Jackie peeks out tinily from a door in the Tyler basement, scared to death, still wearing her EarPods. She watches a Cyberman walking away from her, back turned...and another one steps out suddenly as she's watching. Sometimes they're very stompy. She jumps back, but it's spotted her.
Mrs. Moore is a good driver. Rickey stares back through the grille at the Doctor's power cell, asking, "What was that thing?" If it's possible, or even makes sense, I hate the way Rickey talks even more than the way Mickey talks. The Doctor calls the battery a "little bit of technology" from his "home," and Mickey Excellently asks (again) if it's dying. Just like about ten minutes ago, the Doctor explains again that it's on a "revitalizing loop" and will recharge in about four hours. I get that this is a two-parter and that we've just seen him use it in a cockadoodie way to get us out of the cliffhanger and that it needed to be said and that it gives us the mark until they can take the TARDIS out of there again, but it's shoddy to have this all explained in exactly the same way, between exactly the same characters, as last week.
Whatever. They discuss how they don't have a deus in their machina for awhile, but Jake says that they've still got weapons. Which might not be good enough to fight Cybermen, but will be good enough to kill the hell out of Peter Tyler. Who is surprised by this, but not as shrill as Rose -- whose hair, it should be said, looks fucking adorable this week, and she's very pretty but especially pretty in this story -- who freaks out on Jake for suggesting this. Jake puts forth the theory -- which is only, like, three-quarters true and mostly not Pete's fault -- that the party was a trap that managed to wipe out the entire government and put the Lumic the Lunatic in charge. Peter asks why he would have left Jackie behind, if that were the case, and Rickey's like, "Logic blah, we're going to kill you on this circumstantial evidence," and whatever Charlie Conner bullshit. "Talk about executions, you'll make me your enemy," says the Doctor. "And take some really good advice -- you don't wanna do that." Rickey's like, "Except for how we know Pete Tyler's been working for Lumic forever," and Rose is horrified. Mrs. M. explains that they've got a government mole: "Lumic's private files, his South American operations, the lot. Secret broadcasts twice a week." Cue the obvious "from Gemini" from Pete, who is of course Gemini, because that's how government moles work, and Rickey pshaws: "Encrypted wavelength six-five-seven, using binary nine." Rickey and Jake glance at each other. "That's the only reason I was working for Lumic," says Pete. "To get information. I thought I was broadcasting to the Security Services, and what do I get? Scooby Doo and his gang." He talks shit about Mrs. Moore's van. Mickey shakes his head, confused, and says that Rickey is bad-ass and that they know what they're doing: "He's London's Most Wanted!" Rickey admits that it is for parking tickets, and Rose raises her eyebrow at him wonderfully. "They were deliberate!" Rickey protests. "I was fighting the system! Park anywhere, that's me!" Activists, again.
