Nina meets with Olivia and tells her that there are many versions of the book about the First People in many languages, and Bell knew about them for a long time. She also gives Olivia some relationship advice familiar to denizens of AskMetafilter, revealing that she clearly comes from an Ask (not Guess) culture. Meanwhile, a scientist has received an unusual birthday gift that results in his bones turning to jelly. After an initial lead proves less than successful, Walter thinks another survivor of the Cortixephan trials may be able to help using his ability to read minds. As a special bonus, we get to see Olivia dressed to the nines.
