Calhoun, meanwhile, is driving away from Greenpoint with a satisfied smile about whatever deal he just made with the other suit. But he looks up just in time to see a red dumptruck crash into the side of his car. JC steps out. This show has more and more shades of Batman in every scene, don't you think? From JC's Christian Bale-style whisper-growling to the truck crashes (not quite so spectacular as the truck flip scene in The Dark Knight, but still reminiscent). I'm not complaining, really. I actually sort of like that it's an homage. Finch and the Library are even thematically and aesthetically similar to Alfred and all Batman's lairs. Anyway, JC tells Calhoun he's sorry, but he really needs to watch where he's going. Calhoun's all, "Huh?" JC tells him to call off the dogs on Theresa Whitaker right now, but Calhoun says it's too late. JC tells Finch he's coming and to get off that floor right now. Finch tells Theresa they have to go, so the run out to the elevator, which is heading right toward their floor.
They run back into their room as the hit man exits the elevator. Finch watches through the peephole and sees the hit man going for the fuse box to cut out the hall lights. He'll see the lights in their room, so Finch tells her to turn them off. She does, and they close the door to the adjoining room, where the lights are blazing. That's the room the hit man focuses on, of course. In their room, Theresa tells Finch she told him they should have left. He says she did, and he's sorry. He asks for her phone, as the hit man busts down the door. You can hear them talking, saying, "He's right outside the door" but it's coming through the hotel room phone. Nice diversion, actually. They're already in the hall, but the elevator's too slow. They head into the janitor closet, but the janitor elevator isn't quick enough. Finch tries to get her to take the fire escape, but she won't go without him (and he can't go down it). Apparently she's found someone she trusts. As the hit man aims his weapon at her, he gets shot from the other hall and falls down dead. It's obviously our Savior, JC.
Carter's phone rings. It's JC's whisper-growl on the other end. He says she's been asking a lot of questions and asks if she wants to meet. She does. So she show up in a park with a bunch of backup. She tells them all to be careful, because this guy's as dangerous as they get. She looks around and finds no one that looks like JC. Eventually she sees Theresa, and asks her what she's doing here. Theresa asks if she's Detective Carter, and says her friends told her she could trust her. Theresa, disappointed, takes Theresa in. Some other cops arrest Calhoun elsewhere in the city. Carter questions Theresa about what JC looks like. She won't speak. Carter says the hotel staff may have seen two people coming and going, and might there have been anyone else helping her. Theresa says it was a pretty traumatic experience, and lies that she doesn't remember much at all. Then her aunt Elizabeth comes in looking for her and they have a tearful reunion.
