  • Bombs aren't the only thing that's painful.

    The "Dead Letter" is Y as the unit tries to grapple with the latest twist in bomb disarmment. Brian gets posted to Cambridge to work with Dr. Gillespie and his assistant on a way to defuse this one, which leads to an uncomfortable reunion with Susan (not sure which would be worse, a bomb exploding or a broken heart revisited). They decide the best way to deal with the bomb is to use liquid oxygen to freeze the battery in the fuse, rendering it harmless (yea, -22 degrees Centigrade should do it). The process is long but it works. The episode ends with a twist of fate for Brian and Susan.
