Casey and Sarah are grilling Frost on Chuck's whereabouts, but she isn't saying a word until she talks to her daughter. They won't let her, and she assures them Chuck's safe if he's with her handler. She also tells Sarah that maybe Chuck's gone because of their fight. Sarah's clearly annoyed she knows about it, too. Morgan comes in then, irking Casey until Frost recognizes and warms up to Morgan, whom she recognizes from when he was nine. He promises her she can see Ellie if she tells them what she knows about Chuck's whereabouts. He says, "You can trust me, Mrs. B," so she says she'll tell them if they take her to see Ellie.
Tuttle gathers parachutes so they can escape the plane. After a quick joke about there being only one parachute, Tuttle gets two of them and they suit up. Tuttle breathes heavily and says he's just excited because this reminds him of that great episode of Alias. He squees like a TWoPer: "I loved that show!" Ana starts to wake up, so they open the plane door and jump, Tuttle first. When we return from a commercial, Chuck wakes up in the back of a sheep truck. Tuttle says Chuck knocked himself unconscious when they landed, but he got them into the back of this truck. He tells Chuck these sheep are going to the lamb chop factory, but he and Chuck are going to L.A. Tuttle wonders why Chuck's so intent on helping Frost. He asks if Chuck's "giving her one." Chuck says he's not; he's very professional. Plus, he has a girlfriend anyway, and they're right in the middle of their first fight. Tuttle says he doesn't want to pry, but Chuck doesn't mind talking about it. He starts in as they pass a "Los Angeles: 123 miles" sign. In other words, Tuttle's getting the full, since-season-one version.
Sarah, Casey and Morgan escort Frost to Ellie's apartment, where she's nervously awaiting. Sarah comes in and then lets Frost in. She apologizes to Ellie that she has to stay, then Ellie offers her mom some lemonade. Frost likes that idea, so they sit down and drink. Frost apologizes that Ellie has to see her in handcuffs. She says things are complicated, but she wanted to see her. Ellie gets nervous and flustered about coasters, so Frost grabs her arm and tells her it's okay. Ellie sighs and fights tears. Her mom tells her she's all grown up, which is weird since she still thinks of a gangly little girl, unsure of how she fits into her own skin. She tells her that Bakula and her used to take Ellie for drives in his burgundy '68 Mustang. Ellie wipes away tears and says she can't believe she forgot: those blue leather seats, which her dad special ordered. Frost says that watching Ellie sleep in between them on those long drives was one of her favorite things. Ellie says she just wants to know what happened, the truth. Frost takes a sip of lemonade and begins: "I guess it all begins with a scientist whose code name was Orion, but whose real name was Stephen Bartowski." They cut silently through Frost talking and talking, with Sarah sitting there listening to it all. Frost tells Ellie she wishes that telling her she did this for Ellie and Chuck made a difference, but she knows it doesn't. Casey interrupts and says he's sorry but they have to go. Ellie and Frost stand and look at each other tearfully. They can't quite hug, but Frost rubs Ellie's hair as she cries. Then Sarah opens the door for Frost to leave.
