Under the Bridge, Part 2 title.jpg
The wrong job on the wrong bus with the wrong convict.
Donald Essex and Perrin Crocker both ride a prison bus down a Tennessee highway. Donald as a guard, Perrin as a prisoner.

When antagonized by a fellow prisoner, Perrin's ability activates on instinct, sending bone spikes in every direction. The spikes kill many of the passengers, including the driver, causing the bus to crash. Miraculously, the only survivor is Donald.

Donald wakes in a hospital, having sustained no injuries. Nathan and agents from the government arrive with questions for Donald...


In the Memphis General Hospital, Donald Essex reviews a sheet of paper. Donald tells Nathan that he doesn't know how he survived the bus crash without a scratch on him, but Nathan knows that someone on the bus had abilities that killed everyone except for Donald. Nathan asks Donald to join a task force he has created to take down these evolved humans, but Donald says that he is not interested. Nathan tells Donald to sleep on it and he'll be back in the morning.

Donald returns to his hotel room, planning to leave the place as soon as possible. He asks himself what he has gotten into, and further scorns himself for talking to himself. Donald then relives the scene on the bus, where Perrin Crocker had sprouted spikes. He recounts using his own special ability to nullify Perrin's spikes by transmuting his own chest into water. Donald imagines what would've happened if he had told Nathan that he himself had an ability.

Just then, Nathan's bodyguards break into the room, telling Donald to get down on the floor. They say that they found Donald's DNA in the saltwater of the bus crash scene, and knows that Donald is a posthuman. Donald, however, attacks the bodyguards, spraying a massive torrent of water at them. An agent sprays a substance in Donald's face, which subdues him and renders him unconscious. As he starts to faint, Donald's body begins dissolving into a watery puddle.

Nathan walks into Donald's hotel room and asks what happened. He asks if Donald is dead. The agent says that it is hard to tell, and Nathan says to wrap it up and head back to New York. When the agent asks what to do with Donald's watery remains, Nathan says to pour it away into the Mississippi River.
