Synopsis for "What Lies Beneath"
Desmond is discussing corporate matters with his advisers in the wake of the attack by the Atlas robot. After the meeting, Desmond goes to his private office to spy on Majestic's current activities at Rushmore. Majestic determines that the Atlas robot he fought was actually an older model than the ones he was familiar with in his youth. He then reveals to Desmond that he's aware of the secret surveillance before demanding that it stop. He then asks Desmond to meet him in the Amazon basin to attempt to track down the Atlas's command signal, which ordered it to attack Quickthink.
Once in the city of Punto Hejada while tracing the command signal, Majestic is attacked by a pair of Coda warriors. Easily beating them and killing one, he tries to question the survivor, but she triggers a suicide glands that prevents Majestic from learning anything. Desmond arrives shortly after surprised to see the two dead 'hotties'. Zealot then greets the duo and reveals that the two warriors were not Coda and that she's in Punto Hejada also seeking the cause of the Atlas robot attack. She also reveals that the warriors who attempted to kill Majestic were members of the Skein, a radical sect of the Coda.
Meanwhile, Desmond picks up the command signal from the Atlas robot and the trio heads for the source. They arrive at a very deep abyss in the jungle and explore further. Finding ancient embedded Kherubim technology, they are met by James Wyvern, a rival entrepreneur of Desmond's, flanked by men armed with high-yield plasma rifles. He plans to claim the large cache of ancient Kherubim technology for his own.
