During final preparations to head out, Danielle comes to Rosen and says that if it's Red Flag's fault her boyfriend's dead, "I hope you get all of them." Rosen says something rueful about a "rosy future" someone once said he envisioned, and admits that she was right about the tea, and that he tried to use her ability to "save a marriage that I'd already ruined... I just wanted you to hear it." Well, mission accomplished.
Gary is on the phone to his mom, saying he's not coming home tonight because his friends need him and asking her not to cry. She'd probably be crying harder if she could see him half in his bulletproof vest right now. Bill shows up to hurry him along, which reminds Gary to tell his mom about the time Bill pushed him over. "Which was better than taking a bullet. I said don't cry."
Early morning. There's an old brick factory out in the country, with a suspicious number of large vehicles parked outside, like it's a daytime rave for soccer moms. Rachel's hidden behind the tall grass on the hill overlooking the building, watching as Anna's bodyguard gets out of an arriving car and looks around before opening the door to reveal Anna inside. Rachel announces to the team (Alphas and SWAT guys alike) that counting Anna and her two goons, that makes about 30 Red Flaggers. As Anna is carried toward the building, because a person who understands every language in the world with the resources of a nationwide organization at her command can't swing a wheelchair, Gary offers to go down and get them all to surrender, using his standard tactic of wearing people down. But Rosen insists he has to do as he's told. And Gary doesn't even take any wearing down on that.
Cameron and Nina are making some serious pre-battle banter, which Nina cuts off before the juju can get any worse. Rachel reports that Parish hasn't shown up yet, and a dozen or so other Red Flag leaders are also no-shows. Sounds like a set-up to me. Rachel's eavesdropping from up here on the unhappy Red Flaggers inside, but they're not arguing about the poor turnout; they're talking about going public.
Sullivan is leading her team down the hill when Rosen runs up to tell her to hold off. "Put some socks on, Lee, your feet are getting cold," she snarks. Put some shorts on, Sullivan, you look like an asshole. Rosen says it's just a little too convenient how they were led to his daughter (and almost but not quite killed in the process), and allowed to decode a message that would lead them right here. So is he saying it's a trap? Yes, for the members of Red Flag inside the building, who Parish wants shut up -- and Rosen thinks he's using the Alphas and the strike team to do it. Sullivan, shocked at the idea that Red Flag might publicize the existence of Alphas (which I guess has been a big secret all along) is only too happy to do exactly what Parish wants, though, so it's yet another great ineffectual moment for Lee Rosen.
