Which, obviously if she had there would be no Lacy at all, even a pretend messiah one, so shut up Zoë, but she's working with a generative algorithm. She's an infant, and anything that happens around an infant goes in the hopper and eventually you're a person, so you can't blame her for working the one Lacy angle that's gotten positive reinforcement. Of course, Lacy could care less, and returns the serve: "Original Zoë wanted me to get on that train. Not you. I have never let you down." For a moment you see the Proud Mama side of Lacy, how all three of them delighted in Twopointoë when she was just a baby messiah, and remember that Zoë was an AI trainer, which feels somewhere between dog training and parenting. Caring for Zoë is as much about Zoë's memory as it is about finishing the job she started: Taking care of our Zoë, helping her become what she is. And she's never let her down.
Tad's getting yanked around by his boss at the grocery store when they spot a mysterious smoking bummer in a fedora lurking around, so the boss tells him to get the guy to frak off. Good instincts. Tad doesn't recognize the slouchy awfulness of Joe right away, so by the time he gets over there to show him the entrance, he's too close to Joe's grabby snatchy hands. Joe gets all in his crazy face screaming about guess what, and Tad's like, "Um, this shit is creepy, your dead daughter doesn't exist, the Matrix is haunted, I'm trying to cut back on otaku sad-sackin' and I don't need this ghost in the shell shit right now." (Which is still stupid, because they told him five times her ass was dead but he only figured it out when Joe told him the sixth time that she was dead, but whatever gets you there.)
Joe picks Tad up by his weird face and shakes him like an Alsatian and tells Tad to get over his existential terror because clearly Tamara is not dead, i.e., whatever Tammy is in the Matrix is de facto Tammy now. (So basically he agrees with Clarice's version of apotheosis and doesn't even know it yet. Which, can you even imagine those two bastards in a room together? It would turn into that play Bug, like, instantly.) Tad continues to try to get away, but the list of people who have successfully evaded Joe's obsessive whining is a very short list. Just give in now. They jack in.
While Amanda has more hallway memories and tries to find her invisible brother in her camera phone pictures, and lambastes herself for not being a skilled enough photographer to capture imaginary people -- subtle nod here to the idea of plastic surgeon as frustrated artist, which makes so much sense that every plastics guy on every show is presented that way, as an artist in flesh who chose money -- Tad (Heracles now, shazam) drags Joe, or vice versa, through the Yesod level with all the pipes, and Joe acts cantankerous and old some more so Heracles can be hilariously teen-annoyed and we can explain the Matrix and New Cap City again: You die there you can't go back, etc. Specifically a neat analogy that will come into play later about the similarities between genetic and computer code as relates to the game.
