Admiral Forrest orders Archer to take some time off, and Archer goes rock climbing with Captain Hernandez.
T'Pol invites Commander Tucker to visit her mother's house on Vulcan. T'Pol learns that her mother, T'Les, was forced to resign from her job as an instructor at the Science Academy following the incident at P'Jem, for which Vulcan authorities blame T'Pol. Koss, T'Pol's fiancé in a traditional arranged marriage, visits and tells T'Pol that his father, a senior minister, could reinstate her mother if T'Pol marries him.
