Frank walks into the interrogation room. John says he assumes they have an audience. Frank doesn’t answer, but the camera pulls out to reveal that Ruiz is watching through the one-way mirror. Frank says that Ruiz wants John to be held, and John thinks that's ridiculous because he can find Pesco. Meanwhile, Ruiz hangs up a cell phone and slips it into his coat pocket. The coat is hanging over a chair nearby. This is important in a minute. Frank asks John why he wasn't told about the brand. John says they might be part of some genetic anomaly or a group, or it could be a hoax. Frank considers his words and then says, "For future reference, John, we're friends. It's okay to open up once in a while." Frank adds that he doesn't know if he would have understood, but he would have tried to. John understands. Ruiz walks in and tells Frank that they're making headway on the footprint analysis. Frank suggests they bring John along, but Ruiz isn't having it. Frank gives John a look like, "Sorry, dude," and walks out. John surveys the room. He picks up a pen from the desk and bends the metal part off the cap. He walks over to a light switch and removes the plate. He sticks the metal thing inside, sparks fly, and the lights go out. Two cops standing outside rush into the room. John is gone. They shine flashlights up to the ceiling, where a tile has been moved, and conclude that he's up there. They run out of the room. The camera pans down to reveal that John was actually wedged under the table. He drops to the floor. My biggest problem with this scene was that Frank had barely left the room when John pulled his stunt. Surely, he would have run back in.
One of the cops runs up and informs Ruiz that John has escaped. Ruiz is pissed. Frank and Stu exchange amused looks. Love that Stu. The cop adds that they think John took Ruiz's jacket and cell phone. I told you that would be important in a minute. Cut to John walking into the elevator wearing Ruiz's police jacket. He bumps into a lady standing nearby who tells him, "Hey, watch it, Officer." John steps into the elevator and says, "Sorry about that. And it's 'Captain.'" I totally thought that was a throwaway scene, but it also comes up again later.
John meets up with Digger on the upper level of the bar. Digger says that running from the law is one of his favorite pastimes. John says he has to find Lt. Bosslady, because her kidnapping is all his fault. Digger tells him to slow down and stop feeling guilty. John can't help it. Digger says they need to act, not feel. John doesn't want Digger to get involved, but he insists. John relents and says they have to retrace Pesco's steps from the beginning by going back to the sewer. Digger says he'll grab his keys and meet John out back. He also advises John to stay in the shadows.
