At home, Elizabeth awkwardly approaches Paige about going to the mall this weekend. Paige correctly assumes this is about buying bras, and she tells her mom that's not something girls her age do with their moms. She goes back to her homework/ignoring her mom. Elizabeth tries to start another conversation, with "In a few years..." but Paige isn't paying attention. When Elizabeth does get her attention, she abandons whatever thing she was going to say and merely tells her daughter she loves her. For all the show's faults, I am enjoying the way Keri Russell plays Elizabeth's lack of intimacy with her kids. It's rather unshowy, even if the script is spelling it out in capital letters.
Down in the garage, Philip is installing the bug in the clock. Elizabeth is alarmed when she sees he's hurt, and he explains to her about the brother. She's worried he went to the police. Philip is worried this entire mission is a giant shitshow. They test out the bug -- it works! Hooray and all that.
