Marcos was taken by surprise as a rock went through the window and a small army laid siege to the warehouse.

It was literally a small army. Kids were everywhere. Craig was tackled by a boy with a homemade Superman T-shirt and another wrapped in aluminum foil. They held him down while a third kid in green pelted him with Nerf arrows.

Victor had no idea what the Asian kid who stood motionless before him, eyes shut tight, was trying to do, but it distracted Victor long enough for the kid’s friends to take him down.

Guillermo was brought down by twenty six preteen girls in ridiculously tight sequined dresses, who pummeled him with their sequentially-numbered stainless steel lunchboxes.

Marcos himself was overwhelmed by a bunch who screamed incomprehensible things at him about “Others,” “the Dharma Initiative,” and “Jacob.” Who the hell was Jacob?

And then they brought in the scary Middle Eastern kid…

By the time the police arrived, Marcos and his crew were begging to be taken away.

    Is this the end? I want to know who the Mastermind is and why he targeted Jason’s dad.

    One typo “And then was before” should be “And that was before” in the 2nd to last paragraph.

    Fixed the typo.

    We’ve still got roughly five and a half story hours to find out who The Mastermind is, as well as resolve Gordon’s issues with Ashton and “Audrey.” Don’t worry, SM, we’ll get to it. Who knows? Marcos et al might not be done yet either…

    Hilarious, and I love the visual of all these kids mimicing their favorite shows or characters. I’m not going to pretend I got all the references, but it really didn’t matter. Fun, fun stuff.
