Night has fallen. Aaron brings a hot beverage to Tracy as she sits out on the back patio, and she asks if there's any chance that he spiked it with bourbon. Aaron snorts that it's not likely, and asks when Tracy took up the demon rum; she declines to answer. But she's plenty vocal once Aaron reveals that he's looped Mark in on what's going on. "Are you insane? You don't even know these people. I came to this house specifically because I thought I'd be safe, but I see now that was a big mistake. The second that Jericho knows I'm still alive, they'll find me and they'll kill me." Aaron refutes all this with, "Don't you remember your flashforward? The fact that you even had one proves that you're going to be alive." Then Aaron narrates his complete flashforward: "I was with you. I gave you my pocketknife. You were on a cot. You fell asleep. We were in some kind of bunker or cave, surrounded by guards." (With portraits of keffiyeh-wearing men and Islamic script on the walls, by the way.) Aaron continues, "I think somebody was calling my name. Then I stepped outside. There was a man out there. He was very concerned about you. He said something strange, 'The account has been verified,' then I gave him an envelope, but I don't know what was in it." Tracy asks about the man in Aaron's vision and we learn that person is Khamir Dejan, a field medic with the I.M.C. Khamir's the one who took care of Tracy after her Jericho incident, it turns out. Tracy says, "That's why I left. I was so afraid Jericho would kill Khamir to get to me." Aaron falls back on his I-saw-it-in-the-flashforward-ergo-it's-true argument, but Tracy's not fully on board with his theory of predestination. Also, she seems not to be too thrilled about the idea of being back in Afghanistan.
