Of course, it was pretty impressive, the way he pulled it off! Getting transmattered out of the car moments after shooting the Prince, and moments before the guy's bodyguards could react and shoot him was no easy trick! That told her he had serious support behind him – people who had that kind of tech on hand, which wasn't easy to get, didn't come cheap… and neither were the skills to pull it off – had to be in the big leagues! She wondered where he'd gone. To a ship in orbit? A bunker underground?
