Apparently the sight of the big Capitol dome in this aerial shot over the Potomac makes floaty letters reading "WASHINGTON D.C." unnecessary. Inside one of any number of possible locations in that city, Broyles is briefing a small army of FBI agents about the human bomb they're searching for in the District. He adds that three of the four remaining Tin Man subjects are accounted for: Gillespie, the two schmoes who are now in protective custody, and Diane Burgess, about whom all they know is that she came to D.C. (this over shots of Diane Burgess's husband answering his front door to a couple of very serious-looking agents and then talking with then at his kitchen table). That's really all they know, but somehow Broyles manages to make the little they've been able to do to prevent this sound kind of impressive. Broyles gives the floor to Olivia, who explains that there is probably a "second suspect" controlling the detonation remotely, and they think it's Colonel Gordon. Since his ID photo is of the creepy colonel who's been freaking us out all episode, they seem to be on the right track. Especially since the Pentagon says Gordon went rogue six months ago. We see the Bishops standing in the back of the room (Walter nuzzling a frosted donut, in his tireless quest to reach the same weight as Gene) as she adds that they might be able to jam the triggering signal. She also adds that Diane Burgess might be unaware of her function as a human bomb, "Which means she is also a potential victim here. We're going to do everything that we can to get her back to her family alive." Just then, an agent who picked up a phone during the briefing says something to Broyles, who announces that Diane Burgess has just gotten into a cab to the Federal Center Metro station. "We have time to set up before she arrives." Well, that was a lucky break. Broyles get an early start on setting up the next sequence: "Our objectives are as follows: prevent the detonation of Diane Burgess, and apprehend Colonel Raymond Gordon."
