After breaking out of a moon-based maximum security prison, Boris the Animal decides to go back in time and eliminate the person who arrested him - Agent K. When he does so, Agent J realizes that the time line has been changed and he too travels back to July 15, 1969, the day before Agent K is killed. After overcoming some disbelief, J manages to convince young K and others of just who he is and why he's there. With the help of a being who can see all time lines, they track Boris down. J also learns a secret, something old K had never told him. Written by

As soon as Boris blasts the door down, there are guards on the grounds and guards behind some of the cells in the background. After Boris blasts the the steel wall, the guards on the grounds are sucked into the vacuum of space, but the guards hiding in the cells in the background have vanished completely. They certainly weren't sucked into the vacuum of space because they were protected by both the cell bars and the ceiling above them. See more
