Worst reunion ever.

13. With no time to lose, Kirsten insists that the lab let her stitch into her mom in order to save her life.

It's a risky move, but it's the only one they've got.

14. Kirsten talks to a captured Stinger, who insists that they'll fail to stitch into Jacqueline without his help.

The worst thing is that he's right. Without him they won't be able to properly stitch into a living sample -- it's never been done before by anybody but him.

15. Cameron accepts Stinger's help, but it's clear he doesn't trust him.

Stinger's theory is that if Kirsten can concentrate on her love for her mom then Jacqueline's brain can get a burst of energy that will wake her up.

18. Before Kirsten attempts the seriously dangerous stitch, Camsten share a kiss.

19. Stinger reveals what the strange readings in Kirsten and Jacqueline's brain scans are.

They were nanobots that were used to enable the stitching technology when Stinger first invented it. The nanobots not only make it possible to revive Jacqueline, but turn out to be the secret to how the stitch cases are chosen. Kirsten's brain was receiving information about potential stitch cases, and then ultimately deciding which cases to take. Turns out the true source of all the stitch cases has been Kirsten's brain all along.

20. Though things get seriously dangerous in the stitch, they manage to get Jacqueline out.
