Syd takes a vacation from the her work for the Committee and returns to her house in Pasadena. There she discovers a tale of a mysterious haunting and fire from the previous inhabitants. While exploring the house, she starts to remember bits and pieces of her past and finally brings Duncan in to help her sort out the memories. She finally brings her mother to the house to see if she can break through but the child who lived there previously shows up. Syd realizes that the house is on fire and Oliver, who has been watching her, breaks into the laboratory at the last minute and rescues Nora as Syd carries the child to safety.

Observations[edit | edit source]

  • The front door of the Bloom House incorporates a window designed after the Committee's symbol.
  • Dr. Bloom taught his two daughters an acronym (E.N.T.E.R.) and a rhyme to help them remember how to get into his secret room downstairs where he experimented with VR:
    • E is to Enter the closet ourselves
    • N is to Never tell anyone else
    • T is to Tap with your knuckles times three
    • E is for Effort when turning the key
    • R is Run back the latch and find me

Spoilers[edit | edit source]

  • At the end of the episode, we see Mr. X/The Man in amongst the crowd gathered outside the Bloom House.
  • Samantha Bloom is alive.
  • The machinery is located in the Bloom House's basement which takes retinal scans of people who can be used for VR in the future. Nora's apparent illness is not caused by pills and sunglasses, but rather from VR somehow.
