Anyway, Walter settles in with the remote control. Outside, the Observer powers up his doohickey, lifts the lid over the special switch, swallows a couple of times (little nervous?) ... and then closes it again and shuts off the machine. He looks back again at the lab, then stands up and walks away.
Inside, Walter's drifting off to sleep, so he shuts off the television -- and then is utterly terrified when he sees a reflection of Peter in the screen. He starts yelling in horror, bringing Agent Tim running in from the hallway, where he finds Walter clutching himself on the side of the bed, muttering about seeing the man again. "It was the man from the mirror," he says. Agent Tim starts mentally filling out his transfer-request application.
