After the ads, Curry's voice is on speaker, and Chaplin hands the call over to Brannan, who he says has taken control of the boat. Brannan asks Curry for instructions, saying he's on the conn with a live grenade, acting alone. There's a long pause, and then Curry says it's four hours to the blockade, which is too long for him to hold off the armed men on the conn. He orders Brannan, "Blow it. Sink the boat." Wow, that's cold. But then if self-sacrifice were Brannan's thing, he wouldn't be here now. Chaplin has Kendal cut off the call, then reminds Brannan there are 120 people on the boat, but Curry and the people he's working with want it all to just go away. "I am trying to bring the truth out to light, but I need your help." Brannan lets Chaplin gently take the grenade from him, holding down the lever and replacing the pin while Brannan is taken away. So how does Brannan get to help now?
In their parking garage, Kylie tells Admiral Shepard that she's done helping him. In turn he guilts her some more, and says her order number was a dead end. But she's there because she figures that the government must have had some reason not to enlist the Sinclairs in helping defeat the Perseus rather than just having the plans stolen. Kylie relates another magical feature of the Perseus, which is that it constantly transmits the Colorado's GPS coordinates back to the drive that Kylie had the specs stored on. Wow, that seems like a pretty major security hole. But Kylie figures that it was taken because "they" don't want anyone to know where the Colorado was before the attack. The Admiral reveals that he's been invited to a meeting at the Pentagon with Curry tomorrow. "Just so you know, I'm not allergic to shellfish, either."
