After the commercial break, Olivia and Peter are trying to figure out how to help the emotionless time-travelling dude trapped by the "stasis runes" at his feet. Peter has called EMTs and I would really like to see them attend to this guy. Peter asks about the runes, which spark when he touches them. September admits to being surprised that "they" (maybe Bell's crew or any humans in general) knew of the methodology, which is beyond them. Apparently it's not beyond them, actually. Peter grabs a piece of wood, the kind that is usually just lying around empty warehouses and scrapes away at the runes. He only has to obliterate a bit of it before it loses power and September is able to fall from his standing position and let Olivia check his wound. Peter asks if he knows where Walter is. September thinks for a moment, but then says he doesn't know.
Then Olivia says, "At least now we know how you got shot." September looks confused as Olivia talks about how he came to her at the opera house and said that in every version of the future, she would have to die. September says the conversation she's referring to hasn't happened yet for her, but he'll investigate the future and find out what he meant. He stands up and says he hopes he gets back to her in time. With the sirens in the distance getting louder, he turns and walks away -- and vanishes.
Olivia wastes not a second before turning back to Peter and asking what they should do about finding Walter, because their only lead is dead. As Jack Bauer would put it, "Dammit! That was our only lead!" Peter says that doesn't mean they can't still question her.
And then we're in the Harvard lab, with Jessica's torso plugged full of cords and wires, with Peter directing Olivia and correcting her by explaining that she needs another one "right in the thinker" and tapping his temple. And that's where Olivia injects a needle full of science potion. "That wasn't so bad, was it?" he asks her.
And Nina rolls in with technicians, skipping the small talk and asking how long Jessica has been dead. Peter tells her about twenty-five minutes and Nina tells her assistants to use the "negative prongs" first or else she'll short out. Also, they should start with a trickle of DC and let it calibrate. Nina looks at Jessica's corpse. "Pretty," she says. Yes she was, Olivia. Nina fires some sort of bolt into Jessica's temple and tells Peter there will come a time when she'll ask how Peter knew about this technology. Then she fires a gun into the other side to complete the Frankenstein look and tells Peter to maintain her body temperature at roughly eighty-five degrees.
