Dorian demonstrates a device called an E-Rat-icator which emits a soft, high pitched whine that is supposed to be innocuous but annoying to rats, which is an abysmal failure.
Steve discovers that Dorian is actually highly intelligent, and carries classical literature pieces with him, and that he’s hiding because he wishes to be left alone and does not trust society.
But Dorian shows up under the pretense that he is disposing of dead rats when he subdues the police chief and tells Steve and Rachel to leave town and go public with what they know about Dr. When Rachel and Steve return home, they plan to get out of town along with Steve’s younger sister, Lindsay (Katharine Isabelle), but when they arrive at Steve’s house, Steve’s parents (Terry David Mulligan and Susan Hogan) reveal that they are also part of the conspiracy and that they moved to Cradle Bay for the sole purpose to sign him up for Caldicott’s program.
Steve and Lindsay try to get out but they get ambushed by a group of Blue Ribbons waiting for them outside the house.

Buckley) assaults Rachel in the school basement, the E-Rat-icator goes off, and immediately sends the student into a psychotic fit, driving him away.During their personal investigation, Steve and Rachel try to find out what exactly has been happening to the Blue Ribbon kids, which leads them to a mental hospital called Bishop Flats following a lead on the disc that Gavin left behind.In a long-term relationship with Marshall Eriksen, but also expresses attraction to women on multiple occasions, especially about her friend Robin Scherbatsky, and says that one of her life goals before marrying Marshall was to have a "lesbian relationship."Clara Oswald mentions her romance with the celebrated author, stating that Jane Austen 'is a phenomenal kisser'.In another episode says to her friend Rigsy, 'Sometimes Jane Austen and I 'prank each other'.
