The phone rings jarring Nash awake, he pushes the phone on the floor and stumbles to Reggie’s room waking him up. They order room service and try and come up with a plan while they wait for Bento to call.   While scrolling through their new PDAs, trying to learn about their new identities, Nash sees a news story.   There’s a hand drawn police sketch of Fitch and the story says that he’s wanted for the murder of two Somnambula Inc security guards. He’s on the run and the police think he’s in the woods outside of Sacramento.

Nash begins to get low and asks Reggie for the whiskey so he can strengthen up his coffee. Reggie falls asleep and many hours later Nash has killed the whiskey and is quite drunk and depressed. Reggie is able to get him into bed where he just lays sobbing and mumbling spilling his secret about his failed mission and promotion.   Meanwhile Reggie gets a call from Dr. Lee who informs him that Chip is being transferred to the Coral Gardens psyche hospital for further treatment.

Nash falls into a fitful sleep and then Bento calls Reggie giving him an address and says to meet there within the half hour. Reggie throws Nash into a cold shower and calls for a car. They meet Bento and Tom Rodgers at a diner downtown. Bento informs them that there are eyewitnesses that say Suzie left with a bunch of guys in business suits in a car registered to Somnambula Inc. He says there’s not really anything they can do at this point. Bento does have an ace up his sleeve however. He tells Nash and Reggie that there is a press junket at Somnambula headquarters and he has set up cover ID’s for them to go in and scope things out. Bento cautions that it is not a rescue mission.

When they leave the diner Bento sets them up with some gear for the mission and then Reggie and Nash do a little shopping to pick up some appropriate clothing for the job, bis cas.   Afterwards Reggie confronts Nash about his drinking ultimately convincing him to smash he empty whiskey bottle in a powerful “ritual”.
