Inside the house, Coleman greets Gabriel, who is just coming down the stairs. It's Carlos Bernard, Tony from 24, wearing a skanky comb-over across his forehead and doing a vague "Latino" accent. I'd speculate that this rules out an appearance from Tony this season, but Clayne Crawford's role a few episodes ago didn't stop him from also being my least favorite character on 24 as well. The subtitles unhelpfully inform us that Gabriel, the boss, is "Gabriel -- The Boss." He smarms at Fiona, leading her into the living room, but not without her noticing that there's a door at the end of one hallway that has a padlock on it. That certainly doesn't attract attention. In the living room, they're still having their first drink when Gabriel brings up the Madrid thing. "For my money," he comments, "there's nothing quite like an evening stroll down La Rambla." Which is so obviously one of those tests that bad guys always do, at this point it's safer for the good guys just to say they don't know what the bad guys are talking about. But of course Fi has to show off by pointing out that La Rambla is in Barcelona. "You sure you need another drink?" she taunts. What Gabriel wants is to see Fi's passport, and right now. Fi says she doesn't have it on her, like most people don't. "Wherever it is," Gabriel says mildly, "it had better be stamped Barajas Airport, Madrid, 2006. Or we're going to find ourselves a very uncomfortable situation." [What if she took the train? Or used an alias? Or entered illegally? - Zach] As the very large goons in the background somehow become more conspicuous, Michael VOs, "Operate in the field long enough, and you'll find yourself getting tested by very dangerous people." Gabriel wants to know where the passport is now. Fi readily tells them they can find it in her bedroom dresser, in a false bottom in the third drawer, under the alias Kelly Minch. She tosses her keys to the nearest goon, and to her credit, it's not until then that she cuts a dirty look at Coleman. Sucks to be the one whose sidekick's impetuosity and short-sightedness gets you into trouble, isn't it, Fi?
