After Keiko's bad day at work, she's blowing off steam by wandering around Tokyo's tattoo district. She walks into a shop and asks for a tattoo. The artist rebuffs her, but Keiko insists that she's serious. The artist dismissively says, "You look like an office girl. If you get that, what will they think of you at work?" Keiko says, "I don't care." The tattoo artist continues, "The nail that stands out gets hammered down." Keiko says, "I'm not doing it for them."
At the FBI office, Mark apprises Wedeck of the progress on Demetri's call (they've got it) and then awkwardly segues into, "Did you send Olivia a text?" Wedeck asks, "Why would I send your wife a text?" Mark's all, "You're one of only two people I've told ... and I recall you were pretty pissed that I was drinking, and the implications it had for our investigation." Without even looking away from his computer screen, Wedeck says, "I see. You were thinking I was so angry and so petty that I'd run out and text your wife about it." When he puts it that way, Mark does sound kind of silly. Wedeck kicks Mark out of his office. Again, not a direct answer to the question, but again, I'm loving how each man has verbally bitch-slapped Mark. That needs to be a regular feature on this show.
Meanwhile, Bryce is finding out from a patient that the t-shirt Keiko is wearing in his flashforward comes from Sushi Arahida, a restaurant near the university district in Tsukuba. And -- o happy contrivance! -- there's only one restaurant like this, so the odds of finding the mystery lady (i.e. Keiko) have just narrowed.
Olivia waylays him in the hall. She's so moved by Bryce's plight that she's done some research and made some calls, and she's managed to get him enrolled in a medical trial for treatment by trifectumab in Houston. Bryce is all, "Thanks, but I believe that I'm not supposed to do a damn thing for my health between now and April because, after all, I'm alive in my flashfoward and surely there's no point in preparing for anything between now and then! Other than learning Japanese, I mean." Olivia says, "You're only going to hear me say this once: Maybe the reason you're alive in your flashforward is because you're going to take this drug and get better." She must really care about Bryce to resort to this line of reasoning. He should be touched. A more jerky boss would have said, "Maybe you're going to meet this girl in a restaurant to tell her that you're riddled with cancer and going to die the minute the check arrives." Olivia begs him, "Go to Houston. If you need a couple of days, take a couple of days."
