During the ads, Gary's has gotten on the phone to Uncle Alan, who was oblivious to his exit. At HQ, things have calmed down and Rachel (who, it turns out, can conveniently shut down her senses when she needs to and thus is not dead) is looking over the stun device Skylar left behind, built entirely out of crap she scavenged from the office in less than ten minutes. Maybe next time they should stash her on the roof instead of in a room full of electronics. Nina takes Skylar's side, saying she doesn't blame her for bailing, given how guys with guns are after her. Rosen says it's not up to them any more, which is when Nina realizes Skylar was right: "We're flunkies." Just now getting the memo?
Gary's not driving after all, but he hails a cab to Queens, with very specific instructions for the driver to avoid streets beginning with certain letters and numbers. That must put a crimp in the team's field missions. I just hope he has cash.
Cley is back at Alpha HQ, giving Rosen an update: Skylar had been both working for the NSA and sending unbreakable coded messages to someone named Z. He suspects Skylar may have been spying for some other country, or worse -- given the complexity of the code she was using -- Red Flag. And he doesn't seem too interested in anything Rosen might have to say to try to calm him down. Okay, good talk!
Nina gets home, and who should be there but Skylar, busy with bits of Nina's electronics scattered all over the kitchen table. Nina thinks Skylar's just there to raid her apartment for materials. "Not exactly," Skylar says.
Back at HQ, Rachel is looking at the electronic bee Skylar left behind and wondering where it's transmitting its signal. Gary would come in handy, but obviously he's not in. Bill enters with the news that a car that was hotwired nearby after Skylar's escape just turned up outside Nina's apartment. That's some pretty speedy detective work and would be even more impressive if we viewers didn't already know where Skylar went.
She's not there any more, though. Nina's driving Skylar somewhere and, after a short argument, even agrees to ditch her phone so they don't get traced and nabbed. Nina wonders what's next. All Skylar will say is they're going "off the map," but first they have to kill Bob. Nina looks shocked, as though it's not immediately obvious that by the way Skylar is referring to him that Bob isn't a human. Not that Skylar cares much about humans anyway.
They make it to an "NSA Research Facility" in Cheshire Connecticut, and by this time, Nina seems to be on board with killing Bob, who apparently is the reason they keep finding Skylar. Skylar gets them through the automated security systems having, of course, designed them. But soon they're stopped by a uniformed security guard who's aiming a gun at them. "You ladies lost?" he asks, not sounding as helpful as he looks. I think we just found out why Skylar brought Nina along.
