In Sicario Reggie introduces Ted as a cop to Kate Macer (Emily Blunt). After having some drink and dancing, they become intimate, and then Ted brings out this band from his pocket. Looking at this band Kate runs for the gun.


How does she figure out just by looking at this band, that Ted has been sent to kill her or to extract info from her about the operation going on against Manuel Diaz?

  • There's also the same rubber band on Diaz's coffee table. Which doesn't help Kate, but it shows that it's meant to be a useful symbol for identifying drug gear Mar 21, 2016 at 0:07
