Max sits on the Space Needle, brooding. She voices over that when she first got to Seattle, it felt like home, and she never thought things would get so screwed up. She thinks that things would be just as bad if she had gone somewhere else, but maybe not.
In San Francisco, a girl who looks just like Max (except with wavy hair) walks into an apartment. It's not clear yet whether this is really happening, or if it's Max's dream about what would have happened if she went somewhere else. Max Doppelganger walks in the door and calls out that she's home. A little kid walks up and says that he got a good grade on his spelling test. Max Doppelganger asks if he showed Dad yet, and the father walks up and hugs Max Doppelganger and tells the kid to get cleaned up for dinner. Later, Max Doppelganger reads a book as her husband walks in, having just put the kid to bed. They talk about their upcoming weekend getaway. Just then, a bunch of goons bust into the apartment. Max Doppelganger tosses one of them aside, but another one hits her with a stun gun. Once the husband has been dragged off, White walks into the room and says that Max Doppelganger is a long way from her usual haunts. Max Doppelganger doesn't know what White means. White asks, "Did you think you could hide from me, 452?" Max Doppelganger says that her designation is 453. White checks her bar code, which he can apparently read just by looking at it, then walks away in disgust, saying that Max Doppelganger is a clone.
