Then Carter's back at Zoe's bedside. With Lexi. Ugh. Zoe is sleeping, because that's what old people do. How come she doesn't look any older? Shouldn't she have a healthy dose of Star Trek age advancing make-up on at this point? Allison walks in and tells Carter that Eva is now assisting Henry in finding a cure. Allison says it's especially important that they find one, since the Element X did, in fact, make it into the groundwater. Then ... shouldn't they be running around town right now telling people not to drink the water or take showers? Lexi tries to be a good guest and sister by saying "you guys are lucky you don't have a boss. Otherwise, he'd come down here, he'd kick your -- " and she's interrupted by Allison getting a phone call. Hey, is it possible that they can cure everyone in town except Lexi? Please?
It turns out that Allison and Carter do have a boss, and he's here right now! General Mansfield wants to see Eva right away. Allison says she's helping Henry get a "dangerous situation under control." Mansfield is confused, since last he heard from Carter, Eva was the dangerous situation. Carter says he's changed his mind. Mansfield is very upset with Carter for letting a "breach of security" in a "deactivated facility" turn into the death of everyone in town. Yeah, when you put it that way, it does look bad. But the DoD should have done a better job with the background checks of the people it hired to take over their most advanced research facility, hmm? Allison tries to stick up for Carter, saying he isn't responsible for this. Mansfield agrees, saying Eva is the one who did this and he wants her arrested -- right now. Carter begs him not to do that, since Eva could save his daughter's life. Mansfield gives in: "when this is over, Thorne belongs to me."
