What will ascetic Madge do to prepare for a chaotic future?
Meanwhile, Kelly travels the country struggling with anxiety and questioning the meaning of her life when the threat of climate catastrophe looms.
When a right-wing political activist is murdered by a hacked sex doll, an MRI machine that reads brain patterns is used as key evidence.
