Inside the building, the FBI calls Erica's phone and Erica lists Eli's fake demands: Stand down and no air coverage or else she's dead. Bolling asks how she is and she hangs up on him. Eli applauds her performance. She thanks him, but has some bad news for him. In her vast experience with the FBI, she is pretty sure that Eli's only exit from the hostage taking is dead or in cuffs. Did she forget to mention that part when she told him to take her fake hostage? Eli glares at her for the oversight and comes up with his own plan B and starts frantically typing on his iPhone. Unclear whether it is a Facebook status update or a tweet or a Foursquare check-in (Eli Cohen has checked in to FBI SEIGE. Eli Cohen has unlocked the Super Swarm Badge on Foursquare.)
Joe Evans' arrival interrupts the FBI's siege planning. They dispatch some guy to soothe the unwieldy ex-husband. For some reason Joe is hanging out in a parked SUV and the FBI agent updates him by sitting in the driver's seat and explaining the situation: They found an unmarked access tunnel, but the FBI is too scared to go in and save Erica. The Fifth Column is scary, yo! Then the guy leaves his folder with the secret map and the path marked in red on the seat for Joe to find. Gosh it looks like Joe will have to go straight and then turn left to gain access to the building. Looks complicated. Will he find the nerve to go where the FBI won't? This is where the show always falls apart -- the little details where logic completely fails. I mean, I get that Joe wants to save his wife, but really? We're supposed to believe that he's just going to charge into a hostage situation unarmed when the FBI won't even do it? Really? Whatever, show.
Inside the building, Eli and Erica are showing each other their favorite family photos and reminiscing about the good old days, when one of Eli's men drops a body on the floor. They found him snooping around the basement. Obviously it's Joe. And he's not dead, just bloodied. And REALLY stupid. Erica is not pleased. But also pleased. I mean, she is a girl after all and, gosh, that's a romantic gesture. Erica orders him uncuffed and then demands to know what the heck he is doing there. Joe sheepishly explains that he saw the hostage thing on TV and came to rescue her. Her friend Caldwell at the FBI left the blueprints in the car and he took it as a sign from god. Erica shakes her head sadly, because she's never heard of Caldwell and she is only a fake hostage. Erica quickly deduces that Caldwell was actually a V sleeper agent and that the Visitors are working behind the scenes in this situation. Erica stashes Joe out of the way somewhere while she and Eli try to parse out Anna's plans. But neither of them can figure out why Anna would want Joe inside the building with them. Come on guys, you're not dreaming big enough! Quick, someone tack a Successories poster on the wall so these two can think outside the box.
