The next day, John is at his computer when Sarah wakes. He's been doing some research. It appears that Dakara is looking for investors to create the server farm they need for their AI plan. John has made her an appointment as a prospective investor. He gives her a dossier that explains that she will be posing as a rich divorcee looking to invest in tech start-ups. He also made her a cheat sheet so that she wouldn't look like an idiot when talking about tech stuff. Sarah asks him if he was up all night working on this. He says that Dakara is a start-up, just like Cyberdyne once was. Andy Goode was building a chess program, Barbara Chamberlain was trying to solve a traffic problem-- it always starts small.
Derek walks into a room with a towel-clad Jesse. He's been going through the pictures that she has taken of him and his clan. He puts his gun on her dresser and tells her that she's got 30 seconds. "Funny, Derek," she replies defiantly and he is not kidding, lady. I say that but have no question that this girl will make it out of this scene alive. She says that she was sent back to find John. Derek says that she could have told him that and she says that he could have told her that he was living with him and "her. It. Metal." She says that he's not talking to anyone anymore, only her. He's making questionable decisions that are getting people killed. What will happen if he spends the next 20 years with her? She's there to stop her. Just pointing out how narratively inhospitable this show is -- I'm assuming that they're talking about Cameron because she lives with them and seems to be a robot. But, I don't really know. She adds that she's there to save him and Derek puts his gun away and says that he has to think about the stuff that she just said. She asks why he's there and why she can't send him back and he picks up a picture that she has taken of him and John and tells her that he loves her "but don't push it."
Ellison arrives at the ZeiraCorp building with police swarming it. He meets a detective of some sort who says that he'd heard that Ellison had recently lost a lot of weight. He confirms, saying that "too much iron in your diet is not good." The detective explains that a heat wave caused a blackout that weekend and a guy who was working in the server room was left without ventilation or a/c for 8 hours -- he was cooked. They wheel out the body and Ellison takes a look. It's Dr. Sherman.
Catherine Weaver tells Ellison that Dr. Sherman had been consulting on an AI project named Babylon in the building basement. I love that song. She says that during the blackout the AI program reserved generator power for itself and cut off power to the other building's systems, thus causing the death of Dr. Sherman. Ellison asks if the AI program controls the building and she says blankly that he makes it sounds like a monster movie. She explains that the AI has access to the power supply in order to facilitate its growth. OK, that's scary. Ellison wonders if growing involves allowing the agonizing death of a man and I'm making a guess that he's being...rhetorical? She replies that she doesn't know what its intentions were and Ellison says that does sound like a monster movie. "Which is why we need to find out," she says. OK, Shirley Garbage needs to do some jumping jacks before her scenes or something. She looks good, but she is flat.
