Chez Bishop. After his complaints about Walter not wanting to sleep in his own bedroom, Peter's sleeping on the couch again. I guess that's so we Walter can wake him without the production having to build a bedroom set for him. Peter starts awake and turns on the lamp, wondering what time it is. Instead of answering, Walter starts talking about how much he wants his independence back. "Not to have my son watching after me all the time. Not that I don't appreciate all that you do for me. That's not the way it's supposed to be." He says he's been out for a year, and is still worried about getting lost. "So I have implanted a tracking device in my neck." He turns to show Peter a bandage there on the left side. "You did what?" Peter says, as though this is surprising, and sighs in exasperation. Walter gives Peter the little remote that goes with it and leaves him to get back to sleep. As he goes, and as they exchange goodnights, a soft but rapid beeping can be heard, and it slows down as Walter moves away. Concerns about what might happen if bad guys get a hold of that transponder will have to wait for a future episode. Peter smiles to himself, because at least he's not the one who ended the episode with a foreign body inside of him.
