The only way for them to get into Philly, unseen, is by underground tunnel. Nora warns them that they could be boobytrapped. Ok, so we know, somehow Charlie will be caught in one of these traps, right?
Miles and one of the RLs are talking- Miles thanks the one RL for getting the other RL on his side. The way the RL sees it, he either gets Monroe or Miles. It’s a win/win for him.
As Charlie and Nora walk through the tunnel, they are having a little girl talk. Nora tells Charlie that when Miles was in the Militia he tried to assassinate Monroe, but he couldn’t pull the trigger. Suddenly, Nora hears something and yells FREEZE!!!
Freeze Tag! Charlie is IT
Nora realizes that Charlie is standing on a mine. Maybe Miles can have a sword fight with it???
Cut to Rachel, rocking out to some ZeppElin’s “Since I’ve been loving you,” while working in her makeshift laboratory.
So what are we looking at here? A Flux Capacitor?
Neville enters with a Milita Dude, and asks Rachel to explain what she is building. Rachel tells them it is an amplifier. The pendant, she explains, is like a wireless battery and it can give power to devices within a limited range- 8 to 10 feet. So the pendant can be plugged into the booster or amplifier and can power up anything within a half mile radius. Jets, Tanks, etc. Neville wants to know when it can be ready and seems suspicious. Rachel asks “You really mean when can you kill hundreds of people? Soon.” Hmm, something seems a little weird. But hey ,it’s science, I admittedly, am a science (and math) moron.
Back in the subway, Nora clears everyone out, except, of course, Charlie who is told to not move a muscle.
I’m da bomb
But The Misfits won’t leave Charlie, despite her encouraging them to do so.
Nora tries to deactivate the bomb using a swiss army knife, a banana peel and a paperclip- MacGyver Style. She thinks she has it, but, there COULD be another bomb underneath it. They plan for Charlie to step off the mine and for all of them to RUN LIKE HELL. Solid plan.
Charlie steps off.
Mine blows up and destroys the tunnel, but, the Misfits are all okay. Phew. I did NOT see THAT coming.
Yeah, we are probably NOT going to get out that way…
Sometime later, Aaron is walking through the tunnel with a young Rebel Gal, her name is Ashley.
Don’t get too attached, she’ll probably get killed in the next scene
