Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a heart, a liver, or a kidney. Imagine a technology that could provide those life saving organs for a nominal fee.....and imagine what a company would do to monopolize that technology. On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, P.J. Colding leads a team of scientists who have discovered this holy grail of medicine. By reverse engineering the genomes of thousands of mammals, Colding's team has dialed back the evolutionary clock to re-create their common ancestor. The method? Illegal. The result? A computer engineered living creature --- an animal whose organs can be permanently transplanted into anyone with zero chance of rejection. There's just one problem: these ancestors turn out not to be the docile herd animals Colding's team envisioned. Instead, Colding's work has given birth to something big, something evil. ......AND IT'S VERY, VERY HUNGRY!

Jian, Claus, and Tim successfully implant blastocysts in all fifty cows. Jian tries to play matchmaker for Colding. Sara makes it crystal clear that she has zero interest in Andy's "gun." Jian's coding for accelerated development appears to be working brilliantly. The ancestors are growing more than fourteen times as quickly as a human fetus would. Clayton and Sara continue to bond. Clayton introduces Colding to Sven's cattle rustler, Mookie.
