Remember how Aaron had a daughter who came back from the dead and is hiding out from evil Jericho security at Aaron’s place? Well, Tracy's "friend" Mike reappears with a story about how Tracy called him, and Aaron's all, "Yeah, she's crashing at my place!" thereby leading Mike, who is actually not Tracy's friend, right to his quarry. Well done, father of the year. Tracy is then packed in a shipping box and FedEx'd to Kandahar. Aaron comes home to an empty house, correctly deduces that Mike's the reason Tracy's been kidnapped, and goes after Mike. He is surprisingly good at issuing beatdowns, and after getting some preliminary information from Mike, he takes his fight to the head of Jericho, wrecks a child’s birthday, and learns where Tracy's been shipped. The moral here is to never, ever mess with someone who can cut off your utilities.
Zoey comes clean to Demetri regarding her flashforward -- she's now up on Korean funeral customs -- and he tells her things'll be fine because he's filed the paperwork to destroy the gun. "We're getting married. There's no getting out of it," he says. I sort of don't understand why those two don't just elope now as a sort of "Free will rulz!" gesture to the universe, then throw a big party in April. Zoey then goes to harangue Mark about possible scenarios in which he'd kill Demetri, but for all her vaunted skills as a litigator, she's unable to get him to spin the tale of when and how he'd like to kill Demetri. And then Zoey hands a FOIA to Wedeck -- she wants to review all the Mosaic-related files, because she wants to find the smoking gun (as it were) that will point to Demetri's pending death. Demetri fumes over this, but what really makes him lose his cool is when Zoey makes a deal to represent Alda Herzog in exchange for whatever information the Teutonic terrorist has regarding Demetri's death. They have the world's quickest fight, but Demetri's plan to offer his destroyed gun as a make-up offering goes south -- the gun is missing.
Mark tries to recreate his pending April 29 phone call with Lloyd. The relevant details: Lloyd had been writing a fancy formula on Mark and Olivia's bedroom mirror in lipstick, and he knows "D. Gibbons" as someone named Dyson Frost, a physicist who steals intellectual property and was voted "Most Likely To Embrace Dr. Doom As A Role Model." Mark seizes on this to solicit Lloyd's vow of cooperation, especially since both men are all about preventing another flashforward and they suspect Dyson Frost will be all about causing one. Mark then takes his information about Dyson Frost to Wedeck and Vogel and what do you know, Vogel ships Janis and Demetri off to Somalia to check out the weird goings-on there.
This is going to mess up Janis's plans, as she spent most of the episode preparing for the round of insemination that will, in theory, make her great with child. (Although she's pretty awesome already.)
So here's what we learn in the first few minutes of the episode: Fifteen years back, Aaron did a stretch in the pokey, he was on the verge of making parole, one of the guards made lascivious comments about then-adolescent Tracy, Aaron then proved that, like Chuck Norris, he could subdue heavily-armed men with only his righteous fury and his bare fists. The episode doesn't show this, but I'm guessing Aaron's chances at parole were severely diminished after that episode.
We then transition to "Lathan's" in present Los Angeles. It's a bar, and Aaron's found Tracy drinking there. He finally pries her off the barstool with "Let me ask you one question before you shut me out again. If you're so scared these Jericho guys are after you, and I found you by walking into the closest bar ... do you really think this is a smart move here?" Even drunk, Tracy can see the logic in what Aaron's saying.
Across town, Zoey is getting the details on Demetri's pending murder. She is none too happy to learn that Mark is a prime suspect in said murder-to-be, and Demetri pleads with her not to get "all lawyer-y on me," pointing out that Mark risked both his career and his life to try and find out the details of Demetri's murder-to-be, because Benford's just that swell. Zoey, however, is still hung up on her flashforward -- hell hath no fury like a bride who has to repurpose her dress for a Korean funeral -- and Demetri tells her to chillax, as he's filed the paperwork to have the gun destroyed and it is presumably tucked away in an FBI evidence locker awaiting its fate. This is not reassuring Zoey like it should.
And now, Plotlines That Can Be Distilled Into One Paragraph: Did you all know that Janis was pregnant in her flashforward? She was! And according to the timing, she has to get pregnant NEXT WEEK to make that flashforward come true. Janis has a discussion at the fertility clinic that basically comes down to her saying, "Baby! BABY! BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABBBBY!" and then she has a discussion with Demetri that basically comes down to her saying, "Baby! BABY! BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABBBBY!" and then the FBI blows a hole in Project Baby BABY BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABBBBY by sending her off to Somalia to investigate the phenomena that may be linked to prior blackout experiments. So help me, if the next episode has Janis knocking back a few to bolster her resolve, then propositioning one of her male colleagues so she can keep to her conception timetable, I am going to break up with this show.
