Alpha Tango Echo 53.

Clean up complete.

Alpha Tango Echo 53,

permission to return to HQ approved.

Rabbit Hole out.

The Pyramids, Stonehenge,

the Great Wall...

Would've taken massive amounts of people

communicating with each other,

and even agreeing with each other

to build those ancient wonders.

We believe they used

this biological substance

to control humans.

If we look at worker ants,

they work together,

building tunnels, gathering food,

defending their territory,

using what's called swarm intelligence.

See, ants are given very simple tasks.

But together...

They can... they can solve

major complex problems

by just communicating with each other,

using their senses, pheromones,

sounds, touch.

How do humans work together

to use this swarm intelligence?

Why can't most men think with their

brains when they wanna get laid?

Hmm. Hunger, thirst.

Those are basic needs that can

be quenched on your own, right?

But there is one fundamental desire

that cannot be fulfilled

if you were stranded

on a deserted island.

The feeling of being alone.

Hmm. Social connection

is essential to survival,

and they impart that fundamental need

and make you feel that what you're doing

is both ethically and morally correct

so that you won't resist it,

you won't even question it.

No logic, no reasoning,

no emotion, nothing can overpower

this altered reality they put you in.

You speak of "they."

Who are "they"?

Mark Maris, please report to B7.

Will Mike Maris please report to B7.

Jim, can I see you

in my office for a sec.

Yeah, sure.

Ah, come on in, Jim.

Grab a seat.


Sit. Mm.

I try to take care

of anyone who's served.

I'm sorry about the box, okay?

Luckily nothing was broken.

It's not just the box, Jim.

I need a certain order

to operate this facility,

and you disrupt the flow of everything.

I'll get better.

Well, you might be right,

but I can't afford to train you.

This is just the easiest

solution right now.


You'll find something else.

Have some... faith.

All right.

That was fun.


Hey, Seth.

We're here.

Just checked in.

Catching some sun nearby.

Uh, Seth, I'm not feeling so well.

Is that Jim?

Tell him I say hello.

He says hello back.

Hold on a sec.

You don't sound sick.

Hey, you're not trying

to avoid seeing Angela and me?

I know seeing us together

would be a little weird, but...

No, no, I'm...

It's not that.

Wait, did you have an episode again?


Oh, no.

That's terrible. When?

Just now.

Where are you?

I'm at home.

You want us to come visit you?

No, you guys are

just here for a few days.

Uh, that settles it.

We're coming to see you.

You may recall I make a chicken

soup that will cure any illness.

Not that chicken soup that left

me on the throne for two days.

Oh, yeah, that's the one.

You know what,

I'm feeling slightly better.

See, the recipe works!

Okay, see ya, pal.

Jim! What ups!


Ha ha! Not gonna let a little migraine

stop us from seeing each other.

You had me at chicken soup.

Oh, come on.

Hey, Jim!


How are you?

Congrats on your first year

of residency!

Thanks! I can't believe

I got through it.

You remember Kara, right?

Oh, hey, Kara.

Hey! What are you doing in LA?

Um, I'm in between jobs.

Jim is applying to the CIA.

As an analyst, nothing glamorous.

Until you save the world.

Then I can say I knew you

on my YouTube channel.

Kara here is a very popular YouTuber.

She has a rather large

following of cute girls.

That I'm sure would love you.

I certainly admire you guys

for going after your dreams,
