A substance recently retrieved from the ocean floor is stored at the Institute, with Mark and Dr. Merrill warning that it could have psychotropic effects, altering (at least temporarily) the personality of anyone who comes into contact with it, and that there may be physical manifestations of contact with the substance as well. C.W. accidentally comes into contact with it, and becomes more hirsute and less reserved, treating himself to a night on the town and bedding the consort of a mob boss. When C.W. awakens, the transformation has reversed…and he has suddenly drawn himself, his work, and the entire Institute to the attention of a crime lord.
