[S5E15] And The Great Escape

Martok assists Worf back to the cell, returning from his seventh hand-to-hand victory. Bashir patches him up as best as he can, while Martok pledges to commission an epic song about Worf's trials. Bashir asks the General to be sure to send him a copy, and Martok says he can do better: he can ensure Bashir is commemorated as well, as \"the healer that bound the warrior's wounds so he could fight again!\" Worf wryly remarks that the only part of the song he wants to hear is the part that tells of their escape. Bashir grows grave as he says that, with Garak out of action, they need to come up with a new plan.
Aboard the runabout, Garak immediately lays in an escape course, while Martok and Bashir help a badly-injured Worf to one of the cabins in the back. Before going, Worf makes sure to tell the Cardassian that he \"did well,\" and Garak returns the compliment. The crew then set a course back to the station at maximum warp.
In writing the script for the episode, Lieberstein said he sought to appeal to newcomers to the series and attract them to the show, without alienating regular viewers: \"We wanted to do a stand-alone comedy episode that could bring people in.\" Lieberstein said the script drew less attention to long-standing story arcs, which new viewers would not understand. Lieberstein said, \"It almost had an air of a pilot in a way, where we had to reintroduce everything. We wanted it to be extremely funny and extremely funny up front.\" The Office creator Greg Daniels said he felt the episode had to focus on physical comedy and easily accessible set pieces. Daniels said, \"I looked at all the shows that followed the Super Bowl in years past and I feel that a comedy would be a good choice in the current climate. People want to laugh so we're trying our best to supply some laughs.\" Actor Rainn Wilson said of the episode, \"It's a great opportunity for people to revisit the world of The Office and hopefully get into our style of comedy.\"
The two parts of \"Stress Relief\" ran an hour long (including commercials), compared to the typical half-hour length of most The Office episodes. Since the end of the second season, the series had begun occasionally showing longer episodes (which they dubbed \"super-sized\") on special occasions. Unlike other episodes of The Office, \"Stress Relief\" included an extended main title sequence that included the names and images of the entire supporting cast of the series, in order to afford them recognition in anticipation of the high post-Super Bowl viewership. The opening scene, in which the characters frantically scramble to escape the Dunder Mifflin office due to what they believe is a fire, took about a day-and-a-half to shoot. It took much longer than the average 45 minutes of shooting time for a scene of that length due to the amount of stunt work involved. Due to the pressure of following the Super Bowl, actress Jenna Fischer said, \"I don't think we've ever worked so hard on an episode in the history of our show.\" The Office actor and writer B. J. Novak, who did not appear in \"Stress Relief\", said of the episode, \"It's awesome. After this airs, people are going to refer to the Super Bowl as the Pre-Office Football Spectacular.\"
I will not miss him in the slightest. Still, I'm puzzled by his departure. Why exactly was this character introduced to begin with Major characters typically serve some kind of purpose. Heahmund was a great warrior but his warrior skills never won the day. He was on the losing side of virtually every battle and when his team finally won, he didn't make it.
In any case, this was a better episode than the last few and much of what came in the ten episodes in Season 5A. It's still not great TV. I'm still mostly a little bored and irritated by it. But at least we've slimmed the cast down, removing the most irritating English character in one fell swoop. And there's a new mystery: Lagertha is not among the living or the dead after the battle. She has simply vanished. It doesn't look like she's with Harald, either, so we'll have to wait until next week to hopefully find out what's happened to her.
Tom is also an idiot. He, too, has straw for brains. Tom literally dies filming this PSA. He dies because he doesn't have the wherewithal to run off a bridge that's collapsing, instead filming himself talking about \"why this matters\" or some such nonsense. And the rest of the survivors mourn his passing and talk about how he sacrificed himself for the greater good.
He did not sacrifice himself for the greater good. Tom died because he was a moron and/or because the writers who came up with this gibberish have straw for brains. I mean, they can't write a single scene of dialogue that actually sounds like the way real people talk. Every single line is vague and pretentious and absurd. This isn't how real people interact. This isn't how they talk!
Virginia comes and offers her help. The show still hasn't really established what it is about Virginia that's so bad, or really why she'd kill the people she's killed. She has no real nefarious motivations, but then she kills people randomly, but none of it really makes sense. Negan killed people to send a message, to exert control, but he still had the philosophy that people were the Saviors' greatest resource. I'm not sure why Virginia thinks it was a good idea to kill Logan or why she wanted to kill Tom.
In any case, they make it across the bridge, all except poor stupid Tom. They eulogize him, acting like he sacrificed himself for the greater good. But he didn't do that. He just died a pointless, utterly avoidable death for no reason. He could have just run off the bridge and then taken his stupid selfie. Apparently even his sister didn't like him that much because she doesn't seem too broken up about it.
The woman is a sadistic, well-executed force, and she has the power and ability to take Elijah down with the snap of a finger. Elijah narrowly escaped with his life last time, so the threat of Abril coming for him and dismantling his operation bit by bit was a very real one.
Things could've gone wrong in so many ways. It was nerve-wracking that Celina was the stand-in, and she was in the line of sight and could've gotten shot. Because profiling is great, but it's never foolproof.
While the episode gets some credit for using Cisco to great effect and keeping the infuriatingly over-done Killer Frost/Caitlin Snow dichotomy to a minimum, the sad truth is that a lot of time was sunk into slapdash storylines that were anything but the promised King Shark Vs. Gorilla Grodd.
In the previous episode of The Flash, Barry went into the speed force to accelerate and finish the meta human cure. While Flash was away, Nora got stuck in a time loop where Cicada continued to murder various members of Team Flash. During these various timelines, Cisco went on a recurring date that eventually turned out well. With the help of Team Flash, Nora was able to escape the loop but not before Cicada escaped after 52 different tries.
Nate, Sophie, and Hardison meet in the briefing room. Hardison warns the group that Pallogen is located in Highpoint Tower and that the building is impenetrable. It has the highest possible security because the Federal government uses Highpoint as a secure Internet relay point. Parker and Eliot are already on site trying to get in, and discover that the building has a full wireless lockdown. As they lose contact with the others, Parker realizes that the building has the \"unbeatable\" Steranko Security System. She quickly gets out with Eliot, while Hardison warns the team that they've never beaten a Steranko, only escaped it once. The best he can do is access the hard lines going in and out of the building. Nate says that they have two months to beat the system before Danny died, and Hardison says that they can do it in one.
Sophie prepares for the show's premiere but discovers that her Lady Macbeth hasn't shown up. She worries about her performance but Nate tells her that she'll be great because she always performs well when she's on a job. The play begins in the theater while Parker fires a crossbow line over to Highpoint's roof. As soon as she lands on the roof, the alarms go off and she ducks into an air vent just as the security guards arrive. Once inside, Nate loses contact with her because of the wireless lockdown.
As Sterling removes Nate's handcuffs, Nate informs Casey that five years ago there was a major financial theft and one-third of the world's wealth was electronically embezzled. The rich and powerful knew it was coming and pulled most of their money out in advance. The world governments refused to reveal the full extent of the crime and prosecute because it would have caused an even greater financial panic. The intelligence agencies closed the case and sealed the information away in the black book fail. The black book is moved electronically through the Highpoint server every few months as part of routine maintenance.
Casey still figures that Nate is lying even though he failed, and wonders why. They get a call that the coroner's van has arrived and is picking up three bodies. Sterling realizes that there should be four bodies and tells Casey to bring Nate and every agent they have to the 20th floor server room. As they get there, Casey checks the server and confirms that the black book file has just been loaded onto the server. Sterling figures that Parker is alive and entered the server room earlier... and then never left. Nate has been lying to give Parker time to get the file and then escape.
Sterling realizes that Casey already found the team's escape route: out the elevator shaft and back through the theater. They take a team of agents to search the audience, unaware that Parker, Hardison, and Eliot are posing as soldiers in the production and taking their bows with the rest of the cast.
Once they're unable to find the trio, Sterling asks Nate if he's done and admits that he gave a great performance. Nate tells his former friend that Sophie is the one who taught him how to act. A van pulls up to take Nate to a secret prison and he asks Sterling for one favor. He wants Sterling not to tell anyone that they got the names from the black book. Sterling points out that if he doesn't tell the authorities, the rich and powerful who profited from the financial collapse won't know that every grifter and thief will be coming after them with the stolen information. Casey , overhearing, wonders if Nate is doing the right thing making them pay, and Sterling admits that Nate has that effect on people. He warns Nate that they don't believe in the same things and Nate warns him that one day he'll have to make a choice. Sterling writes something on a file and tosses it into Nate's lap before closing the door and watching the van leave. 59ce067264
