Finally we have Gloria, caught in between the two stories. She wants to help, like the android, but she is chasing a bum lead in the case of her stepfather's death. She finds a machine with only one purpose, to flip a switch back in place. When she finally learns about Thaddeus' story, as incredible as it is, she realizes that it has nothing to do with his murder whatsoever and accepts that the entire trip was useless and absurd. However, by the end of the episode, Gloria returns to her real life and gets a glimmer of hope for her case.
