Martinez allows Sterling into the Oval Office with a Picardian "COME!" Sterling does not have news of Sophia, but he wants to chat. He thinks Martinez's decision to suspend Posse Comitatus is not like him. Apparently, Martinez blames himself for all this, and he specifically blames his attempt to free the prisoners. So he's cracking down instead. Just like with Sean, Martinez has decided to be a badass. He has more tools at his disposal, so instead of kidnapping superspies, he just tells his vast military to go kill people. And he doesn't regret anything. Sterling is dismissed.
Sean works on his laptop at a crappy roadside cafe. Vicky points out that when Sean dies, his virus (I'm just going to pretend it really is a virus from now on; it'll be easier on everyone) will go out and her mother and son will die. Sean doesn't care: "I guess you better find a way to keep me alive, then." Man, what a classy guy. He finds a party that Jarvis is invited to, and Vicky suggests that he add them to the guest list with his vast, magical hacking skills. He thinks that they won't get vetted. "That's why we're gonna find people that have already been vetted for us." Okay, so I guess they have a plan. I forget where they were, but they're zipping off to Washington, DC.
Two married stooges in a hotel room get ready to go to the party. They seem nice. Then a knock at the door presages bad news for them. Vicky, wrapped in a towel, is out in the hallway and asks to use the phone. Then Sean, Our Hero, rushes in and points a gun at the stooge, telling him to get on his knees. The stooge begs Sean not to hurt them. "Just cooperate and we won't have to," he says, presumably because it's the sort of thing that he's heard tough guys say. Vicky comes back in with her clothes on and gives him a fingerprint-duplication pad. She whips up a fake passport while the stooges wriggle and sweat. Sean uses the putty to steal the fingerprints of the stooges. Vicky has to change her appearance because Jarvis has seen her before, but first she wants to shoot the witnesses. Sean, the very picture of tenderness and compassion, whacks them over the head with a gun barrel instead. They're unconscious now, so everything's fine. Sean's sure good at pistol-whipping people.
