We start with yet another flashback of Olivia, Peter and Henrietta in the park. It’s the day the watchers make themselves visible. When Olivia wakes at the hospital, she hears Peter trying to find a missing Henrietta (yeah still the ugliest name in existence). This flashback is from Olivia’s perspective. Olivia is awoken by Peter, who says that she was dreaming about their daughter. He says for them that it was like it all happened a few months ago. Peter reminds Olivia that Henrietta is there and they are all together and okay now. Olivia washes up in the bathroom looking at the pictures of what are clearly Henrietta and her adopted family.
Walter has the device on his head and the thought unifer is causing him to talk out of sequence. When Astrid takes it off, Walter gets upset and tells Peter he needs the machine, if he is going to make sense of his memories. Peter says that they don’t know if there is anything left to retrieve, or what the machine is doing to him. It seems that Walter has been speaking Swedish and Portuguese. Olivia enters the room and asks how it’s going. Peter says that at some point in the past, Walter knew both Swedish and Portuguese but other than that nothing. Olivia points out that Walter always documented everything and asks if he wrote anything down. Walter says that he cannot remember, but anything is possible. Henrietta says that even if they were files they cannot get into Harvard because it has been taken over by observers. The entire four mile radius around Harvard is apparently “a no go zone.”
Walter brings up tunnels but Peter replies, “we don’t have the time to dig tunnels or the manpower.” Walter answers, “we don’t have to dig them, they’re already there.” Apparently, there are steam tunnels under Harvard, which are used to heat the building. The team travels through the tunnels, as the observers walk around above ground unaware of their presence. They hear a loud banging noise and Walter pushes them out of the way, as a blast of steam comes out of a pipe. When Walter sees a drawing of a dragon on a wall, he stops and says,”hey I have been looking for you.” When they make it to Walter’s lab, they discover that the entire thing has been ambered. They see Walters beta max recorder on a tripod and Walter says that he must have been standing in front of it when he ambered the lab and surmises that he was making a video.
As they are wondering whether or not the tape is still in there, a guard enters the room. Henrietta comes out behind him and orders him on his knees. Peter asks who is and Henrietta cuts Peter off saying, “he’s a loyalist; he’s not going to tell us anything.” Olivia searches him and finds nothing more than a big bag of bread crumbs. Peter wonders if this area is part of Gale’s patrol and Astrid says, “for all we know, we tripped some sort of silent alarm.” Peter points out that they are going to notice that Gale is missing at some point, and Henrietta says that they need to stay to find out the information on the tape. Walter says that he needs a proper laser because the device they used to free him won’t work because the amber is too thick. Olivia asks Walter if he can make one and he replies, “where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
Olivia and Peter check out the power and quickly discover that there isn’t any. Astrid says that the substation is in the basement of the science building and that is the only way they are going to get power. Henrietta suggests that they can get there using the tunnels, but Astrid says, that they don’t even know if it’s the science building anymore, or any have idea of what’s in there, or what could be waiting for them. Henrietta replies, “we don’t, but he does. I’m sure he knows plenty,” before walking into the room with Gale the loyalist and closing the door.
Henrietta says to Gale, “you don’t seem to talk much, but I am going to give you one more chance. What do you know about the science building?” When Gale does not answer, she pulls out a device and says, “it’s okay, I’m good at opening books.” In fear Gale asks where she got the device and Henrietta replies, “it’s not important, what’s important is that I have it.” Henrietta asks again what the science building is used for and then turns on the device. Gale grunts in pain and when we see him again, he has clearly aged. Henrietta says, “I don’t think you want to waste anymore precious time.”
