We switch to San Francisco, two days earlier. Yeah, the "XX days/hours earlier" device is my least favorite and the most overused on this show, but this is the final season, so I suppose I can let it pass, you know? Anyway, Peyton's hanging out at a noodle stand left over from the set of Blade Runner. She has her eye on a door in the distance, and the second some guy exits the door, Peyton leaves the noodle stand and runs after him. She tails him for a bit and finally lunges at him and blabbles some story at him about how she's supposed to meet friends in the Mission District but she can't find a cab because nobody here speaks English because apparently, in San Francisco's Chinatown, it's customary for NO ONE to be speak the language of the country in which they now live.
Peyton asks him what time it is and before he can tell her, she stabs him in the gut and steals his watch. She's a naughty little minx, isn't she? She puts the watch on her own wrist and enters the building the dead man just left. She heads down a hallway and accesses a secret panel that opens the red door at the end of the hall. Peyton enters the room behind the door and there's a guy across the way, sitting at a computer. He doesn't turn around, so he thinks Peyton is the agent she just killed. She accesses the dead guy's computer, does a search for "Agent Michael Vaughn," finds the server she's looking for, and slinks off to nab it. Meanwhile, the other agent is finally curious as to why his agent buddy is being so silent, so he heads off to follow Peyton.
She quickly locates the server with Vaughn's data on it and goes to work removing the outer panel so she can get at the data inside. Soon-To-Be-Dead Agent comes up just as Peyton's finished accessing the panel, but she's nowhere to be found. SDA notices something amiss at the server and he moves over to check it out, but Peyton comes up behind him and strangles him with a wire. She grabs the data she wants and makes tracks. Outside, Kelly gets on the phone and asks to speak to "The Technician." "This is he," says Desantis. "Were you able to retrieve Agent Vaughn's files?" Peyton says that she got the files and that she'll run the analysis and get back to him with the results. Desantis says he'll let their benefactors know the good news. Dead Agent #1 has been discovered by the noodle lady, and there's a ruckus starting up. "What's all that noise?" asks Desantis. "You know how it is," says Peyton. "Rough neighborhood." Heh. Especially for agents just trying to be nice to pretty young assassins.
