Back in the operating room, Zeke wants to know if Jack was telling the truth about Juliet wanting him to kill Ben. "Yeah. And in about forty minutes she's going to get her wish," says Jack. Thanks to 24, whenever someone mentions a length of time less than an hour, my eyes instinctively check the cable-box clock to see if they're subtly telling us to expect the development to happen during the episode.
Anyway, before Zeke and Jack can discuss this further, they're interrupted by a groggy Ben, who haltingly tells them that this isn't helping anything. Zeke and Jack stare at him, still face-down on the operating table. A close-up fills the frame with his face, oxygen tube still in his nose, as he carefully says, "Now. Will someone please get Joooliet." Still creepy, even half-anesthetized. I partly expected him to also request some fava beans and a nice Chianti.
Juliet's in the lab, working at a computer. Sherry strolls up, wearing a lab coat, not even like the skanky tight cleavage-revealing Halloween version of a sexy scientist, and says Edmund wants to see Juliet in his office. "Do you work here?" says Juliet, confused, and Sherry says she's the new research assistant. "Of course you are," says Juliet. Be nice, Juliet. Someone has to study the effect of hot beef injections on career trajectory.
In her ex-husband's office, Edmund's doing that dick thing that supervisors do where they ignore you and look over papers while you stand there waiting like an idiot.
Eventually, he says, "I want in." "In on what?" asks Juliet, who plays dumb while Edmund says he knows what she's doing: "I read your notes. I know what you took from the lab. The only thing I don't know is who's your guinea pig." Juliet tries to tell him that she's been doing her research in her own lab, on her own time, but he interrupts her: "It's your sister, isn't it?" Well, he figured it out quick, I guess.
