the shooting was justified. Cal watches the interview video and
tells the officers their statements seemed rehearsed. He says that
he thinks Eric is lying to him while the other seems like he is
telling the truth. Cal says that he is not sure what happened on
the roof. After Cal leaves the mayor's office, he is photographed
by an unknown man in an SUV.

group of protesters complain about the treatment of Andre. Cal asks
Gillian about Adam's emotions during the interview. They watch an
interrogation with Adam and a neo-nazi and see that Adam has contempt
for the suspect. Cal meets with the FBI and tells them that he doesn't
think Adam is working for the terrorists. He says that he thinks
one of their agents has gone rogue.
Eric is brought into the Institute's interrogation
room. Cal tells Eric to talk him about spies. He says that he is
a spy that spreads bad information. Cal says that he doesn't think
that Eric is working with the terrorists. Cal tells Eric that he

who were working as EMTs. Cal meets with Adam. He tells him that
Eric found out Andre was only carrying a cell phone, so Eric planted
a gun on him. Adam tells his captain to tell Andre he is sorry.
Eric is arrested.
Later, Cal asks Eli to meet with him in his office.
Eli admits that he lied to the investigators. Cal says that the
lawsuit was a test. He says that he wanted to test if Ria was going
to be loyal. Cal tells Eli that he can continue to work for him,
but only as an unpaid intern.
Gillian tells Cal that Christine is Alec's sponsor.
She says that Alec had a drug problem then relapsed. Gillian tells
Cal that she knows he thought Alec was having an affair. Gillian
tells Cal that they should not use their abilities to look into
each other's lives.
Although Christine is Alec's sponsor, I think he
is still having an affair with her. Alec was secretly running away
from both Gillian and Cal. If this is true, I would be disappointed
if Gillian doesn't know.
I thought that the internal investigation was not
believable. I don't think a business would waste so much resources
just to test an employee's loyalty. I think if Cal really had 'abilities,'
he would be able to figure out that Ria was loyal without the need
to spend money on actors and equipment. If Eli returns to work for
Cal, it would diminish the believability of the show. I doubt that
anyone would willingly work for a repulsive person like Cal for
free. If he wanted to do more good, he should volunteer for Habitat
