Emma, Paul, and Jacob are sleeping together when Jacob gets up. The others ask if he's okay or freaking out, but Jacob says that he's just has to urinate. Once he's alone, Jacob examines himself in the mirror. Outside, Paul figures that Jacob is freaking out and tells Emma that the three of them having sex was fun. Meanwhile, Joey runs to the bookshelf, climbs up, and grabs the cell phone that Emma hid there. He calls Claire and asks why he can't come home. Joey doesn't know where he is and Claire gets him to describe the farmhouse while Turner and his team trace the call...

Episode Quotes
Paul: I've been thinking about little Megan. I don't think you should go with the big blade. It is your first time and it's likely for your stabs to be.. tentative. I think it's better for you to go with something thin and sharp like this. It has more impact. All right? You can do this. I know you can.

Debra: Sign here. Do you solemnly swear to uphold the Constitution... et cetera, et cetera?
Ryan: I do.
Debra: Good. You're deputized.
