Cavallo walks into the art studio where Felicity is still painting with her headphones on. She notices him and takes her headphones off. Cavallo takes a look at one of her paintings, and calls it "interesting." Felicity explains that the theme is "undiscovered contents; the surprises that come after life beats you around a little bit." And, they're piñatas. Cavallo tells her to "keep it up" and walks out. Felicity looks happy, and resumes painting. I wonder if Keri Russell had to learn how to look like she knew what she was doing while she was painting.
Noel sits in his office. The phone rings, and he answers it, just as a student appears in his doorway and calmly informs Noel that he thinks that there's a fire in the building -- a big fire. Noel runs out into the hallway, which is filled with smoke. Noel wonders why the alarms aren't going off. The student says that he called 911. Noel tries to pull a fire alarm and nothing happens. Meanwhile, Felicity is just down the hall, painting away, still wearing her headphones, blissfully unaware of the commotion. Noel runs down the hall and yells for everyone to get out of the building. The power goes out. Felicity notices that something is going on, and takes off her headphones. The student comments that he hopes no one is in the studio, because of all the paint and turpentine in there. Noel clarifies that the fire started in the Art department. Noel says that he's going to go see if there's anyone in there. The student doesn't think it's a good idea. Noel instructs the student to tell the fire department that he's on the second floor, east wing; Noel takes off toward the studio.
Felicity approaches the door to the hallway, but the doorknob is hot when she grabs it. She can see flames outside the door, and smoke is coming in underneath. She grabs some rags and stuffs them under the door to keep the smoke out. Meanwhile, Noel runs down the hallway and coughs. Felicity rushes to the window and tries to open it, with no luck. She goes over to her worktable and finds a scraper of some sort, and tries to use it to pry the window open. Noel reaches the studio, and calls Felicity's name. The scraper breaks in Felicity's hand, and then she hears Noel. She tells him that she can't open the window. Noel tells her not to open it, because it will let oxygen in. Instead, she should get down on the ground and cover her mouth. Sparks fly. Felicity yells that she can't get out of there, and wonders what she will do. Noel tells her to stay calm, and promises that he'll be right back. He takes off. Felicity looks on in horror as more glass breaks, and the flames climb higher.
