At the gala, the security team is out in full force and all the guests are going through metal detectors. Erica is assessing the scene when her partner finds her actually at work. He is shocked and tries to make small talk to cover the stunned look on his face. Erica says something vaguely disingenuous and insulting about Anna always getting what she wants and Bolling stares blankly. Then Erica stares at him blankly and then we cut to Chad staring blankly whilst sipping champagne. Behind Chad's head a shadow breaks from the background getting closer and closer and closer. It's Lady Chad! She is so totally stalking him right now. Chad stares at her and demands to know how she got in to the gala. She points out that as her job is to cover Anna, she thought she should come to the event. Then she asks Chad to introduce her to Anna, but he just, you know, stares at her blankly.
Outside, Eli Cohen and Kyle pull up in a van. Inside, Chad has gone ahead and introduced his doppelganger to Anna and being, perhaps, a proper journalist, she has used the moment to ask Anna a tough question: What is the motive behind all the gifts the Visitors have given the earthlings? Off the record, of course. Anna squints slightly and then assures Lady Chad that in their culture, gifts are simply given, without motive. They are of peace, always. Then she excuses herself because it's her party and she'll lie if she wants to.
Erica is still surveying the crowd, but pauses to text Father Jack on her disposable cell phone. He starts his protest and Erica sends Bolling and a bunch of security to deal with the situation. Then she goes to let Eli and Kyle into the building. They make a beeline for a roost to take down the queen. Chad Decker is apparently working at the gala as Ryan watches him on the television set in his depressing hotel room as Anna presents Concordia to the world. As Anna moves through the crowd and Kyle gets her in his sights, Ryan starts to hear voices. Specifically, Anna's voice reminding him that the only reason his daughter cries is because she is sick (not because she is a baby) and only Anna's bliss can heal her.
