Allison dreams of a car barreling down a highway headed straight for a concrete impass. The man inside seems wholly focused on his task and in the back of the car are gallons of gasoline. She wakes up just as the car crashes into the wall and explodes in a fiery ball of flames. Allison goes into work surprised to see a lot of military personnel and FEMA employees. There is a small briefing with Scanlon and Devalos where a military officer tells them cultures of a deadly virus called FV-39 have been discovered missing from their labs. Dr. Erik Westphal and his team was working on developing an antiserum and it is suspected that someone stole samples to sell on the black market. The team is told to keep everything quiet until they can find and recover the stolen samples. Meanwhile, with Joe home sick with the flu, Allison is en route to get a flu shot. On her way she sees the same car from her dream. She tries to pull the man from the car after he crashed but he pushes her away and locks the doors and succumbs to the explosion. Once home, Allison starts to feel sick and once again dreams of the man, this time seeing him with pustules and blood leaking from his eyes and nose. She calls Lee and knowing what he knows, the entire FEMA team is at the Dubois residence. They test the family, thinking that Allison might have been exposed to the deadly FV-39 virus since the man in the car was an employee who worked with Dr. Westphal who is now suspected of being the one to take the samples to try and sell. Allison and her family are cleared and they discover that whatever samples the man, Mitchelle Lomis, took were destroyed in the car with him. Everyone can now breathe a sigh of relief and the government decides to allocate money for production of the antiserum so this sort of thing doesn't happen. Allison dreams again and discovers that Dr. Erik Westphal set the whole thing up, infecting Lomis and taking the antiserum himself, to bring attention to the fact that a deadly virus without an antiserum could be devastating. Allison confronts him but the doctor insists he was doing it for the good of the country and she has no proof. In the end, Westphal has an allergic reaction the to antiserum and succumbs, ironically, to the common flu. Scanlon plans on asking DiNovi to marry him but discovers she harbors a secret that takes him by surprise.
