The test subjects technically capture the state and are levied for the design, aiming to reduce their judgment time.

One trial is on that of a’ love medicine‘, used to test the connection between captures. Capture Jeff, still reeling from his once mistake of killing his friend whilst drunk driving, is one of the subjects given said medicine. He has coitus with two of his fellow convicts and is latterly asked by Steve to choose which one of them to give Darkenfloxx, a medicine that induces violent physical and cerebral pain.
He declines to choose, claiming he feels nothing in particular for either one of them after the goods of the love medicine had worn off. He does, still, have passions for a different capture, Lizzy. On a coming day, Steve apologetically tells him that the’ advanced ups’ have chosen for him and that the youngish of the two women, Heather, must be fitted with a cure, though it’ll only last 5 twinkles. Jeff reluctantly agrees, and to his horror, Heather commits self-murder while on the Darkenfloxx. As Steve rushes out of the protuberance room, he drops his ignominious set of keys.

Jeff heists said keys and unlock Steve’s office cube; he discovers that there are no’ advanced ups’ and that Steve is really the driving force behind these inhuman trials. During a talk with Lizzy, it’s revealed that Jeff not only killed his friend in the auto accident but his gal as well. Lizzy hugs him and they kiss. Mark becomes cautious of Steve’s motives, and it’s inferred that he and Jeff concoct a plan.
After overreaching Steve’s coming trial on Lizzy, Jeff gets Steve to admit the true thing of the program to test a compliance medicine, B- 6. The other medicines are simply a side design, used to put B- 6 to the ultimate test. All the while the convicts have been subscribing to the colourful tests, they have really been under the influence of obedience medicine. With Mark and the police now approaching the islet, Steve attempts to make an escape, as Jeff and Lizzy attempt to overrun their fellow convicts who have been ordered( under the goods of the B- 6) to catch Jeff and Lizzy. Steve crashes his flying boat into a mountain, presumably dying, while Jeff and Lizzy motorboat out into the evening. Spiderhead is 2022
