When we come back from the titles and the ads, Sean is bitching at Fi about the poor condition of her arsenal at present, while she defensively points out that she's moving and has already smuggled all her big stuff out. Sean accuses her of losing her edge and her accent in America. "O'Neill is looking for an Irish woman," Fi says, and suddenly sounds kind of funny as she yells, "I'm not going to hold up a neon sign that says, here I am, come and blow my head off!'" Why'd she say it so weird? Oh, right, I had forgotten just how terrible Gabrielle Anwar's Irish accent really was. Even worse, it has atrophied with disuse. Watching out the window, Michael asks to be brought into the loop on who's after Fi. Sean tells Michael that the O'Neill Fi just mentioned is a radical bomber from back home. "The kind of man I'd love to kiss with a chainsaw." Michael asks why he's after Fi, but that'll have to wait, because Sean and Fi go back to arguing about armaments, right up until a big black van pulls up outside. As Michael watches, Paul Blackthorne, a.k.a. Stephen Saunders from 24 Season Three and Mr. Brooke Shields from Lipstick Jungle, gets out of the vehicle wearing a bulletproof vest. "That's Thomas O'Neill," Sean says. "Bloodthirsty hooligan got here faster than I expected." The subtitles confirm that this is in fact "Thomas O'Neill -- Bloodthirsty Hooligan." They do not comment on his early arrival. Michael says they have to get out now, but Sean wants to stay and fight, even when Michael points out they're outnumbered by a "trained extraction team. We leave now or we die." We'll see in a minute how Sean will seek to find some middle ground between those two options.
