With Peter hospitalized, Astrid channels Walter's despondency into tackling the problem of dry lightning storms unleashed by the machine. Olivia, meanwhile, joins Sam Weiss to raid a crypt for an ancient lockbox containing "a crowbar" that will help her open up the doomsday machine for Peter, followed by a raid on an electrified museum for its hidden key. With everyone gone and the hospital inundated with burn victims, Peter awakens, alone, suffering memory loss, and wanting to go home. Written by

Walter, flying his kite, defies the storm saying, "Strike me down you sprites, you elves, you glorious blue jets ". The lightning we normally see is an electric discharge between a cloud and the ground. In 1989, for the first time, electrical discharges were recorded between the tops of storm clouds and the ionosphere. The most common upper atmosphere lightnings are 'red sptites', 'ELVES', and 'blue jets'. See more
(at around 10 mins) When Walter flies a kite to attract lightning, "wind" blows his and Astrid's hair along with other items in very close proximity to them, yet neither the trees in the background or behind the kite nor anything else in the surrounding area move at all, nor is the kite properly constructed in a manner that would allow it to actually "fly" even if there was wind.
