And in the next scene, Aaron totally violates his daughter's confidence and has a curbside chit-chat with Mark. After Aaron shows Mark a time-stamped photo of Tracy taken on his mobile, he answers Mark's gasped "How?" by explaining, "Tracy would kill me if she knew I was talking to you. She was in a Humvee with three other soldiers. It got blown to Hell. A bloody mess, body parts everywhere, including her leg -- the DNA, right?" Mark asks the pertinent question: What's Tracy been doing these past two years? Ah, but that is what Aaron wants to talk to Mark about: "She's been on the run. She saw something she shouldn't have, and got in trouble with Jericho. They were the ones who attacked her. I know this sounds like something out of a Baldacci novel or something, but Tracy was dead, and now she's alive. I really need your help, Mark. Tracy was scared to death of these Jericho guys, and I'm afraid they're going to try and find her."
Cut to Mark undressing for bed, thinking about the new secret he has to keep from Olivia. She knows something's up, but all Mark says is, "I saw something today, and it got me thinking that if this person's future could come true -- and it did, even though it seemed impossible -- then maybe these visions are more set in stone than we thought." Olivia's not having any of that: "Maybe we have to work that much harder [to subvert them]." Speaking of which -- Mark asks how Olivia likes her new lingerie, and she deflects the query. As Olivia says, "We can change things, Mark. We just have to decide how badly we want to, how far we're willing to go to make it happen," the scene shifts to her office, where the janitor is clearing out the ashcan, which is now full of Olivia's new lingerie. As we shift back to the Benford bedroom, Olivia concludes, "I say there's nothing -- nothing -- we shouldn't be willing to do for one another to make it happen."
Speaking of willing to do insane things for noble reasons ... Mark goes to work the next morning and pitches the idea of using Ingrid as bait in a trap to draw out the star-tattooed guy. Wedeck patiently says, "I know a lot's changed, but we still don't use civilians as bait." Wedeck asks everyone to work the Parofsky angle, but Janis and Demetri quickly demonstrate that they have: Parofsky used to be the chief engineer for Micro-Circadian Electronics and was recently let go on suspicion of corporate espionage. Janis brings up Ingrid's recollection of the thugs taking a package off Parofsky before killing him; she wonders if it contained purloined intellectual property. To make a procedural scene a little snappier: Mark argues that these unknown killers are hot to whack Ingrid, so floating the rumor that she's out of protective custody ought to flush out the goons, and then they can be apprehended in a Mark-masterminded sting. Were I Demetri and Wedeck, I'd remind Mark of his last grand plan, which ended in flames at a doll factory. But I'm not, so they don't, and thus the dramatically-convenient plan continues apace. Ah! One more relevant thing in this scene: Wedeck suspects a mole in their department, what with "whoever we're investigating knows what we're doing before we do it," and all the recent attempts to fold, spindle and mutilate the series regulars. Mark is on board with that, arguing that someone has to let the tattooed killers into the well-secured FBI building on April 29, and it makes sense that it's someone on the inside. I suspect Agent Vreede. You heard me call it here first.
