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.

  1. Hydrogen = 1 (shift 1 back)
  2. Nitrogen = 7 (shift 7 back)
  3. Carbon = 6 (shift 6 back)
  4. Hydrogen = 1 (shift 1 back)
  5. Helium = 2 (shift 2 back)
  6. Sodium = 11 (shift 11 back)
  7. Oxygen = 8 (shift 8 back)
  8. Neon = 10 (shift 10 back)
  9. Argon = 18 (shift 18 back)
  10. Hydrogen = 1 (shift 1 back)

Once decoded, the coded words read:

  1. BOTANY LAB
  2. ISSUE/DISCUSSING
  3. IT IS/EVEN WORSE THAN WE THOUGHT
  4. REPORT ON THE VIRUS/IF WE'RE RIGHT
  5. IMMUNE/LAST A DAY OUT THERE/NEED ME HERE/STICK AROUND
  6. BREAK SECURITY PROTOCOL/VIRUS/FOOD SUPPLY/PERSEPHONE
  7. YOU'RE HERE NOW/SIMONE
  8. ROOT VEGETABLES
  9. THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT
  10. 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...
