In another parking garage, General Von Baldy's under the misimpression that he can dictate the terms to the people holding his daughter hostage. He wants confirmation she's being released. Michael replies, "Sara will be keeping your daughter in custody until she knows we're safely away from this place with nobody trailing us." General Von Baldy rolls his eyes a little at that, then tries another "You can't strike me down, because I will only rise up stronger"-type speech by pointing out that the One World Conspiracy has its poisonous little tentacles in every branch of law enforcement in the U.S., hospitals and the DMV, so "you'll never see us coming." Michael replies, "Actually, once we get Scylla into the right hands, all your agents, all your operations -- it'll all be out in the open. And then everyone will see you coming." Von Baldy rolls his eyes at that too, which is all the excuse Lincoln needs to slam him into the side of an armored truck and keep him immobilized via a chin pinch. "We did this to you. Don't you forget that, old man," he says, just in case General Von Baldy was already prepping his "This ... was clearly a mass hallucination so let us never speak of it again" speech. Von Baldy is so irritated at being called "old," he loses his cool and begins smack-talking Aldo Burrows, alleging that the late papa of prison breakers was not, as previously claimed, a data analyst but was, in fact, an executioner a la Agent Blots Out the Sun. Why either Michael or Linc bother to listen to a word that comes out of that man's mouth is a private mystery to me. I already dread the inevitable "We never knew our father!" hooha in an upcoming episode. So you didn't know him! Short of breaking Jennifer Love Hewitt out of CBS so she can whisper sweet nothings to the unquiet shade of Aldo Burrows now, there's not a damn thing you can do, so let it go.
