Welcome to Part Two! Thomas tells the Major to call off the guards one at a time. He says he won't let Thomas take over the prison. A goon shoots him dead. That's why I didn't bother learning his name. From now on, if I have to refer to him, he's Major Dead. That's a pretty good pun, actually. I'm happy with it. I think this recap is going well so far. Thomas tells Lt. Greer to do it, and he says the CO needs to do it. The CO? Major Dead. But Thomas has some special kind of procedure he can announce in which guards foolishly march into a trap. Man, why do they even have that procedure? There's such a thing as being too prepared.
The guards are all taken down. Surprise!
Maya, still being interrogated by Sterling, insists that they cannot harm humans, because it violates their basic moral center. Thomas insists that because she killed her boyfriend William, that means she's lying. Technically, that just shows they don't mind killing each other. Maya insists, "If William had talked, it would have only done harm." To contradict her point, Sterling shows her the dead people from the flight. Although they're all alive again, so what's the big deal?
The corporal enters the interrogation to report a Code Eight Lockdown. Code Eight? How many lockdown protocols does this place need? But he tells Sterling that it's probably a drill, sir. Sterling says he's not interrupting his interrogation for a drill. The corporal tells Sterling that everyone is required to do whatever the rule is, but Sterling won't do it. He's head of National Security, dammit. He's entitled to do that. So the corporal reports in that his order has been countermanded by CIA Director Blake Sterling. Thomas is very interested that Sterling is on site. He asks Greer, "Do you know the methods he's used?" Yeah, I do. Mostly big talk and some saber-rattling.
Maya tells Sterling that she hasn't been in contact with Sophia or Thomas, and what he is saying is inconsistent with their morality. She asks what it would take to make him believe her. Nothing, apparently: "At this stage, I'm not sure that's even possible."
The corporal appears to hear something. I'm surprised, because the dramatic music is loud enough to drown out anything. Oh! It's submachine guns! But the goons who have been sent to round up Sterling have apparently started shooting before they had anything to shoot at. So the corporal gets back and reports that they're under attack. And the weapons aren't army issue, apparently, which suggests that the corporal has excellent eyesight. If I turned a corner and there were people shooting at me, I'm not sure I'd take time to register what kind of gun they had. Sterling demands a sidearm, then tells the corporal to unlock Maya. Sterling busts open a window with a chair and the three of them duck behind a door. Sterling shoots both goons coming for them, but one of them is still alive. Since he's still in interrogation mode, he demands, "You're here to break out the prisoners? Which ones?" The goon, who is dying, still manages to gasp out, "All of them. Thomas says we need them all." So now Sterling knows that Thomas is there, and he wants Sterling dead. The other goon is apparently not dead, because he raises a pistol, but the corporal shoots him dead. Well, probably dead. Maya runs. Thomas tells the corporal that they're not leaving here alive, but they do need to stop Thomas from leaving with the prisoners.
