Instead, Shadowy says that Jaime is being kept against her will only until she figures out they can't keep her here if she doesn't want to stay. Because of, you know, the bionics. "You're talking about killing a human," P.Dorkus says. "I'm talking about killing a wolf," says Shadowy. So...he wants to kill Jaime, I guess. As he's leaving (Fake-Out Room Exit #2), Shadowy stops right in front of P.Dorkus and says that what scares him about P.Dorkus is his dad: "He seemed normal, too." I love the idea of these two particular dudes getting up in each other's faces, since Shadowy apparently trains killer robot soldiers in hand-fighting, and P.Dorkus is...a college professor. That should be a close one if it goes to combat. "If I'm anything like my father, you just made a big mistake," P.Dorkus says. Their contest to see who can actually stomp out of the room and leave the other one standing there ends when P.Dorkus finally stomps out of the room. (Actual Room Exit.)
Jaime is still in the hospital room, but she's being told she's being taken to rehab. Awesomely, Jaime tells the nurse (it appears) that she (Jaime) isn't the one doing secret experiments on people. "You rehabilitate yourself!" she yells. Yeeeaaaaah, YOU'RE out of order! This whole COURTROOM'S out of order! The nurse is all, "Whatever, Chipsy McNuts-N-Bolts," and leaves. When she's gone, Jaime gets out of bed and walks over to the big mirror, which she has correctly deduced is two-way. Miguel is watching her from the other side. She walks up close to the mirror. She looks into it with heavy-lidded eyes. "Boo," she says darkly. Right, so that's her moment of showing off how scary she is? Because she figured out that it's a two-way mirror? Congratulations; they turned you into a robot, sister, so I think they still have the upper hand. Miguel smiles slightly, impressed with her spunk. I like a spunky killing machine myself.
Jaime is sketching in an interrogation room of sorts when she's joined by Third Watch. "I'm Ruth," Third Watch says (thank goodness), and Jaime responds, "I'm pissed." She is so the picture of what a seventh-grader thinks a bad-ass is. "Good," Ruth says. "We're here to talk about our feelings." When Jaime's like, "How do you feel about me being kept here against my will?" Ruth replies that she was "speaking editorially," and they're actually going to talk about Jaime's feelings. "Editorially"? I think she means "euphemistically," kind of, but she certainly doesn't mean "editorially." There is some weak banter about feelings, and Ruth says "feelings are what got us here in the first place." They are? Feelings of having your head crushed by a truck, maybe. Ruth mentions that Jaime is sketching, so Jaime stops, of course. Because she's a rebel, and just when you think she's sketching, she totally turns the tables and she stops sketching completely. As Ruth tries to start some questioning, Jaime mentions her sister, and Ruth assures her that Becca's with the landlady and thinks Jaime's gone skiing in Vail. Ruth explains how she'll tell Becca she went skiing with P.Dorkus, who hurt his arm by skiing into a tree. Actually...that part sounds pretty believable. It will help sell that one if Becca has met P.Dorkus. When Jaime wonders whether this means she's going home, Ruth tells her there is a Jaime Goes Home plan, as well as a Jaime Doesn't Go Home plan. With that, Ruth starts in on the psych testing.
