Synopsis for "Chrysalis & Counting"
C.C. Rendozzo has Agent Wax at gunpoint which forces Grifter to relent his gun and surrender. She then has Wax in opening the container but only to find it empty. However, Wax declares it is not and finds a small capsule containing a microchip. He concludes that they have been played and state that the chip was used as a crude homing beacon. C.C. takes the chip and realizes that it still has some value. She then intends to kill Wax and Grifter, but fortunately the latter pulls out a hidden handgun and kills C.C.'s men save for her right-hand Lincoln and ends up in a Mexican standoff with C.C. Suddenly, a loud sonic sound erupts upon them and are knocked unconcious.
Thereafter, Grifter and Wax find themselves awaken at C.C.'s Florida Keys residence by C.C., who have brought them there and not actually taken prisoner. She states that the sonic attack was mishandled by one of her men Ramon and offers a truce between them in helping each other to find the agent. She introduce them to Ramon, a computer hacker, who is cracking down the chip obtained in Detroit to find the agent.

Marlowe's projection then disappear as Dolby and Garfield are left speechless.
Somewhere in a suburban neighborhood, a very typical nuclear family enjoys the day in which they have Agent Orange - the agent that C.C., Grifter, and Wax are after - in their company.
