Kiefer goes over to Teller's place earlier in the episode than usual, and this time they're in the dining room, so the relationship is progressing. This week's conversation is about Kiefer and whether he really has to keep chasing down all these numbers for Jake. Teller says the numbers both point to disorder in the universe, and reflect Jake's pain, so Kiefer has no choice but to go after them. Kiefer's concern is that the state will take Jake away if he keeps up with this. Teller offers to help, but Kiefer tactfully says they already think he's crazy enough. Teller warns Kiefer about Jake's higher purpose. "And believe me, you won't be the only one who notices it." Yes, but most of those other people just never bothered to turn off the tube after American Idol.
In Soweto, the woman from the opening has just completed a standardized test on a computer and then hands in her paper. Yes, I know that makes no sense. Her name is Grace and she tells the proctor, Baruti, that she hopes to get a job. He's optimistic on her behalf, but not too much for her absent friend Sauda. As she leaves, a couple of boys in subtitled "African Dialect" loudly discuss the bottle cap one of them is leaving on the windowsill to keep the latch from engaging, presumably for some later B&E. That would be "breaking and exposition."
At the clinic, Jake walks into a room where a screen is showing something called "Worldwide Dance Battle." I'm not going to explain it because it makes no damn sense. Meanwhile, the schoolgirl from earlier is at some outdoor festival talking too much to the guy taking her ticket when she really just needs to get directions to the tent with the dance battle already. Apparently she's meeting someone there. Nobody cares.
Kiefer's walking along the sidewalk when a homeless lady runs up behind him, bumps past him, and darts out in front of a cab. Kiefer's the only one on the crowded sidewalk with the presence of mind to yell, "Watch out!" but she still gets flipped onto the street like a pancake that's wearing too many layers. Kiefer's the first to reach her sprawled on the pavement and yells for someone to call 911. While he and a passing nurse attend to the victim, Kiefer notices that scroungy guy stealing a notebook out of the woman's bag, and chases after him. Because making sure the homeless woman has her notes is more important than any internal injuries she might have.
