Transcription of Rachel video:
Key unlocks a door.
Rachel: (whisper) I’m in Hugh and Darla’s flat. Looks like our turncoat I.T. guy was right. Mittelwerk didn’t know about this place.
Rachel is frightened of her reflection in the mirror. Sound of voices in the hallway. Rachel finds a note from Hugh (see Rachel's blog for image).
Rachel: Heading to the racket club. Didn’t want to wake you. Can you be ready by 3? I’ll swing by and pick you up. Hugh. If I was Darla I’d hide it… behind the video of Gidget.
Rachel: O.K. guys, here it goes. An I.D. with my face on it. (see photo montage below) Healthway Alliance. A plane ticket. Sri Lanka. That was the island? All those injections for Sri Lanka? What the hell?
Rachel finds a remote control and presses play. Another video begins on the T.V.
Darla: Rachel, um, I guess I feel a bit ashamed coming to you like this. But please understand why I had my friend deliver this package to you in the park. (sigh) By the time you’re watching this, I’ll be, ah, see that’s the reason. The end of that sentence is always dead and God knows, I don’t want to be that cliché. By the time you watch this I’ve left the bloody country. I’ve left him. I’ll have run. I made you an ID pass. Use it. Mittelwerk's about to do something awful, Rachel. I'm not quite sure what, but I know you, you'll find out. Just one last bit, um, if Hugh's still, you know, around . . . Look, I know how you feel about these people and about us but I love him, Rachel. There’s still a good man in there. He got caught up but he’s been helping me. Sri Lanka was the last straw for him too. And believe it or not, but he’s been protecting you. Mittlewerk’s convinced, at least for now, he doesn’t want a martyr on his hands. But that doesn’t mean he won’t change his mind. Especially after you uncover what’s happening in Sri Lanka. Whew, so, be safe, love and get the bastards for me will ya. Once this is all said and done we’ll have martinis in Monte Carlo. You know, I never met the big man, Hanso but something tells me he’d be pr… (video ends)
Rachel: (looking through the package) Spider Protocol, Trial J. And this is the ship. Paik Heavy Industry. The Hanso Foundation. The Helgus Antonius its, its a hospital ship? Oh, God, why are all the wards labeled quarantined?
Contents of the Package (as appears on Rachel’s blog page):
(N0te: I'm being told that the code 3of9 bar code at the bottom of the Melanie Walker badge reads, "Andrew Shea.")

Is Melanie Walker a character from Batman? What is the Healthway Alliance? Is the Helgus Antonius quarantined to keep an infection/virus in or out? Does TRIAL J imply that there was TRIALS A through I? And what is the Spider Protocol? It is odd, however, that the Fixer told Rachel that much would be revealed when she went to Darla and Hugh’s flat, when in reality all we ended up with was more questions.

New ROT newsletter:
I'm a truly honored to have so many loyal and dedicated fans and supporters. I wish I could sit down with each and every one of you and discuss my work and the science of what I do but alas, that would be too time-consuming for the both of us.
I understand you all took my advice to heed change. Or at least a few of you read my words and took note of it and that's all I can ever ask. Remember don't ever dwell on the changes that confront us on a daily basis but face them head on and allow them to evolve your life and yourself.
I won't tax your time or your brain today with a long message but I would like you all to take a moment out of your busy schedules to sit down in a quiet place, relax, and think about all the good things in your lives. While they may seem few and far between they do exist. It is easier to think of and focus on the negative but not always the healthiest or the most productive way to utilize your mental energies.
When the mind is at rest it is at its most productive. Maybe that's why the yellow lab will rest up to 18 hours in a day. Think about that my friends and have a wonderful day.
Dr. Vincent "Wally" Bole
