Weiss yells out to no one in particular that he's going to the cockpit. Syd, back down with DMG, picks up his gun and aims it at his head. In the cockpit, Weiss pulls the dead pilot off the controls as Dix slides in to take command of the plane. Back with Syd and DMG, there's more pointing of the gun from her and more glowering from him. Back in the cockpit, Dix easily guides the plane back into line as Syd, back with DMG, gains a more solid ground with her aim. "What're you waiting for?" asks DMG. Instead of shooting him, Syd orders him to turn around on his knees so she can take him in. Oh, Syd. Don't you know that you don't know what you're dealing with and that he'd rather die than tell you what he knows? Did our time together in the Amstel Light Warehouse of Useless Interrogation Scenes mean NOTHING to you?
DMG says that she might as well kill him because he won't survive the night in custody. Syd says that if he's willing to cooperate, they can protect him. "No," he says, "you have NO IDEA." In case you weren't clear here, Syd has NO IDEA what she's dealing with. "These people " says DMG. "Who?" asks Syd. DMG answers her by pulling a switch on the ceiling and blowing the cargo door off. He flings out into the sky as Syd watches, barely hanging onto one of the cargo straps. Yeah. This would have worked really well if Syd hadn't already shown us what happens when a plane cabin gets depressurized.
I I just am I alone in thinking that as farfetched as this show tends to be, this episode in particular seems to think we're all a bunch of staple-chewing morons? Like, work WITHIN reality, writers! And for god's sake, don't repeat yourself in situations we can all bust you on by watching previous episodes! We're not eating paste over here, goddammit. We know that niridium doesn't really exist and we know what the HELL happens when a door opens up on an airborne plane. Try to keep up, okay?
Jack's Office of Oh, Whatever The Hell. Jack is saying that the (fake) niridium wasn't being used as an explosive; rather, it was being used to power a cryogenic chamber. Syd is all, the hell? Weiss is all, the hell? Marshall is all, totally, dude! But usually, cryogenic chambers are powered by liquid nitrogen. This one was next-gen cryogenic preservation. Whoever this person was or is, they probably died of a terminal illness and they're using this container to preserve the corpse until a treatment can be found. "Of course, the notion that anyone can actually be revived," says Marshall, "is complete fiction. Believe me, I've tried." Ohhhh-kaaaay. Does anyone want to know what corpses Marshall's attempted to revive? Yeah. Me neither.
