They travel down with a ladder and find a path underground and start digging. They discover the silver and are excited. However Zane plans to use the silver for his own exhibit as he too wants to go to Yale University. He steals the ladder trapping the gang.

Those who have touched the silver are turning seriously ill and acting very strange. Zane, especially as he is begging Henry to help him. Henry learns that a Rare Red Bat Fever is to blame for these actions.

Many of the students at Smithson High are ill. Jasper who also touched the silver, criticized Maggie for being a vegetarian during class and then faints. Uncle Bryan and the doctors take care of the students. However the doctors, refuse to give them the antidote. Henry knows that it is up to him to find an antidote or else, Jasper and many other students will die.

Henry travels to an secure base where the antidote is.(just like in the beginning of the episode) He grabs the antidote and tries to leave however, a security has found Henry and warns him to leave the antidote or he will shoot his tazer at him. "I don't want to taze you, bro" he says. Henry never willing to give up uses his skills to dodge his tazer and rushes to Jasper.
