Meanwhile, Carrie's grown suspicious because Marshall hasn't returned from Mitchell's room yet. She goes to check on them, and the window in Mitchell's room is open. We switch to Rachel again; she enters with two cups of coffee and no Getty anywhere in sight. There's a knock at the door and she opens it, only to find Sark outside. "It's been awhile, hasn't it?" he smarms at her. Before she can run, he slaps a hand over her mouth and we go to commercial.
When we return, Marshall's strapped to a chair in some abandoned office somewhere with a bag over his head. Peyton rips it off and Marshall's confronted with Evil Sloane. Sloane tells Marshall that Rambaldi described an underground cavern and that it had a specific stone structure inside. "I want you to find that cavern for me," says Sloane. He wants Marshall to hack into the government's ground-penetrating satellite network. "You're…tasking me?" says Marshall incredulously. Heh. Marshall's all, uh, in case you don't remember, you're not my boss anymore, SHORTY. "This is not a request," says Sloane. "I will not help you," says Marshall. Sloane glances at Peyton. "Let me know when you persuade him," he says. Peyton moves to Marshall and grabs a large pair of thumb-cutters and…well, uses them to cut off Marshall's thumb. At least, that's what it looks like to me. Put that thing on ice, Peyton! They can use it later!
We switch to Carrie and Sydney, hugging it out over Marshall's disappearance. Carrie's confused as to why a game designer would be kidnapped. Jack and Syd share a glance, and Syd spills the beans about Marshall's real job. Getty calls Jack and tells him that Rachel's missing too. Guess you shouldn't have left so soon, huh, Getty? Carrie's pissed that Marshall lied to her, but Syd explains that he had no choice. Carrie wants to go with them back to APO because she needs something to do and she can help out on the tech side. Jack agrees, and they all head to the Apple Store.
Dungeons and Dandies. Sark is performing his version of torture on Rachel. Fortunately for her, his version involves talking about all the sex they had and looking generally dapper and handsome. He sticks sensors to her chest and right temple as she glares at him. After some not-so-witty repartee, Sark hits a switch and Rachel's body is juiced with electricity.
Apple Store. Dix and Jack are discussing the kidnappings and Dix declares that it was most certainly Sloane. What they don't know is why he did it. Jack thinks Sloane needs something from Marshall and Rachel. "You were right about him," says Jack. "After Irina was extracted and I was taken into custody, I had to designate a guardian for Sydney. I chose Sloane. In spite of everything he's done, I believed some part of him was still a friend. I once trusted him with my daughter. Clearly, I was wrong." Yeah, you sure as hell were, buddy. But that's okay. We love you anyway.
