  • Boxed Crook: Agent Odell forces Lynn to work with a deranged but brilliant scientist to help the kids in the pods.
  • Four Lines, All Waiting: This is the first episode in a while where every major character has some significant advancements going on with their storyline.

    Lynn: It's hard not to see this as you trying to sabotage my efforts.
    Agent Odell: If I was trying to do that, you'd have failed by now.
  • Revealing Cover-Up: After Tobias killed Detective Summers he torched the car; this clues Henderson in that Summers was dirty and was in deep and whoever did it is a very professional and dangerous criminal.
