A MILE HIGH WHISTLE
Michael gets an ominous text from Dr. Smithson. He and Terrance have been bonding by text since losing his sister and now it seems Terrance is losing himself in grief. But when Michael arrives in Denver he has brought something with him he hadn't expected and both are in peril.
Quote from the script:
Mrs. Wu once said, ‘The happiness and joy we gather in qi gong is ours forever and the anger and sadness we release in qi gong is gone forever.’
THE SECRET LIBRARY
Michael's recovery has been steady as he works with Mrs. Wu to increase his qi. Feeling better he travels with Marlow to a secret library and a sunrise over Mount Rushmore and a sunrise looking out over the San Fransicso Bay.
FROM THE SCRIPT:
‘You handsome men always spend too much qi on your lady friends. Waste of qi. Qi gong is about gathering intent and there is no more qi filled thing than your seed, you know your seed, so don’t go casting it around willy-nilly. Waste of good intent.’ Mrs. Wu
BEERS AND A BUMPER TO THE FACE
Michael and Marlow attempt to draw Angela, A.K.A Officer Sanchez out so that Marlow can read her thoughts. Marlow has been suspicious of her police work and needs to read her himself to discover the truth.
But the danger they are in being around Angela is much worse than Michael could have imagined.
FROM THE SCRIPT:
Marlow paused in thought. ‘Failure and success are too binary. Did you do the right thing – no – did you survive yes. So, listen, if someone holds a gun to the back of your head ever again – especially someone you’ve seen execute someone – you return to your body immediately.’
YOSHI'S GAMBLING DEN
Michael is encouraged to find a way to start earning money and changing his financial situation. He knows one thing, knowledge in a poker game is certainly power, so he wants to try out his new mind reading skills on his old poker buddies.

A SLAP OF REALITY: Marlow puts the classic novel The Alchemist in Michael's hands before Michael passes out for a much-needed rest.
