In the house, Gary's back brushing his teeth and blowing his mom off some more, now saying he can take care of himself. Suddenly he gets a message on the spectrum in Anna's computer voice, saying, "I'm sorry, Gary. I hope you are still my friend." Gary's smile as he continues brushing seems to be his answer.
At HQ, Sullivan shows Rosen a new video from Black Flag, this one taking responsibility for the bombing in the name of "true neurodiversity." Of course the robotic voice has been analyzed as another one of Anna's. Rosen remembers Cameron warning him, and blames himself for underestimating Anna. He also seems to get what she was trying to do, blah blah blah Magneto-cakes. As for Red Flag, Rosen tells Sullivan that he and Wilson thought it was only a loose group of fifty to a hundred people. But then he shows Sullivan what Gary must have e-mailed him: an animation of the messages that flooded Gary's brain earlier, originating from a thickening constellation of red dots all over a map of the US. "This is more than a criminal enterprise," Rosen says. "This is a movement."
Whatever, this show's a movement. And not the kind he means.
