Out on the sub, Cameron reports that there are enemies inbound. Prosser tells Shepard to dive, but Sophie says King dies if they do that. After a tense moment, Shepard gives the emergency deep order. Sophie yells at King over the radio to cut the tether, but instead he's dragged off the sensor and toward the bottom of the ocean. Tani's not going to be very happy with Shepard at all.
After the ads, he's managed to cut himself loose and return to the array. Sophie wants to know if King's still attached, and Shepard tells her that if he is, here at a depth of 1,400 feet, he's dead. Shepard orders them to sit tight, and for once Prosser seems in agreement as sonar starts pinging from above in a classic search pattern. "We move now, we die."
On the island, Straw goes off on Kendal about her litany of international problems she's dealing with, plus eight-dollar gas. Kendal asks what she wants, and she talks about all Chaplin's already lost: a wife to cancer, a son to war, and another one who's out and incommunicado somewhere, leaving only his cause, at least until they cast someone good as Chaplin's estranged kid. "Is his cause still the same as yours?" she asks, warning Kendal that Chaplin only wants martyrdom. Well, if that were true, the big old cross is still right there.
Meanwhile, Admiral Shepard updates Chaplin on the political aftermath of the nuking of Pakistan, and how half the Joint Chiefs are waiting for Chaplin to be the guy who makes it possible for them to remove the president. Chaplin says he wants his people home, and the Admiral agrees regarding his daughter. "But I don't know what that home is becoming." Hey, that's not what Straw told him to say at all.
In D.C., Kylie is arguing with a maitre'd who gave away her usual table at her usual restaurant. When he goes to get the owner, Kylie spots her (ex) bed buddy Robert at another table, then goes over and loudly accuses him of sleeping with her and then stealing her hard drive, "That makes two times you screwed me, and I'm still not sure which one was more disappointing." After dismissing Robert's date by threatening to "erase you from every guest list in the city," she sits down across from Robert and says she stopped going along with everyone when she realized everyone was a backstabbing hypocrite. He reminds her that she used to be one too. "Gonna miss you," he smugs. And then she's ejected from the restaurant. Wow, is D.C. really this high school?
