Also in a motel (probably the same one, in fact), Collier is interrogating Carter. Carter's the jerk played by DB Sweeney. In case you forgot. And this scene wouldn't help you remember it, because he won't tell Collier his name. In fact, all he'll say is that he wants a doctor for the broken leg he sustained falling off the roof after Collier shot him. And probably for the gunshot wound, too.
Sean has told Leila what's been going on with him, and she doesn't understand the part about the plane teleporting from Miami to Florida. She asks how her father explained it, but Sean didn't stick around long enough to find out. He says that "some sort of aircraft" started moving in and that he ran. As I remember, those aircraft looked like military helicopters. The They have a fleet of helicopters? That's something to remember, I guess. She would also like to know about what happened to her father and (to a lesser extent) the rest of the passengers, and I think the reason this isn't interesting is that I already know the answer. In fact, Sean is behind by at least a couple of ridiculous plot developments. Anyway, Sean tells Leila that the plane allegedly vanished over Brazil. And does Sean know anything about Leila's mother? He stammers a bit and comes out with the news that her father told him that the baddies killed her mother. Man, nothing says drama like one character telling another character about things that happened five episodes ago. Leila refuses to believe him, saying "No!" through clenched teeth in a really annoying way. Oh! But now everyone remembers that Samantha exists, so I guess we can spend another few episodes watching people try to track down Leila's sister.
Collier is on her phone with someone, saying she'll know more later. If Sean's hacker pal could track Vicky's phone, I don't see why the baddies can't track Collier's phone. We know they're powerful enough to tap the phone of the Yuma FBI office. Leila busts into the room to shout at Carter about her sister. Carter claims he doesn't know anything, so Leila digs her hands into his gaping broken-leg wound. Ick! It's all gross and bloody and sticky! Oh, and it's not good for Carter either. He recovers enough to tell her she should blame her father. "He's no angel. The way I heard it, he brought this on himself." That's nice and vague.
Police cars! Sirens! Screeching to a halt! Confused baristas! We have left the motel to return to Washington and the Search for Sophia. Simon and a flunkie discuss the situation. They have forty-three extra targets, so they're going to need to shut down the coffee shop and keep everyone there. There's a discussion about what cover story they should use, since the old Homeland Security dodge doesn't work as well as it used to. They decide they'll just have to make it sound convincing. This whole time, they're maybe two feet away from the people they're about to use this story on. Luckily, none of them show the slightest interest in listening in. Also, no one appears to remember that Simon was in there a few minutes earlier tampering with the milk. I can only assume that these people live every day of their lives in a world of ridiculous complications and plot holes, so they've decided to notice as few things as possible. Simon has some of his men look for Sophia on foot, while the others lock down the coffee shop.
Sophia walks through the city and is momentarily distracted by (PLOT POINT ALERT) an angry dog. So either They are mortally afraid of dogs or dogs instinctively hate them. Maybe they're vampires! That would explain why they landed in Alaska, because it has really long nights.
In the Situation Room, Sterling wants to override all traffic cameras and CCTV. Wait, isn't CCTV closed-circuit? So it's not actually connected to anything you can take over. That aside, this seems like the sort of thing you should have done as soon as you knew you were going to be tracking someone through the city. Just then! A man comes in to tell Sterling that whoever dosed the coffee shop did it with supplies from the government's armory. The impression I get is that they keep the secret radioactive isotope supplies in the White House itself. And only people on the field team have access to it, although they don't have specific records on who accessed it. But since it's highly radioactive, it should be fairly easy to tell who handled it. The man calls Simon and tells him to gather up his men. Now? The men who are looking for Sophia?
Back to 1954. Simon and his chick. Nothing much is happening, but it's kind of sepia. So if you like brown, this is a great scene for you. She would like some sunflowers to light up the house. That's seriously the most important thing either of them say. She goes into a house and Simon looks down the street. Hi, Thomas! Thomas has been lurking around so he can tell Simon it's time to leave this life behind because people will notice he's not aging. How long has he been in Venice Beach? They only crashed ten years earlier, and I'd think it would take longer than that to notice that someone isn't aging. Anyway, Simon is in love! Thomas doesn't care; he tells Simon not to let his people down. He won't even let Simon say goodbye, and already Simon's story is more interesting than anything Sean's done.
In the parking lot next to the coffee shop, the man from the Situation Room (aside: "The Man from the Situation Room" would be a great name for a blog) asks Simon if all his team members are present. Simon claims to have them waiting "out front." Meanwhile, I have to assume that people are wandering out of the coffee shop, so the radioactive isotope plan is totally compromised. Although I don't know why they can't just track all 43 targets. Maybe use the traffic cameras to eliminate some until you figure out which one is Sophia? Never mind. The man tells Simon there's a traitor and that he has a briefcase with a Geiger counter in it. Simon takes the briefcase, but the man reminds him that someone needs to check him first. That sentence had a lot of "him"s in it. The man reminds Simon that someone needs to check Simon. Simon agrees, then whacks the guy upside the head with the briefcase. WHAM! Right out in the middle of the parking lot, too. He stuffs the man into the trunk of a car, which we see from across the street for some reason. I think they're trying to hint that someone might have seen this, but that already occurred to everyone in the audience because he's doing it right out in the open.
Leila and Sean. Leila wants to go to her house and look for evidence. Sean thinks it's a waste of time and wants to hide Leila somewhere. Because there's a huge superpowerful conspiracy looking for her. Although they're also looking for him. Also, he believes that when there's a murder warrant out for you, that means you're supposed to go out and look for evidence to clear your name. It apparently does not occur to him to call a lawyer or something. Leila refuses to be put on a shelf, saying she won't heal until she knows about her family. Sean refuses to put her at risk. There's a staredown.
Carter wants to know where the ambulance is. Collier doesn't know. How would she? Even if she definitely did call for one, it's not like she has a magic ambulance-tracking device. Suddenly! A truck screeches past the window. Sean has stolen the car (which he and Collier stole from those goons in Yuma) and he and Leila look at each other with absolutely no expression. Then they pull up at the Buchanan house. What? Isn't that house in Georgia? There wasn't even a commercial break! They just pulled out onto the road in Texas and then parked in Georgia less than thir
