So... you don't push the button and a bunch of hieroglyphics come up on the counter?
It also sounded like something... was being released, maybe? Maybe hitting the code maintains the quarantine, and not hitting it allows whatever it is to breach the quarantine? I know, given all the traffic through the hatch, the quarantine might have already been breached, but it sounded (and I could be reading too much into this) like something was released.
I'm gonna try to screencap the shot of the counter tomorrowish and post it here for discussion.
Also -- I cannot believe Sawyer killed the frog. BAD SAWYER.
And who thinks dude isn't actually an Other?
