In Ben’s basement Ben and Mick are telling Jared that Katherine Fitz was The Major and when she dropped off the map it may have been a plan to go after 828ers. Jared decides to inform Saanvi the Major is missing and question her about what she may know.
After Jared leaves, Mick tells Ben he doesn’t have to be everyone’s hero and take on everything for everyone. Ben is terrified if the meth heads are like them they might be able to find Cal, again. She vows she will find them and stop them.
Cal sees a peacock materialize before his eyes as he’s out walking. A picture of it is on Ben’s wall and he suddenly has a Calling about what may be an earthquake. Afterwards a story about a fellow passenger named, Eagan, falls off Ben’s board, making him wonder if the calling was about it him somehow.

Jared comes to talk to Saanvi. Apparently, Zeke is working their as her receptionist as he shows Jared in. He tells her The Major’s daughter, Sarah, came to him looking for her. Just then he gets a call from Mick. Saanvi texts someone.
Ben doesn’t understand why he and Eagan got different parts of the Calling. Eagan reveals he has a photographic memory and thinks they’re supposed to use both their pieces of the calling to do it together. Ben tries to recreate it on a chess board.
Jared arrives at Beverly’s and brings Zeke with him, saying he thought she’d want him there. Maybe not since the one she called was Jared and NOT Zeke. She apologizes for not calling him, first. Jared says hello to Beverly whose lost in the past where Evie is still alive. Zeke feels he can help with Bev’s dementia as his granddad had dementia, too.
Cal comes in saying he saw a peacock and Tarik makes fun of him. Before that he was digging Grace about being upset she wasn’t interviewed by the press about 828. Grace tells him to back-off of Cal and he starts whining about how she left him alone with their father when he was sick and is jealous she made a new family for herself.
Olive takes Angelina to the university. Angelina says she’s almost 30 and she’s never been kissed. TJ sent back a papyrus from Egypt and they’re there to see it. Unfortunately, Levi, the guy working on it gives Olive plenty of tude.
Eagan and Ben figure where their calling is leading them.
Vance finally has enough of the NSA interrogating him. He says after days of this he’s done. The director asks Vance’s old partner if he believes him and he says he does.

Zeke notices a DVD that says for Mick.

Ben and Eagan find the right room and the kid. They also find a gas leak. Eagan says he’ll go turn off the gas leak while Ben gets the kid out of there to safety.
Beverly doesn’t understand why all her things are packed up. Beverly starts freaking out wanting to know where Evie and Glen are. Zeke suddenly feels what Bev is feeling and talks her down.
Olive thinks the papyrus is saying that when you come back you’re being judged.
Grace tells Tarik she couldn’t help him because Cal had leukemia but he’s in remission now. He says he’d have been there for her. She says they can be there for each other now.
Mick takes Angelina to see Pete. Angelina tells Pete she thinks the photo is a sign and that she’s supposed to save him. Pete says he thinks he’s supposed to be with her because of the voice he heard in his head.

Jared tells Sarah the Major was an operative investigating 828 and that she often crossed the line in her investigations. He says that might have something to do with her disappearance.
The director of the NSA says they’re not pursuing charges and he’ll be reinstated in the NSA and Vance says he’s not coming back. He says her operative, The Major, almost killed him.

Powell tells Vance there’s something he wants to show him that will convince Vance not to quit.
Ben takes Caleb, the boy he rescued home. Turns out he’s the brother of meth head, Kory.
Mick decides that they should take care of Beverly instead of sending her to assisted living. She decides she and Zeke will live there with Beverly and believes this is what the Calling wants.
Ben tells Olive that he doesn’t trust Eagan and he’s better at the Callings than they are. Olive shows Ben the papyrus TJ sent home from Egypt.
