Zoe walks back over to Lucas and Duncan, who is ready to see if his mineral mask can reverse the effects of freaking radiation. He wipes some off of Lucas's forehead, and sure enough, it worked! "Duncan, you're a genius!" Zoe says. Duncan smiles, which isn't a good idea since he always looks his most stupid when he smiles. Zoe asks Duncan if he can whip up enough of the mask to de-green the rest of the bowling team. Why bother? They're going to turn back to their normal colors in a few days anyway, right?
At GD, Carter asks Allison why Big Ed would want to steal Glowbidium. Allison explains that Big Ed wasn't just a cleaner -- "he was THE Cleaner." That means he made sure rooms and labs were clean of everything down to the last molecule. Tess supplies an anecdote about how a single dust mite once got into a project at CERN and set them back six months. Good. CERN is the place that has that Large Hadron Collider thing that's going to create a black hole that swallows the entire planet. Carter asks if Big Ed was possibly using the Glowbidium to power some sort of vacuum. Tess snickers at this suggestion, and Allison explains that they've moved well beyond vacuums and onto micro-organisms. "Kind of like soap?" Carter asks. More snickers from Tess. This is not endearing the character to me at all. Or at least, not as a love interest for Carter. I think he can do better than someone who clearly thinks he's a moron. Allison explains some more that micro-organisms are created to consume a certain metal or chemical, so that things like industrial waste and oil spills can be cleaned easily and completely. Carter reminds everyone that Big Ed's remains were odd because they were completely free of radiation -- perhaps he was the victim of his own radiation-eating micro-organism? DUH, Allison and Tess. Awesomely, Carter looks to Tess so he can see her look all disappointed with herself for being outsmarted by someone she thinks is an idiot.
Duncan is now in GD. What the hell? I know he has the (unnecessary) cure for the bowling team, but there's no reason why he can't hand it out outside of GD and no reason why he'd be allowed in a top secret government research facility. It's ridiculous. Why bother to spend all that time telling us about the security at GD and the necessity for confidentiality when they're just going to blow it whenever it's convenient to the plot? Anyway, Duncan hands out jars of his mineral mask to all the bowling team members with instructions to remove their clothes and smear it all over their bodies. Jo takes the lone female team member off while the men will have a group nudity session, much to Fargo's displeasure. He decides to apply the mask by himself and spare his blushes.
