Synopsis:
Nick gets into a fight at an unnamed foreign embassy, and winds up being injected with a drug that will cause hallucinations, "hyper-intense paranoia", and death after 6 hours. He wanders the streets of NYC, hoping to reach a set rendezvous point for a scheduled pick-up via the Heli-Carrier's vortex beam. However, he's mistaken by a cop as a drunk, and when his felow agents show up, the drug causes him to see them as 3 of his worst enemies! Jimmy Woo comments that other agents have been going berzerk, which was what Nick was investigating in the first place. Nick is found by Sister Angela, who offers to help get him to the pick-up point. However, they're intercepted by 2 of the spies, who tie them up and send their car racing downhill on a dangerous mouontain road! Dum Dum, Jimmy & Gabe, who've been following in their van, almost crash head-on, when suddenly the vortex beam picks up both vehicles! Onboard the Heli-Carrier, a doctor about to inject Nick with an "antidote" turns out to be the same spy who drugged him in the first place-- and at the last second Nick turns the tables, the spy dying by his own needle.
