So last week was such a gripping cliffhanger that we naturally open with Derek and John just sitting there in Unky John's truck, and Derek tells John he's sorry about Riley, who didn't deserve what happened to her, and John sullenly says that people rarely do, and I for one am having a really hard time telling apart mopey John whose girlfriend was alive vs. mopey John whose girlfriend was just murdered.
John asks Derek how long he could survive against Cameron if she wanted him dead. "What kind of weapon do I have?" asks Derek, like maybe John's going to say "a nuclear bomb" or something. "Your fists and your elbows and your fingernails and your teeth," says John. "Against her? Those aren't weapons," says Derek, who allows that John already knows the answer: "If she wants me dead, I'm dead." John agrees and says he wants to talk about something, like OH GOOD, MORE TALKING, and he says he wants to talk about the future, and Derek says, "Yours?" and John says, "Yours."
Meanwhile, Jesse's at a swimming pool, and there's no one there but her, and she's staring at a bulletin board that has all kinds of notices posted all over it, but also it has these weird random shots of families on it, like there's a family of five all wearing hard hats for some reason, and I can't think of anything I'd like less than if my parents had put up the family photo of that summer vacation when my aunt and uncle and my cousins came to visit and we had matching sweatshirts printed up. I mean, my GOD. But speaking now as a father? I think it would be kind of awesome to have matching sweatshirts printed up for a family vacation.
Anyway, Jesse stares at the bulletin board and then goes and crouches by the pool and runs her hands in the water, and we pan into the water which takes us back to the U.S.S. Jimmy Carter in the Pacific Ocean in the year 2027. And Jesse is talking to Dietz on the radio or however they communicate from submarine to little pod thing, and he's saying they have secured the package and he sends over video of it, and the chief asks what it is and all Jesse knows is that it's Connor's box.
So the little pod enters the submarine on top, the hydraulic doors closing rather too quickly considering they're underwater (oh right, time-traveling robots, never mind). And it takes Dietz and a couple of the other men to carry the package down some steps, and Queeg stands there impassively when Dietz says "little help?" and then Queeg lifts the thing himself to secure it in the magazine: "Authorized access only," he informs them.
