Christina finally arrives at the hospital and Jarvis meets her outside Martinez's room. He appears to have given up on finding tactful ways to say things, because he just tells her that, "Strokes like this are very unpredictable." So, you know, don't be surprised if your husband just up and dies on you. However, he thinks that Martinez's trademark stubbornness will get him through this. He sounds relatively sincere when he tells her, "Whatever happens, I want you to know that that man is a hero to me."
With that out of the way, Jarvis ducks away from his secret service minder so he can be alone in the bathroom. He looks at himself in the mirror, does not do the Fonzie comb thing, then throws up in the toilet. Some guys just can't handle the post-assassination adrenaline rush. When Jarvis comes out of the bathroom, Sterling gives him a look.
Peel and Sterling sneak off by themselves. Whenever they do this, there are no secret service agents around. Those guys have to be unhappy with the way they're being represented on this show. Sterling doesn't want Peel to start the process of Jarvis taking over for Martinez, but Peel says that the 25th Amendment is clear. I think it's weird that they're talking about Jarvis taking over in the case of Martinez's death, when Jarvis is automatically in charge as soon as Martinez is indisposed. Which he definitely is. But they're ignoring that and instead talking about the elaborate procedure in which the members of the cabinet will have to validate Jarvis as Commander in Chief. Peel says that Martinez's allegations aren't enough of a basis on which to defy the Constitution. Also, he's got brain trauma, which makes him an unreliable witness. Sterling tells Peel that Jarvis confessed to being involved in the Coral Gables incident. He begs Peel to help him stop Jarvis from taking over, and Peel says he needs irrefutable evidence.
In Alientown, Sophia learns about the situation by watching the news. One of her alien buddies walks in and says that she must be pretty pleased about her plan to poison the president going so well. She accuses him of being callous, which is kind of hypocritical. He ignores this and gets on with his expository duties, telling her that Aaron has recovered the weapon. I don't know why they're still being so vague, since we've seen the mummy already. She asks why Michael isn't helping Aaron, and Mr. Exposition says that Michael's probably busy or something. He's not really all that much help. He asks how they're going to deliver the weapon on the scale they need it, and I wonder if he could possibly find some vaguer terminology. Especially if he's asking for specifics, you'd think he'd call the weapon what it is, rather than just "the weapon" all the time. Sophia says, "Once Jarvis is in power, he'll help me. He just doesn't know it yet." I think he does know that, actually. Wasn't it part of their deal? He takes out Martinez, gets to be the president, then helps kill enough humans in the non-USA parts of the world to make room for two billion aliens. Say, if the aliens don't mind cold, how about Siberia? We're not using that much of it, really.
