Nina, the Massive Dynamic exec, is rushed to the hospital. She has been shot. When she awakens she tells Dunham that is was that multi-named escaped fiend, David Robert Jones whodunit. Adding insult to injury, he swiped an energy cell from her fake arm. That's just rude. Turns out Jones used to work at Massive Dynamic, which sort of explains why he seems to know everything. I assume I don't need to mention that he was fired. For being evil! His evil doing is going to be brought to new heights since he swiped the energy cell. First up? Standing in the middle of a street and disappearing half a truck. And by disappearing I mean "the window closed" taking half the semi with it and leaving the other half in the middle of the street to confound the FBI team. Also, the truck doesn't appear to exist. That has got to be annoying. Then Jones decides to up his evil cred and takes half a kid with him when he drops his magical window in the middle of a soccer game. I wonder how the FBI explains that to the kid's parents. Olivia gets to work. He can't go around halving children and think he can get away with it. Not on her watch.
Meanwhile, Walter is missing, but no one can figure out whether or not to be concerned. Walter is in a cemetery with the bald white guy (think less Mike Chiklis, more Powder) who seems to be helping Walter remember something he has forgotten. Walter ends up at his beach house and Peter shows up looking for him. Walter still can't remember what it is he wants to remember. But in the house he finds some magical, I mean, scientific, device that can be used to cross over into an alternate world. Yes, that's where this show is going: alternate worlds. Walter explains that he crossed over seeking something important that he loved and lost. He says that if you want to cross over you have to find the right location or "soft spot." Now that he has this gizmo, they can. The team rushes off to find the soft spot where they can cross over into the other world.
They find the soft spot at the same time as David Robert Jones. They face off, with Olivia getting a good shot in, but it doesn't stop Jones. The Good Guys win (yay!) when Peter uses Walter's gizmo to close off the portal, cutting Jones in half. I would say good riddance, but somehow I am convinced he is not really dead. Being cut in half seems a small obstacle to continuing your contract on this show.
Olivia has been instructed to stop all investigation into William Bell. But when Nina calls with instructions to meet her so she can arrange a visit with Bell in the alternate reality where he is currently residing, she leaps at the chance. It looks like Nina is standing her up, but when Olivia leaves in a huff, the elevator ride takes her to this alternate world where the World Trade Center towers are still standing and Leonard Nimoy is William Bell.
To Peter's delight, Walter leaves him a note before he goes on a little adventure. Where's he headed? Back to the cemetery and he is very sad. He leaves a special coin on the headstone. The headstone reads "Peter Bishop 1978-1985." Zoinks! I see dead people!
The paramedics rush someone in to the ER. The paramedics on this show are much less attractive, I mean, much more realistic than they ever were on ER, which is kind of funny for a show that is soooo not realistic. I mean, as far as this reality is concerned. The doctor asks about breath sounds and some other medically stuff, but the paramedic wants to get done with the small talk because he has something much more interesting to show her. He pulls back a blood-soaked blanket to reveal a highly futuristic bionic arm. The camera pans up to reveal that the victim is Nina Sharp, the de facto head of Massive Dynamic. What sort of crap bionic arm can't deflect bullets? If that's the future in this reality, I'd rather go live in the parallel universe where Wonder Woman exists.
Agent Dunham gets the briefing on Nina's shooting. Agent Francis is already cueing up the security footage. They watch as three men, one heavily wrapped in bandages, the others masked, walk in, shoot the guard and then wait until Nina arrives. They surround her, and the tape goes blank for four minutes and then they walk out leaving Nina on the floor of the elevator. Quick question: if you have the ability to delete the security tape, why not do the whole thing? The FBI is more concerned with what the masked men did to Nina that they didn't want anyone seeing. The boss, Broyles, helpfully points out that whatever it was they did it in only four minutes. Like is this one of those firing up situations? Because that was an incredibly dumb thing to say. More helpfully, Olivia asks them to enhance what the bandaged guy said. They enhance it and then run it through voice recognition. The man in question? David Robert Jones, the man so nice they named him twice. You remember him, right? The Hannibal Lecter-channeler from the prison in Germany who broke his attorney's neck for a suit of clothes and then beamed away to annoy Olivia? Yeah that guy is wearing a mummy's-worth of bandages and sunglasses, and a fedora, because if you're going to go for the Invisible Man look, you might as well own it. Olivia doesn't understand why he's wearing the bandages, either, which is somewhat reassuring. At the sight of David Robert Jones she insists that Broyles let her bring in William Bell for questioning. They have good evidence that he is funding the activities of ZFT and many of the acts have been carried out by David Robert Jones. Even William Bell is not above the law! She almost stamps her foot, but Broyles stops her. He agrees with her, but would like it if she would stop cutting him off before he can agree with her. She smiles wanly, glad that she didn't make too much of an ass out of herself.
