Across the room, Simon watches them. He's in turn approached by Walter, looking like he wants to say something, but then he stops, unsure. Simon looks at him, and then the two of them nod slightly.
Some time later, Olivia walks Simon to the front porch of his cabin, and thanks him. Then it's time for Olivia to dispense some advice about this guy she just met: "It doesn't have to be like this, you know? Living out here the way that you do. I guess what I'm trying to say is that you should go and talk to the girl." Simon repeats that we're not supposed to know what others think, so she tries telling him to not let his ability stop him from living his life.
He looks at her for a while, nods, and then takes out an envelope. "I may not be able to read your mind, but I read his. This is what it's like to be me," he says, giving it to her and then going inside. Oh, that does not sound good. Olivia turns the envelope over in her hands, and then turns to go.
The next day, I suppose, we're in Nina's office as she looks at the various copies of The First People books that she has, and then gasps "No!" as she looks at the name on a spine and realizes something. Taking out a pad of paper, she writes down the names of one of the authors -- M. Weiselauss, Seamus Wiles is another -- and starts anagramming it. Hey, it's kinda like the end of The Usual Suspects!
And then we're at the bowling alley, where a push broom glides along the floor and hits Nina's feet. Sam Weiss, aka Samuel Weiss, aka M. Weiselauss, aka Seamus Wiles, looks up at Nina. "I can see you didn't bring your bowling shoes. That's gonna be a problem if you intend to break a hundred," he jokes. Good god, has he slept with her too?
Nina wants him to tell her about The First People: "Start with why those books seem to indicate that you wrote them, then move on to what the device is intended for." "So you found it," he says, and she crabs that he never told her about it. In his defence, he says Peter's her problem, not him: "That device can either be used as at tool of creation or as a weapon of destruction. Depends on your point of view. And Peter Bishop is uniquely tuned to operate it. Whatever frequency Peter's vibrating at will determine how the machine reacts."
