Inside the building, Fi wonders why the hostage isn't under guard. "The most careful bad guys don't just watch for tails and wipe off fingerprints," Michael VOs as Gabriel and Fi approach a steel mesh cage. Inside is an unconscious guy in a wheelchair, and right outside the cage is a car battery whose lead wires are hanging over a trough full of gasoline that runs around the outside of the cage at waist level. "If you want to be extra sure you can't be traced, you rig all the evidence against you to start going up in flames if anyone starts looking somewhere they shouldn't," the VO adds. So these booby-traps are eye-activated? Gabriel undoes the padlock on the cage, explaining to Fi that he's got his hostage hooked up to a sedative IV. "You want to end it all, all you do is increase the dosage. Completely painless." That's one he taught the rebels rather than the other way around. As he inserts a full syringe into the IV bag, Michael VOs, "There's a risk with being too obsessed with countersurveillance. Spend your life paranoid, always looking for threats, and it makes it easy for someone to find them for you. Pros call it 'seeing ghosts.'" That's a pretty fancy explanation for the old, "Hey, look out behind you!" trick. Fi pretends to see something in the tall grass outside. While Gabriel goes out to investigate, telling Fi to stay behind, she enters the prisoner's cage, takes the bag off the stand, puts it in King's lap, and wheels him on out of there. Much better that he die of an air embolism than a sedative overdose.
Just now, Sam and Michael are pulling up outside, fortunately on the opposite side of the compound where Fi sent Gabriel. "So where's Fi?" Sam wonders. She's in a hiding spot in the warehouse, watching Gabriel return, and pulling that switchblade out of a pocket in one of her thigh-highs. Gabriel sees the empty cage and angrily starts calling her name. She does the almost-as-old "throw something over there" trick to distract him just long enough to jump out with her knife at his throat, take his gun, and push him away, holding the gun on him and saying she can't let him kill an innocent man. Gabriel yells, "My daughter was innocent! The children his company is killing, they are innocent! Who's protecting them, eh?" A bereaved man employing questionable means to pursue his own version of justice? How did they ever think of Carlos Bernard for this role? Fi makes him get inside his own cage as he asks what she would have done for Claire, and he claims they're the same while Claire locks him in. She doesn't bother to argue, just saying the police will be there soon. He says he can't go to jail. "I only have one thing to live for, an now that's gone!" he hollers. So he bangs on the inside of the cage until the battery leads spark, igniting the gasoline that's laid out in troughs and trenches all over the place without ever seeming to evaporate. In seconds there are fires everywhere as Fi demands the key from him, and he refuses to give it to her. She pulls out her bobby pin and gets to work picking the lock, while he kicks at it so she can leave and tell his people back in Argentina how he blew it and they're on their own. Shit is starting to blow up all around them now. Michael and Sam run into another part of the warehouse, because if you're looking for Fi, it never hurts to follow the trail of explosions. Which are multiplying now. Michael insists on going in after Fi while Sam wheels King out of there, even though Sam says Michael will suffocate. He even drops a "Goddammit" in there, which is a word you don't hear very often in this country on channels you don't have to pay extra for. Michael tries to pull Fiona away, but she's not leaving without Gabriel. Now who's the kidnapper? Finally she gets the lock open, and Michael carries the half-conscious Gabriel out over his shoulder while the place continues blowing itself to shit. Blow, Gabriel, blow.
