Speaking of anything is possible, we cut to a couple of ne'er-do-wells climbing, hand over hand, up ropes along the side of a tall concrete-walled building, the Massachusetts Metal Depository, and then... hmm. This is odd. There are boots on some kind of concrete overhang. Not falling off, so they must be nailed on. The first guy to reach them flips around so he can slide his feet in, and then he zips the boots up and takes some tentative steps, upside down, as his partner makes his way to the second pair of boots and puts them on. And then they're interrupted by a security guard, and the camera flips around to reveal they're actually right-side up now. "Koenig! Come on!" yells the first guy, who's getting into a car, but the security guard has a gun out and yells, "Let me see your hands!" and then Koenig reaches for something, and the security guard fires, and some of Koenig's blood splatters out in front of him and floats in droplets, upward. Moments later, Koenig slides up out of his boots and drifts, lifeless, up the side of the building, until the rope, to which he's still tethered, arrests his ascent.
After the opening credits, we're in the Harvard engineering building, where Peter is running tests on the memory discs he "retrieved" from the shape-shifters. Not necessary to the audio recording he's dictating is how he retrieved them, I suppose. The memory discs, arrayed on a panel, look an awful lot like Space Invaders aliens. They're connected by glowing cables, and Peter tells everyone that the daisy-chain wiring pattern seems to have activated them somehow, revealing tons of previously undetected data. "Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea how the hell to read it," he says. His phone rings, and lets us all take a moment to admire the sleek product-placed phone that clearly identifies Olivia calling. He picks it up, and she teases him, saying that she thought he was going to sleep in, like WHY ARE YOU CALLING THEN, and he points that out more nicely than I did, and she explains that she woke up early and it's warm outside so there's this "great street fair on Memorial Drive" and Peter says, "You like a street fair?" whatever that's supposed to mean, and Olivia says she loves a good street fair: "And you're not so bad yourself." Ugh. Keep it to yourselves, guys... Which, upon reflection, I guess you are. Anyway, since he's on the way, she figured she'd pick him up, and he makes up a lie about getting up early and going to the gym, and she certainly wouldn't want to interrupt his workout, and he says he'll shower and meet her in fifteen minutes.
