Fran and Jamie stake out an arms dealer, Rear Window style, with a sniper rifle. But the hit gets derailed when Jamie gets distracted by goings-on next door.

Further details

After picking Jamie up from Kat's luxury mansion - where Jamie is now apparently living - she and Fran start staking out an arms dealer, Rear Window style, with a sniper gun. It's hard to get a direct shot until he moves, and the pair grow increasingly bored, putting voices to people in other flats and bickering about what to watch at the movie night Kat's invited Fran to.

Things go up a gear when, in the next door flat to the arms dealer, Jamie spots an armed woman acting suspiciously. When Fran sends her over to rouse the target so she can get a hit, Jamie can't help but investigate the suspicious flat, only to discover it's a harmless - albeit weird - sex game. But the dominatrix won't let Jamie go, and a fight ensues - mirroring the fight Fran is having with a rival sniper she's just discovered trying to take out the same arms dealer. Fran prevails, but Jamie's noisy scuffle provokes the paranoid dealer to come and investigate. This gives Jamie - now she's knocked the woman out cold - an opportunity to slip into his flat. But Jamie's unable to arm herself in time, and the dealer returns and captures her. It's the moment of truth for Fran's sniper skills, and she lucks out with a direct hit to the dealer's head. They head back to the mansion, elated, when Kat suddenly uninvites Fran to the movie night. Deflated, Fran can't resist having a peek through the window, jealously spying on Jamie and Kat snuggled up watching a film together.
