Carter wakes up before daybreak in his Paris hotel room, because his phone is ringing. It's Kem, telling him to get up.
Moments later, Carter stands outside on the street. Kem pulls up in her little car and says she wants to show Carter something. He asks if it involves coffee, and Kem says that everything in Paris involves coffee. I'm so moving to Paris. Carter gets into the car and Kem peels out.
Kem and Carter run to get on a train. Carter wonders what's going on, and Kem tells him to be patient. They play the game where you look at strangers and make up stories about their lives. I love that game. Although Kem's stories are kind of depressing, and always seem to involve someone dead or dying. Carter asks if he and Kem have a story. Kem doesn't answer, and tells Carter to close his eyes and wait. The train comes out of a tunnel, and Carter sees the sun coming up and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

Abby says that Neela is trying to decide whether she should go to work, and explains what happened with Pratt. Jake is impressed, but needs to go inside and get to work. Abby follows.
