01x13 - Family Crisis

Post by bunniefuu »

man: Previously on Allegiance...

Sam: Say hello to Oskar Christoph.

If he is here, it is for one reason, and that is to execute Black Dagger.

Oskar: I belong here with you.

And I would be a father to our baby.


Katya: Elizabeth Simpson?

I'm Agent Kim Solloway with the Department of Homeland Security.

This is Christoph, the man you know as Marcos Oliva.

Marcos is not a t*rror1st.

You people are wrong.

Elizabeth: And you're not gonna hurt him.

We'll take him peacefully.

Once you start sh**ting, empty the g*n.

Christoph can't leave here alive.

Alex: If we're right, information on one of these files will be used to k*ll thousands of people.

But you are not right.


I have to thank you, Amor, for reminding me how people really are.

I think I lost...

[g*n] Ah!

Katya: Did you find anything on Elizabeth's computer?

Christoph's target, Williamstown, Pennsylvania, Standard Gas facility.

Sam: We have found a loft space leased under one of his aliases, John Phillips, and we are gonna hit it now.

[alarm beeping]

[device beeping]

[expl*si*n booms]

The Rezident?

I sh**t him and take his place.

Help me, and you're my new number two.

I think you'd be safer going back home.

Sam agreed to put an FBI detail on the house.

Alex: The SVR would never try anything in front of the FBI.

Sarah would be safe there.

[muffled g*n]

Sarah: [sighs] Where is it?

I've looked everywhere.

Where did she put it?

Natalie: What are you doing?

Looking for my tablet.

Mom confiscated it until my next report card.

Doesn't really matter now, does it?

It's not in here.

How do you know that?

'Cause I've known Mom a little longer than you.


Don't say I never gave you anything.


Oh, my God.



I used to want this so bad.


Dad got it for Mom in Paris.

She'd wear it whenever she got really dressed up.

You don't remember?

Mm, I think it was before my time.

I used to think it was the most beautiful thing in the world.

I wanted to wear it to prom, but Mom said I'd lose it.

Yeah, of course she did.

She doesn't trust anyone but herself.


That prom night, Dad was making me and Dan Gerbois take, like, a million pictures before we left.

Of course he was.

And Mom came in and said I was wearing too much makeup.

I was so mad that she said something in front of Dan.

She made me come up here to "fix it."

Oh, my God.

And then we get up here, and, um... she says my makeup is fine.

I look really pretty... but something's missing.

So she pulls out this necklace and, uh, says...

"You can handle it."

Katya: The Standard Gas plant in Williamstown, Pennsylvania.

A man named Oskar Christoph is going to sabotage it.

He's going to tamper with the pressure valves.

No, this is not a thr*at.

I am telling you about a thr*at.

I am not with any group.

Yes, yes, you can trace this number.

[phone beeps]




They hung up on me.

They don't believe me.


Some environmental group has organized a harassment campaign against fracking facilities all over the country.

They said they've had over 1,000 thr*at this week.

I'm sure Christoph is behind that.

This doesn't make sense.

I mean, the SVR needs this to look like an accident.

It's because a U.S. retaliation for a deliberate act would start a w*r.

These valves are 400 pounds of solid steel.

It would take massive amounts of plastic expl*sives to blow these up from the outside.

I mean, it would never look like an accident.

What if he used a much smaller amount of expl*sives, but inside the valves themselves?

Well, it takes a dozen people to switch out these valves.

There's no way that Christoph could rig the expl*sives to them without being seen.

He could if he did it before the valves even reach the site.

With Elizabeth Simpson's files, he would have had access to the entire order history at that plant.

He'd know which vendor was supplying the new valves, along with their exact specifications.

If he acquired valves identical to the new ones, he'd have as much time as he needed to rig them.

He could use a micro-expl*sive, something exotic, moldable.


Extremely potent and totally untraceable.

[expl*si*n booms]

That was only 1/100 of a kilo.

I'd like 50 kilos.

But then all he'd need to do is switch out his valves with the ones sitting in the vendor's warehouse before they were delivered.

And then they would be brought in and installed for him.

Then the weight of the valves would naturally tamp the expl*sives downward, ensuring their full force, going into the gas lines, the storage t*nk, the fracking Wells.

I mean, this is brilliant, actually.

Wouldn't the plant have some sort of safety protocols to prevent f*re from spreading down the pipelines?

Failsafes, yes.

Yes, but someone like Christoph would have figure out a way to turn those off.

Well, he'd have to get into the control room.

Well, he will find a way in.


Katya: Under the right cover.

♪ ♪

Mark: If he got access to the control room, with the right software he could hijack the computer's mainframe, bypass the security protocols...

Patched the security hole in a production facility, backdoor on a server, took me about ten minutes.

[expl*si*n booms]

Mark: Then he would be able to shut off the failsafes, allowing the f*re to spread through the line, increasing the pressure, increasing the volatility.

One spark in the right place...

The whole facility explodes.

Eliminating the evidence that the plant was tampered with.

That's what this is all about, creating a natural gas accident big enough that the American public turn against it as a source of energy.

35 years ago, the partial meltdown at Three Mile Island...

No one was k*lled. No one was even badly injured.

But the country soured on nuclear energy overnight.

There hasn't been a single nuclear plant built since then.

If thousands die, the outcry would be deafening.

The public would insist on a ban on processing plants or pipelines in populated areas.

Not to mention fracking altogether.

Our energy boom collapses overnight.

Russia is restored as the premier energy provider in all of Europe and Western Asia.

The energy prices in the U.S. would quadruple.

And he'll only have to level one town to do it.

And possibly set the entire Marcellus Shale Formation on f*re.

It would burn for a decade, maybe longer.

Alex, when are the valves supposed to be replaced?

Now. They're being replaced now.
