Characters appearing in this episode




Beck (aka the Renegade)


Able (dies in this episode)



Didja Notice?


After Cyrus tells Beck that he has planted a bomb in Able's garage, he says, "Sometimes a bomb is just a bomb." This is a play on the idiom "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar," a retort against Freudian psychoanalysis that many dream symbols are sexual in nature. 


At 11:48 in the episode, the form of a female figure is seen in a tube behind Able's desk. This form was seen earlier in a different location in his office in "We Both Know How This Ends". The armor has similar markings to those of Yori, Tron's romantic interest in Tron. But we still get no explanation why it's there.

Tron thanks Beck for disabling the bomb attached to his back and Beck says, "Don't thank me, thank Bodhi." Bodhi was one of Beck's co-workers and friend at Able's garage in "Beck's Beginning"; he had invented a recoding tool and gave it to Beck before he died in the Coliseum. Beck uses that same tool here to disable Cyrus' bomb.


Able dies in this episode.
