    I think it would have more believable if Thomas's plan was to teleport/wormhole the fuel rod's while in transit. That way he doesn't wormhole in fuel rods that are in the process of a meltdown.

    Also since he plans to conquer the earth he may like the beach's in Oceanside, Ca. and wants to live there after he rules us all and doesn't want to deal with cleaning up a fall out zone.

    Besides the young lover storyline, last week gave me some hope with a solid story. But the transporting of nuclear fuel Rods with active Uranium in them with just two FBI cars as guards was beyond ridiculous. I really could not believe what I was watching.

    I bet, even if there was no terrorist threat and Uranium had to be moved from one location to another there are all kinds of safety and security protocols. To prevent any type of accident.

    Many other here have commented on what would be realistic so I wont go there. But really, that is the best, professional paid writers could come up with?

    Maybe they said, if this was 24, what would we do to further the plot?

    I don't blame the writers for the 2 SUVs guarding the truck. If you're dealing with an enemy that can just teleport the truck, why bring attention to it by escorting it with attack choppers and jets? After all no one was even supposed to know what was in the truck and the President was trusting Sophia based on advice from his security advisor.

    Yeah. They were transporting the active rods under the guise of transporting spent fuel, so they deliberately kept the crew compliment the same. If Thomas had had the ability to teleport the Uranium, no amount of extra guards would have helped. The goal of this operation was to move it without him knowing.

    On the other hand, I'm not sure what would have prevented him from hitting any of the other power plants had he actually had the technology, or why nobody considered that.

    I would like to think that there would be nuclear power plants outside the US that have more lax security and would be easier targets, but maybe I'm giving us too much credit.
