Rufus wanted to see nobody. Holed up at Marcus's with food supplies being the only reason to open the door, he was in good shape for a long term siege situation.
He busied himself in Marcus's workroom, scouring the Internet to keep his brain active. He kept getting these terrible headaches though, prompting him to connect up to Mac2.

With one such headache distracting him, he was waiting for a delivery of groceries. When the doorbell rang, he automatically went to the door.
He didn't expect what he saw on the doorstep.
