Olivia raises the possibility of organ harvest, but Peter pops in with a basket of pharmaceuticals that punctures that theory. "OK, so you wouldn't steal a heart from someone this sick if you were selling it," says Olivia. No, because that would be unethical? Huh? Anyway, Broyles dispatches Olivia and Peter to talk to the prescribing physician, a Dr. Alexandra Ross, while he arranges to have the body transferred to Walter's lab. For Walter, getting a dead body delivered is like Christmas.
So Peter and Olivia are over at the hospital, where Dr. Ross is still in surgery, which is great, because now they have plenty of time to talk. And what better place than a hospital cafeteria to tell the woman you're in love with that you'd been sleeping with the alternate-universe version of her? First, though, he points out the coffee she's drinking is "swill," and instead of pointing out that he appears to be drinking the exact same swill, she just says it's nice to take a cup of coffee for granted.
And then she says it's like how when you come back from a vacation that some things are "a revelation, like coffee or my favorite shoes," like what in god's name are you blathering about, and then she says other things are not as good: "My mail was opened. It's kind of disconcerting knowing that somebody else has been living your life."
Then she notices Peter looking all uncomfortable, and she asks him what's up, and I think it's that he thought she said, "My male was opened," but then it turns out that he figures that while she's lamenting Fauxlivia living Olivia's life is a good time for him to bring up the sex. But first he's going to endlessly go on about the slight changes that he says he noticed. Such as? "She's much quicker with a smile, and less, I don't know, less intense maybe," he says. Yeah, keep it up, Peter. No way this could make Olivia feel worse about the situation. Anyway, Olivia tries to comfort him by saying there's no way he could have known. Olivia, you may want to let him finish. "When you asked me to come back to this world with you, you said..." he starts, and she finishes, "...that you belonged with me," and she smiles, and then it's really something to watch her smile fade as Peter explains that when Fauxlivia came back, they started seeing each other. "And I explained away the differences because our relationship was different. I thought she was you, Olivia." Still OK with it, Olivia? She quietly asks if everyone knows, and he says he reported everything when he found out who she was. And he thought it best to write up a short piece for the FBI employee monthly newsletter. Rob Thomas, I hope you're watching sir. Because THIS, sir, this is how a heart breaks. Anna Torv kills it. And I'm enjoying the various camps regarding Anna Torv's acting, there's the "I always knew she was good" crowd, of which I am a member (although I think she's graduated to great this season), there's the "I didn't like her but I was wrong" crowd, and there's the "I didn't like her and I stand by that but now she is good" crowd. That last bunch? You belong in the second bunch.
