Warning: Contains spoilers for Shooter episode 102, "Exfil"
This week, we saw what Bob Lee Swagger can really do. Looks like they picked the wrong guy to frame for assassinating the Ukrainian President (something we also just realized in episode two)! Here are the five coolest things Swagger did this week in his quest to clear his name and expose the real conspiracy -- all in the confines of the Big House. Read the full recap here.
Fighting the Big Bald Inmate
Prison is tough no matter who you are. If prison movies have taught us anything, it’s that the first thing you need to do is pick a fight with the biggest inmate to teach people not to mess with you. Swagger wasn’t playing by those rules. This guy came at him. He may have been three feet taller than Swagger, but he was no match. In their first tussle, Swagger flipped the meathead onto a table.
Making a Sock Weapon
Everyone expects prison inmates to make a shiv to protect themselves, but Swagger has a new trick up his sleeve. He could've just as well filled a sock with rocks from the yard, but he must've found some nice hard game balls in the rec room. He stuffed them in a sock to swing in self-defense. Most badass was how he hid it in the toilet so the guards wouldn't find it until he needed to defend himself.
Backed Into a Corner
Who really thought they could corner Bob Lee Swagger in a prison cell? This dumb guard and his muscle did. This fight scene really made the most of a tight, confined space and showed how Swagger can adapt to any environment. He finally took care of the big inmate by stomping on his neck!
Face-Off With the Prison Guard
This guy was in for it the whole episode, taunting Swagger and provoking prison fights. When he finally pushed Swagger into a corner, literally in the cell fight, Swagger bit his face Hannibal Lecter-style. Marines can improvise!
The Great Escape
Shooter isn't Prison Break so you knew Swagger wasn't going to stay locked up for long. His escape was awesome. After confronting the corrupt guard, Bob Lee stole his uniform to break into the guard tower. Then he hitched a ride on a prison truck, hanging underneath.
No, but seriously, how badass was this?
