Michael goes into a pantry and gets a pistol off the top shelf. After he's tucked it into the back of his jeans, he comes back out into the kitchen, where Leila is eager to advance the plot. She's found a place about a mile into the woods where she wants to bury Luis. She claims to have been careful not to be followed. Michael tries to leave, but Leila wants to freak out about Sophia committing mass murder. Michael claims that he doesn't like it any more than Leila, but he feels that it's "us or them." Leila shares a story about this time Michael said kids shouldn't kill birds because they had a responsibility to protect the smaller and weaker things. She claims to no longer recognize him, which is weird. Because he doesn't age, see.
Sterling is alone in his office when someone comes by with the results of his requested analysis. The stain contained coffee and sucralose, a common sweetener. Oh, and an unknown biocatalyst, which was definitely synthesized, even though the US doesn't have the ability to create it. Sterling is on the case!
Jarvis is alone in his office. Well, the Oval Office, anyway. It's up to you if you think he's entitled to consider that "his" office already. Sterling comes in and tells him that he thinks the president's illness was no accident. Jarvis tries to talk his way out of it, but Sterling goes on to explain that he's had the coffee analyzed. Jarvis says, "You should have come to me with this," which is a line I never understand. As Sterling points out, that's exactly what he's doing right now. Sterling says that he has reason to believe that Sophia's involved, which means he can finally stop pretending he's not accusing Jarvis of being involved. And he finds an even more insulting way to do it, saying that Jarvis isn't smart enough to do this on his own. Then he starts warning Jarvis: "I don't know what she promised you to do what you did, but she's lying. The only reason she helped you get where you are is because she knew it would give her control of this office. You're a pawn, Ray. Her puppet!" He tells Jarvis that trusting Sophia will only lead to more death. Jarvis tells him his accusations are both baseless and outrageous, and that his resignation is accepted immediately. "You're done." Good thing for Jarvis that Sterling didn't make a copy of that lab report, huh?
