After the break, we cut to the rest of the town, where things are flying all over the place. Jo tries to keep order and get people off the streets. Where to, exactly? Inside their homes so they can be impaled by a flying steak knife? There is no escape! On the phone, Allison tells Jo to try to keep people safe. Jo ducks a flying car and tells Allison to tell Carter that she can totally handle this. Only then does Allison realize that she hasn't seen Carter in a while.
In the fifth dimension, Tess and Carter are standing over the crispy remains of Johnson. Carter notes that the way Johnson's body went sliding off the pad and across the floor indicates that she didn't park her car in the middle of the road in the beginning of the episode. He's finally realized that cars don't just skid sideways without being pushed by a waving P-brane. That gives Tess the realization she needed to figure out the correct re-entry calibrations: P-branes move sideways. Johnson didn't take that into account when he programmed the re-entry pad, but Tess will. As for Carter, he needs to somehow stop Henry and Curtis from turning Johnson's machines off to give Tess more time to make the calibrations. Carter runs over to do that, only to realize that he has no way of interacting with the third dimension.
Fargo enters the room to inform Allison that the GD helicopter has flown away in all the P-brane disturbances. What? NO!!! I am really going to miss seeing that thing in every GD establishing shot. Henry orders Fargo to help them. "Come on, Sheriff! Do something!" Tess says. But she won't say what, and he has no idea. Meanwhile, stuff is flying around Johnson's lab, so all non-essential personnel (ahem Allison ahem) might want to skedaddle. Or at least wear a helmet. Fargo checks out a computer screen that shows that the P-brane wave is growing and spreading across town, just to raise the stakes. As if losing Carter wasn't enough! "Henry, push the button!" Allison says. He won't until they're ready, and Allison should know better than to ask. Why must she suck so much this season? I swear she used to be cool.
