Synopsis: Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman) rushes to save Ortega (Martha Higareda) and later meets a formidable foe.

Kitty Cameo: In one scene Kovacs and Ortega enter a Chinese restaurant where they arrange to use virtual reality to try to meet with one of Tanaka’s contacts. An orange tabby cat is sitting on the bar when they enter. Kovacs even pets the cat for a second. Fortunately the cat is not present later when they return to the restaurant to find a gruesome scene.
