Syd remarks that Isabelle hasn't giggled before and that this is a first for her. A first that she missed. Jack assures her that there will be many firsts. Syd knows this, but she still wonders if she'll be off scaling an eighty-story building when Isabelle takes her first steps. Ah, the perils of a working spy mommy. Jack says that he'll notify Dix and Vaughn about Rome and there's a knock at the door, so Syd has to go. It's Peyton, asking if she's ready to go. They head out.
Bunker of Dead Daddy Research. Vaughn's busy scanning documents when Dixon enters. After a highly emotional exchange of "heys," Dixon says, "You're shorter than I remember." Hee. They both laugh and Dix asks if all this stuff is about Prophet Five and Vaughn says it's all about mysterious deaths and car bombings and anyone who ever died investigating P5. "But they didn't get you," says Dixon. "No," says Vaughn. "But they might have, if it hadn't been for Jack." And here comes the SparkNotes version of "The Day Vaughn Died But Really Didn't."

Dix asks how Jack managed it and Vaughn says, "Sodium morphate. It slowed down my body functions to the point that they mimicked death. Apparently, I spent four hours in a drawer at the morgue, waiting for Jack's contact to meet me to administer the antidote. Then a couple days of traveling before I made it to Nepalhutaniskatmandu.

"Well," says Dix, "unless he manufactured a very elaborate scheme to postpone your wedding to his daughter." Heh. Dix hands Vaughn a picture of Isabelle. "Fortunately, she looks more like her mother," quips Dix. He's on FIRE with the quips tonight! Vaughn says she does and thanks Dixon. Vaughn's cell rings and it's Jack. He's sending a team to box everything up and Dix and Vaughn are heading to Rome to back Sydney up.
