Only a norm problem: I was thinking here of a scene from 24 (Season 2?), where Jack is forced to shoot and kill his boss (or someone boss-ish) to prevent the bad guy from detonating a nuke. But we see this happen in a lot of stories… “tell me the code to the Doomsday Machine so I can destroy Earth… or I will kill this puppy!”

On a side-note, these scenes of people sitting around eating are hard to make look interesting.

Anyway, Charisma Epoch has entered the building… and what’s this? She and Kaycee appear to be… talking?!
