Back at Janis's place, Simon's jibbering excitedly about picking up the necessary tools for breaking into NLAP. Janis -- who is wearing the same purple top we've seen in her flashforwards -- is all, "What, at Ace Hardware?" Simon rolls his eyes all, "Not that kind of hardware." As he and Janis prepare to leave, who should be waiting at the door but Demetri? He pulls a gun and shouts, "What's he doing here, Janis?" Janis sort-of lies that Simon's turning himself in. She leaves out the NLAP part.
However, in the next scene, Demetri's all up to speed, and he's sort of incredulous that Janis is going along with Simon's plan, as "he used that machine to put the world to sleep last time." Simon angrily refutes this. This standoff -- everyone pointing guns at everyone else -- is sort of tedious, which is disappointing, as it's got Janis trying to trade on her friendship with Demetri, Demetri all strung out from exhaustion and being dumped because he did Janis a hell of a favor, and Simon edgy because he thirsts for the opportunity to effect a global TOLD YOU SO. So Janis disarms Simon -- who punches her right in the uterus, thereby setting up her tense emergency doctor's appointment late in the day -- and she and Demetri exchange looks, which suggests that they've come to some sort of agreement. But Simon doesn't get this, so he hisses to Janis, "You're going to regret this for the rest of your life."
Hey, remember how I talked about the sacrificial special-ops team? Guess who just got sacrificed as Mark and Vogel listened hopelessly over the radio? We cut to Hellinger looking completely unsurprised by what's going on, and Mark catches sight of him, then charges in to deliver an ass-kicking. Wedeck stops him this time, while Vogel elaborately rolls his eyes in the background. And before Mark can protest too much, Olivia swings by with Charlie. Vogel gives the little girl a sick look before disappearing; Mark hugs his daughter. Olivia explains that Charlie's a bit of a basket case right now: "She just needed her dad. I really didn't know what else to do."
