When we return, Tessa's dad is conscious and tells Clayton that he's gone two miles out and there's no sign of Pope. Clayton feels that Pope isn't going to try anything, since he didn't stab Tessa's dad when he had the chance, and coming after them buys him nothing. Tessa's dad asks, "How long are we gonna keep this up?" and Clayton says that it's a lot easier for everybody if the prisoners want to stay there. I guess this means that Tessa's creepy dad is an advocate of just locking everyone up until they can be handed over to the aliens. Show some manners toward your prisoners, brah! Clayton says that this way is easier on everyone, and notes that the next exchange is tomorrow so they'll see after that. I'm still hoping that the first Second Mass exchange involves the dream team of Matt and Lourdes.
At dinner, Mike notes that he heard some commotion outside, and Clayton blames it on a coyote. Mike says, "You've got a different scale of problems out here." Truer than you know, my friend. As will surprise no one, Rick is being a total freak at the dinner table. Clayton tries to perk him up by saying how, when he served with Mike, Mike never stopped talking about him. Mike tries to joke that it was mostly good stuff, and Ricky turns to him in his creepazoid way and asks, "What good stuff could that be? How I was sick all the time? How I could barely catch my breath?" Just when you think things couldn't get more awkward, Rick turns to Ben and asks, "How can you eat their food?" Ben is upset enough even at the whisper of being in some sort of harness alliance with Rick that he leaves the table. Mike tells Rick that they're guests of Doom Farm, and apologizes to the others for Rick's bad manners and creeptastic manner of being. Ricky should actually be delighted at their current situation, since he's closer than ever to returning to his Skitter foster family.
