Erica wants to know everything that has happened since she has been gone and since she is going to be there for a while, she can hear it all. Hannah reveals how she quit a sport she loved because some of the kids from the other teams found out about Erica and it was her dad that decided she needed to stop playing sports for a while.

He is able to remove things with his own hand, completely impressed at what Kate can do. He admits they would have been lost without her; he thanks her.
Keaton sits with Erica, revealing they took Aksoy into custody and he has given them intel. Keaton wants to know if it is a problem that Hannah is seeing her with her father’s consent. She knows he won’t get over it, but Keaton suggests that she tell Christopher the truth but she fears if she tells him the truth, he would try to save her and that would mean Hannah would have to live with the fact that she is alive because they are dead and she doesn’t think she could do that again. She is willing to do everything for her daughter but Keaton says if Christopher asks him, he will tell him the truth.
Anna claims the network isn’t working, lying about who she is working for and wants to get into the computer room.

Keaton says all their success today was thanks to Shepherd, but Kate calls him away saying there was an attempted breach on the computer system and whoever it was they were careful, only after confidential informant files. The focus was on a Tal. Keaton is furious and accuses Erica, saying she is the one who breached the system trying to get information on Tal; Erica says she asked him specifically so that Anna Cruz would hear her and she is the one who did it. She says Anna is a mile who is working for Tal!
