Later, Jaime is in an alley alone, all lit with red, when she suddenly senses that she's being watched and/or followed. Far down the alley, a guy emerges from a building, and her eye gives her a kind of picture-in-picture where she gets a close-up in addition to the long view. He walks toward her, all, "You need somethin'?" When he gets near (which is possible because she stands there instead of running away like a normal person would do), he flicks open a knife. Ooh, big mistake, Bald And Menacing. Jaime takes the knife away and commits a series of acts of bionic-fu that result in her getting the guy flat on his back with his own knife to his neck. "Please," he begs. She walks away from him, dropping the knife point-down so that it sticks straight up with the point...stuck in the asphalt? Hey, effects geniuses: not likely. You can't really stab pavement. Idiots. Jaime runs off.
We rejoin Jaime as she storms down a city street, unaware that Shadowy is watching her from a car. P.Dorkus answers his door and finds Jaime there, demanding to know what he put in her head. She tells him she just got through almost killing someone, and she's a trifle concerned about what might have caused that to happen. P.Dorkus says that her cerebral cortex has been outfitted with some microchips his father developed "for the military" for the benefit of Gulf War amputees. "You made me into a soldier!" she says in despair, and he admits that one could say she's "hard-wired for highly specialized warfare," but baby, don't hate! You know you're special! I'm not like all the others! I hard-wired you for highly specialized warfare because I love you! He assures Jaime that she could be just fine "with the proper training," and he adds that he only did it because he "couldn't bear to lose" her. He puts his academic's mitts on her big robot face, and they hug.
