These two idiots just start smiling at each other like everything is perfect, and of course it all comes crashing down moments later when Monsignor Howard shows up with a couple of enforcer nuns. They're here to take baby Thomas to the orphanage, because it won't do for a baby to be raised in a crazy house. That's how you get a Bane! Both Kit and Grace are forcibly pulled aside as the baby is ripped from their arms. Thredson makes sure he's there to witness the moment, then gloat to Kit about the pain of having one's only son torn away, and offer a way to help.
Lana's working her shift in the bakery when Mother Claudia approaches her. At some point in between woozy Jude begging her to help Lana get out and now, Mother Claudia's become quite the zealot to Lana's cause. She tells Lana she's helping her escape, today. Right now. Lana, understandably, is having a hard time trusting someone she doesn't know. Particularly, I would think, someone who promises to spirit her out of Briarcliff. Claudia points out Judy, mindlessly kneading some dough across the room, and explains how Jude confessed what she'd done to Lana and asked her to make it right. "You can't make it right," Lana says and rightly so, but Claudia thinks Lana might be able to by getting out and telling the world about her experiences. She hands Lana her patient file as proof. Lana's incredulous that Claudia would want to see her take Briarcliff down in such a fashion. "I want it pulled down and the earth salted," Claudia assures her. Claudia says there's a cab waiting to take Lana wherever she wants to go, but they must move quickly. Lana takes the time to first cut into a bag of flour, where she's hidden the reel of Thredson's confession. Then, she heads over to Sister Jude and whether Jude understands her or not, Lana pledges to come back for her.
Out in the foyer, Kit and Thredson are bargaining. Kit, whose goodness is his weakness, is clearly willing to give up the tape (i.e. Lana), but is reluctant because once he does, Thredson would have no motivation to help him. Ollie gives his word, though, you guys. HIS WORD! His word as a father who cares about children! While Kit allows himself to be persuaded by Thredson's promises of happy family life, Lana's trying to descend the staircase and be incognito about it. She's changed into her civvies and she's got a babushka on her head, but anyone with a functioning pair of eyes can tell it's her. Head DOWN, lady! We're seeing all this in split-screen, which, like everything else in this show, is ostentatious, unnecessary and pretty cool. Kit finally spots her over Thredson's shoulder, and he has the courtesy to try and maneuver Thredson's attention away from her as she slips by. Kind of the least he could do in the middle of totally selling her out. But out the front door she slips, unnoticed. Thredson catches a glimpse of something out of the corner of his eye, but by the time he follows his hunch, Lana has already descended the font steps (SLOWLY as hell... like, GET OUTTA THERE) and gotten into the taxi. Thredson doesn't see her until she's already in the cab, pressing the telltale reel against the window, accompanied by her defiant middle finger. You lose, Ollie. You lose.
