Returning to the clinic, Luke learns that Noah had kept all his notes down in a book and yells at him for allowing it to fall into Fox's hands. Luke decides to visit his underworld stool pigeon Flee to see if there is anything he knows. When he arrives at Flea's place of employment, he learns that Flea knows quite a lot in deed, thanks to his new friends: Comanche and Shades.
