Bond is outside in a busy plaza looking for his contact while Casey and Sarah hang back, watching. Casey can't spot Fulcrum because everyone looks the same. It's all businessmen in suits with briefcases. Then someone gets out of a car and Bond tells Sarah and Casey they're on. The guy walks up and asks Bond for the chip. Bond asks him for the playback device. At the Buy More, Chuck gives himself a pep talk as he hooks the chip up to a bunch of cords. The lady with the fake baby from the elevator is in a car at the meet scene, when the guy next to her tells her that someone in Burbank just tripped the homing device on the chip, so Bond clearly doesn't have it. She tells someone to kill him. Sarah sees someone pull a gun, but Casey tells her to hold her position since they're not authorized to be here. She goes in anyway, and she and Bond end up captured. Casey watches, and hears someone say they almost fooled them until someone tried to access the real chip. Casey grumbles, "Bartowski..."
At the Buy More, Chuck gets the chip to work, and sees the footage of himself hooked up to the Clockwork Orange machine two weeks ago. Just then a bunch of people in suits walk toward him. One is the baby carriage, "kill him" lady. He flashes on her with his red Intersect, so he smashes the chip quickly. Jeff and Lester are hiding behind some display cases, watching it all. They think it's the cops, because one of the models must have actually called. They blame each other. The lady and her henchmen surround Chuck, and Jeffster wants Bartowski to lock it down. They flee. The bad lady sees Chuck's smashed the chip and tells him that was dumb. She wonders why everyone insists on doing things the hard way. He says he doesn't, but asks what the hard way is.
Flash to a warehouse, where Chuck's whining about the pain in his wrists and everywhere else. He, Sarah, and Bond are tied up in such a way that they're sort of hanging by their arms. Bond says this is going to get ugly and wonders what Chuck's pain tolerance is. Sarah says it's about a 1 out of 10. He's insulted, and says he's at least an 8. She tells him the torture hasn't started yet, and he says if this is the pre-torture, she can definitely put him down as a 1.
Chuck tells Sarah he saw what was on the chip, and she says, "What?!" Chuck looks at Bond, who says sorry, but he can't really plug his ears right now. Sarah tells him it's okay, and he tells her it's him on the chip. She tells him that whatever Fulcrum does, he cannot tell them, but he says he can't handle torture and points to the syringes on a nearby table: "You know how I feel about needles." Bond says not to worry about torture, because he'll incite them and get them to kill him quick. Sarah says they just need to hold on until Casey gets here, so if he can't withstand the torture, he should make himself pass out by scaring himself. He thinks that should be easy enough. In walks the Hot Bad Lady, who is glad they're chatty (um, couldn't she have just been listening to all of that?). She says the identity of the Intersect is on that chip, and asks who's going to tell her who it is. She wields a machete in front of Chuck.
