  1. While I can certainly understand why the Centre would want to track down a collaborator/war criminal, having her assassinated like they did would serve no real purpose politically or ideologically. She would simply be the victim of some random home invasion murder that would have no connection to her past. It would make more sense to me for the Centre to have P&E snatch her and put her on trial in the USSR (like Israel did with Eichmann). That provides them with a moral justification for executing her and lets her serve as example of what happens to collaborators and war criminals. Alternatively, they could expose her in the US and get the US government to deport her; this has happened to war criminals found living years later in the States, although not sure if any were sent back to Russia. In any event, it hardly seems worth risking two valuable agents on this. A lot could go wrong even on a simple hit like this.
  2. Deleted scene Flunky: Hey boss, you want to wrap a chain around that girl agent's neck and toss her overboard? Lozano: No. When we get to Baltimore stick her in the van with the bomb and drive her to DC Flunky: Really? Would' t it make more sense just to get rid of .... Lozano: Don't argue. Just do it. Oh, and Don't forget to wire that big digital timer into the firing circuit. That way everyone will know it's a real bomb. All real bombs have a clock showing exactly when it will go off.
  3. Dutch and German are very similar. Dutch would be "Wij hebben de moeder" (Also the cc showed "Speaking Dutch: We have the mother.")
  4. The Blackjack guy was Dutch. Listed in the cast as van Westerdam. He also showed up in the earlier Episode where he and other Blackjacks were in northern England looking for the British resistor's mother. He was speaking Dutch in that scene.
  5. Re M-H inventories: I went back and looked again at the segment where Max reports the inventory shortage. It appears that it's more than a discrepancy in unit costs as speculated above--while this a part of it, there also appears to be a lot of physical inventory unaccounted for. Max said there was supposed to be 120 pallets of product in inventory but the distributor only delivered 33. Max used this to reduce the value of the inventory to $70K. Marcus further reduced it to $47K when he applied the $1.79 unit cost Max provided. An inventory shortfall like this can't be explained away as a simple mistake in counting pallets. Some possibilities: 1. Employee or contractor theft: but who the hell steals toilet cleaner? We're not talking high end electronics. 2. Max and hubby selling inventory and diverting revenues to their personal account. This might help explain their lavish lifestyle. If this is the case Max better hope no one from the IRS was watching this show. 3. There really is no missing inventory and Max just made up a bunch of numbers to inflate her balance sheet to hook Marcus. People go to jail for that sort of thing.
  6. It wasn't clear to me why this potential franchisee was even considering taking out a franchise. What exactly would he be getting for his franchise fee? The right to use a very forgettable name and generic decor? Name recognition, based on what, a single store? Hamburger recipes? A wildly successful business model? Business advice from 5 meat heads? Walk away, Mr Franchisee. You can do better than this
