Jared offers an invitation
Scene shifts to a food stand underneath a bridge in the city.
JARED: Hey, you free to come over for dinner tonight?
MICHAELA: Here you go.
MICHAELA: Not sure that’s a good idea with everything going on.
JARED: You being led by the voices in your head to blow me off?
MICHAELA: No, that’s just me.
Significance of the bridge in the scene
Bridges are highly symbolic. Just as one crosses a bridge to get from one area to another which otherwise would be inaccessible, this scene introduces a calling (i.e. the heartbeat) which turns out to be an important emotional connection for Michaela, linking what is happening in the present to what happened in the past. By the end of this episode Michaela appears to have “bridged” the gap.
Jared is upfront about NSA
They get into Jared’s undercover police car.
JARED: Are you still hearing them? The voices?
MICHAELA: I don’t know, but look, if you’re worried about me messing up again, it’s not gonna happen, okay? At least not in a way that affects you.
MICHAELA: How do you know that? ‘
JARED: Cause they’ve been all over me, making sure I keep an eye on you. I haven’t told them anything, and I never will.
MICHAELA: Thank you.
