Night and Olivia sits in a car in the rain. Loyalist workers are taking down the Etta resistance programs that have cropped up all over the city. Finally Anil runs to the car and hastily gets in. He shows her the piece of Observer tech that they insert into their own brains, the same one that Peter used, and assures Olivia he had no idea what Peter intended to do...Read the full recap
Olivia: Simone, you have a gift. You can see things that other people can't. I don't doubt that. But... wherever you think this gift came from or whoever you think bestowed it on you, it's simply an anomaly. I know that because I'm an anomaly. I have moved things with my mind. I've lit things on fire. I've caught bullets midair. I've seen things that people only dream about. I've seen... the seams between universes rip aprt. Things that humans shouldn't see. People make up explanations... assign meaning to things without knowing because it's reassuring. It's comforting. But I can't do that... because I know too much. It's all just numbers. And the invaders, as you call them, are just better at math than we are.
Peter: If you could see what I see, Walter... if you could experience what it feels like to fully harness the untapped potential of the human brain. You, of all people, should know that there is no reason to be afraid.
Olivia: Etta's not gone, Peter. Windmark didn't take her.
Peter: Yes, he did.
Olivia: No, he didn't. She's still here with us.
Peter: She is dead.
Olivia: She saved my life today with the bullet she brought to us. She's alive inside us. And there's nothing that Windmark can do about it because the love that we can share with her now is invulnerable to space and time, even to them. And I know that our hearts are broken and that it hurts, but that's what makes us human.
Peter: Emotion is our weakness.
Olivia: No, Peter, it's our strength, because it's the one thing that they don't have.
