On the evacuation buses, Kevin is nowhere in site as Allison sits next to Henry. I guess she's been taking parenting lessons from Kylie's parents. I hope someone managed to rescue the poor autistic child from the town facing imminent destruction. Also, Eva is rocking some awesome sunglasses.
Carter and Zane make it back outside and set up the missile. Carter knows enough about the technology to load the ions into it while Zane gets his computer pad going. Even though it's 2,000 degrees outside, the computer works just fine. It must have quite the cooling system! Carter asks if Zane will be using GPS to make sure that their one chance to save the town and themselves works. "I was gonna eyeball it!" Zane says. "Oh. Stellar," Carter groans. Zane gets semi-serious for a minute to tell Carter that "whatever happens, it's been fun." "No, it hasn't!" Carter says. For real. Very little about this episode was fun.
Zane launches the rocket into the bright red sky. His aim is perfect, of course, since we wouldn't have a show if it wasn't, and the mini-sun begins to implode.
And on the evacuation bus, the residents are thrilled when the night sky returns. I loved Fargo and Vince's high-five. Both of these characters used to annoy me but now they're one of my favorite parts of the show. Zoe is so happy that she bumps fists with Fargo. Zane and Carter enjoy the mini-sunset. It's green at the end for some reason. They shake hands, but they still aren't as good a team as Carter and Stark were. But I have a feeling I'm going to have to get used to them.
Allison is back at GD and has not changed out of that awful dress yet, even though it was drenched with sweat before. It's ugly and it probably smells bad now. Yuck. Eva sneaks up behind her and says her precious thermal cleaning was cancelled, and she's got a pretty good idea who's to blame. Allison says Eva may have the DoD on her side, but she's got all of GD on hers, including, it would seem, the Thermal Cleaning department. Sorry, Allison, but I'd take the DoD over GD's House of Goons and Crazies any day. Eva reminds Allison that she works for her. "Not without an explanation," Allison demands. If she doesn't watch herself, that explanation is going to be two words: "You're fired." Eva's fired other people for less. Like the poop guy. Allison says it's just not fair that she's supposed to trust Eva but Eva won't give her any information in return. Yes, Allison -- that's why it's called "trust." Eva dips into her bag of non-answers and tells Allison that "history has a way of haunting you no matter how far you run. This is part of mine and I'm putting it to rest. You stay outta my way." For a little woman with silly red hair, Eva can definitely be menacing when she wants to.
