At some point, though, the rising thunder in that little room gets to be too much for both of them and Barnabus grabs Lacy and starts strangling her and yelling crazy paranoid shit about Clarice and how she's a double agent or a mole or something and that she's working against him and all that usual mess. Lacy, once again keeping her cool pretty well, tells him not to be an idiot, think about the fact that she's done everything he ever told her to do, that she's offended by any and all accusations of disloyalty, etc. He asks her like sixteen times to promise him her loyalty, at just the most inopportune time for such a request, and she rewords it very awesomely: "I am committed to God."
Barney's going to end up making Lacy the best terrorist of all, just by showing her what not to do. He's like Goofus, and she'll be Gallant. (Which makes Clarice? The sexy Gray Spy one in their dorky made up world of Spy vs. Spy vs. Spy.) "Goofus always questions his child-soldiers' loyalty. Gallant knows they're doing the best they can with the information given." "Goofus sleeps with underage teens and sometimes strangles them on a bad day. Gallant knows that a terrorist cell commander's life is fraught with challenges and tiny upsets, and that a little Xanax goes a long way."
9:15 AM: Daniel's being driven somewhere -- not sure where, but it's near the "Harbour" because sometimes on this show things are spelled Canadian -- when Cornell's wife HELEN shows up and starts beating on his window, like they always do on this show. Presumably this crazy behavior makes him miss his wife even more -- and, subtly, Helen screams a same thing that Amanda said to him this one time -- so he has a bunch of flashbacks to stuff from before, the beginning of the show, conversations from five minutes ago, the entire finale, and finally what it was like when he went to see his wife in the hospital after she got so busy smoking cigarettes -- only sometimes lit, which is either a mistake or just how crazy she is -- to really notice that she didn't care if he came or not.
Right out the gate Amanda's like, "Okay, just to clarify: You did have those dudes killed so you could get that computer chip. Yes?" Yes. But: "That's not fair!" Hmm? Not fair, because how was he supposed to know that when you hire hired killers they kill the people you hired them to kill. "It's like our shitty daughter. You knew you were a terrible mother and that she was a crazed supergenius..." Daniel realizes he's about to fuck up worse than the time he forgot their anniversary and she jumped off a bridge, but she tells him to bring the analogy home.
