Personal Conversation Edit
The episode begins with Jonathan Sims arguing with Elias Bouchard over his recent kidnapping. Sims is angry that he had been gone a month with Elias seemingly doing nothing, and Elias counters that he had the team investigating the research sight, but that he needed Sims to develop his own powers rather than rely on Elias to fight his battles.
Sims brings up Elias's murder of Jurgen Leitner again as an instance of Elias hindering him, but Elias maintains that if Sims were just given the answers plainly it would only hurt him in the long run. Pressing Elias for information on The Unknowing, Elias provides all the information on Gertrude Robinson's research into The Unknowing, and that if Sims can locate the ritual it would be preventable. Elias also states that the bulk of Gertrude's research was hidden from him.
Complaining about his lack of resources, Sims off-handedly mentions that Gerard Keay was working with Gertrude. Believing he had read that in one of the statements, Elias instead asserts that this is Sims's powers beginning to develop. He now simply knows things without having read about it, and that they should look into Gertrude and Gerard's movements before their death. They are interrupted by Elias saying that Melanie King is on her way to his office to kill him with a knife, and Elias asks Sims to prevent it.
Melanie is angry towards Sims for being absent, before apologizing as she wasn't told about his kidnapping. She is resolved to kill Elias, believing his threat about the assistants dying with him is a lie. Sims asks if she would rather go to prison, but Melanie believes that the police wouldn't investigate a supernatural death too closely, which Elias notes is a good point. Sims continues to talk her down, and says that they will deal with him one day, but not today.
