ADA Gabe Lowen is hiding for the Bustamonte crime family in a Manhattan hotel suite, officially guarded by Joe's team, but really saved by Vince. He confide in Cath that he also transforms into a monster, like Vince but without spontaneous normalization, unless he takes medication, but recently builds up immunity. So he asks to swap his pills for Vince's DNA in a blood sample, which he believes to be able to extract a vital ingredient from, hoping they may help each-other. Vince refuses, although Cath admits she wants a short at a public relationship, but Gabe tracks JT down and gets his way. While Vince and Cath enjoy a normal day, JT finds the medication is far too toxic for regular use, Gabe learns of an even more daunting drawback.
