After the commercial break, Olivia's still saddling up when she gets a call from an agitated Walter -- who becomes even more anxious when he can see via the amazing telephone that I'm sure is some sort of futuristic device that is not available today how banged up she is -- and lets her know that Peter showed up at the lab a couple of hours ago. "I tried to convince him. I said that his brain is being altered, and that soon it will be irreversible. But he won't hear me. I don't know what else to say," he says. Olivia turns the bullet over in her fingers and asks Walter if he knows where Peter is.
Peter is overlooking the square, searching the crowd of dreary grey people with their black umbrellas in the night. Olivia strolls up and says "Peter" like NICE HIDING PLACE, PETER and tells him that Walter filled her in about Windmark and how he almost killed Peter. But Peter says he's already turned that to his advantage: "See those steps down there? In a few minutes, if everything goes according to plan, Windmark will walk up those steps and pass that fountain. Then I will know that he has been reset onto the correct path. He does not realize it now, but he will be back on the trajectory that I want him on," says Peter. I'm not at all sure how Peter has turned almost dying into an advantage, and I also don't know what's different about what Peter's doing now that would mean Windmark isn't aware of Peter's manipulations this time, but I guess that's not really the point.
Olivia asks what trajectory that is, and Peter says it's the trajectory that leads to his death. Technically speaking, I think we're every one of us on that trajectory. Anyway, Peter says at 5:12 tomorrow afternoon, he'll meet Windmark, who won't be expecting it. "At 5:13, I will snap his neck. At 5:14, he will draw his last breath," says Peter. He plans assassinations like my wife plans vacations! I mean, with less killing, but the precision is the same.
Olivia's all, Yeeeahhh, that's great and all, but I've lost you once already over this, and I'm not gonna let that happen again. She admits Peter's thinking is way ahead of hers: "But the fact that I am here has got nothing to do with anything except feelings. And soon, you're not gonna be able to feel anything. Not for me, not for Etta."
Peter tells her about Windmark showing him Etta's last thoughts, and how they were of them, that day in the park before everything changed. Really nice job by Joshua Jackson here, I think -- he's very much in control but you can see there's a little bit of feeling left. "I will kill him tomorrow. If I remove the tech, I will not be able to do that," he says. Well, not with that attitude!
