After taking a break for the World Series, 'Next' is back to continue Paul LeBlanc's (John Slattery) and Shea Salazar's (Fernanda Andrade) hunt for an AI that could be anywhere in the world. Fortunately for Shea and Paul, the AI Next has one important weakness - it needs a dedicated server to house the majority of its code. Thanks to some help from Shea's son Ethan (Evan Whitten), they've been able to trace Next down to an address in Darthmouth.

Just because the AI was fooled and foiled Ethan, however, doesn't mean he's out of danger - and things are about to get a whole lot worse for the Salazars before they can get better.

In the promo for the next episode, we see that the AI is still focused on undermining Shea's investigation by targeting her family. Her husband, Ty (Gerardo Celasco) and Ethan go on the run, avoiding as many connected systems as possible along the way. There's always a workaround, however, and while Next isn't able to reach Ty and Ethan directly, it's still able to hack into police phones and put an Amber Alert out for Ty and his son.

All it takes is the changing of a few important records to turn Ty into a criminal, wanted by the police. It won't be long before some do-gooder recognizes the pair and tries to turn Ty in - but can he extricate himself from the situation safely?

In the meantime, the next clue towards Next's plans involve a research facility called Biomotion Labs, where Paul is reunited with an old friend, Professor Richard Pearish (Michael Herzovi). Knowing just how much influence Next can have on someone with the right leverage, Paul is reluctant to trust even his old friend - but is he being paranoid, or has Next already gotten to Richard to enact the next part of its plans?

The synopsis for the next episode reads: "Shea and LeBlanc head to Dartmouth to investigate NEXT’s whereabouts, which are potentially linked to Biomotion Labs. There, they visit LeBlanc’s friend, Professor Richard Pearish (Michael Herzovi) for answers. Meanwhile, Shea, Ethan and Ty take extra precautions to disconnect from electronics and the Internet, and LeBlanc urges Abby to do so, as well, but NEXT complicates their plans."
