Jonas tells her that if she's on board, she needs to meet her supervisor -- although actually, he thinks they've "already met"! Dun-dun! Jaime turns and sees Antonio stroll into the room, calmly greeting her by name. She looks half-annoyed, half-amused. That Isaiah Washington -- you can't keep him down.
When we come back from commercials, Jaime is having her bionic ear noodled with, and I don't mean that in a dirty way. She tells the ear guy that she was trying to "get in there with a Q-tip" (heh), and he's horrified at the idea that she messed up "his" ear with a Q-tip. She thinks maybe it's her ear now. It took the TWoP staff up in the bullpen here a long time to figure out who's playing the ear guy, and we (uncharacteristically) gave up and looked it up on IMDb -- turns out we struggled because he's completely out of context when he's standing and not bearded -- it's Herc, Jason's rehab pal from Friday Night Lights. Herc fusses with some settings, but Jaime continues to insist that her ear doesn't sound right. Or his ear. Or whatever. Ultimately, he tells her something's probably just loose. Or it's a brain aneurysm. Don't tease me, Herc. She accuses him of actually not knowing a damn thing, and he offers to try one more thing. He puts his head up next to hers so that their ears are touching, and then he whacks her on the head. It's kind of obvious, but the idea of whapping a bionic ear like you would a bum TV still strikes me as a little funny. She has to admit: it worked. He grins and tells her she can always bring him Krispy Kremes as a thank-you. Or booze. Or "a nice hug." "That ain't gonna happen," she says. He grins at her. Life! The show has a breath of life! More of the ear guy! More, more!
Just then, Antonio walks in and claims Jaime for training, after confirming with the ear guy ("Nathan") that she's ready. As she and Antonio walk down a long hall, they discuss their first meeting -- how he doesn't really own a Jack Russell, but he knew she did once, so he borrowed one. She asks why he had this big discussion with her at the bookstore, and he says he wanted to know if she was "compromised." He says that there are other covert agencies out there, and he needed to know if she was hooked up with any of them. And...I guess he figured she would tell him if she was? He tells her he discovered that she's smart and honest, but not sure who she is. I'll tell you one thing about who she is: she's still wearing that bad, bad pink lipstick, which I seriously wish they would give up on. Until she does, she's Bad Pink Lipstick Person, through and through. As she walks away, she asks Antonio whether she'll have to "climb up a wall." Antonio says that's up to "Jae."
