Sure enough, the next time we see Fargo, he's pulling up alongside Jo's new car in one of his own. She is pissed, saying it took her six weeks to get what Fargo got in six minutes thanks to pulling some strings with a friend in requisitions. Jo is also disappointed in Fargo for being so quick to dump the inanimate object that served him so well for such a long time. Fargo says all's well that ends well -- he found someone to take Tabitha off his hands. Larry starts-and-stops alongside Jo in his new old car.
Carter and Tess inform Allison about the makeshift plasma generators. Allison has her doubts that anyone at GD is working on something that would need that kind of power, so Tess points her finger at the Planetary Defense guy. Allison says Weinman has all the resources he needs at GD, so he doesn't have to steal crap from around town and make a plasma generator in the woods. Tess still insists that Weinman is trying to make a surface-to-air alien-vaporizing energy beam. To get Tess off her back, Allison agrees to talk to Weinman.
Fargo arrives home to find Tabitha waiting for him in his garage. "I guess Larry changed his mind," she says. Larry is wearing an Inspector Gadget-looking trench coat and enjoying an ice cream cone when Fargo almost runs him over crossing the street in front of Café Diem. Fargo is furious at Larry for giving Tabitha back, but Larry says that Fargo sold him a lemon -- the stereo only plays 80s rock, the AC smells like feet, and the car only drives in reverse. Larry demands his money back, but Fargo refuses, saying they had a deal and Larry should honor it. He gives him back his car keys and leaves. Larry's all indignant, apparently never having bought a used car before and thus believing it would be a pleasant and honest experience.
Carter stakes out the plasma generator site. He's sitting in his jeep out in the open, so I hope he isn't expecting to sneak up on a perpetrator like that. Tess arrives and hopes to help out. He refuses until she shows off the pizza she brought as incentive. It works. He soon regrets it, though, as we cut to some time later with all the pizza eaten and Carter complaining that he would have preferred pepperoni to "organic tofu medley." The pizza was free, Carter. Stop complaining. Tess digs into her goodie bag of snacks she brought for either an all-night stakeout, a long session of pot smoking, or school lunch: a juicebox, a protein bar, and Funyuns. Carter's first response is that Tess eats a lot. Ha! Then he says that Weinman is not who he suspects of building the plasma generator because he trusts Allison's opinion. The subject turns to Allison and all the stress she's apparently been under lately, and Tess says Carter is very considerate and she can understand why Allison likes him so much. They have a Moment, which is blessedly interrupted by a whole bunch of people walking past the Jeep and towards the generator site holding various household objects. Carter spots Lucas and calls out to him, but there's no response. Almost everyone is dressed in purple (I guess there was a sale at the local clothing store?) and they're all underage -- including Zoe (wearing purple sweatpants). She turns and looks at Carter when he calls her, but says nothing and turns back to the site and walks towards it with a blender in her hands. I guess this plasma generator makes mai tais while you wait for the aliens to vaporize?
