Meanwhile, Jim slips out from behind the inner back wall of the canister and starts setting up his pyrosonic in some dark recess of Hope Plaza but is interrupted by a few Phoenix guys, so it's gunfight at Hope Plaza!
Well, first we're going back to Terra Nova, where Skye has come to and radios Taylor to tell him that Lucas got away. "My guess is headed your way." Fortunately for Taylor, I guess he knows exactly which way Lucas is going to be running, so he hides off to the side and then clotheslines his son as Lucas goes running by. And now it's time for father-and-son fisticuffs! Action overload!
Back at Hope Plaza, Jim dispatches all four trained mercenaries in about ten seconds and then finishes setting up the bomb. Phoenix reinforcements arrive, and Jim distracts them by shooting one of those always-handy-in-action-dramas steam pipes, and then hightails it out of there, as explosions start popping up throughout the very-poorly-lit Hope Plaza. Wait, isn't the pyrosonic one big blast that kills everything for miles?
In Terra Nova, Taylor is pounding the ever-lovin' shit out of his own son, even using the always-entertaining slam-him-face first-off-a-tree technique, and then he says that for the first time, he's glad Lucas's mother is dead, what with the shame and all. Lucas, beaten and bloodied on the ground, says it wasn't his fault she died. "Of course it wasn't. Is that what you think?" says Taylor, staring at his son, crying on the ground, begging for forgiveness. Taylor says he's got to answer for what he's done, and Lucas scrambles to his feet, hugs his dad and saying he's sorry, and Taylor hugs him back and says Lucas is still his son -- right before Lucas knifes him in the gut, because who didn't see that coming ? Well, besides Taylor. And, of course, everyone watching.
"You arrogant fool," says Lucas, as Taylor collapses. Lucas's diatribe on how Taylor should be begging for his forgiveness is interrupted by a shot from Skye, wounding him. He stares at her for a moment, then lunges to finish Taylor off, prompting the kill shot from Skye. She attends to a weakening Taylor, and apologizes for killing his son. As you do.
