Powell Pad; Interior: JJ is hiding a copy of Pascal's Theorems inside a comic book when Jim enters and tries to make amends with the boy. "You're not a kid who lies." Well he kind of is, now, Jim. "You just -- surprised me is all, but I know what it's like to have people not believing in you. I never meant for you to feel that way. I'm sorry. It took me a second, but you've got to know how proud I am of you, JJ." JJ says he appreciates it, but I can't imagine how the kid's not drowning in guilt.
Jim finds Stephanie and reports that both he and George are fine. Stephanie has had a change of heart about his super-powers. She won't ask him to stop doing what he's doing. "For so long you were lost, so if doing this gives you something that this marriage or family doesn't, I guess I just have to understand this or at least try. But make no mistake. I don't trust what's happened to us. So first, I'm going to find out how this happened and then I'm going to find a cure. And when I do? I'm going to make you give this all up." So...I'll let you lick your ego, but never forget I'm faster than you, smarter than you, and I will always wield the power in this family. All shall love me and despair. Nice.
School: Daphne takes off the ear buds as she's wandering the hall. At first, her schoolmates' thoughts are unbearable, but she manages to shut them out, and smiles.
Math class. JJ gets back a test on which he earned a B-, but he's not fooling Professor Dick who tells him, "Even this is a stretch for you. I don't know how you're doing it, but I know you're a cheater. I've got my eye on you, pal."
Steph's Lab: She and Katie finish their tests on the phosphorescent phlebotinum. It's just naturally occurring phosphorescent phlebotinum and nothing special, certainly not the source of their powers. My money's on the wonder-plant.
Cho's House; Nighttime: When Cho enters her place, The Watcher is there. He throttles her with his mind, lifts her up in the air and gets her to admit that she knew something was unusual -- special about Koblenz. When questioned, she says no one else was aware of it. Now Cho's on the ground on all fours, catching her breath. The Watcher circles her and makes his way to the door, but he uses his power to levitate Cho's gun and aim it right at her pretty face. When he exits, we hear the gun go off. The Watcher then calls Dr. RevCam King. "It's done." RevCam hangs up the phone and smiles.
