There’s a meeting in Oregon of the CIA with Sal and Justin. Justin then understands that the government is involved too, and asks Sal about it; Sal asks her to trust him and says he’ll handle the rest.

Meanwhile, Finch calls Clay and asks him to come to Washington to be held accountable for the troops that were Cambodia. Faraday turns on his monitors again and communicates with Newton about the government watching their whole mission. He complains to Newton about not having been told that Oregon is controlled by the CIA. Meanwhile, the CIA is unable to track anything from the lab as all the frequencies are cut out.

The duo talks about lying and Newton tells Faraday to lie a little as deception is common among humans. Newton says the best lie is the lie they need to hear. Give them what they want to hear. He tells Faraday to stop hiding and get out there to be a legend – that’s how he can outsmart the CIA. Newton’s words make Faraday understand that he believes in him and he now has to finish the mission. Faraday then comes back to reality and talks to Justin about wanting to be someone powerful, someone everybody recognizes so the CIA will not hound him.

Spencer is in a meeting with higher officials in DC; while agent Finch is trying to help him, Clay rats her out and betrays her for his benefit. The story then shifts back to the CIA, which wants to have a talk with Justin and so they take her to their hideout where they keep a track of everything that happens in the lab. They inform her that their interest is not in Faraday but Newton. They tell her they tracked Newton down to Cambodia. They think all of this is connected to the machine Justin and Faraday are building. They inform Justin that she needs to help them find Newton because they think Newton and Faraday could be cooking something that would possibly kill the human race.

After their conversation, Faraday tries to hack into the CIA’s system that is spying on them and sees the video of their group being killed in Cambodia.

Newton had no plans of sending Faraday back to his planet, but to bring Antheans to earth instead!
