Carter and Jo make a stop near a creek with Dr. Plotkin to check in on Taggert. Plotkin and Taggert continue their feud as Plotkin is there to pick up a scientific instrument that belongs to him, while Taggert is explaining why his own research benefits all life on the planet.

Be sure to watch the clip and tune in to the season finale at 8/7c to see if Plotkin had something to do with it, or if external factors are at work.
