History was repeating itself, although, unlike Marcus, Cat was an unwilling recipient of Phil's youth. However, she was unable to stop it happening. The speed of Phil's transfer of youth and loss of life was much quicker than in the earlier case of Rufus as Mac's processing speed was now extremely fast.

Rufus knew something was up, but didn't know what.
