That night, at Dakara, Xander excitedly starts to work with the microchip. Sarah tells Cameron that they're about to burn all of their dreams to the ground. It must be difficult to maintain the level of functional crazy that she has to maintain. There's a problem with the chip -- it's not working. Cameron takes it, looks at it, and says that it's larger than they said. It's been made to look as if it's modern.
Sarah is pissed and Alex tells her that while his dad was fighting in WW2, his grandfather's house was taken over by his neighbors (because he's Asian and they were in an internment camp). Sarah tells him that he couldn't have known about Minamoto (that was the Japanese guy). He tells her that he'll pay her back and she says not to worry. She's going to talk to Minamoto. Alex says that she shouldn't because he's "old country." He's a gangster, which brings her to the conclusion that he was paying Minamoto to steal the chip. She gets a text message. "Target Acquired. Moving To Location." She gets up and leaves.Ellison is talking to Weaver. He says that he knows all of the "facts" about Dr. Sherman's death. "Means. Opportunity. But intent? Not even Mr. Murch (IT guy) can guess." I'm going to just break out a second and say that the last little speech didn't mean shit about shit. Means? Opportunity? You could, of course, on this end of the statement argue why it makes sense to say that, but if you were trying to find out something, wouldn't that just be confusing? Weaver suggests that they just question the Babylon AI, John Henry. Dr. Sherman gave it the name. She says it's not a person, but it's a mind.
They're going to take Weaver's advice. Murch tells Ellison that John Henry communicates in images, because they thought it too creepy for him to talk. It understands voices though. Ellison tells John Henry his name and his own picture shows up on a huge screen with lots of fancy graphics running across it. He asks him if he knew Dr. Herman and a 1 shows up on the screen. Murch says that 1 is a "yes" and a 0 is a "no." He asks John Henry if he worked with him today (no) and why not? Nothing shows up except some weird algebra and Murch says that could mean a number of things. He should rephrase the question, so he asks what happened to Dr. Sherman. We see a video of Dr. Sherman working and the lights go out.
Ellison asks John Henry to show the surveillance video after the lights came back up. We see Dr. Sherman lying on the floor and a ticker on the bottom of the screen that reads that medical attention is required. Ellison asks John Henry if Dr. Sherman was alive at that time and he says no. He also knew that redirecting the power would kill Sherman. Ellison asks how John Henry felt about Sherman and he has no answer. No opinion. He tells Murch that John Henry has no ethics. It should value life. He blames Murch for Sherman's death and starts to leave. Weaver asks him what he would teach John Henry and he says he would start with the 10 Commandments. It's going to be hard to teach a robot to honor its mother and father, but sure.
