Faceoff

They approach Paraguay, which approach is made manifest with the strumming of the vaguely Latin acoustic guitar on the soundtrack. Jesus.

A GIGANTIC AD FOR THE UPCOMING PHENOMENON TAKES UP THE BOTTOM 25 PERCENT OF THE SCREEN FOR A WHILE, BUT IT'S PRETTY MUCH TOTALLY UNOBTRUSIVE.

In "Ciudad Del Este, Paraguay," Jaime and Antonio are in a car receiving information from Antonio's cop friend. He talks about how dangerous and complicated Paraguay is, and says that Stevens is being held in a spot where "access is blocked by an exhaust fan." Wow. If only Antonio knew someone who could stop an exhaust fan, that would be handy. The guy tells them that if they're caught, the police won't help. "This is suicide," he offers helpfully. Jaime looks nervous. She's never done something that's suicide before.

Jaime and Antonio approach the big, whirring exhaust fan through which you can apparently crawl to access the bad place where they're holding the hostage. Antonio orders Jaime to get them through the fan. She tears off the grate. She balks at sticking her hand in the big fan blades, pointing out that her hand may be fake, but it's "still attached." Heh. She steadies herself and looks ahead, checking out the maze of visible green lasers that apparently make up the security system they'll be facing once they clear the fan and come out on the set of Mission: Impossible. For fuck's sake. Jaime's bionic eye checks the fan and gives her a readout of its "velocity," "pressure," and "speed (meters per second)." I hate to point this out, but if "velocity" is expressed as just a number, as it appears that it is, then I don't think it's really different from "speed (meters per second)," and she wouldn't really need both. Why does "speed" give the units, and "velocity" and "pressure" don't? This bionic eye needs an instruction manual! Jaime listens to the whirring, there's a vague echo of the old bionic sound (which is a great idea and a nice touch), and she sticks her hand in and stops the fan. She bends back the blade, and she and Antonio walk through. Now, the green lasers. She asks "what now," and he surveys the lasers for a moment, then walks straight into them. Alarms go, and he kneels, putting his hands on his head. She freaks out, asking him what the hell he's doing. He recommends she do as he's doing so she won't get shot. She kneels. She whimpers that he promised she could trust him. Bionic betrayal! They should totally have made that the episode title.
