Aiden and Padma are still sitting in the office at Nolcorp. Padma's phone rings, and Aiden tries to calm her down in preparation of taking the important phone call. Aiden puts it on speakerphone, sitting by silently as Padma answers, expecting Helen. Trask informs her that Helen is no longer with them, but her orders are the same. Again, Padma demands that the Initiative provide proof that her father is alive. Trask says that she's already signed for it, sending Padma's eyes looking down at a small box with her name and address on it that's sitting on the table. Trask: "Feel free to check the fingerprint." Padma reaches for the package, but Aiden stops her. He cracks it open himself and tries to keep a stone face, but his jaw flinches. He turns to Padma and she knows what's in the box. It's like the end of Se7en, only much less awesome.

Emanda manages to get Ams onto her raft. Amily just wants to know that Jack's going to be OK. They won't know that until Nolan returns, Ems says. A minute goes by and Amily's now being much more realistic. She needs to know that Emanda will take care of Jack and Carl. Promise.
