Apple Store. Later that day, Sloane uses his computer to track down Vak and watches Syd waddle over and talk to Marshall, and he seems to be very regretful about what he's doing. But obviously, he doesn't have a choice, because if he mucks up his deal with Gordo, he'll go back to prison and Nadia (who?) will most likely die. After downloading Vak's info onto the flash drive Gordo gave him, Sloane attends a meeting in the Conference Room of Endless Expositions. Jack states that Sloane, in his position of limited capacity, was tasked with going over Rachel's debriefing. Sloane says that while he went through it, there was only one name that he recognized immediately: Janos Vak.
Vak specializes in targeting software that he calls "lasso technology," and Syd and Marshall jointly pipe up that this software would allow an incoming missile to be electronically intercepted and redirected, essentially "lassoing" it. Sloane says that based on Rachel's statement, Gordo's been trying to locate Vak for the past six months. Jack says that they're going to try to get to Vak first and then use him as bait for Gordo. Sloane brings up that Vak has partnered with an Algerian arms dealer in the past and that they should try to squeeze him for Vak's location. "The Algerian underworld is notoriously hard to penetrate," says Jack. "I think I know someone who can do it," says Syd. "Renée Rienne," says Jack. Who? Oh, you mean Élodie. Got it. Jack approves this course of action and tells Syd to get on the horn and see if Élodie can get a lead on Vak.
Meeting adjourned, Sloane corners Syd over by her desk and thanks her for the letter of recommendation she wrote for him. He then confesses that every day, he goes to the hospital, talks to Nadia's doctors, but can't set foot in her room. Ron Rifkin does this awesome lip quiver thing that is just barely noticeable, but that indicates just how upset Sloane is about his inability to go to his daughter's bedside. "I can't stand to see her hooked up to all those machines," he says, "knowing that it's my fault she's there." Syd seems genuinely touched by Sloane's confession, and she says that she knows he'll do everything in his power to find a cure for Nadia. "Yes, I will," says Sloane, the tone of his voice indicating that he will, indeed, do absolutely anything to save his daughter, even if that "anything" involves killing a bunch of Apple Store employees. What? You totally know he would. The man has no soul.
