Now here's where it gets fun. We see the same piece of paper with "TOP SECRET" emblazoned upon it in the hand of a woman walking briskly down a hallway. No, it's not in an envelope. It's just a naked sheet of paper wafting lightly between the fingers of this woman. Facing out, mind you. So anyone can see that she's carrying a TOP SECRET document. She hands it to a man sitting in an office with the nameplate "Senior Administrator" on the wall outside. He picks up the phone.
Then we're in a parking lot, and a young woman is hurriedly exiting her car. It's Paige Turco. Yeah, people tell me she was on Party of Five; I never watched it, so I have no idea what she did on that show. I think I heard she was a drunk or something. Anyway, she's not drunk now. She's just wearing knee-high boots and a trenchcoat, and she's rushing toward the CIA building. A security guard with a barking German shepherd stops her and warns her that running is against the rules here at the Central Intelligence Agency. She apologizes and skitters off.
In the halls of covert operations, Ronny Cox, a.k.a. "Alex Pierce III," or "Big Cheese" as we like to call him, is speeding along while one of his many assistants trails along beside him. She hands him a folder. We can only assume it has a piece of paper within it with TOP SECRET screaming along the top.
Back down in the CIA lobby, Paige is looking slightly overwhelmed at the fact that she's actually entering the actual CIA offices. She walks quickly across the CIA seal on the floor as the camera pulls up to give us the full-screen view of the logo of the agency that makes wire-tapping possible.
"Who's the access agent?" asks Big Cheese in a voice-over. "A Miami national assigned to track Miami exile activity in Havana directed against the Castro government," says Patton, also in a voice-over, as we see him in his office shuffling papers into a folder marked, you guessed it, TOP SECRET. "How solid was this asset?" questions Big Cheese. At least I think he said that; he kind of garbled the last two words. "Dead solid," responds Patton, now standing in the Cheese's office. "He was murdered before he could deliver any specifics." Some random guy with a mustache, otherwise known as Rocky Carroll, says, "So...all we know is that there's a plan to kill Fidel Castro within the next forty-eight hours." "No, we know one more thing," says Big Cheese dryly. "Castro is coming to the U.S. tomorrow. Which means, if this is real...the assassination will happen here."
