Meanwhile, Peter has made his way into the gas station and heads to the back -- past rows of potato chips, including Miss Vickie's lime and black pepper, which I love and haven't seen in local stores in AGES, to the bathroom. Which is empty. He goes back to the cash register and asks the barely sentient clerk about the tall, blonde "girl" who came in a couple of minutes ago, but the clerk says he didn't see her.
Peter furrows his brow and heads outside. Note the poster for Slusho! (Bet you can't drink just six!) in the window. He looks around perplexed. Where's Olivia?
She's coming to, groggily, in some sort of dank basement, tied to a chair. Someone's calling her name, barely penetrating her consciousness. As she recovers, she realizes it's Nina, who's tied to a chair opposite her. "We're gonna be OK," says Nina. Then she says it again. It'd probably be a little more reassuring if they weren't, you know, tied to chairs in some dank basement somewhere. Olivia hangs her head, and Nina doesn't actually look too optimistic either.
And we're out! So -- the Olivia-migraine-inducing is an evil shapeshifter, right? And this is Peter's Olivia who ... was somehow kidnapped from the gas station without anyone seeing anything, right? Thank god this isn't the "midwinter-finale" or some bullshit where we don't get another episode for three months.
