She gets a sharp object and tries to threaten the scientists.

The clip concludes with a naked Maeve, saying that she cannot tell which is real; as she is brought to her knees on the floor, it appears that she is experiencing a hallucination.

In his interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marsden said that it had not been abot getting the first ten episodes done, but it had been about mapping out what the next five or six years were going to be.

"We wanted everything in line so that when the very last episode airs and we have our show finale, five or seven years down the line, we knew how it was going to end the first season," the actor said.
