The episode begins with Charlie waking from a sound sleep and shouting for Olivia. When Olivia comforts her crying child, Charlie tells her, "Today's the day. Today's the day Daddy's gonna die." Olivia has nothing to say to that, so she kisses the top of Charlie's head and wonders how she's going to finesse the timeline when bringing Dad 2.0 around.
7:26 a.m. Simon has evidently kept Janis up all night, which su-u-ucks if she's still in the "so tired I could die" phase of pregnancy. He, however, is fueled by spite and genius. Simon expresses some minor concern over how large the howling mob will be when his name is definitively linked to the Suspect Zero footage, and whether they'll stick with the classic torches and pitchfork, or go with newfangled tasers. Janis wearily asks what Simon wants. He tells her: "I want revenge. I want to destroy the people who are responsible for the global blackout." Janis cites Hellinger as proof that the sinister world cabal behind all this is about to crumble, and Simon promptly calls BS on the argument, slyly alluding to her tenure as a mole for the cabal. He admits he doesn't know who the cabal is, but since they had him install a piece of software on the NLAP mainframe to ensure the accelerator would fire on October 6, he'd like to use that as his first clue toward tracking said cabal down. Janis tries to talk Simon out of a road trip up to Palo Alto and into a road trip to FBI HQ; he bargains, "You get me to NLAP, I'll turn myself in."
8:11 a.m. Mark and Demetri are eating a taco-truck breakfast and congratulating themselves on a night well-spent capturing Hellinger. Which is odd, since I seem to remember that scene taking place during the day in the last episode, but I suppose the paperwork could have taken a while. As might processing a passel of interchangeable henchpeople in black turtlenecks -- you'd keep getting confused, on account of them all looking alike, start double-processing ... ANYWAY. Demetri notes that he's now off to work with the digital forensics guys to try and recover some of the computer files Hellinger managed to erase. Mark is like, "That will be tough, as you're going to be spending the morning on Hawaiian Air, winging your way to the Rainbow State." And then he hands over a thoughtful gift and nice callback to prior episodes: a CD he burned with 15 different covers of "Islands in the Stream." Demetri laughs as he asks when Mark made it, and Mark cracks, "I don't get much sleep." He then gives Demetri a carpe-diem-type speech about seizing the future he used to think he didn't have, and concludes, "Even with the way everything went down, even though I lost her, marrying Olivia was the best thing I did. Don't be afraid, especially on a day like this."
