Zoo Sneak Peek: Did Jackson, That Mumbling Mutant, Just 'Find' the Cure?

Jackson Oz is in a bad, bad way tonight on Zoo (CBS, 9/8) — but that could turn out to be a very good thing for our heroes.

Succumbing to more and more of the side effects that come with possessing the mutant gene/triple-helix DNA, Jackson (played by James Wolk) is seen in the above clip frantically digging a grave for dearly departed Chloe, even though her body got shipped off to France some time ago.

But it’s what Jackson mumbles as Abraham attempts to temper his tantrum that flicks on a light bulb for a fellow team member, perhaps lighting a way toward the cure to the animal mutation. Press play above to hear what he blurts.

In this week’s episode, titled “Jamie’s Got a Gun,” Mitch digs into Jackson’s past to get the answers they need to make the cure, while the rest of the team hunts for triple helix-related evidence inside a quaint English town.
