While being led out, she catches sight of another replay of Christine Kendal's meltdown on the TV news. That's a slick segue across town to Christine's place, where Kendal's old "friend" Paul Wells presents her with purported emails between Kendal and Chaplin, allegedly outline "their" plan to defect to China and sell the Colorado. Christine's not buying it, arguing more that Kendal would never do this rather than pointing out that two people who spend all their time together in a series of welded-together closets hardly need to take the idiotic risk of putting such a plan in writing, but she can't deny that Kendal was different after coming home from North Korea. Well, who wouldn't be?
Out on the beach, Chaplin again meets Curry, who has shed his jacket and tie and is now skipping stones into the surf. Curry's decided to try the good cop bit, saying he likes Chaplin and can even help him carve out his own little place here if that's what he wants. Chaplin's sticking to his guns, though, saying that with China moving on Taiwan, Curry must really be interested in freeing up his ships blockading the island, and all Chaplin wants to do so Curry can make that happen is tell the truth in court. "We are reshaping the face of this planet and you want to stand on a soapbox and plead for the truth?" Curry says, calling Chaplin a fool. "Because the truth is gonna be whatever we say it is." Chaplin asks Curry if he ever thinks about how history will judge what he did to Pakistan, causing Curry to change the subject yet again. Curry's not exactly coming off like the guy in favor of justice here, is he?
King is now back at the array, trying to repair it with a wrench instead of a drill, while another submarine, not the Colorado, drifts past. Good thing those don't have windows.
Chaplin is calmly meditating while Kendal asks him what his bottom line is, and Chaplin reiterates that he wants to go home. Just then the delegation returns, with Admiral Shepard arriving first and quietly fretting about all the radio chatter and his daughter being out on the Colorado when something's clearly going on. Curry and Straw follow, Curry with a new offer. But before he can present it, a sailor whispers in Chaplin's ear, so the captain gets up and walks off with Kendal to quietly tell him that attack subs are closing in on the Colorado ."If they'd found her, we'd already be dead," Chaplin reassures Kendal, and then pleasantly turns his attention back to Curry. So I guess they'll know when they do find her, right?
