The IT guy orders the pulse bomb.
Someone in the lower levels hits a switch and some machines starts to move and humm.
The guy calls the IT guy that the pulse bomb has been activated. It will take ten minutes to charge up before it is released.

Rob: I am gonna be pissed if that is all that happens in this episode.
Sarah and Edgar talk about the computer systems McLelland-Forester.
Sarah notices something weird is going up. Edgar can’t get Jack on the phone because the cell lines and land lines aren’t working.

Driscoll tells him that someone from division has come to replace him
Murtz: It’s gonna be Michelle.
Just like Murtz predicted Heller tells Almeida that it is Michelle. He sees her enter the building.
Rob: That ending was wicked!!
Murtz: Oh yeah! The Band is back together!
Romo: What are the odds my computer crashed the day of the EMP episode? Yes my computer did crash. If you can tell when it happened email me and you win a prize.
Murtz: The pulse bomb has many effects tonight. The parallels to inside pulse is quite clear. But who knew they would hit the city that houses Chris Bosh! Romo’s computer crashed, I crashed but the show certainly didn’t. *solemn* almeida son. From this point on please refer to me as Murwan(Murtz) Barnes.
Rob: All I would like to say is that after that ending we should all open a tall frosty one for Almeida. Because after that ending he needs one.
Romo: I liked it when Jack head-butted that dude. The EMP thing seems a little cheesy and stolen from other movies/TV shows but whatever. I hope Almeida throws it to Michelle in the bathroom on a break. After he gives it to her he should tell her that is what she has been missing all this time.
