Behold the scrolls.

They're not here.

Talk to me, Daddy.

This is not the way

it's supposed to be.

Catatonia is

a schizophrenic disorder...

marked by stupor

and mutism-

no doubt brought on by the trauma

of the gunshot head wound he suffered.

- Can't you wake him up?

- Oh, he's awake.

He's just... trapped in there.

I'd like to be alone

with my father.

If,in fact,

you are my real father.


Are you in there,


Look at this.

It was sent to me anonymously.

Do you have any idea why my mother

and Jarod's mother are together?

I didn't even know they knew

each other.

Is this what you had

so much to tell me about?

Hey, Sis.

We gotta get out of here.

- Why?

- They say so.

What are Adama and his

Triumvirate goons doing here?

Well,now that Dad's awake and,conscious,

they are taking over his protection.

They want him isolated.

Why? They afraid of what he might say

or who he might drool on?

I don't know. But I have a feeling it has

something to do with a vault on SL 15...

- they blew to pieces last night.

- Looking for what?

- Hell if I know.

- What do you bet Raines has something to do with this?

Doubt it. He hasn't even resurfaced

from his latest disappearing act.

Truth is,

don't know, don't care.

When these crazy Zulus get this pissed off,

all I do is follow orders.

And now that Dad's brains

are as scrambled...

as yesterday's eggs...

they're gonna need somebody else

to put in charge around here.

Consider me an applicant.

If it isn't

another Parker.

Surprised to see you here.

Really? Considering my family has been

running this place since-

The Triumvirate runs

the Centre. You leave us now.

You harm one hair on my father's head,

Adama, and so help me-

I never liked you either.

- Miss Parker.

- Not now, Broots.

No, no.

It has to be now.


I found Jarod.

It's an ancient symbol

of some sort.


Eight skeletal figures on

the circumference of the symbol.

You've seen it.

Do you have an address?

I have been searching for this for weeks.

I'd be happy to hold.


Oh, no. No, no.

Come on.

Come on, come on, come on.

- Jarod Dodson.

- Second floor.

- Let's move.

- Yes, I have a pen.

It's on the wall outside

the Alley Sports Bar.

Thank you very much.

Find him.

- What?

- You've been chasing me for five years.

Why don't you

just leave me alone?

You know that's not the way it is.My job

is to catch and return you to the Centre.

You run, I chase,

just like always.

- Besides, I need answers.

- About?

- About who my real father is. About who I really am.

- Welcome to the club!

That photograph that both of us were

e- mailed of our mothers-What does it mean?

You work for the Centre.

I thought you people know everything.

- I know they still want you back.

- Why, because I'm a Pretender?

Because I can become

anyone I want to be?

I'm not buying that one anymore.

It's something else.

Just tell me what you know

about that photograph.

I'm not sure what it means,but something

tells me it holds the key to this whole puzzle.

And the first one to find

the answers wins.


The museum people say that Dr. Jarod...

was the funniest archeo-symbologist

that ever worked for them.

Yes, he's a regular

laugh riot.

-What exactly is an archeo-symbologist?

-You know.

It's the study of the origin of

unexplainable symbols through the ages.

It's a quite

exciting field.

I can just imagine the crop circle

deciphering parties at your house.

Is there any other symbol in particular

that intrigued Jarod?

No. The people at the museum

said this was the only thing he looked at.
