Cara's eyes narrow. "We didn't pick that name, either." Shouldn't regular people be Homo sapiens sapiens and the Tomorrowers be Homo sapiens superioris? I don't even know why I care. I'm just going to take the show's lead, call us SAPS, them SUPES and be done with it. Russell finally introduces himself, shakes Stephen's hand and asks if he's the guy Cara can't stop talking about. Cara gives him a dirty look, and telepathizes a stern, "Shut up, Russell." I don't think anyone but Russell could hear Cara, but regardless, Russell's comment did not escape John's notice.
Looking around, Stephen notices a bunch of expensive ill-gotten gains, like stereo equipment, guitars, watches and asks where it all came from. By levitating a watch and then grabbing it and poofing it onto his wrist, Russell demonstrates the upgrade to a five-fingered discount -- the no-fingered discount (although technically, after he lifts the watch with his mind, he does grab it with his fingers, just sayin'...). John pointedly steers the impressed Stephen away from telekinetic kleptomania and toward learning how SUPES survive. He points out two of the newer break-out SUPES, who are sparring and teleporting, and says sleep teleportation is just the beginning for our boy Steve. John says when Stephen completes their training regimen, Ultra won't be able to touch him. Cara describes Ultra as, "...the ones hunting us." Dun dun dun. John says there's a shadow war going on in the world between SUPES and in-the-know SAPS. We cut to a...
Crazy looking building. The inside of which I can't even describe, because I know if I were in it, it would trigger a panic attack, and just looking at it makes me feel on edge. Cara narrates that the government has known about SUPES for years. To contain them, they started the program Ultra. Inside the crazy building that serves as Ultra's headquarters, the three teleporters who were after John climb the stairs. We cut to an office where Dr. Jedikiah Price (Mark Pellegrino) awaits their report. Cara's narration about Ultra continues. "Their agents are like us. Captured, then forced to use their powers to hunt the rest of us down."
In Jed's office, he orders Black Teleporter (BT) to have a seat. The other guys move off camera. BT is sputtering an explanation before his ass hits the chair, but Jed will have none of it. He had John and lost him. That's not why Jed has summoned him. He cues up a video interview of the homeless gentleman who witnessed BT and John's teleportation on the subway car. Jed reminds BT that their program requires complete discretion. BT promises to "take care of it," Jed smiles. "It's already been taken care of." Dun dun dun! Jed butters up BT about being of a superior species, while as SAPS like him (Jed) have to do things, "the old-fashioned way." At that, he takes out a handgun and lays it on the table between them. BT glares at Jed, who knows BT is trying to read his mind. "You know your powers don't work here, and you don't have to be telepathic to know what I'm going to do."
