Our heroes are on the train, with Astrid asking Walter about leaving William Bell behind. "You remember what he did to Olivia. Even you can't be that compassionate," he growls. She says they need him and starts to ask about getting access to something, but he cuts her off, saying he's got everything they need. He opens his satchel and pulls out a small LP-sized section of amber that contains a human hand, severed at the wrist. Ugh! You can see the bones and everything! So his little device was a laser-cutter, I suppose. Astrid looks horrified, because COME ON.
Etta's looking out the train's rear window, and we finally see the object on the chain around her neck that she's been fingering for the entire episode; it's a bullet, with a dent in it. And up from behind her comes Peter, who we see for the first time. He says he's sorry about her friend and he promises that they'll do everything they can to get him back.
She smiles and nods, and continues to stare at him. She opens her mouth, eyes shining, and it takes her a moment before she can speak and she finally says. "Do you... know me?" Peter says he doesn't know how he could: "I've been stuck in that amber for over twenty years. You barely look old enough..." And then it hits him. "Henrietta?" he says, after a moment, reaching out to touch her cheek. "Hi, Dad," she says, and they embrace. Jesus, good thing he figured that out before he tried to hit on her.
