Mohinder Suresh: [narrating] When a change comes some species feel the urge to migrate. They call it "Zugunruhe", a pull of the soul to far away place, following a scent in the wind, a star in the sky. The ancient message comes calling the kindred to take flight and gather together. Only then can they hope to survive the cruel season to come.
