The three of them cut through the backyard and peek around the back gate, to where O'Neill has posted an armed sentry on the corner. Fi remarks that the guy doesn't appear to have seen them. So of course Sean pops out and takes a couple of potshots at him, both of which miss. Nicely done. "Well, he's seen us now," Michael leprechauns, and the three of them make a run for it while the sentry runs to report back to O'Neill instead of giving chase. O'Neill orders his men to spread out instead of sending them all in the direction of where his quarry was last seen, which tells me he doesn't deserve to catch them anyway. Meanwhile, Michael and Fi hole up behind (actually, more like next to) a tall hedge while Sean takes off to steal them a car. As soon as Michael's alone with Fi, he drops back into his normal voice to confront her for never having told Sean the truth about him. "Not even a Glenanne would forgive me for working with an American spy," Fi says. "Everyone at home still thinks you're from Kilkenny. Sean can never know." At least not until the end of the episode. Until then, every time Michael's in a scene with Sean, just assume he sounds like he's auditioning to read Angela's Ashes for books on tape unless I say otherwise. Michael dials his cell phone and cuts off Sam's jovial greeting, then says the three of them need a place to hole up in for a while. Sam says he'll make a call, but first Michael asks Sam what he told him about his time in Ireland. "Uh, not much, Mike," Sam admits. As Michael and Fi run to the white sedan Sean just rolled up in, Michael returns to his Irish voice to say, "Well, my name's Michael McBride, and you're just gonna have to roll with it." If only that were the only thing Sam's going to be expected to roll with.
