And Walter still seems more oblivious than suspicious and dismisses Astrid's concern over Tom carrying a gun by pointing out it's a dangerous neighborhood. Walter's biggest concern seems to be that there are no almonds there and he scurries off towards the sound of... animal noises? Jesus, Walter!
So they find another part of the warehouse filled with forklifts and shipping containers -- and the sounds of huge beasts. "One of them sounds almost like a rhino, but more nasal," says Walter. More nasal than a rhino? It's a rhino!
Aaaand then the run into Tom again, who maybe should have ESCORTED THEM OFF THE PROPERTY, but at any rate, Tom's got friends including one with a submachine gun. "Go and tell him we have visitors," Tom tells one of the other henchmen. Astrid tries the "I'm with the FBI" route and almost gets shot for it, but a few well-placed kicks buys them a momentary diversion and they start running around between the shipping containers dodging gunfire, with Astrid firing back and taking down one of the gunmen.
But there's only so long you can dodge a crew gunning for you, when you're shepherding a mad septuagenarian scientist and Tom winds up shooting Astrid in the back. She crumples to the floor, an anguished Walter cradling her.
And then along comes Belly. "I'm not sure I ever thought I would see you again. Hello, old friend," he says, strolling up and smiling broadly. You'd never know someone was dying at his feet.
