Nearby, Lincoln Lee and Peter are going through Dana's stuff -- including books and a cash receipt from a flower shop -- but not finding much to tell them where they might find her. Then Lee notices that all the books are clinical except for The Afterlife of the Soul, a religious text. Flipping it open, Peter finds several highlighted passages on each page. "All the highlighted passages are about what happens to us after we die," says Peter. Yeah, uh, that's what the whole book's about. Nice work, FBI civilian genius. Lee jokes that maybe she's trying to convince people to jump by telling them how great heaven's going to be, but Peter finally hits upon the notion that maybe she's the one who wants to die, and I'm kind of surprised it took them this long to come up with that. Survivor guilt isn't exactly an obscure concept, and her family was murdered.
Anyway, Bell and Walter are grooming Gene and seemingly seriously considering the logistics of transferring Bell's consciousness into the cow. "We could communicate through my brainwaves. You would hook me up to an EEG machine and decipher my thoughts," says Bell, because why not make things more complicated? Walter says he'd still have to milk him, and Bell suggests assigning Astrid, and they both start snickering, and I have to say Astrid deserves a little better from these disgusting old men.
Peter tries to interrupt, but Walter says they're too busy sexually objectifying a co-worker, and Peter plows on anyway and asks if Dana Gray's double-lightning strike could account for her hyper-magnetism. Bell says the ions due to the multiple lightning strikes could cause her molecules to be supercharged, with Walter adding that could yes, intensify the electromagnetism, and Peter presents his theory that Dana's trying to die, not live forever. And then Lincoln Lee sees on his phone that Dana's description just went out over the police bulletin in Rochester: somebody spotted her. So Peter and his new best friend are off.
Over at Brian's house, Lee shows a picture of Dana to the landlady, asking if she's sure that's the woman she saw leaving the apartment. "Like I already told the police, I was making dinner when I heard the gunshot. I came out into the hall, and I saw that woman leaving," she says and then asks if the woman killed Brian. Lee says he can't comment on an ongoing investigation, and then the landlady weirdly gives him attitude about how he's the only one who gets to ask questions, and he manages to sincerely thank her for her co-operation.
