People in the White House watch a news report that blames Pakistan for the Washington Monument blowing up. Sterling tells Martinez that Simon's description has been sent out to all the relevant people, but he doesn't mention that it's too late to get him. Martinez says that the dead aliens on the busses included people who held various positions of power. And there's at least one more mole who helped Simon escape. I guess they could go back to that security room and see if the tapes show anyone else going into the room where Simon got his help, but that probably would be too easy.
Hey, remember Senator Catherine Lewis, the spunky Senator from Alaska? She's been called into the Oval Office for a very important meeting. She already has the names of two Alaskans who died at the Washington Monument, because the emergency workers on this show do very quick work. Martinez tells her that "The Sleepers" did it. She seems shocked, even though I don't think we were ever shown her learning about the Sleepers themselves. We saw Martinez promise to tell her all about Inostranka, but that was at the same time that everyone escaped from it so I figured he might have just backed out of the deal. But I guess he told her everything about the aliens, because she's on board for anything he wants to do. And his plan is to test every American's DNA. Man, the census can't even count everyone, and you think you can get everyone's DNA? Sterling looks uncomfortable, but he might just have gas. Senator Lewis, it turns out, is a doctor. We might have known that already, but if we did, I forgot. You probably did too. Anyway, she suggests that the CDC announce a new drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis, which reminds me that there was a news crawl in the pilot that described some kind of superflu. So she wants a nationwide vaccination program. Martinez suggests a pilot program to test everyone in the White House. Sterling counsels caution, but he's overruled. This is happening, and Senator Lewis is in charge of getting DNA from everyone.
