    Yeah the episode started with Darlene picking him up outside the van fire and he wasn't in the car. I kept waiting on him to show up when they were inside the realty place but he never did. Nobody can "see" him but Elliott and us but a few can tell it's him now, like Darlene.

    Server rooms can be loud. Every machine having fans, air conditioner running, if they are heavy on data use all the hard disk drives doing things would add sound too. The guard not hearing the typing is within the boundaries of my suspension of belief, but it also is pushing those boundaries. Some of those chiclet style keyboards are also pretty quiet too, especially the better made ones like that one probably is since it's probably a couple hundred dollars.

    They could have amped up the server sounds to make it more plausible, but then they would have risked drowning out the dialog.

    Oh, wait...

    :D

    Yeah, they could've had them enter the server room, hear the lots of humming, then queue the music. Then do it again when the guard entered the room.

    I meant to quote you in the post to agree with you. I'm in a spot with crappy internet and took a few tries to post and it got lost.

    My only problem with the server room fan theory is that there really wasn't a whole lot of clues that was the case. You either heard typing with no background noise, or the soundtrack. Now, I've been in server rooms and yeah, there's always fans or some cooling system going on, but at least give us a clue about that. As I said, minor nitpick in an otherwise great episode.

    Yeah, they definitely made a minor screwup in making the data center so quiet! Just put in some fan noise to give us a plausible reason the typing couldn't be heard!

    Every data center I've been in (though I haven't been in many) has actually been pretty loud!
