Engineer Oksana Nastrova gets the team to help determine the exact spot to place the mobile sarcophagus over the Chernobyl reactor before the poor quality Sovuet concrete casing breaks down. Toby remains at home with Ralphie to coordinate, having testified against the release from prison psychiatry of former team member Mark Collins, actually in vain. Attempts to assess the Ukrainian mess go bad as Oksana looses control of her airplane, with Sly aboard, and Walter of the police and bomb squad robot at the radioactive lava core. During a risky rescue, Fearless rescuer Walter gets trapped with Paige, needing a kiss of life, yet back home still lacks courage to ask her out rather then rival Tim. Written by KGF Vissers

Sums up the whole series
19 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is the most realistic episode in the entire series. The team goes to Russia to fix the Chernobyl problem because they're "the smartest and fastest minds available."

So what happens? Through sheer stupidity and arrogance, Walter sends a robot straight into a giant blob of radioactive material, threatening millions of lives.

First believable thing I've seen so far from a series that shows its genius by having its characters randomly spouting mathematical equations (look ma, I can maths) and magically inventing everything they need to complete their missions (EMP gun from microwaves? Sure, just give me 5 minutes.)
