Wes is having some alone time with the big blue Drill rock from the desert inside of a very large plane. Being that he's without supervision, he gets the brilliant idea to touch the butt rock. It sort of electrocutes him in a non-deadly fashion, before letting out that creepy-ass noise Drill loves to make. Sweet. Claire is at home monitoring Henry on her tablet and looking over photos of the kids Drill has become homies with. She looks away for a second, and he poofs from his bed. She wanders her dark house, looking for her sneaky child... finding him standing around next to her bed staring at the photos. He sees the different kids that are associated with Drill in those photos, wondering why she has them. “There's more, mommy. Drill has lots of friends.” OFC HE DOES.

Minx and Wes have a sweet little phone conversation about what he's up to and where he is, which inside a 'special place'... AKA a warehouse with Drill's giant blue rock. Minx gets off the phone and immediately apologizes to Drill for not being able to find out where her dad, and his big blue rock, really are. Wes speaks with a Dr. Tully, who is basically an alien scientist. She thinks that it's a meteorite but is eyeballing it like some crazy person. Sean and Claire are talking again in his containment center; he wishes he could remember 'us'. Are you sure? Claire inquires about his tattoos and tells her that he has this feeling, as if something in his stomach is pulling him... and it started last night... just as Wes was playing with the big blue rock. Claire and Wes meet in a very well-lit parking garage (weird) and he spills his guts – there's something incredible out that he's found. She isn't impressed, as she just got done speaking to Sean about it and that makes Wes get all jealous alpha male. He can't tell her what he found, which is quite the dick move after everything they've been through so far. She tells him to get over himself before it's too late.

Claire tries to get her boss to let her back on the case with Rollins and he's against it 100%. She then asks to gather the Drill kids in a room so they'll talk. Her boss is suspicious and thinks Wes is involved, but she explains that if something is discovered, she'll claim it was his good idea. He agrees, only if it's conducted in their office. Speaking to Lena, Claire is trying to get Minx into her new little Drill kid pow-wow. Lena is definitely still a wounded animal in regards to what went on with her husband and Claire, but listens to her about it nonetheless. Immediately Lena is paranoid, saying she doesn't want ideas in Minx's head... or the fact that maybe this is exactly what Drill wants (and I'm SURE it is). She ultimately says no to Minx participating.

Wes and the Secretary of Defense are going for a walk when he tells Wes about Claire's pow-wow. Of course, he's pissed, and they want to have a containment plan in case Drill shows up. “How are you handling all this, son?” At the FBI, the military police suddenly show up with their security measures and cameras, freaking the parents out. Thanks, Wes. The Sec of Defense talks to Sean, trying to pick his brain to gain a military advantage against Drill and talk about what or what didn't go on in the desert. Wes and Claire get into it about the fact there are police there, inducing the paranoia even higher. Claire goes to speak to the parents who are irate, telling them she's one of them, as Henry is there.

The nuclear reactor operator, the father of Harper, pulls Claire aside. He says that his wife is better, but is struggling with being at home knowing what happened there. She's afraid of her own child because of Drill. Lena walks by Minx's room, to hear her talking to someone (guess whooooo). “Mommy wouldn't let me go. It's some kind of playgroup... I think they're talking about you.” Oh, shit. Drill knows. You better turn the lights off!! Claire speaks with the kids and Harper is totally against speaking out against Drill. The girl that gave Henry directions says Drill cured her of her fear of the night. Henry speaks out that Drill cured his hearing and brought his dad back. These kids are absolutely convinced Drill is there to help, but it's clear as day that this is seriously messed up.

Minx speaks to Drill, “It's her. Henry's mom. She's the one who doesn't like you.... so I don't like her. She's the one who doesn't like you.” What have you done?! Claire asks the children what Drill wants, and Harper speaks up about 'the thing' – there are others like Drill, things that he misses. He came first... he had to find the food. The lights in the building flicker. No. No, no, no, he's there and he is pissed, GET OUT.

All of the kids look up, as if they're receiving instructions. “He's here.” The power cuts out. “Don't be mad, Drill! We wanted to tell you!” Everything is on lock-down, the power is out and the kids are trapped in the room with Claire, all starting to panic and ask for Drill's forgiveness. One of the little girls suddenly gets a calm look on her face, and on the monitors we can see an orb of energy floating around the children's heads.

  The parents and police break into the meeting room to gather their children; Wes tells Claire that they saw Drill. Suddenly the girl who looked euphoric speaks up, “Agent Bennigan? I have a message for you from Drill. He says... you're not going to win.”

Reviewing the footage, Claire sees the odd energy pattern that was in the room with them, circling the kids. Rollins gives her some comfort, nobody wants to see their own child attacked. Wes shows the Sec of Defense the photo of the heat image from the pow-wow, telling him Drill came for food. The alien scientist pulls them to the rock, explaining that while the outside of the rock is the usual elements found in the universe, they can't figure out what the inner layer of the rock is made of... and therefore can't figure out a point of origin. On Sean's hand there just so happens to be a celestial tattoo, which the scientists explains is Chi Sagittarii, which is about 220 light years away. The rock... er... spaceship, starts to emit a frequency, as if it's calling out to something: Sean.

Wes talks to Sean, with Claire busting in at the last minute. Sean knows that something came back from the desert and wants to know what it is, and he knows because it's calling to him. Lena is brushing Minx's hair as a sharp static electricity makes her hair rise – freaky – and Lena then asks Minx to have Drill come talk to them. Just as Drill arrives, Lena second guesses her sudden act of boldness.

Sean, Wes and Claire are in a car, presumably on the way to the blue glowing spaceship of doom. Sean asks about his wife, which is super freaking awkward. Three adults in a car, two of which are married and two of which have cheated on their spouses. And the nail in the coffin of that odd conversation? Sean notices one simple thing, “Looks like we have something in common.” Oh man, if only you knew. Minx and Lena are separated by a door so that Drill can prove himself. Lena holds up 3 fingers, “Ask Drill how many fingers I'm holding up.” “Three. He also says to keep going.” Lena is on the verge of a nervous breakdown as Minx bursts in saying that Drill likes them and they can play with him. Yeah, okay, sign me up for that. Wes, Claire and Sean arrive at the warehouse with the spaceship. Sean finally gets his moment and touches the shiny blue object... a frequency radiates over his body before he has to let go. He sees Claire... and remembers. Then he sees Wes... and also remembers. “I remember everything.”
