...and when they round a corner, they see Tracy holding a guy hostage with her chains around his neck, surrounded by several other employees. Now, I think Tracy would be too smart for this -- she heard Abby say she was going to shut the operation down, so why take this rather obvious bait? I mean, even now, she sees Abby standing there, so why not go quietly, since it's pretty obvious she's not going to be allowed to escape? If we were dealing with a hotheaded, impulsive character, it wouldn't bother me, but Tracy's supposed to know all the angles. This development is too easy and not well done. Regardless, the guy elbows Tracy in the stomach and tries to attack her (not that anyone seems to notice that bit) and she responds by grabbing his arm, freezing him, and throwing him into the wall, on which he shatters rather spectacularly. She then gives Nathan a baleful look before she's taken down. Nathan's then all "See? See?" in Abby's direction, and Abby, for her part, looks like she's going to need some help getting her chin off the floor.
When we come back, Abby's back at the bulletin board, and she tells Nathan he'll have all the funding he needs. I asked this before, but: What did you expect? You treat someone like an animal and then label her a murderer when she kills with her back to the wall? I'd expect that kind of reductive reasoning from Neocon Nathan, but it seems like a big about-face for Abby. Like I said, this part of the story is too easy.
In Costa Verde, Sandra apologizes for prying about the trip, but wonders if they had any fun -- maybe they saw a Broadway show? Claire: "Dad was a little busy...abducting innocent people." In fairness, some Broadway shows have nearly driven me to do the same. As Sandra listens in chagrin, Claire lays it all out about the government program, mentioning the camp-like atmosphere and the hunting of harmless people, and apologizes, saying she just can't lie to Sandra anymore. Just then, Bennet comes home and, referring to the bag in his hand, uncertainly asks, "Indian food?" Well, Bennet, the good news is you'll have leftovers. Sandra instructs Claire to go on upstairs, and the steel in her voice makes me laugh at the fact Bennet was afraid of Danko all this time. She starts in immediately, saying she thought he could change. He counters that he doesn't have a choice, an assertion to which Sandra loudly puts paid, and Claire is listening but I have the feeling it's getting ugly enough that she's closing the door real soon.
