Anyway, Skye brings Josh down to a bar and introduces him to Tom, who is a "man who can get things," because someone has obviously been watching The Shawshank Redemption too many times. Josh wants to get a message through to 2149 and Tom says it's expensive, and Josh says he'd have time to work off a debt and then Tom says something that with the combination of his accent and the fact I can't turn on the closed captioning on my television I can't decipher at all, but it seems important because there's a musical stinger after it. Tom knows that Josh is the sheriff's son, so he wants to know if Josh can be trusted to keep secrets. Somehow Josh angles that into getting a job at the bar. Is that how it works? "I don't know if I can trust you, so please start hanging around me and my operation as much as possible."
Anyway, Malcolm explains the time travel to Elizabeth, who isn't buying any of it, so Jim picks up the clunky tablet computer they have which includes Elizabeth's own video log of her describing the disease. And her first reaction is "I look so old," which is annoying not only because WORRY ABOUT THE DISEASE PLUS YOU LOOK AMAZING, and also because she didn't seem to notice that her college boyfriend had aged twenty years overnight as well. So either Malcolm looked forty years old in college or they could have thought this through a little better.
Then the power goes out, and some backup power comes on, and Jim goes outside, hopefully to be eaten by the ovisaurs. Something runs past him outside. Having not managed to get eaten, Jim goes back inside where he finds Brady the soldier unconscious and power lines severed, and he goes stalking through the darkened corridors. Looking up through some kind of tunnel that leads up to the outside (for easy access for dangerous dinosaurs?) he sees Taylor, who fires a sonic blast at Jim, knocking him on his ass. I have to say I'm enjoying the way Jim keeps getting shot at this episode. Taylor steps on Jim and warns that if Jim moves, he'll blow his head off.
So Taylor finds Jim's ID and wants to know exactly what Terra Nova is. "It's a code name, isn't it? Is that what you call this operation? Terra Nova?" Taylor thinks he's in Somalia circa 2138, and that this is some sort of psi-ops operation, and Jim may be "Russo-Chinee." He wants to know where his wife and son are. He's babbling about experiments, and he's going to find his family in Terra Nova or come back and slit every throat in sight. Then he punches out Jim, so he's got that going for him.
