Then Samantha gets all sad-eyed and blubbery about not wanting Olivia to hurt her, while Olivia yells for Samantha to get down on the floor. A warning shot is probably in order, but Olivia just keeps yelling while Samantha edges closer and is finally near enough to grab Olivia's arms and start struggling with her. It's a brutal knockdown dragout that features Olivia at one point getting a candlestick across the head. As she tumbles over a coffeetable, both she and Samantha scrabble for their guns on the floor and each come up firing. Olivia hits Samantha dead centre in the middle of the forehead, so it's going to be a closed-casket funeral for Samantha, who crumples, dead, in a heap on the floor. Olivia looks in horror at the bullet hole in the coffeetable, just inches from her.
Back at Boston Federal Building, the whole gang is going over Mitchell's work station, but there's nothing there, nothing they can trace. "Loeb knew he was going to cut and run," says Olivia. Broyles wonders if there's a way to track Loeb's cellphone, and Charlie says tech services tried everything, but Peter has an idea. He asks if the agents surveilling the area have seen any sign of Loeb, and Charlie says they haven't. "He doesn't know about his wife," says Peter, meaning she could still contact him. And just when you think Peter's talking about a dead reanimation-type thing, he just means they need Samantha's cellphone. Charlie says he's on it, because he takes orders from civilians now. Broyles is getting a team together. Everybody got their jobs? OK, break! I mean, never mind that it must be HOURS since Loeb told his wife to kill Olivia and he still hasn't heard from her. This is a great plan. "Nice work," Olivia tells Peter. "Thanks," he says.
So Loeb, driving, gets a text message from Samantha telling him to go to Clark and Commons. Since the rule in movies and television is that you are never lucky enough to already be heading in the right direction when you are told to go somewhere, Loeb has to pull a U-turn.
Olivia, Peter and Walter wait in Olivia's SUV by the payphone, all the better to watch and get on each other's nerves. Walter tells Olivia, "Peter was really worried about you when you were gone," and Peter gets annoyed: "Of course I was worried," he says. "He was really worried," says Walter, which earns a smile from Olivia.
