The caption asserts that we are in Tanarak Island, Alaska. It looks like the forests outside the Vancouver studio to me, but at least it's the Pacific Northwest. A woman gets pulled over by police as her voiceover tells us she's alone. The voiceover continues on someone's voicemail as the recipient plays it for Winston at the Firm's office.
The woman in Alaska is Dr. Jessica Shaw, and she claims to the policeman that she needs to get to the mainland to perform an emergency appendectomy. He finds a dead body in the back of her vehicle, which doesn't worry him as much as you'd think. She explains that it's Hank Benson and she's taking him to get autopsied. The cop says "The company won't like that." Meanwhile, the woman in Winston's office turns out to be Mrs. Shaw, Dr. Shaw's mother. So I'll be calling Dr. Shaw "Jessica" to keep it straight. Mrs. Shaw explains that Jessica has been a doctor in a variety of war zones but now she needs real help and can't trust anyone. Winston tries to explain that they've never done any work in that part of the world, but Mrs. Shaw says that Detective Whoever (who referred her to them) said that they're the best. This whole time, goons have been strolling up the road toward Jessica's car. Mrs. Shaw insists that Jessica isn't lost, no matter what the police claim. Just then (or whenever; I don't think these two scenes happen at the same time) Jessica floors it and roars down the road.
Goons and cops get back in their cars and give chase. Chase scene! A short one, though, because another car blocks the road in front of Jessica. She goes off the road and down a big hill. Or small mountain. She seems in control for a while, but her truck rolls a bit at the end. The goons stare down the incline and one of them says "Get down there. I want bodies. Both of them."
Chance gets the download from Winston. "The company" is Agrius Industries, which made 16.2 billion in sales last year. In addition to biotech and engineering, they've got a small mining operation in Tanarak. And just after Jessica disappeared, Agrius announced that they were going to be doing a lot of blasting on Tanarak and needed to shut the island down to all visitors. Chance wonders why they're doing all this just to harass a small country doctor, and Winston relays Mrs. Shaw's belief that it has to do with trying to prevent Hank Benson's autopsy. And they're going to a tiny island, which is connected to the mainland by a tiny road. Chance asks if Guerrero is "on it" and Winston glowers at the idea of Guerrero in his office. Either this episode was supposed to air earlier or Winston's attitude toward Guerrero is just all over the place. I mean, I keep trying to put the episodes in order in my head so we have a clean progression from his loathing of Guerrero in the first episode to the way he sometimes accepts and even welcomes him. But there's a chance it's just inconsistent.
