Zoe and JC are in a pharmaceutical laboratory somewhere, tied up. Alone. She says he never told her his name, and he says, "My name's John." Zoe laughs. Because, there are only four million Johns in this country. He sort of smiles back at her. They're adorable. She asks how he knew she'd be in trouble, but he's not really telling much. He just tells her to consider a new line of work. She tells him he's one to judge. Plus he doesn't know anything about her. He tells her he knows almost everything about her. Which would be creepy if JC weren't a somehow charming stalker. He knows she grew up in a nice house in Yonkers, that her dad was snared in a corruption case and then she lived in a tiny apartment with her mom in Queens. The only thing he doesn't know is why she started doing whatever it is she does. She looks away, and talks about her dad's life as a politician. He did what he was told right up until he was arrested. She says the local press was camped out for weeks, until a guy showed up and got them to leave. She wanted to be that guy. The person who knows what to say, and always has something to trade. He asks what she's going to trade now.
Douglas interrupts before she gets to answer, though. Bench, meanwhile, is calling urgently for Mr. Keller. He tells the secretary it's urgent; a matter of life and death. Zoe tells Lawson and Douglas she emailed a copy of the Sylocet report to a friend, and that if anything happens to them, it goes public. Lawson offers them a deal: The first one of JC and Zoe who gives up the report gets to live. Back at the Library, the secretary finally puts Bench through to Keller. Just then, his recording clears up, and is back to Dana threatening to go to Mr. Keller. Lawson tells him this is his chance to tell the old man, and Keller comes in and asks how stupid she thinks he is that anything in his company could happen without him knowing it. Bench hangs up before Keller gets on the phone.
Keller also enters the room where JC and Zoe are tied up. He's not happy they're alive, but finds out she's emailed a copy to a friend. Keller tells her to be reasonable and make the smart play, like the Zoe Morgan he knows. She tells him she'll take him to the report, and JC look disappointed in her. She tells him that she told him to always have something to trade, then leans in and kisses him. While the men are all distracted by this, I guess, she slips a paperclip into JC's hands. Everyone leaves with Zoe except Douglas, who stays behind to kill JC. But his paperclip's already hard at work. Douglas tells JC not to be surprised, because Zoe's always looking for an angle. He fills up a syringe with potassium chloride, which stops the heart in minutes. "Quite humane, really." JC says that's Lucky for Douglas. He jumps up and uses the syringe in Douglas's own hand to kill Douglas. (Is this only JC's second actual kill, after Stills? Or have I missed someone?)
