our powers. Now! Excellent.
Kuo: Our powers do combine!
MacGrath: Oh, we're gonna have to remember that one.
Kuo: Let's try something else. There's more of them! Do it!
So, Cole. I have been reading over the notes that I dug out of Wolfe's lab, and everything points to a Blast Core hidden somewhere around here.
MacGrath: Nice job, Kuo. Where's it at?
Kuo: Yeah, his notes are intentionally cryptic, but he did have a photograph attached. I've already sent it to your phone.
MacGrath: Thanks. Let's look around, maybe we'll find where it was taken.
Kuo: You know what, let's check these coffins. Maybe we can pry open the lids.
MacGrath: Not a problem. No Blast Core, just another photo.
Kuo: Wolfe was paranoid, but considering what happened, I'd say he was justified.
MacGrath: Maybe Bertrand wants the Blast Core, too. Could be why the Militia's poking around. We better keep looking.
Kuo: Yeah. Go, go! MacGrath!
MacGrath: What the... what's with the graveyard? Why's it so packed?
Kuo: You didn't know? It's the same plague that you dealt with in Empire City, only it's more lethal now. It worked its way all the way down the coast. So it was only a matter of time before it hit New Marais. Now it is raging out of control. So many people are sick or dead already. There are more bodies than people can bury.
MacGrath: Wow, maybe the Beast isn't the worst thing that could happen to this town.
Kuo: Wait, something is strange. I'm feeling... I don't know.
MacGrath: These guys escaped Bertrand's lab the same time we did. They've got powers just like you!
Kuo: I felt them before I even saw them. Oh, God. That's what they did to me. Bertrand must have a way of transferring powers!
It's in position!
