When Aelita has an argument with Jeremie about her father, she and Odd go to Lyoko to collect data from a terminal to try to find her father, but without telling the rest of the group. They go to Carthage, and are doing quite well when Jeremie's superscan detects an activated tower. He goes with Ulrich and Yumi to to the factory, when he detects that a key was pushed in.
He finds Aelita and Odd in Carthage, scolding them for not telling him. He wants them to get out of the celestial dome so he can program a Overboard for them to get out. They start riding it, but then they see that Mantas are coming out of the south pole of the Celestial Dome. Jeremie checks it out, and finds out that the Core of Lyoko is being attacked. The activated tower in the Mountain Sector was just a ruse!
Odd is devirtualized by a Manta and Aelita is left alone to protect the Core of Lyoko. Ulrich and Yumi go to Carthage to help Aelita, and they successfully protect the core. Jeremie asks Aelita if she wants to go to a terminal to try to find some data about her father, and she collects data from it. Later that evening, Jeremie doesn't find anything about her father, but then points out a DNA strand belonging to him. They think that her father might still be alive, somewhere on Lyoko.
