Adam has infiltrated the base while Carol is in her weakened state, killing a nurse and taking on her physical form.
With Carol unable to perform the function she was built to perform, it now falls to Shiori to pick up the slack. The only problem is, no one knows what the result of transmitting the data to Gaia will be. It is possible the backlash from Gaia will overload her brain and kill her. Shiori is willing to make the sacrifice...but is Carol willing to let her?
