After the ads, Bill is the first to regain consciousness, and he carries Rachel to safety next to Gary. He then encounters Nina trying to help move Cameron, who looks to be bleeding out. Bill helps him to his feet and tells Nina to get him to the blast door while he finds Rosen.
An external shot of the building makes it look like the whole building is shimmering, as though it's going to disappear from the Alphas universe entirely and wind up on Fringe instead. Inside, Kern has gone to confront the Griffin, and he's so pissed at her that waves of sonic power are blowing back her ponytail and making her bleed from the ears, like the dark side of an old Memorex ad. He wants to know who hired her, but she's not talking even now. Bill shows up in the shaking hallway outside, and Kern sends him sprawling with another sonic blast. Bill fights it, hanging onto the shaking window frame, and as Griffin rips free of the duct tape holding her to her chair, Kern takes just enough time to smash her against the wall. His more immediate problem is Bill, whose ability has finally kicked in, allowing him to...uh, push down the shattered window frame and stand there staring at Kern all, "How you like my dick now?" Kern tells him, "It's too late," which is all he says before Griffin appears out of nowhere (as she does) and sinks a shard of glass into Kern's neck. "So much for my bonus," she sighs as Kern collapses to the floor and the place quits vibrating. She suggests Bill go freelance, and when he says that'll never happen, she says she owes him one, "and I hate owing people." By way of paying him back, she says, "Stanton Parish." Bill asks what that is, and she says, "You better find out." And vanishes. Like, literally. Bill didn't even get to say "see you."
The next morning, they're trying to straighten the place back up. You know, having Bill do his usual vending-machine wrangling while they ignore the great slabs of drywall that were shaken loose last night, and God only knows what kind of irreparable structural damage. The whole place should probably be condemned. Instead, Bill talks to Rosen about the context-free clue Stanton Parish, not knowing if it's a place, or a person, or a county in Louisiana where Harry Dean Stanton is desperately trying to get a Big Love/True Blood crossover series off the ground. Gary is all "I told you so" about the Dr. Evil stuff, and Bill just teases Gary about his idea for fighting Alphas from Gary's bedroom. Gary claims to be annoyed by the return of this version of Bill. "You're the old Bill again," he says. "You're damn right I am," Bill says, cracking open a stray soda. I don't know, he still seems less pissy, but that's okay.
