Summary: The more things change...
It was a pure Mexican stand-off.
They’d more or less walked into an ambush because Gene had been too bull-headed to wait for back-up. Meanwhile, the thugs had been stupid enough to think they could shoot their way out with no other means of escape.
Sam could only shake his head at the sheer stupidity of all involved, included whatever omnipotent oaf kept putting him in this position. He was starting to get a disturbing feeling of invulnerability, at least where criminal violence was concerned.
Wouldn’t do to let Gene know that, of course.
Just in case he was wrong.
