Doctor Lu and her assistant monitor Leila. She's kind of doped up, because they're using her as a Virus Incubator. She's generating deadly mucus or something. Leila complains about her entire species being exterminated, and Lu says she's just taking back what's rightfully theirs. "Your father should have told you. We were here first." Yes, her father should have told her that. But since you don't have anything else to do, maybe you could tell her? No? Just going to drop some cryptic clues and move on? Okay, then. Just thought I'd ask.
Sophia has one of those meetings she loves, where she lectures a bunch of her people. She explains that they're going to deliver the virus via three parallel distribution channels. The first team will infect a food processing facility nearby, which will infect the Eastern seaboard. The second team will go to the bureau of engraving and currency, because obviously that's not the most secure place in the country. Seriously, they had their choice of anywhere and they picked "the place the money gets printed." That will hit the whole United States, making the first distribution channel somewhat redundant. The third team will just release it in the International terminal of Dulles Airport. This gets the whole world. So why bother with specifically dosing the United States? And given the United States one, why triple down on the Eastern Seaboard? Your people will be coming through in Tibet, won't they? Sheesh. Anyway, Sophia tells everyone to mourn the loss of life, but to remember that they're doing it for their survival. This is to imply that she has some moral qualms about what she's doing, but if she's still going to kill billions of people, I don't really care if she feels kind of bad about it.
Jarvis is in the hospital and orders somebody to redirect the satellite. It'll take two hours, and the guy doing it finds this highly irregular, because such an order would normally come from the Director of National Security. But that position is vacant, so Jarvis is just doing it himself. I'm surprised there's no plan for succession for that job. Isn't there a deputy or vice-director or someone who ordinarily fills in? Anyway, a doctor tells Jarvis that he's cautiously optimistic about Martinez's chances for a miracle recovery, but that he can't give any details due to doctor-patient confidentiality. Jarvis claims that he just wants to know if he should be ready to transfer authority back. The doctor says that this recovery is much faster than a normal multiple-stroke recovery. In fact, this just doesn't happen. So I guess the poisoned sweetener has the effect of stopping all brain function but not actually damaging the victim in any permanent way until he dies. How convenient!
