Extant Season 1 Episode 6: Nightmares
5 second plot: Ethan has a nightmare. But the thing is: he wasn't programmed to dream. Also: he is getting very smart very quickly. The alien baby is getting in the scientists' heads. And he (it?) isn't happy being locked up. The astronaut that was presumed dead pops up. He steals a very important video and tries to contact Molly.
5 second review: Etan's role is becoming clear. He is getting extremely smart and can help Molly in her search for the truth. There's some cool new future technology stuff in this episode. But the invisible bugging device is taking it a bit too far (and making it a tad too easy). There's also a scene (the one with the changing of the robotic arm) that is very poorly done. That's a very cheap shot.
