Ben hesitates for just a second before yelling for help and sending someone to get his dad. Rick escapes through the window and starts running and Ben follows him, yelling for everyone else to stop him because he's going to warn the Skitters. Because Rick has special Skitter powers, he can do things like leap over a school bus and run really fast, so it's hard to catch him. I wish there had been a trampoline to give him some extra lift as he bounded over that bus. Ben starts to run after Rick, and then some idiot tries to shoot Ben. Maggie redirects his aim just in time. Ben is like, "Really?" Tom takes the guy's gun, and the guy tells Maggie that if aliens figure out where they are, then they're dead. Maggie suggests that he save his ammo for them, and not the kids. Except for Rick. I mean, everyone would be a lot better off if he were at least traumatically injured. Tom tells Ben to go back inside and hang out with Anne while he goes after Rick. He puts Maggie in temporary charge while he's gone. I bet she'll have the whole place shaped up in half an hour!
We catch up with Rick, who is wandering through some very foggy, scraggly woods. It is the kind of creepy scene that is most reflective of his soul. And there is Megan! Well that didn't take long. He should have tried a hike in the forest earlier. Megan, whose face is starting to get Skitter scales, tells Rick that they've been trying to hear him, but it's been difficult. He says it's because they took the harness off, and then totally gets awkward like he wants to touch her but his hands are too sweaty. Megan says that harness-removing is awful, and that humans just don't understand. "Humans Just Don't Understand" was the first big hit for alien rappers DJ Scatty Skit and the Fresh Mech. Rick holds Megan's gaze and says, "I want to come back and be like them. Like you." Megan is all, "Of course you do!" At least when you're full-on harnessed the Skitter scales eventually cover your dirty face. First, Megan says, Rick needs to tell her everything about the people he's been with. If you thought Rick might have some sort of moral quandary of giving up the people who have been inexplicably nice to him, you forget that he skittered up a wall and attacked an old dude. Rick does not even hesitate at the idea of confessing, and we head to commercials.
