In Washington, D.C., Kylie Sinclair bribes a guy whose boss she used to be (before Daddy apparently put her brother in charge) into giving her a little goodie package: a device that can be attached to a car for 20 seconds to set up a bug that picks up all hands-free calls, as well as another device that should remotely unlock the door of any vehicle built after 2008. Kylie thought he'd be the one getting into the car, but he says that a felony's out of her price range, so she dismisses him.
In the captain's quarters on the Colorado, Kendal meets with Chaplin, who remains obsessed with getting the key back, and plans to impose a curfew. That's the first thing I do whenever I misplace my keys. "Remember, your key is a target too," he warns Kendal. Kendal is still worried about morale, but Chaplin isn't worried about it despite Kendal's concerns.
Out at what is fast becoming a SEAL cemetery, Hopper (who's apparently well enough to dig now), tells King that the Navy is also burying people, namely the Black Ops team. Except there are only four graves. So they go right to the sub and King demands of Shepard where the fifth one is. Shepard says she'd know if there was an extra one, because the captain or XO would have told her. "You sure about that?" King asks.
So then Shepard visits the captain's quarters and asks if there were any survivors from the Black Ops team. Chaplin lies that there weren't and quickly turns the grilling around on her, asking if she knows how she ended up in his boat. She babbles about how she assumed it was at his request, then that maybe her father pulled strings. Without giving her anything back, Chaplin dismisses her and locks the door behind her. In the corridor, Shepard runs into Cortez and, in a foul mood, searches the backpack she's and finds some bottles of liquor inside, for a an impromptu party on the beach with some of the other female crew. Shepard reminds Cortez of the curfew, but Cortez assures her they were planning to be back before then and apologizes. Shepard lets her off the hook, and in return gets an invitation to come along.
In town, Prosser spots the local drug dealer selling to Kowalski, and while the sailor bolts, the COB walks up to the dealer and beats him unconscious, flicking bullets out of his ejected magazine onto his motionless body. "Next time these go in your head," he warns the dude who isn't even awake to hear him. Must be intended for the witnesses.
Kylie's in a parking garage again, and a woman comes up and tells her the admiral isn't coming. She introduces herself as Forrest, a friend of the admiral's and now Kylie's, telling her about Admiral Shepard's shooting of Amanda Straw, who officially died in a plane crash over the Pacific. That makes the photo of Straw's bloody but dry corpse that Forrest produces potentially rather awkward for the president if it gets out. Forrest says it might make people wonder what else the president is lying about, and walks away. Okay, good meeting!
