I'm just a paper salesman

Nothing like traveling halfway around the world to shake you out of the doldrums.  Not that making copies isn't a life of excitement.  A bad paper jam could take a man's head off.  This is me being glib and making stupid jokes to distract myself.  #8 bothered me more than I like to admit.  I have to remind myself that not all of Isaac's visions came true.  The fact that New York's not a smoking hole speaks to that.  Still...

Focus on the job at hand.  Follow up this lead in Odessa and get back home.  Hopefully Suresh hasn't blown everything by trusting Molly's well being to the Company.  I can't be too hard on him.  Lord knows the things I've done to protect Claire.

Claire.  The girl's lying to me about a boy and that's dangerous. What I don't know yet is if that instinct goes from being an agent or a father.

Focus on Odessa.  It's almost like old times going on a secret mission with my partner.  Life of excitement...

You know that "someone's stepping on my grave" feeling.  I'm getting that from Parkman.

It felt like I spent seven weeks in that holding cell.

Parkman and Sprague handled themselves well, although I didn't appreciate that "middle management" crack. No contact yet from Gitelman or The Haitian. I just have to trust that their end of the plan is on track.

I'm worried about Claire, Sandra, and Lyle. I know Claire can take care of herself, but Sandra's an innocent and Lyle, well... he tries.

Linderman's involvement is going to make all of this...problematic. How far does this go?

Claire's gone.

Claire's gone and I wake up bleeding on the bridge.  That bridge.  I remember Thompson giving the order, I remember getting in the car with her and driving, then...nothing.  The contingency plan's in place, and obviously working, but the process is...disconcerting.  I need to trust the Haitian that he's taking care of her and we 're doing the right thing.  I'm worried nonetheless.

The Haitian.  I've know the man for years and, yet, I never refer to him by name.  All these layers of secrets and lies.  Smoke screens and plausible deniability.  Who is he working for?

I can't worry about that now.  I have to keep the lies straight.  Protect Sandra and Lyle.  Claire's on her own for now.  I have to hope I've taught her well enough.  I have faith in her.

Parkman showed that he can keep his head in a crisis.  I might even be able to trust him.  I think Thompson's eager to make him my new partner, bring him into the fold.  Good.  I think I can keep him on my side if I'm "disavowed" by the Company. 

Nothing to do now but rest and heal.  Get myself back into the field where I can do something.

I need to do something.
