...until later, when she wakes up and hears Nate's muffled voice. Going down the hall, she hears him in the nursery, chewing someone out over the phone for being unable to deliver what was promised. He tells whomever it is that he's ending "it," and to get rid of "her." He adds, "I'll get rid of the baby," and I hope for his sake that Echo doesn't suddenly remember her restaurant-girl personality again anytime soon.
A chyron tells us we're at Senator "Daniel" Perrin's residence in Alexandria, and inside, the man in question is asking some blonde who apparently lives with him if she thinks he jumped the gun with the Rossum press conference, as he'd hoped witnesses would come forward as a result. Since that hasn't happened and their NSA source has "gone to ground," they're stuck merely with anecdotal evidence. I'm pretty sure making scandalous and outrageous claims like that without any proof is a fast-track way to end a political career, but Blondie takes no more than a casual glance at the records he's got up on his computer screen and concludes that they must at least be laundering money, like WHATEVER, honey, and then the doorbell rings, and when Blondie goes to get it, Perrin calls after her that "Rossum crossed a line," and they clearly are leaning on people to keep them quiet. This, of course, is the cue for another silly and irritating cloak-and-dagger moment, as first, "Cindy" doesn't answer his call, and then, when he gets up, she reappears suddenly, saying there was no one there. Seriously, who directed this episode, some kid who won a prize at an underground horror festival? Cindy hands Alexis some files that whoever rang the bell apparently left, which I'm guessing are fan letters informing him how tough it is to get used to hearing him pronounce < href="http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/show/dollhouse/echoes_1a.php?page=9">hard R's.
