Alan Blunt convinces Alex to help provide some information to a meeting of the United Kingdom's emergency COBRA committee. Based on Alex's observations, COBRA deduces that Scorpia, through the use of nanoshells, has secretly added a lethal amount of cyanide to a number of vaccines at Consanto Enterprises, including the yellow fever vaccines given to the football team and the BCG injections recently received by London schoolchildren. They also figure out that Scorpia can activate the poison at will using beams of terahertz radiation. A search of the city for the dishes that will transmit the terahertz beams begins, but Jones and Blunt suspect that there is more to Scorpia's plan that meets the eye. They fake Alex's escape from MI6 custody to enable him to rejoin Rothman and learn the true location of the terahertz dishes, by having Smithers outfit Alex with a locator beacon disguised as a dental brace. Alex secretly deduces that Scorpia has always wanted to kill him, as he recalls being injected when undergoing a medical examination earlier at Malagosto.
