Back at the Frankfurt airport, Olivia walks with Lucas. "So close," she says. He tells her she never did lose well, and she half-laughs. Then he asks her what happened: "There's something that has ... shifted in you. Something's happened." She tells him that a lot has happened. It's been a strange time. Then, instead of asking more questions, he starts hitting on her: "I have become -- and I'm not kidding -- a spectacular cook." She laughs. "Spend the night," he says. She smiles, and then gets serious and says, "I can't, Lucas." "Of course you can. Of course you can," he says. He moves a little closer, and she's thinking about it. Then her cellphone rings. Why, it's Peter! You little cockblocker, you! He's driving, frantically, and asks her if David Jones knows that Joseph Smith is dead. Olivia says he doesn't. "'Cause if you can still get in to see him tomorrow, he may not have to," says Peter.
So, presumably without too much bureaucratic difficulty, this dead guy is being wheeled into the Harvard lab, to go with the FBI agent with his chest ripped open to reveal the parasite wrapped around his heart. Not to mention the cow. Walter, in his own scatterbrained way, gives instructions to the Fringe team. Astrid's putting salt water in the trough: "Ninety kilograms, not a drop more," Walter reminds her. Then he unzips the bodybag and is quite chagrined to see that Smith has been shot in the head. Peter asks if that's a problem. "Of course it's a problem! A bullet in the head would normally indicate significant brain trauma!" says Walter. Peter snaps that he's never had a conversation with a dead guy before: "Forgive me if I don't know the rules!" Astrid asks if this is going to work. I think I can answer that question: It seems unlikely, and you guys will run into some problems, and Walter will correct on the fly, and then it'll work! But for now, Walter merely says he'll have to alter the procedure.
