In the seventh True Lies episode, a defense contracting firm called Axe Industries, with which Omega Sector often did business, was attacked by unidentified assailants, and the employees were taken hostage. This presented Omega Sector with a new dilemma. This time something weird happened and Gib didn’t show up to tell Harry and the others what was going on. Quinn, a different worker from Omega Sector, arrived to inform them of the problem and to explain what they should do.
Lieutenant Victor Madsen, a former member of the Delta Force who was dismissed from the military in 2016 for professional misconduct and other significant claims, was identified as the leader by the Omega Sector Research Team. Victor had made it very obvious that he would kill all 130 hostages who were inside the facility if he didn’t collect $100 million as compensation for the deaths who had died as a result of the weapons developed and sold to the nation’s defense forces by Axe Industries. The assignment was handed to Harry and his crew to enter the university, eliminate the danger, and free all the captives.
Gib Has Issues With His Father
Quinn claimed that Gib and Trilby were in a meeting, but Harry was familiar with his friend and refused to believe Quinn for even a second. He immediately went to confront Gib and let him know what was going on. A panicked Gib revealed to Harry that Axe Industries had previously been headed by his father, Al Gibson, and that the Omega Sector tactical squad had chosen to bring him on board and familiarize him with the campus’s structure. Gib and his father didn’t get along very well and had been silent to one another for a very long period. In defense of himself, Gib said that his father had never accepted him for who he was and had instead constantly sought to mold his personality and force him to behave in a certain way.
Al had anticipated that his successor would take over his business once he retired and had never wanted his son to work for Omega Sector. But that didn’t happen, and over time their relationship grew sour to the point where they couldn’t stand to be around one another. Harry asked Gib to put his own problems aside for a time and look at the situation logically. Omega Sector sorely required a guide who could show them how to breach the fortress after the FBI was unable to locate a way in.
Al did not miss an opportunity to poke fun at his kid, despite Helen and Harry’s best efforts to defuse the situation. He claimed that if Gib had accepted a position at Axe Industries as opposed to joining the Omega sector against his will, nothing would have transpired. Al informed the others that they could gain access to the entire structure through utility tunnels, but he made it clear that it would not be simple for them to do so.
Why Had Madsen Attacked Axe Industries?
Helen stayed behind to maintain good relations between Gib and his father as Harry, Luther, and Maria entered the tunnel. Al was continually noticing that the structure had undergone a number of architectural alterations. Since he was having trouble directing the on-field agents, he deduced that the building’s architecture had been altered on purpose and that the administration presumably intended certain items to remain hidden from view. Al and Gib were fighting all the time, and they couldn’t figure out which way to go. Harry used his laser cutter to unlock a pipe in the hopes that it would point them in the right direction, but instead a deadly gas burst out of it because he knew they were running out of time.
Harry was rendered blind by the gas fumes, and he writhed in agony, believing that the harm would be irreversible. Quinn answered Gib’s phone right away and told him that Harry’s blindness was only temporary and that it would pass eventually. When Harry, Luther, and Maria became trapped inside the tunnel, they discovered there was no way out. All the tunnels, according to Al, were parallel to one another, and if one person could enter the duct connecting them, they could exit on the other side and unlock the door. Since only she could fit through the duct, Helen made the decision to enter it. Finally, the four of them entered the basement via the tunnels and discovered what Madsen was searching for. Madsen and his men had taken over the area because they were after nerve gas, a deadly material that Axe Industries had been creating recently, rather than money. Due to the highly combustible and volatile nature of the material contained in the cellar, Harry couldn’t see, and they couldn’t even shoot. Helen understood that if they turned off the electricity, Harry wouldn’t be at a disadvantage because even Madsen and his men wouldn’t be able to see clearly in the dark. Harry’s eyes became Helen, and she directed him where to strike. Al and Gib prevented Madsen from escaping and apprehended him while Harry and Helen eliminated the threat.
True Lies Episode 7 Ending Explained: How Did Gib And His Father Reconcile?
By the time True Lies, Episode 7 came to a close, Gib and his father had worked out all of their differences and acknowledged that they had both made mistakes in the past and not fully appreciated one another’s viewpoints. Things between Gib and Gib had become chaotic following the death of Gib’s mother. Al was opposed to Gib taking a life-threatening job with the Omega sector. He was always proud of and loved his son, but he didn’t enjoy that he had started addressing him by name. Gib said that he never once called him his son, always referring to him as Junior instead. Together, they accomplished the assignment, which aided their cause and allowed them to ultimately patch things up and put an end to the ten-year cold war.
Harry had previously believed that asking for assistance was a show of weakness. He detested it so much that he declared he would rather risk his life and go on a mission than struggle on the dance floor when Helen was teaching him salsa. After the mission, Harry came to terms with the truth that he couldn’t have stopped Madsen if Helen hadn’t been there to assist him. Harry recognized he didn’t always have to handle everything on his own and that occasionally, asking for help from others could really make his life a lot easier. She had no intention of challenging his authority.
