Gary follows a bright data stream to a greenhouse somewhere, where a large goon frisks him before letting him through to see... Anna. Remember, the leader of Red Flag who Gary made friends with weeks ago, and with whom he's apparently been corresponding ever since? She's using a handheld device to speak to him, and they have a happy little reunion before she gets down to business. After taking his hand in a friendly way, even though most people aren't allowed to touch him at all, she wants to know where Gary found a quote he sent her about society's acceptance being a prison disguised as a palace. Sounds like part of a manifesto, and Gary confirms that it was Stanton Parish, who he assumes is Anna's favorite writer, given their similar styles. Anna warns Gary to stay away from Stanton Parish, and Gary doesn't fail to notice her use of the present tense. Looking sad, Anna says it's time for Gary to go, and the goon drags him away protesting.
At night, Rosen has Rachel busy examining the fake ruby necklace while he has another conversation with Danielle. He wants to move on from their troubled past, claiming he's changed, but she says he hasn't changed much in 15 years, other than having a whole team of people like her to "play with." Rosen's starting to get cranky, but she remembers how Rosen would send her to bring Mrs. Rosen a cup of tea and stroke her arm to make her feel better. "Empathic contagion, isn't that what you call it?" Rosen claims he didn't know about her ability at the time, but Danielle says it went on until she was 12, and Rosen figured it out when she was 9. I'm sure Agent Sullivan would appreciate this use of Rosen's time.
Bill catches up with a bummed-out Rosen in the hallway and says he and Gary are onto something. They sit him down and make him listen, unwillingly, as Gary tells the long story about Stanton Parish and Anna, as well as the new information that Stanton Parish worked on the Russian MK Ultra program as well. Gary even has a photo of him doing it. As well as a whole collection of photos of the same man with the same face, going all the way back to the Civil War. So Stanton Parish is Nicolas Cage? Gary adds that Parish seems to be the only person Anna is scared of, and he shows Rosen Stanton's manifesto, A Call for Change, the Red Flag playbook, pulled from the MK Ultra files the bad guys tried to erase last week. Rosen, suddenly convinced, tacks Parish's photo to the Red Flag org chart board above Anna and recites that quote from The Who that I'm always using for the titles of The Office weecaps: "Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss." It's a bit more literal this time.
