The night before she’s to be chipped, Craig calls her to his bed for the night. She wakes early and spends a lot of time wrestling with her problem. Should she give in and be the slave he wants? That isn’t in her nature to do. Her plan obviously isn’t working, but giving in isn’t in her nature either. She agonizes over it. She realizes a disturbing truth about herself.
She’s picked up and packaged for transport by a high quality slave transport service. They have a very efficient and unique way of packaging a slave.
Mandy tells Cleveland that he has a leak in his office. One of his officers is on the bad guy’s payroll. That’s about the worst news he can hear and doesn’t want to believe it of any of his men but he accepts that she’s right.
Foo-Foo returns and unbelievably, she’s happy to be home.
When Rita is returned from her operation she’s supposed to be given a short period of rest during which the chips aren’t supposed to be used. Michelle decides they chips need to be tested, ‘just to be sure’. Craig is not happy with her decision and figures a punishment is in order to show her the error of her ways.
