The day may come when someone actually does remote-command a gang of thugs via mobile video conferencing. From what I can gather it wouldn’t even be hard, which is why even someone like Fynch could set up a fairly basic system like this. Though I bet if someone actually tries it for real they’ll end up bitching about “lag” and “freeze” and probably have to reboot at least two of the smartphones in the process. Plus, I’m not sure any of the current apps let you use the rear camera, but that’ll probably be part of an upgrade if it isn’t already.

Max is listed as a “John Doe” in the records because the EMTs didn’t find a wallet in his pocket (it had fallen down the interior of his blood-soaked jacket) and they figured there was no rush since he was dead anyway. It was discovered later after he revived himself a couple of times, but by then Dr. Rhodes had taken charge. And Virgil Cicerone stepped in to keep our hero incognito.

As usual, Fynch’s diverse group of nasties are way too trigger-happy. Not that Fynch cares about killing people per se, but after that display it’s going to be hard to get any of the other hostages to cooperate much.
