"I saw it on your face," she spits at him as soon as they're behind closed doors. "You knew! You knew what he did and you ignored it! I wanna know why!" Jack reasons that when Sloane did this thing, he wasn't intent on global destruction; he thought he was doing good. Syd's not buying it. She thinks that if Jack had come forward with what he knew, they could have gotten their hands on the flower sooner, turned it over to the DSR, and avoided this whole damn fiasco. But he didn't. Which makes him just as guilty as Sloane. Jack looks like he just swallowed a quart of lemon juice. Marshall enters and says he thinks he found something.
Conference Room of Endless Expositions. Marshall once again explains that the brain coding goes deep in the Sloane Clone. Which means that he'll never give them the orchid location as long as he thinks he's Sloane. So they'll have to shock him out of it by introducing a painful memory that'll loosen his moorings, so to speak. So Sloane will have to undergo regression hypnotherapy in order to conjure up a painful memory, which will then be uploaded to Sloane Clone and knock him into reality. Marshall wants to run some more tests before they try this, but Sloane wants to do it right now. "Fine," grits Jack. "Where do we begin?" "Jacquelyn," says Sloane, confidently. "Who's Jacquelyn?" asks Jack. "She's the daughter I named after you, of course," says Sloane. Oh, okay. He doesn't. He starts to tell them, but Marshall cuts him off, saying that he has to relive the memory when he's under hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy Room of Painful Memories. Marshall sets Sloane up in the hypno chair. Sloane says he'll need some help accessing the memories. Marshall says that Jack will be talking to him through the earbuds and administer certain verbal cues to bring his mind to the right place. Marshall leaves. Nadia's standing there, looking down on her father with disgust. She finally leaves, and we go to yet another break. Two hours into this recap, people. And I've got another hour to go. KILL ME.
Jack leads Arvin back into his memories. Sloane's fighting the hypnosis, but finally Jack gets him back into the past. Sloane's walking through a park with a fountain. Then he's walking up to a bench where Amy Irving, Auntie Em, is sitting. Aw. Auntie Em. I missed her! And she looks gorgeous. Arvin takes a seat and says that he thought they could take the boat out before it gets too cold, perhaps go to Bellagio. Ahhhh. Bellagio. I wish I were there right now. And that some little fairies would come in and magically pack my apartment before I get back. I'd also like to do naughty things to several of the Wilson brothers, but that's never gonna happen either, so I'd better just nip these fantasies in the bud, huh?
