Brown begins to chase Scolex as he is getting away but they both end up in a horrible accident. Brown’s car blows up and Scolex’s hand gets crushed by a bowling ball. After Sandford gets away with the foot Brenda takes John back to her lab to transform him into a complete cybernetic man, bringing him to life with a simple computer chip.
