There's a meeting held in Oregon with the CIA, Sal, and Justin. That's where Justin understands that the government is involved too, and she asks Sal about this, and who asks her to trust him and says he'll handle the rest. Justin comes back to the lab and informs Faraday about what she found out. Confused, Faraday turns on his monitors again and tries to communicate with Newton about the government watching their whole mission. As soon as the monitors are on, Newton shouts at Faraday for being sloppy enough to let the government know about the mission and finding out Newton's hideout.

Faraday then questions Newton about why he never informed him about the machine being built in the shape of Anthea. He complains to Newton about not being told that Oregon is controlled by the CIA. After some to and fro, Faraday is frustrated and that's when Newton tells him the only way to deal with a situation is to tell what the people want to hear - Tell a lie. Newton teaches Faraday of how the whole network on earth is a shared belief on things that aren't true. And if people want him to be their pretty littile thing, he has to be the pretty little thing to make them believe him.

Meanwhile, the CIA is unable to track anything from the lab as all the frequencies are cut out. He tells Faraday to stop hiding and get out there to be a legend, that's how he can outsmart the CIA. Newton's words make Faraday understand that he believes in him, and he now has to finish the mission. Faraday then comes back to reality and talks to Justin about wanting to be someone powerful - someone everybody recognizes so the CIA will not hound him.
