Then he clicks the phone shut, which sends Von Baldy into a towering snit. Michael says coolly, "You can talk to your daughter after we've left with Scylla." Von Baldy gives Michael an outraged, impotent look. (Again, props to Leon Russum because he plays the guy's unraveling with total finesse.) He tries with "I read enough intel on your girlfriend to know she wouldn't hurt a fly." Did he read the briefing that explained what happened to Agent Kim? Because I'm thinking if you questioned him (via Ouija board, of course), he'd beg to differ. Michael says, "Maybe three months ago. She's changed. We've all changed." Then he holds up the list he'd been writing; we see that it's a list of everyone General Von Baldy's killed. Presumably it only covers the last three months, because I refuse to believe that one ascends to the top of the One World Conspiracy on the first-do-no-harm platform. Michael asks, "Fathers, sons, friends ... do you really think your daughter's life is worth any more than theirs?" To his detriment, Von Baldy does not immediately answer yes. Oh, that'll make for an awkward family reunion later. Michael explains, "One of two things is going to happen now: you're going to let us go, or Lisa will die. Either one is fine with me." The general resumes his usual calm voice and asks, "Just don't hurt her." In equally measured tones, Michael replies, "Just hold up your end of the deal, and we won't." Linc moves in then and requests, "You ordered Scylla to be moved. Show us how." Keeping Michael fixed with a death glare, Von Baldy announces he's walking everyone down and heads out the office. Team Scylla strolls out the door.
