I'm not going into much detail, mostly because I don't have the time right now, so I'm just going to drop in my opinion.
To me, he is either a criminal trying to score something big, while doing his usual "duties", or someone with too much money that lost his track (of
This isn't a spy. At all.
I'm not a spy, not even trained as a spy. My job in the military was in spec ops. And even there, we would never make the mistakes he did.
The very first rule about surveillance is that you don't make your presence noticed, at all. You don't get a 4,000$/month condo to do surveillance
or any kind of operation.
First of all, because it's not worth the money. Agents are paid to do their work, not to do their work comfortably.
Secondly, a condo like that brings a lot of attention. It's not the best thing to get a really cheap one either. The best thing is to blend in. You
don't bring too much attention to yourself, but you shouldn't get "under the radar" either.
To me, this whole attitude of rich boy doesn't make sense. Too many risks.
The "Mona Lisa" that he had relating to the CIA is just painfully stupid. You only do that in two situations:
1- Because you're stupid, and you like to show-off to everyone that you are a spy (what causes death around...2 months after the start of the
2- Because you want to drift the people investigating you. If you show-off as being a CIA agent, but you're actually working for another agency, or
worst, for another country, that is a great way to drift the investigators.
But it's too risky, obvious and the good things are none compared to the bad things that can happen.
The gun manufacturing thing also makes me twitch my nose.
Spies usually avoid all sorts of weapons, and only use them when they really need to. And even then, the agencies try to minimize the exposure at all
costs (thus the numerous *real* gadgets(I'm not talking about Bond stuff)).
His self-exposure, his risky attitudes and his behavior, to me, tells me that he isn't an agent.
Even when agents are trying to pretend that they are NOT agents, you can see the small details that give away the false front.
But not in here. It's too wild to seem real. And when an agent operates wildly, he usually kills himself before risking any kind of capture and
And honestly, to be caught because he was "releasing too many gases"? That's just pathetic. Even a small criminal knows how to hide his lab, let
alone a criminal that can afford a 4,000$ condo.
