Previously on The Event: Aliens are sad! Yeah, yeah. Your planet's sun is going through the slowest supernova in the universe. Cry me a river, aliens. And Sean and Vicky need to follow Dempsey to France. Let's take this nonsense on the road! Give it some international flavor! Or something!
Back to the action! Sean and Vicky had just threatened the Vice President and escaped through some unguarded doors, so now they're running down the sidewalk, pursued by secret service agents. They get some distance from their pursuers by running across a busy street against the light. Man, first they threaten the VP, then they jaywalk? They're really piling up the offenses here. Also, Sean seems to be a really good runner. He's such a good runner, in fact, that he gets separated from Vicky. He finds himself in an alley populated by a van with the keys in it. And the van's owner, but that's no obstacle to a career criminal like Our Hero, Sean Walker. So he steals the van and takes off. He screeches to a stop almost immediately, but that's because he somehow knew that he had just crossed the sidewalk that Vicky would be running along. She gets in and they drive away. The secret service agents shake their fists in frustration. I'm not sure why they don't shoot at the van as it drives away. Or get on the radio to tell the police. Maybe ask the people in charge of the ubiquitous security cameras to keep track of the van? That might be a good idea. Judging from the scenes in the Situation Room, there are a lot of them, and they can be used to follow people through Washington, DC. But that doesn't occur to these highly-trained agents, so they just stand there as Sean gets away. I've reached the point where I'm rooting for the nameless, faceless goons to catch Sean.
At a darkened street corner somewhere, Sean and Vicky have parked the van so they can switch to their other stolen car. Vicky faces away from the audience so she can take her shirt off for no reason I can see. I mean, I understand why she's doing it in the context of "here is an attractive woman on a television show that would like better ratings, so she's taking her shirt off," but in the context of "we have to get out of the city as quickly as possible because the secret service is after us," I feel like maybe she should save the costume changes for after she's gotten away. And maybe when she's indoors. While she's doing this, she tells Sean that she got him to Jarvis, so now she feels like she's done. Sean disagrees: "Hey. You're done when I say you're done." Then he threatens her son's life again. "When I get Dempsey, you'll be free. That's the only way." So now he wants Vicky to sneak him into France. Do the people who make this show even know where France is? It's hard to sneak someone into a country that's on the other side of an ocean. Especially if they're wanted for murder and terrorism, which I think Sean is. Nobody seems to be looking for him, although there was a scene several episodes ago where Blake Sterling told someone that it was absolutely essential to pick Sean up.
