Previously on Linc: Linc has heard voices since he was a kid, but they’re not what they seem. He can hear other people’s thoughts, but the ability has left him friendless and homeless. A mysterious corporation, Genetitech, tracks him down and offers to train him to use his skills. He soon learns that there are others with strange power like him, and when Genetitech is raided he is forced to go onto the run with one of them.

"What now?" he asked. He hadn't expected that question, although in retrospect he really should have; it had probably was really obvious that he knew her when he wasn't surprised at her existence earlier. Since he wasn't expecting the question, however, his first inclination was to try to cover up their association. He didn't know why he was bothering at this point, Moira clearly knew the truth.
"Don't try to play dumb with me after the interrogation you've been putting me through," she said, clearly recuperating from her shock. "How did you know about Eva?"
"Sorry, I didn't hear you the first time," he said and paused, he still wasn't sure what to say. After a brief hesitation, he decided that he should just tell her the truth. Considering that they were running for their lives together, it didn't make a whole lot of sense to keep anything from her. So he told her everything that had happened between Eva and him, starting from that first day at Genetitech. When he thought about it, there really wasn't that much to say. As he talked, the woman's voice came over the speakers and announced three more stops. Moira listened quiely when he talked and, to his surprise, didn't interrupt with any questions.
"That explains it, I guess," was all she said when he finished talking.
"Explains what?" he asked, puzzled by her answer.
"If she was able to overpower the disrupters to communicate with you, she must have been able to overpower them to attack Kate, Joe, and Harold," she said and stood up. "C'mon, we're getting off at the next stop."
"I'm still not sure she did it," Linc said, pulling humself up with one of the grab bars.
"That's what you said, but who else could have done it?"
"I don't know who did it, I just don't think it was her."
"Sodo station," the voice said and the train slowed to a stop.
