Bryce and Nicole meet awkwardly outside the detention center, and Bryce details his latest Keiko-stalking efforts. Nicole makes a very sincere apology for trying to keep Bryce and Keiko apart, and Bryce apologizes for his prior "If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with" ethos and simpers, "This whole thing with her was meant to be." They part, with Bryce not saying anything like "Good luck not drowning!" Team Brycole is dead to me, thanks to Bryce's ridiculous vacillation. Boo. BOOOOOO.
Meanwhile, at LAX, Keiko's mom decides to create a massive security disturbance in line -- we're talking assaulting federal agents here -- so her daughter can make a run for it and get to the sushi restaurant in time to meet Bryce. I'd cheer for maternal devotion, but you're telling me not one of these agent foresaw writing an incident report about the crazed Nipponese matron who gave them a black eye? And you're telling me nobody thought to draw a weapon once a non-English-speaking person flipped out in an airport? I call shenanigans.
At the FBI building, Mark is trying to persuade Wedeck that he can be let in on the big Who Put Bombs in My Building? Investigation of 2010, and Wedeck snarls, "So help me, Mark, all the glorious choirs of heaven, if you step out of this car, I will have your head on a plate." Mark rolls his eyes at this but elects to keep silent because he isn't slated to be killed for another few minutes. Wedeck then whips out a phone and says, "You need a friend, so I tracked him down for you. Someone to keep you company while you wait." Yes, but it's Aaron with his "You choose what's next, and you'll wind up right where you're supposed to be" twaddle, so that's hardly going to convince Benford to stay out of the building.
