Olivia agrees, and then there's an awkward pause, and she haltingly starts into what sounds like she's thanking him for saving her life, and he says "You're welcome," and it sort of seemed to me that Olivia ignored Peter's warnings and just managed not to die. But Peter's not going to quibble, I imagine. She says she'll send someone for him in the morning.
And Peter's back at his place, irritatedly answering a persist rapping at his front door. He's very surprised to find Walter there, and even more surprised when Walter wants to come in. After a drink of water, he tells Peter that his mother -- every version of her -- was a wonderful woman. Peter figures out immediately that Elizabeth came to see Walter, who stammers about how he's lost the people he loved the most, and he imagines Peter misses the ones he's left behind. "I'll help you, Peter. I will help you get home," he says. Walter talks about little bit more about learning and loss, and Peter tries to hide a smile before Walter asks him to explain. "I just spent the last several days with the other Walter, and I was very surprised to learn that he's not the man that I thought he was. But I am not all surprised to learn that you are," says Peter, and poor Walter has to ask if that's a good thing. (It is.) Walter smiles. Then he looks around. "You know, I used to live here," he says, and Peter smiles again.
Elsewhere, wherever Jones is. Some dark, dank hideout. He types, on an old orange-type-on-black-screen computer, "Phase One complete. Where do we stand on Phase Two?" The response comes back: "In due time. We're working on her. She'll be ready soon." And who does the response come from? Nina Sharp. Yes, we know she's evil too! Get on with it!
