Fargo is at the site taking readings. This is a terrible idea, since the last time someone from GD did this, he was zombified by nightfall. And he's been left totally unattended, too. Smart. With no security guards to talk to, Fargo talks to his new car instead and tries to figure out a name for her. Say, that is important work that's well worth taking time away from researching the child-brain-damaging anti-matter bomb. Fargo's name choices are: Trixie, Cassandra, and Shanaynay. None of them feel right, and Fargo is forced to go back to his real job when devices start beeping. He calls Allison to report it in a repeat of that weird mini-scene we saw during the commercial break before. Huh? What's going on? Is it the painkillers I'm on while I recover from my tonsillectomy or does this show just not make much sense sometimes? While Fargo is on hold with GD, he hears an engine rev. He looks down the street to see Tabitha there, and starts yelling at Larry for stalking him. Suddenly, the car charges towards him, spins around, opens the trunk, and chases Fargo in reverse. He drops his cell phone in his haste to run away, and it's run over. Sorry, product placement cell phone company, but I prefer to buy my phones from a carrier that sells phones that are sturdy and reliable, not cheap and flimsy.
Carter watches Zoe sleep. Jo stops by, saying that Zane is also asleep. She couldn't find any obvious connection between the people who were affected and offers to watch Zoe if Carter wants to get some coffee. He begs off, and she says that there's more excitement to be had watching Zoe sleep than policing the town of Eureka, where traffic has been so smooth that she almost wants there to be a high-speed chase so she'll have something to do. That smart asphalt seems to be taking all the fun out of police work. "Everyone's driving around on auto-pilot," Jo whines. A lightbulb goes off over Carter's head.
He heads for Allison's office with Henry and says that he found the link to the trance people after all: all of their cars are on the smart asphalt system. The teens of town like Zoe and Lucas were the first to be affected because their cars were the first to be placed on the system. After that, residents were added to the system in the order of how bad their driving skills are. Zane's are apparently horrible, thus he's on the system. Even though Jack had a bad record of totaling cars though, he was not yet on the system. Allison says that Zane created the system and thus is the best person to ask for help on this. Hopefully, they'll be able to wake him up in time to shut the smart asphalt grid down or else face "the mother of all traffic jams," as Allison describes it. Clearly, she has never lived in LA.
