Martha flies to the other side of the restaurant, napkins flying into the air in her wake. Jack and Jo turn to face where they think she is with their weapons lowered so as not to threaten her. Things are looking up, so, of course, Larry comes running in with Eva to ruin it. Martha objects to their presence and decloaks. Larry holds up his Eva Thorne book with a puzzled look on his face as Martha powers up. Jack heroically shoves Eva out of the way as Larry weakly holds his book up to take the full impact of Martha's laser-photon thing. He goes flying backwards as Jo and Jack shoot Martha down. She lands on the counter, smoking and dead. Eva announces that she's okay, if her hair slightly mussed. Larry, however, is not. He's lying on the floor with a big smoking hole in his book. Teenagers hate books. Even robot drone teenagers.
After the break, we find out that Larry is not dead, but unconscious. Thank god for that, no one says. An ambulance takes him away as Zoe stands over Martha and wonders what happened: "she seemed so nice." She's a killer robot drone, Zoe. She's not "nice." Jack decides that Zoe is no longer allowed to work, since he's too busy worrying about her to do his job properly. "You can't control me forever!" Zoe pouts. "I can today," Jack says with a smile that would really piss me off if I were Zoe. She just leaves the restaurant without bothering to protest.
Allison walks up and Jack asks her why Martha shot at Eva when she had every opportunity to shoot at Jack, but didn't. "Poor judgment," Stark mutters to Allison. Yeah, that'll really make her want to marry you. What a catch you are, telling your potential fiancée that you hope the guy she's friends with is killed by a rogue drone. For her part, Eva says she "appreciates" Jack's help in saving her life and shooting down the deadly drone, but the town is clearly out of control. She orders Allison and Stark to bring Martha back to GD to be dismantled and chuckles that her review will not be a good one while everyone else thinks to himself that Jack was wrong to save her from Martha. Eva leaves, and Allison helplessly wonders what they can do now. Jack actually has an idea as he inspects Martha and finds a small remote transmitter hidden on her, allowing someone to control Martha's actions. Since just about everyone has a reason to want Eva dead, there's a long list of suspects in that regard. But Jack has one in mind.
We go back to Edison's barn, which is a lot emptier but still has some equipment inside. Way to miss that, DoD. Jack and Jo tell Edison that Martha recharged at the Café and then fired at Eva. Edison says he didn't program Martha to attack unprovoked, giving Jack the chance to turn to Mena as he pointedly says that Martha had outside help. He then wonders why she had the champagne ready for Edison when he returned from the test when he hadn't told her the result. She must have known that he won, because she did something to ensure the victory. It doesn't take much to crack Mena, and she admits that after fifteen years of watching her husband create machines that were destined to be destroyed, she just wanted him to win once so everyone would see how talented he is. Edison holds her hand. Jack is less charmed, saying that Mena's tampering has put a man in the hospital. And shattered his windshield. Mena says she "boosted" Martha's abilities but had no idea that would allow her to escape and hurt people. Jo whips out the remote transmitter that proves that Mena is lying, but Mena says she's never seen it before. Edison looks at the transmitter for all of one second and says it isn't sophisticated enough to control Martha for very long. And, he adds, if Martha was meant to go after Eva, she wouldn't have missed. Which means Martha's target was actually Larry. Not like he has any fewer enemies than Eva.
