He shares that he only brought Stevie because his parents were going to try and set him up.
In the Oval, the team and Liz talk with Henry about sending robots in to get their target. Henry doesn’t like the idea, robots can’t tell when the target surrenders and it is bad for humanity. He seems to be outnumbered though with most of the room for smart weapons. Liz appears torn.
