Back at the Clocktower, Alfred and Barbara give Helena the gears for being too chicken to reveal her not-so-secret identity to Reese. Barbara says that would mean progressing the relationship, and Helena's scared of that, so she ran. "There is no relationship to run from," insists Helena. "I believe that is Miss Barbara's point," says Alfred, and maybe the elderly unmarried butler ought to keep his relationship advice to himself. Helena insists that she's not scared, but she doesn't want Reese on "the Helena Kyle trail," whatever that is supposed to mean. Barbara says that the connection means that Helena will in fact be going to the reunion, and Helena resigns herself to her fate as Dinah walks in and wants to know what's going on, and maybe Dinah could bring herself to hang out with the group a little more since she's always doing this -- she's forever walking in on the tail end of things and needing to be filled in. Barbara tells her they're working tonight, and Dinah's gleeful about the fact that Helena's going to the reunion. And it dawns on Helena that there's another connection between the victims: herself. Both guys were at the Dark Horse, both hit on her, and both "got into it" with Jack Barrett. Barbara's all, speaking of Jack, the neck snap that killed both victims is a lethal fighting technique used by Delta Force, and Jack Barrett served in the armed forces! Dun dun dun! Barbara doesn't know if Jack was Delta, though, because the records are classified and it will take some time to break the encryption. So they'll need someone to hit on Helena, as bait for the killer. Alfred adjusts his tie. Keep dreaming, Alfred.
