"The best defense isn't always a show of force," Michael VOs as he walks right past Omar's sentries and into the warehouse where Omar's doing inventory. "Keep an adversary in the dark about what you're capable of, and he has to assume the worst." Omar looks up to see him looming there, and nearly pisses himself. So it's clearly working. Omar says he found Rincon, but he's protected. Michael whispers, "You had three hours to give me Rincon, not give me excuses." Omar tells him that Rincon's protector is none other than Vega. Apparently Rincon is Vega's drug supplier. Does Vega know about Rincon's hobby? Does it matter? "Let me worry about that," Michael says, which is so the kind of thing he usually says to his clients that it sounds strange coming from his Louis voice. Omar says he's on the brink of war with Vega already, and Vega will go after his people. This clearly gets to Michael, but he still doesn't break character. "If you don't give me what I want, Vega will be the least of your worries," he threatens. Omar starts writing and gives Michael directions to the safehouse where Vega has Rincon stashed in an abandoned housing project, along with some guards. "You better hurry; and you better pray Vega doesn't find out," he calls out to Michael's departing back.
The next morning, going by the editing, Mack, Sam and Michael are all dressed in black commando gear and making their way down the hallway of an apartment building as Michael VOs, "When you're extracting a heavily guarded target, it's important to choose the right entry point. Guards watch windows and doors. So if you come in through the common wall of a neighboring apartment, you've got surprise on your side. Not to mention a shower of shattered concrete." The stuff on your side would probably not include the neighbors whose apartment you came from, though, which is why it's good for them that this is an abandoned building. Michael pauses in the act of attaching some detcord to the wall and murmurs, "It's a little too quiet in there." And looking out the window, he adds, "And a little too quiet out there, too." As Vega and some of his goons walk into view down below, cutting off the exit from the parking lot, the VO concedes, "Of course, surprise doesn't count for much if you're walking into a trap." Well, no, because it's not surprise any more, derr. Or it is, but not the kind you were going for. They can see Vega's army barricading themselves behind a Dumpster as Mack reports from the apartment door that guys are coming up the stairs. "I hope you brought enough rope, Sam," Michael says. That's what she said.
