Carter enters Tess's office as she's getting off the phone with someone about an "incredible opportunity" that she needs more time to decide whether or not to take. Ah, this sounds like good news for me and other people who aren't big fans of Tess. And it is! Tess tells Carter she's been offered a job, which she'll need because as soon as Allison gets back from maternity leave, Tess is unemployed. So... they didn't need her to study all that ComputerKim data after all? I don't understand. Anyway, the job is right up Tess's alley and involves running a radio telescope array... in Australia. At this, Carter's happiness for Tess turns into sadness for himself. When Tess says that the offer was originally made last week, apparently before they were so in love and she was spending every night with him, he's more than a little annoyed that she never mentioned it. "At the time, it didn't have anything to do with you," she says. Wait, really? Maybe they weren't sleeping together a week ago, but they were definitely dating and had been for several weeks. Again, I am confused. Carter quickly changes the subject to the supercollider and Larry's theory that dark energy caused the accident. Tess insists that there's no need for Carter to worry himself about the collider because she has everything under control. The Emergency Alert is a master of timing, and chooses this very second to flash on Tess's computer screen.
Carter, Tess and two useless GD security guys rush down the hall. They're met by Crazy Julia, who won't tell them what's wrong but insists that they hurry. Inside the lab, they find Martha flying around. One episode after another, this second half of the season is all about bringing back the old favorites! Except Stark, sadly. Carter asks her what's going on, and she points towards the ceiling, where we see Fargo and assorted metal objects firmly stuck to it. "Of course," Carter says.
