At the warehouse where Farhad is with Samir and his men (because let's face it, they stopped being Farhad's men a while ago), the rods are being removed from their case now. The same rods that would have killed Oleg just from getting too close, the same rods that they plan to scatter into fragments as a radiological weapon, and now there's nothing between them and the people who possess them but a couple of yards of empty air. And Bazhaev said what happened to Oleg was a result of him being "careless" with the rods? What did he do, lick them? Pull down his pants and sit on them? Use them as support poles to build a tent that he then slept in for a week? Farhad -- the very person Bazhaev told this to -- watches at 12:32:52 as a crane lifts them clear of the box. "Do you have what you need to turn the rods into a bomb?" he asks. Samir says they're working on it. "Must be difficult at such short notice," Farhad says, clearly fishing for clues that they've been planning this for a while. Samir says they have the explosives, but are still trying to get their hands on a detonator. Farhad says he knows someone who can help with that. It's just that Farhad needs to talk to him in private. So private that no one else can even be on Farhad's end of the call. Samir sends Ali to take Farhad to the office to use the phone there. Farhad and Ali walk off alone while everyone else redirects their attention to the rods, now being lowered back into containment. While walking away through the warehouse, Farhad asks Ali about the target. No answer from Ali. "So many targets in New York. It will be hard to choose," Farhad adds. Still nothing from Ali. So Farhad grabs a gigundous monkey wrench off a workbench he's passing and socks Ali in the gut with it. Clearly Farhad is a man not used to being ignored. Ali goes down and Farhad is about to follow up with a blow to the head when Ali sweeps his feet out from under him and he goes down hard. Farhad is still able to get in one more blow with the wrench before limping away. One of the other guys spots him heading for the exit and raises the alarm. While some of the men follow him, Samir orders Ali to find him at 12:35:03. How hard a chase will this be? Just follow the floppy hair and the smell of cheap Russian perfume.
