That's good news, because Peter, Olivia and Astrid all look completely baffled, as they watch Walter waltz around the floor. And then, after Walter says, "And step out..." the screen goes black. They pop the tape, but it doesn't look damaged -- no grinding or flecks of amber. "Maybe they just stopped recording," suggests Astrid. Olivia says this doesn't make any sense: "If Walter's gone to retrieve whatever it is that's in this 'pocket universe,' then why would he go alone?" she says. Peter acknowledges that it's not really like Walter, although Peter might be careful about commenting on people doing things that are out of character.
Speaking of Walter, he's still wandering around the pocket universe, looking down dim hallways and strolling through skylit -- yet still shadowy -- courtyards. There's a hole in the floor that turns out to have another corridor, but the axis has been tilted, Inception-style. "Not that way," Walter whispers and keeps walking. Suddenly he spots a person -- impossible to make any features, due to the bright light coming in through the window directly behind him -- and Walter ducks around a corner. Then he peeks back out -- the person is still there, but then he (it looks like a man) turns and walks down another hallway. Relieved, Walter withdraws back around the corner -- only to be grabbed by some guy! Is this the end of Walter Bishop?
After the commercial, a frightened Walter asks the guy -- who has not strangled Walter in the interim -- if he's Donald, and the guy says his name is Cecil. "How did you get here? Do you know how to get out of here?" he asks Walter. He's got a screwdriver or something pressed against Walter's neck. Walter says he does know but Cecil never will if he keeps threatening him.
Cecil relinquishes his hold on Walter and the two men step back from each other. Walter asks how Cecil ended up here. Cecil says he was in one of the apartments and the Resistance must have been in the area, because the "invaders" hit the whole block with light bombs. "The last thing I remember was a flash. And then I woke up here," he says. Walter figures the force of the explosion of the light bombs must have blown him in here and likely saved his life. "When did this happen?" he asks, and Cecil says it was five days ago, which is perplexing to Walter since there's no food or water here. "There's water," says Cecil, who then balks at showing Walter where it is, because, "It's mine." Walter takes a step forward and menacingly tells Cecil that if he ever hopes to get out of there, he'll show Walter where it is.
