SINCE finding out about the existence of ‘Operation Basswood’, Laura has been determined to find out exactly what it is.
She might be sitting at the big swanky boardroom table of the Dryden Commission, but there are clearly secret plans being made and conversations going on that she has no idea about.
So she decides to use her charms on Professor Neil Sommer to see what she can learn.
Laura is already committed to the Pro-Synth cause, and that’s reinforced even more when daughter Mattie returns home, bringing Leo home with her.
They’re all shocked to see him return, on account of him basically being in a coma for a year and nearly dying and all, but also happy.
Well, Laura is nervous and reluctant, but daughter Mattie talks her round. And now that Leo is technically human, it looks like there could well be more to his and Mattie’s relationship.
The Hawkins are a rarity when it comes to humans accepting Synths though – as Mia finds out when she tries to rent a flat. Her plan is to prove that the two species can integrate and co-exist peacefully, but her new neighbours quite clearly disagree. As does Agnes, the fiery little rebel synth, who – over at the railyard – is challenging Max’s authority, especially after Laura approaches him with a daring new plan.
Considering Max has already refused entry to a group of refugee Synths, Agnes isn’t happy to hear he’s thinking about opening their home turf to humans…
