13 Model Pieces

  • PATRICIA printed these out for The Contact.
  • I could not actually get this assembled myself, but if you look closely at the pieces, three of them have letters printed on them: ATG.
    • This is the password to Alosha's data cache on the website.

Coded Message 1

  • This is the message that has elements at the beginning of each paragraph.
  • Find the atomic number of each element to discover the number of times to shift the coded letters within that paragraph.
    • Hydrogen = 1 (shift 1 back)
    • Nitrogen = 7 (shift 7 back)
    • Carbon = 6 (shift 6 back)
    • Hydrogen = 1 (shift 1 back)
    • Helium = 2 (shift 2 back)
    • Sodium = 11 (shift 11 back)
    • Oxygen = 8 (shift 8 back)
    • Neon = 10 (shift 10 back)
    • Argon = 18 (shift 18 back)
    • Hydrogen = 1 (shift 1 back)
  • Once decoded, the coded words read:
    • BOTANY LAB
    • ISSUE/DISCUSSING
    • IT IS/EVEN WORSE THAN WE THOUGHT
    • REPORT ON THE VIRUS/IF WE'RE RIGHT
    • IMMUNE/LAST A DAY OUT THERE/NEED ME HERE/STICK AROUND
    • BREAK SECURITY PROTOCOL/VIRUS/FOOD SUPPLY/PERSEPHONE
    • YOU'RE HERE NOW/SIMONE
    • ROOT VEGETABLES
    • THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT
    • I KNOW

Coded Message 2

  • This is the piece of paper with numbers.
  • In the first sentence, the incorrectly capitalized letters spell out "ASCII".
    • This is the type of cipher we must use to decode the messages.
  • Once decoded, the coded words read:
    • You were right/population/open/Lock-in
    • dangerous/surface/vote/take place/safe
    • official support/endorsement/public opinion
    • The Council/public well-being/public opinion
    • we/present/united front
    • my stance/Cyril/others/vote/us/making/choices/railroad
    • Understood

Coded Message 3

  • This is the worn-looking piece of paper.
  • In the paragraph, before the coded words start, is the word "Widdershins".
    • Widdershins means clockwise, and Alosha says to only use it once.
  • So, to decode the words, shift each letter ahead one time.
  • Once decoded, the words read:
    • STRANGE ON SYSTEM
    • SECRETS
    • INFORMATION
    • SAFE
    • HISTORY
    • PROTECT
    • MY SECURITY
    • CAUGHT HIM
    • HE
    • DEAD
    • INSIDE JOB
    • REJECTED
    • I AM WRONG
    • DISCUSS *obhovoryty = "to discuss it" in Ukrainian
    • BURN AFTER READING

Contact Letter

  • Apparently, the information we shared with The Contact in Episode 1 was leaked to the public. PATRICIA doesn't know who did it.
    • I think PATRICIA has become self-aware and did it herself.

Field Notes

  • These are notes from Persephone's last expedition.
  • She took her hazmat suit off on purpose!
    • Did she find something that suggested the environment was safe for exposure again?
    • Was that why she was murdered? Someone doesn't want people to know they can leave the bunker?
  • The DNA symbol drawn at the bottom of the first page is similar to that of the necklace we received.
    • The symbol is under the word "pear". "Pear" is the password to the USB file.
  • Her last entry is from right before we entered the compound... So sad she didn't make it back to tell others the truth.

Incident Report

  • Why are they still using this type of IR form when the FBI surely no longer exists? lol
  • So, there was a security breach and a lot of sensitive information was stolen, including from PATRICIA's system.
    • Could someone have hacked her system, and that's how the information we found in Episode 1 was leaked?
  • At the bottom of the backside, there is a message written in Russian or Ukrainian... WTF...
    • This is actually a coded message.
    • Russian alphabet to English alphabet: GOLODNIJ VOVK SIL'NISE, NIZ ZADOVOLENA SOBAKA.
    • Ukrainian alphabet to English alphabet: HOLODNYJ VOVK SYL'NISE, NIZ ZADOVOLENA SOBAKA.
    • Neither one translates into anything in English... and the recaps do not address this message...

Item Recovery List

  • This is a list of items recovered from Persephone Grace's body.
  • The hazmat suit she was wearing is the one not accounted for on the website.
    • Why would her hazmat suit be stuffed into her backpack?
    • Was it removed before or after she was attacked and killed?
  • Persephone had a knife and handaxe on her when she went out.
    • Was one of these the murder weapon? Or, perhaps, both?

Necklace

  • Persephone wore this necklace when she was alive. It has a DNA symbol.

Password Card

  • This time, Rule 4 is referenced.
  • Using the same trick as in Episode 1, shift the letters back 4 times.
  • Once decoded, the password is:
    • "motherboard"

USB

  • This was found wrapped in a necklace that Persephone always wore.
  • The Contact instructs us to plug it into a computer once we have found what we're looking for.
    • We should then tell PATRICIA "Ryloth".
  • Use the password "pear" to unlock the autopsy file.
    • We learn what the aliens look like.
    • Apparently, they were able to perform an autopsy of sorts on one...
