In something that looks like an office, Cooperton goes over Mike's cover's details. They trade military talk for a while until Mike passes a test of some sort by knowing that the 337th was in South Korea, not Iraq. Cooperton goes on about freedom. "Live free or die. That... is.... America." Well, New Hampshire. Mike acts like he's into it, and that seems to be all Cooperton needs.
Next, Michael sits in an outhouse and digs his ear thingy out of his calf using a key. They couldn't have put a small knifeblade on his keyring? That would be totally in-character. [I'm actually surprised they gave him back his keys, so I guess a keyring with a knife on it wouldn't be beyond the logic of this show. Or maybe it's the outhouse key? - Z] After wiping the thingy off on his jeans (because hygiene is important!), he sticks the thingy back in his ear and chats with KITT. The plan is to do recon tonight. And when the conversation's over, Mike leaves the outhouse only to see the blonde, wondering who he's talking to. They have a weird conversation where she accuses him of being PTSD, he says she's hearing voices, and he accuses her of liking to hurt people. "Why?" she says. "You wanna get hurt?" She takes a swing at him, which he dodges. Then he punches her in the face, which you don't see that often. After a bit of fighting, he gets the upper hand. He doesn't do anything to make her less suspicious. In fact, as Mike walks away, KITT asks if he thinks she bought it. "We'll find out," says Mike. She's right there! Six feet away! You could at least make up some nonsense about "subvocalizing" or something!
In the rec room (the basketball court, but with some pads on the floor), Zoe orders Billy to hit her. Man, there's a lot of woman-hitting in this episode. Not in this particular scene, though, because Billy's useless. Also, he's leery about hitting a woman. Zoe does the standard line about how he won't be hitting her; he'll just be trying to. Then she calls him a bitch, which gets him all riled up. One flaily swing by Billy later, he's on the floor with Zoe straddling him, leaning on his throat, and lecturing him about combat techniques. [And he looks like he would have been happy with any two of those three things, as long as one of them was Zoe straddling him. - Z]
