"But you don't know that. That's what you're afraid is gonna happen," says Olivia, and in this it's not so different from anyone scared to ask someone out: "And so what if she's not interested or that there's somebody else on her mind or that she doesn't love you. I mean, isn't it better to know?" she says. Simon looks at her like she doesn't get it, and I suppose she doesn't, because Simon has a bit of an ethical problem with it: "No one should know exactly what someone else is thinking," he says. Olivia agrees in principle, and then overshares some of her personal life by saying she wouldn't mind having that ability right now. Then her gaze drifts down the hall to Peter, and Simon turns and looks at him too, tuning in a couple of his thoughts.
Over at Massive Dynamic, Nina tells Broyles, "Officially, Project Jellyfish never existed," and he's all, "You brought me all the way out here to tell me that?" rather grumpily for someone looking to get laid. Nina says no, and uses the intercom to tell her aide to send in Agent Edwards. The double-doors to her office swing open, and my first thought was, "Holy shit! Agent Edwards is hot!" but it's just one of those impossibly perfect human specimens that wander the halls of Massive Dynamic, looking great in sweaters and skirts. I imagine they live there, like Oompa Loompas at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Anyway, Agent Edwards is the spook coming in behind the aide. "I might have guessed that this involved the CIA," snorts Broyles. Edwards says it doesn't: "But Nina asked me to do some digging, and we both know that what Nina Sharp wants, she gets." Broyles slowly swivels his head back toward Nina with a look that clearly says, "Seriously? Him?" Nina gives nothing away, just folds her hands coyly. Edwards outlines the details of Jellyfish: a weapons project that had three men carry out the live field tests.
