We see Cam watching her and almost spilling his drink all over the best assets of some pissed-off woman. Ha ha! I welcome the comic relief Cam provides as the Birds search for the vicious killer, whomever it might be.
Anyway, Helena introduces Gibson (whose last name is "Kafka") to Jack and says, "He's my " and then pauses for about five hours as Barbara interrupts to tell her she's decrypted the Delta list, and Helena says " my " again and pauses for another ten hours as Barbara tells her Jack isn't on the list and therefore not the killer, but Gibson has already jumped in so Helena doesn't look completely insane, introducing himself as her boyfriend and informing Jack that he and Helena love each other. Helena says that Gibson is in fact her delusional friend who was just about to get Helena a drink. A stuttering Gibson is dispatched to the bar as Barbara says she's going to check the list for any of Helena's other classmates. Time for Jack and Helena to make awkward small talk. Jack says he's in the "ad game" now, as he sort of fell into it after college. Yeah. LAST YEAR. Don't get me started. But Jack apparently does not want to talk about himself; he just wants to find out Helena's story. She tells him she's a bartender. Jack says there has to be more than that. "I can tell there must be another side to you," he says, whatever that means. "I'm a really good bartender," says Helena. Barbara checks in to let her know that no one on either list matches up, so Helena reluctantly ditches Jack to do a little more searching, saying they'll do some catching up later. Walking away, Helena herself sees the wall shimmer: "What the hell was that?" Someone owes Gibson an apology!
Later, describing it to Barbara, Helena says that it was like the background became three-dimensional. Barbara floats the possibility of a transparent metahuman, but Gibson nixes that, saying that there's one such metahuman in Akron, so this has to be different. He then suggests that it might be an invisible guy, and if he could explain to me the difference between an invisible guy and a transparent guy, I'd appreciate it. Then he wonders if maybe this meta is able to camouflage his skin to blend into the background -- that would account for the 3-D background effect, as well as the shimmer when the guy moves. Then Gibson and Barbara start babbling about how, due to "metaphysiology," the meta with that power would display side effects in his human form. Yeah, it's a big Whatever Explanation. Guess what the side effects are? Impaired motor control and poor balance. "So he'd be a klutz," says Helena. Yep, says Barbara. "I know who he is, and I know exactly who he's going to kill next!" she says, and walks off, leaving Barbara and Gibson just standing there looking at each other, like, maybe you want to share your info with the rest of the team, Helena?
