After Emily and her father go inside, Olivia tells Lincoln that she wants him to run a background check on the Mallums. What's the point of that? Obviously Mallum is a fake name, so -- what's that? The father, despite being paranoid about shadowy government figures harassing his family, lied about knowing Emily, but gave his real name to the FBI agents? Yeah, that makes no sense. Anyway, Olivia says she's got a visit of her own to make, and we can probably guess where that is.
Inside, Jim tells his daughter that she did the right thing out there, because if it's happening again, no one can know, or they're all at risk. Emily tells her dad that she saw something awful, on the bus. More awful than what one can regularly see on the bus? Oh, about death and whatnot. Jim seems to get that it's bothering her daughter, but he says she knows how it works, that even if she told them, it wouldn't make a difference. "Remember what they did to you when we tried to help before?" he says, adding that it's better this way.
Olivia's gone to visit Nina Sharp at work. Nina's delighted to see her, at least until Olivia gets right to it and says Emily Mallum's father said Massive Dynamic has been harassing them. "Are you asking me a question, or are you accusing me of something?" asks Nina, a little surprised. Can't it be both? Olivia says she thought Massive Dynamic was done using children as test subjects. Nina says they are, and tries to outline the difference between "testing" and simply "studying" since Emily's precog abilities would have let them make drastic advances in their study of the human brain, but Emily's father wasn't interested, even when Massive Dynamic offered to pay for her schooling.
