Meanwhile, the town of Eureka is thrown into chaos as drones fly overhead, firing and blowing things up. Back at GD, Allison says the drones are destroying the power beacons for the electro-magnetic shield. If they blow up enough of those beacons, the shield will go down and the drones will be able to escape Eureka. Well, that was easy. Maybe next time they'll hide those beacons a little bit better.
Jack drives into town to more effectively clear the streets. He announces over the jeep PA that everyone needs to go inside while the residents mill about stupidly. What is wrong with them? I would have been inside so fast there would have been a Sara-shaped hole in the wall. I'm not wasting my time with doors when there are killer drones about. Jack's work is interrupted by a call from Zoe, who says she's having drone problems of her own. "Martha's here!" she says, as we see Martha hovering around the kitchen. Jack abandons the town for his daughter. Ah, well. They weren't listening anyway. Zoe peers over the counter she's hiding behind, but does not see Martha. That's because Martha is hovering right next to her.
By the time Jack arrives home, Zoe is just standing there and S.A.R.A.H. is powering up again. Jack is worried, but Zoe says Martha didn't try to hurt her. In fact, Zoe thinks Martha was actually trying to help her escape her controlling father. How could she possibly assume that? Maybe they cut that scene out.
Back at GD, there are very few power beacons left. Stark says they'll have to boost the power in the existing beacons as Jack runs in and says they should do the opposite and power them down. It sounds crazy, but Jack says he thinks they have a drone with the emotional equivalency of a pissed-off teenager in their midst who just wants some space. Eva disagrees, but Jack has a ton of evidence to back up his claim. Actually, all he has is the fact that Martha sided with his daughter and tried to set her free after hearing that she'd been grounded by Jack. Eva doesn't buy it, and orders Stark to call in the DoD air support to shoot the drones down. Jack says the drones will respond to their attacks by going on the offense themselves, which no one wants. Stark and Allison take Jack's side, but Eva says powering the beacons down would be like a surrender, something she never does. She has the DoD's authority and is ready to use it, as she calls General Mansfield. Well, if she could do that herself all along, why did she bother telling Stark to do it? Too lazy to dial the phone herself, I'll bet. Meanwhile, I do like that, for all his shortcomings, Stark is man enough to admit that his rival is correct when it's important.
