Well, now. Isn't that convenient of Marshall to have thought ahead and packed not one but TWO sleekly hidden parachutes? THE FUCK? I might be able to buy that Marshall's such a scaredy-cat that he wouldn't ride on an airplane without a hidden parachute, and I might even be able to buy that airport security would ALLOW such a thing to pass through their security system if the person were in the CIA, but I do NOT buy that SDAP and his minions of death didn't catch on to the hidden parachute while they were kicking the shit out of Marshall. Don't buy that one little bit.
Hey, writers. Pass the hookah. The episode's almost over and I still don't know what the fuck is going on.
Oops Center. Kendall's still on Irina's back about the access points. Without acknowledging his existence, Irina finds the overlapping point and states, "The overlapping access point. As promised." She stands up and Rick moves over, getting back to business. "Close the access point," says Irina as the guards lock up her hands again, "and SD-6 will be shut out." She exits with the marshals as Rick informs Kendall that it's a match. Kendall looks far too pleased with himself for a man who, up until about two seconds ago, was bitching and moaning at the woman RESPONSIBLE for the match.
Sloane's Office Of Particularly Putrid Plotlines. Once again, Sloane's chatting with Alain. He's in the process of informing Alain that Echelon's at the disposal of SD-6 when Geeky Guy enters and says that something's happened. By his tone, we're pretty much under the impression that this "something" isn't exactly good.
Subbasement Of Dreams And Desires. As The Satellite Of Swoops And Sorrows flicks off into the distance, we hear Syd blathering about how Marshall saved everyone's lives and she returned the favor by bringing him back to SD-6. Shut up, Syd. Vaughn's all, honey. Please. Don't be so hard on yourself. We couldn't bring Marshall into the CIA. It didn't make sense, you know? Syd's all, I know, I know. It's just that, like, Marshall doesn't know for whom he's really working. Oh, and what'd I say about the "honey" shit, huh? Where's Alice? Huh? Her dad still dead? How 'bout her mom? You gonna stick around until ALL her loved ones kick the bucket? Dump that bitch already and do me right, okay? I'm losing patience.
SD-6. As The Moany Music Of Sad-Voiced Guitarists warbles across the soundtrack, we see Marshall hanging out with his fellow "agents." They're all congratulatory and slapping his back. Dix hugs him. Syd walks by and pulls her sad clown face as she watches Marshall living the lie. Then Sloane walks up and shakes his hand, pulling Marshall into an embrace that, considering Sloane pretty much gave him up for dead not two days ago, chills Syd, and us, to the bone.
