Matt's chief comes in and asks how Matt knew which one was the bad guy and Matt blathers something about looking him in the eye and the chief is all, "Yeah, personally? I woulda picked the guy with the gun beneath his shirt." Well, YEAH. But I'm certainly hoping that this exercise wasn't that pedestrian, chief. Even I know that the bad guy is the one with the gun! The chief tells Matt that he's on the team -- he's officially part of the NYPD.
Back with Claire, she's in science class, looking on with envy as a hot cheerleader takes a seat up ahead. To staunch her feelings of inadequacy, Claire does what any teenager would do: she holds her hand over the Bunsen burner flame until her flesh starts bubbling. She's prevented from burning a hole clean through her hand by Hottie McDriverton from earlier in the day. He asks her if she has a death wish and she says she was just seeing how hot the flame is. He snarkily reminds her that it's a flame, so he's pretty sure it's hot, and goes on to rather snottily give her shit for walking in front of his car earlier. He may be cute, but he's actually kind of a dick. He introduces himself as "West" and asks her what she is and she's like, "The world's cutest regenerating ex-cheerleader?"
He goes on to ask her if she's one of "them" or one of the "others" and she totally thinks he's talking about her powers, of course, but he isn't, he's asking if she's one of the vapid popularity-seekers that surround them, or is she a free-thinking individual with a mind of her own? Claire doesn't give him an answer, instead just throwing the question back at him. The teacher puts a quote up on the board about survival of the species and asks to whom it's attributed. The classroom is overrun with tumbleweeds. Claire jots down "Charles Darwin" in her notebook, but doesn't say anything because she remembers what her father said about not standing out. West sees this and immediately makes a snap judgment that Claire is one of the "robots" instead of one of the "aliens." I have no idea what he's talking about, but for someone who claims to only be interested in befriending free-thinking individuals, he sure makes a lot of judgment calls, no?
Honduras. The Wonder Twins are making their way toward a covered truck. Two greasy coyote guys get out and tell Alejandro that the trip to Sonora, which is 600 miles from the American border, will cost them 10,000 lempiras. Alejandro pulls out the money and Coyote Ugly Numero Uno asks if they're married. Alejandro says they're siblings and CUNO tells him that's even better; she can ride up front with him. Alejandro says that his sister stays with him and that they'll ride in back. They'll squeeze in between the other twenty people back there who want to live in America for some insane reason.
