Miguel finally got through to Cammie. They had survived the nanotech by mimicking the signal from chips that Union sympathizers carried around to shield them during attacks. The idea originally came from Dr. Weller. Miguel sent Cammie the signal so she could work with.

Sweet Home Chicago

gen:LOCK Season 1 Episode 8 Recap

The team headed to Chicago where the Union was invading. They planned to isolate Nemesis by using Chase to taunt him. Nemesis had been upgraded with more dynamic nanotech. Unfortunately, the Union had patched the nanotech signal, and Nemesis was listening in on their network.

Cammie convinced the team to mindshare. She mindshared with Kazu, but Chase refused to join them. Valentina and Yaz merged too. Yaz tried to convince Chase to let go and change. Unfortunately, they had consumed too much uptime. Chase bought the rest of the team some time to download and reset their uptime. However, he exceeded the uptime limit and lost his ability to go back to his body.

Despite his age, Leon uploaded to Sinclair’s holon, and Miranda’s presence disturbed Nemesis. Chase realized that since consuming uptime no longer mattered, he could mod anything.

The team was back in the Cyberbrain, and Chase warned them that, without his body, he could turn into Nemesis. The difference was that they had each other. They latched onto Nemesis Chase inside the Cyberbrain, and Cammie was able to shut down the nanotech. Together, they defeated Nemesis, but inside the Cyberbrain, he revealed there were more copies to be defeated.
