Theo is typing commands into the facilities management computer. On a nearby computer screen, the six low-rise elevator banks are listed as “LOCKED OUT.”

On another screen, the high-rise express elevators between floors 29 and 34 are also “LOCKED OUT,” with an elevator parked on the 32nd floor. The service elevator is listed at floor 31.

Theo types in another command and finishes with a flourish by clicking the Enter key with an overhand reach from the left.

The automated doors of the parking garage roll shut.

The escalators come to a halt.

Additional parking ramps are cordoned off with automated roll-down gates.

Theo continues to type on the facilities computer. All the parking garage gates are now shut. The building is now a cage and a fortress.

Hans and Eddie step out of the elevator on the Lobby level, while the rest of the henchmen remain in the elevator.

Theo makes some final alterations on the facilities computer, then rips the data cables out from underneath the computer’s desk. Sparks fly, as Theo sings a wordless song while kicking equipment cabinets, knocking out more equipment.

Meanwhile in the lobby, Eddie passes a satchel to Karl, while Karl hands off a key card to Hans.
