Pop quiz time! If you were Jolly, what would you do at this point? Would you wait until Sterling and Simon were out of sight, then call in a report that two gun-toting loons were loose in the airport? Or would you believe their story? If you believed their story, would you just sit there at your station or would you contact someone about TSA Andy and the bioweapon? Well, here's what Jolly actually does: we have no idea. We never see him again. I can only assume he shrugged and ignored the whole situation. That's one hell of a security guard right there.
Carlos and Sophia sneak into a room. Sterling and Simon creep through the back of the baggage claim area. There are a lot of cool conveyer belts back here, so it makes a neat location. Sterling and Simon spot TSA Andy and shoot at him, but they're all the way on the other side of the room and miss. He shoots back and now we're in another of those scenes where people are hiding behind stuff and shooting at each other and no one's hitting anything. This is something I learned from The Wire: if you want to be successful in a shootout, first you walk up to the person. Then you shoot them. That's how Omar, Brother Mouzone, Snoop, and all the really successful assassins do it. It's the people who start shooting when they're three blocks away that never hit anything and cause the shootouts. That's right, I just proposed that there is a way in which The Wire is better than The Event. I'm not afraid to take a stand!
TSA Andy manages to shoot Simon in the leg and chest and pushes his cart away. Sterling gets to Simon, and we learn that he had a bulletproof vest on. I guess that was an attempt to make us think that Simon had been killed, but I honestly didn't notice Simon getting hit in the chest until he made a big deal out of having had a vest. TSA Andy has gotten away, but Sterling calls Sean with some information: he's 5'9", has dark hair, and is in a TSA uniform. Great, so Sean is going to go around tackling TSA agents. That'll work fine. Actually, he and Vicky decide they need to get to "the secure side" so they actually do tackle someone who's opening a secure door. On the other side of the door, they knock their guy out and run. So now there's an unconscious person lying next to one of the secure doors. Good thing that's not the sort of thing that raises suspicions.
