Meanwhile (well, five years later, but you know what I mean), Leila's still in a darkened basement. There's a boarded-up window she can reach, but she can't pull the boards off. But then! She spots a piece of broken bottle over by the stairs! It would appear that the jerk left some of his broken glass behind. She grabs it and starts trying to saw at the rope that ties her hands together. I don't think she should bother with that, since the rope is pretty thick and the knot doesn't look that tight. Her hand are in front of her, so I bet she could just untie the knot with her mouth. It's not like she's in a strappado or something. The knot's right there. Upstairs, the jerk comes back into the house and Vicky reports that they haven't gotten any instructions yet. Thrilling!
Sean and Collier pull up in front of a house. Did they just drive to Lubbock? Seriously? That's 871 miles away from Yuma! I guess the Thanksgiving flashback is just there to tell us that Sean has no problem with driving sixteen hours on a whim. But wouldn't you think there would be problems with driving that far while you're a wanted fugitive fleeing the site of a mass murder of Federal agents? At the very least, when they had to stop for gas, they presumably had to pay cash so there wouldn't be a paper trail. And what about the relationship between Collier and Sean? They barely know each other, but they just spent fifteen hours together. Shouldn't that have some effect on the way they talk to each other? This whole thing makes me think that the makers of The Event never looked at a map. Yuma is way over on the west side of Arizona. It's only four hours from Los Angeles.
Okay, anyway. Sorry about that. Let's just move on. Vicky gets a call and says, "Hello. Got it. Understood." She says she'll handle whatever it is. Outside, Sean and Collier bicker about how to handle this. Sean wants a gun, but Collier doesn't trust him with one. "Just stay behind me and keep those eyes open, all right?" is not what Sean was hoping to hear. We're cutting around between Sean and Collier outside, Vicky and the jerk inside, and Leila downstairs. Leila's mostly just digging at the rope with the glass, though, so I might not mention her every time. The jerk and Vicky load their guns. Sean and Collier sneak up. The jerk opens the front door. The door in front of Collier opens ... and it's a completely different person. Ah, the ol' Silence of the Lambs trick. Leila continues to dig at the rope and notices Vicky watching her through a hole in the door. What kind of weirdo house has a door to the basement with a peephole in it? Did this house used to be a speakeasy?
