She rescues Angelina and Ben's plane is diverted to Costa Rica to rescue the group. Saanvi is now running a private medical practice, but is soon revealed to be following 828 leads in a back room.

Coupled with the return of the tailfin to the Caribbean, Ben says science now proves the passengers died on the plane.

In exchange for Vance allowing Pete to help Michaela confront Jace at the lake, Ben agrees to allow Eureka to experiment upon him.
