"There was a struggle here," says Astrid. Bit of an understatement, from the looks of things. Olivia gets off the phone and orders some lackey to get security camera footage.
Meanwhile, Peter's strapped down like Henry was, with Mr. Scowly readying his machine and nasal implants, Peter protesting that Mr. Scowly has the wrong guy. This time, we actually get to watch the excruciating insertion of the nasal probe. Peter sounds like he's being eviscerated. Mr. Scowly screws in his earphone and says, "You have something I need. Tell me where it is." Scowly asks, "What's the most pain you've ever felt in your life?" and then cranks a dial, and whatever the answer to that question might have been, I think Peter's got a new one.
Olivia's got a picture taken from the security camera -- one of those cameras that take ridiculously grainy pictures that are about as easy to read as ultrasounds -- and shows Walter a picture of Mr. Scowly outside the lab. Walter, showing off what a genius he is, thinks something bad has happened. Olivia says they think this guy abducted Peter. Walter's worried that Peter will lead Scowly to the thing. Also, he COULD HURT HIM, Walter! "Did you tell him where you put it?" asks Olivia. "No, of course not. I don't need to," says Walter.
Scowly asks Peter where the cylinder is. Peter says he has no idea, and wouldn't tell Scowly even if he did. Just because the guy's strapped you down and is inflicting incredible pain is no reason to be a jerk, Peter. Scowly cocks his head, listening. "But you just did tell me. Your father hid it, but you don't know where." Peter manages to convey "huh?" along with "OHMIGOD THIS HURTS" and Scowly says, "And yes, to answer your question, when this is over, I just might kill you. Depends on a few things." Then he asks Scowly when the last time his father kissed him was. "I think that's your lamest question yet," says Peter, which prompts Scowly to crank a dial again. Peter looks like he's simultaneously passing a kidney stone, delivering a baby, and having his urethra cleaned with a toothbrush. And not even a soft toothbrush, but one of the hard ones with knobby rubber things. And it's kind of stiff from old toothpaste, too. Whatever Scowly did, it seems to do the trick, as he says "Good," and then tells Peter to think of a happy time with his father, before his father went to the institution. "A time when you still believed that your father loved you." More pain from Peter, and then Scowly appears to push a button and ease it. "Aside from the car and your old house, did your father have any other hiding places?" Peter's eyes have rolled up back in his head like a cartoon character hit with a frying pan. Scowly's in the midst of yelling the question again when he stops, listens. "Thank you. You just told me where the cylinder is."
