Sarah's sitting in her orange jumpsuit in an interview room when in walks Joshua Malina, star of Sports Night, the very first show I recapped for this website, not long after television was invented, and he looks pretty much exactly the same. Maybe a little older. Much like Jeremy did, this guy, Agent Aldridge, talks a lot, too, very eloquently, sophisticated sentence structure. Calling himself a "measure twice, cut once" kind of carpenter, he wants to make sure Sarah's aware of her rights, including the right to a lawyer. Sarah continues to exercise her right to glower at people.
So he moves on and tells her that ten years ago she murdered Miles Dyson. "Long time gone, but the man's still dead, so we've got that." Eight years ago, she and her son and a high-school friend blew up a bank and died in an explosion. "Now of course, you're still alive, which is inconvenient for many, but the bank's still blown, so we've got that." And more recently, as in Monday, she participated in a firefight, leaving five dead and kidnapping Savannah Weaver, daughter of Catherine Weaver and citizen of Scotland, so this time Sarah's gone international! He tells her that two of the dead were off-duty police officers, which usually earns someone the needle.
Sarah tells Agent Aldridge that he's a funny boy: "I never liked funny boys." "I doubt they like you either, Ms. Connor," he says. Laughing time is over! He says there are two ways they can bring her son into custody: with her help, or dead. Sarah says her son is dead, but Aldridge isn't buying it. He tells her to think about it, and walks out. Sarah looks up at the security camera, red eye blinking.
Meanwhile, John is angrily watching the news, by which I mean he is visibly seething as he watches news footage of his mom's arrest, and they show a picture of the three of them, with the announcer saying the other suspects (i.e. John and Cameron) would now be in their mid-twenties.
John wants to move to a new hideout, but Cameron says it's a bad idea to do that within twenty-four hours of an "incident," and this room provides excellent sight lines down the highway. "This is not an 'incident.' This is my mother," John snaps at her. Cameron looks at him. He says he needs a computer so he can do some research, and she thinks he wants blueprints for L.A. county jail so he can bust out his mom. She says she won't let him do that, and he should know that by now. He says he does, and she asks him what he needs to research, then. "Power sources. Shielded nuclear power sources," he says, staring straight at her. "Like mine," she says. Bingo, he says. "I want to know if being around them all the time can give you cancer."
