The Immortal Brain, Part Four
After being woken up by Harry, Jess discovers a message left to her by Bernie. In the message he explains that he's gone after Joe. As she finishes with the message Rosa contacts Jess and tells her about the falling out with Joe. Jess replies that none of it is Rosa's fault, then goes to explain things to the Night Stalkers.
Having suited up, Jess leaves Scrufflebeck to wait for Joe.
Talking to Inner Joe, Samuel reveals that he is in fact Victor (the eleventh shell of Project Sixteen who was believed to have died following augmentation).
Turning his attention back to Joe, Samuel explains that it is Inner Joe who is holding back his powers. After warning Joe that he'll be hurt, Samuel then proceeds to spear him.
In the real world Bernie is shocked to see Samuel's actions.
