Ignoring the fact that Vaughn has only recently recovered from being shot a BAJILLION times in the CHEST but is now running down the stairs as if he's never suffered so much as a HEAD COLD in his ENTIRE LIFE, we follow him as he discovers the basement and promptly punches a hole in the wall. Upstairs, SydAnna calls for an extraction and knocks out the clerk. Downstairs, Vaughn climbs through the hole he made and finds a hidden hallway with lights. He comes upon a door with a keypad access panel and promptly bypasses it by ripping it open with his switchblade and hotwiring it. The door slides open and Vaughn hits a light switch. Inside the room is wall after wall of pictures that we never see close up. But there are strings tacked to them with thumb tacks and they're covered in dust. In fact, the whole place seems to be covered in dust and cobwebs. There are several desks, and they're all cowering beneath the weight of layers of file folders. Vaughn goes to open one of them and a gun cocks behind him. "Thanks," says SydAnna. "I've got it from here."
Vaughn turns. "Who are you?" he says calmly. "It's a pity you'll never know," she says, taking aim. And then she goes to shoot him, only…there's no clip in the gun! Oh ho ho! What a surprise! Because a TRAINED ASSASSIN wouldn't recognize the difference between a gun WITH a clip and a gun WITHOUT. I hated this plot device back when it was used with Auntie Katya, okay? But the fact that now Vaughn gets to kick the shit out of SydAnna kind of makes up for it. And you totally know that JJ was all, "Vartan, dude, if you come back on the show, we'll…we'll…we'll let you beat up Jennifer! Ha! Wouldn't that rock?" And Vartan was all, "Look, JJ man, I love you and everything but -- wait. Would I get to physically kick her around? I mean, no doubles or stunt people?" "Well, I'm not sure about th--" "Deal's off." "Okay! No doubles! Just you and Jen!" "Rock on."
Vaughn holds up the clip from the gun and kind of wiggles it at her. "Syd and I never went to Cartagena," he says. SydAnna throws her weight behind a punch, but Vaughn easily counters it and knocks her down, shoving her onto a table and pulling her arm behind her. "And, just for the record," he spits, "you're a terrible kisser." HA! They fight some more and Vaughn punches her in the gut and then delivers a roundhouse punch to her face. Ha! Some more! She goes down, but gets right back up. "I always said Sydney was too good for you," she says, right before she kicks him. They fight some more and there's ups and downs and crowbars to knees and heads through glass until, finally, Vaughn's down and SydAnna's up and she has a gun and she's about to find out if it's loaded when BAM! BAM! BAM! From behind her, three shots ring out and three shots appear in SydAnna's gut. And then, one final shot, to the head. A nice, clear bullet wound practically between SydAnna's eyes.
