Hey, David is working in the fields when he feels this high frequency telepathic signal come crashing through his brain. It's actually from Petra, his little sister. I suppose the irony is that both of his father's kids are mutants. This means that Joseph has mutant DNA ; in a sense he is what he most reviles.
