Synopsis for "Think Tank: Part 2"

Rhona Burchill has captured the Fantastic Four. She injects Reed Richards showing him the horror that haunts her, her potential as a child genius snatched away from her when Richards was accepted into the Baxter program instead of her. As Richards snaps back into reality, Burchill starts the bidding on the Fantastic Four, selling their abilities to shadowed individuals worldwide. At the end of the bidding, it is Latveria who wins the prize. Burchill readies the Fantastic Four for travel, bringing them to the highest bidder to dissect them and figure out how they really work. Burchill gets her android to start loading the Four onto a floating platform, working quickly before S.H.I.E.L.D. discovers their presence.

Richards makes his escape, pushing the helicopter his team and he arrived on off the side of the building and onto the floating platform creating an explosion. Burchill begins her hunt for the missing member. She finds him strung up in the ceiling. Reed explains he was just timing her to see how long he could last without being found, having already pulled the drip from his team mates. The Thing is the first to wake, fighting off a group of androids on his own without any hesitation. Burchill takes advantage of Grimm's gentleman behavior and takes him down. As Burchill and her androids attack Reed, he is protected by Sue as she regains consciousness. Burchill takes Sue out quickly, angering Johnny. Burchill is a step ahead, creating a smokescreen to make it difficult for Johnny to get a good shot.

In all the confusion, Burchill retreats, explaining another time she will get rid of all the variables and all that will be left will be her and Reed, and she will kill him herself. Reed is left wondering what actually happened and how it could all be left up to luck. This leaves Reed at the feeling of unpreparedness and refuses for something like this to happen again. As things get back to normal at the Baxter Building, The Storm children are greeted by their father, Grimm's heart rate is found to be higher than normal, and Reed checks his messages, receiving a distress call asking for his help in any possible way.
