Weaver is trying to cajole Ellison into teaching John Henry right from wrong (via the former Chrome Artie) since his religious faith and paternal instinct makes him such a good candidate, and Dr. Sherman isn't around anymore, and Ellison makes the very good point that Dr. Sherman isn't around because JOHN HENRY KILLED HIM, and Weaver says, "It wasn't murder. You said so yourself," which I'm sure will be great comfort to him when John Henry bakes him alive or whatever. Ellison's scared of what happens when John Henry realizes just how powerful it is. "Cows are more powerful than humans. I'd still rather be the farmer with a gun," says Weaver, which makes almost no sense whatsoever.
Sarah and Eileen are in some UFO-themed diner, which really just consists of aluminum pie plates hanging from the ceiling, and Eileen says Abraham was seen here a week ago, according to an anonymous posting in a UFO chat room, and this would be the point where if I were Sarah I'd cut my losses and just get up and leave, and Sarah's not really into nutjob UFO web sites, and she just wants to talk to Abraham, and Eileen excuses herself to go to the bathroom. Sarah looks around at the pink-uniformed waitresses for a moment, and then is startled to see herself in a white tanktop sitting in the booth, across the table. She's carved "NO FATE" into the table and is spinning a knife around. So Sarah gets up and stomps into the women's room to demand Eileen take her to Abraham. And since he's taking off his wig and washing off his makeup, it looks like he's doing just that.
So apparently Sarah waits until they get all the way back to Eileen's (actually, Allan Park's) trailer for an explanation. Allan explains his life was in danger and he needed to hide. He says a few years after MIT he went to work for an aerospace company, and it was there he was approached by a firm that needed his expertise with lidar. And let's just get this out of the way now: since this is supposed to be a man pretending to be a woman, wouldn't it have made more sense to cast a man and dress him up as a woman, rather than cast a woman to play a man dressing as a woman? Does that make too much sense? Anyway, Allan says the company treated them well, but he has no idea what the project was because everyone signed non-disclosure agreements and everyone was working in isolation, and he had access to technology he'd never seen before. So, in a really BRILLIANT move for someone working on something so clearly top-secret, he started BLOGGING about it in the hopes that someone could tell him what he was dealing with. Then strange things started to happen: his apartment was broken into, his brakes were cut, and that's when he took all his money out of the bank and went into hiding. "Some disguise," says Sarah, and Allan says he couldn't take the risk. "You took a risk with me," points out Sarah, and Allan says something vague about how she seemed to know something he didn't about it. Yeah, you know who else might know something you don't about it, Allan? The people TRYING TO KILL YOU. Sarah asks if he's got any proof, and Allan admits to stealing a piece of it that he's got stored in a safe, so Sarah wants to saddle up. "It's not safe," he says. Sarah shows him her gun. "It never is," she answers.
