pouts and Rafe smiles smugly since he finally got what he's been looking
for. She tells him Sami isn't worth it because she would break his heart for
a box of popcorn. He tells her this is all her fault. She worries that she
could end up dead because of this and begs him to show he cares. He assures
her that she will have FBI protection, but that doesn't impress her much so
she walks out. Rafe chases her down and they go to the station. He says

her. He attempts to give her a pep talk but she's pretty sure she is

own name, she's not likely to be the computer genius behind this. He tells
her the result is all that counts. Nate walks in and asks what's going on.

edge. She gets confused and thinks he's onto her, but he just thinks she's a
bit slow with the new program at work and was getting tutored. They go to

great' and she worries she will screw them up.
