Over at Olivia's place, Ella has gotten into her aunt's makeup and painting supplies, which is the only way I can explain the huge swatches of purple adorning her eyelids. "Look, Aunt Liv, I'm beautiful!" she says as Olivia comes in. Rachel comes in to take off the strands of pearls and jewelry that Ella also has on, and apologizes to Olivia, who laughs and says it's fine. Olivia starts to reminisce about a sleepover and Aunt Missy's pouring perfume all over a dog named Roxy.
Rachel's not super interested, because she's confused about finding a diamond ring with "ALWAYS" inscribed on the inside. "Is this Mom's?" she says. Liv hesitantly admits that it was from John, and I gather Rachel was aware he and Olivia weren't together anymore, but that seems to be all she knows at this point. Not that Olivia is overly eager to share, so Rachel has to point out that they're sisters and Olivia knows every detail of her sister's failed marriage.
Possibly so she doesn't have to hear those details again, Olivia says, "He was a traitor. The people he was working for, I still don't even know who they were." She says whatever was between her and John was a lie, and he only wanted to gain her trust so she wouldn't see him for what he was. Rachel says she's sorry, and then Olivia's cellphone starts ringing. "And I thought Greg was a jerk," says Rachel, and Olivia says, "Greg IS a jerk," before answering her phone. She listens for a moment, then says, "Where?"
Broyles leads the Fringe team over the crash site, featuring many bodies laid out under tarps. "Witnesses say the plane just fell out of the sky," says Broyles, and I'm wondering exactly how these witnesses EXPECT a plane to crash, and Broyles says they'll know more when they recover the black box.
The reason the Fringe team is there has to do with what Broyles is about to show them, which investigators thought was an animal at first. It's a smouldering mass of spines. Walter crouches down to examine it, saying it has the pelage of an animal. "And yet..." he flips the heap over, revealing a charred humanoid underneath, making the Fringe team gag, except for Walter, who says, "I will say this: Our friend here didn't start out this way."
