If I remember correctly, what he meant was this: There was a redundant charge that never went off. Only one charge would be needed, higher up on the lines where they converged close together. This charge would blow all of them. What this was supposed to look like was a mistake. That "Jason Bourne" had left a second explosive that malfunctioned, which left ...

In her book Robert Ludlum: A Critical Companion, Gina MacDonald draws from The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association to discuss author Ludlum’s development of the causes and symptoms of Webb/Bourne’s ailments (p 134-135). Bourne is the deadly alter ego that Webb assumed to survive the jungle warfare in Vietnam and ...

As I understand it, there isn't much overlap at all. That scene is effectively a "flash forward", a teaser to the events of the sequel, shown well out of chronological order. If you remove that final scene, then the movies take place in sequence, one almost immediately after the other. At the end of Bourne Supremacy, Jason escapes from the assassin the CIA ...

Question 1. Why does he check in? .. He didn't have to go to the desk and give his passport, he could have gone to the hotel, causally walk in, and go upstairs without arousing too much suspicion. Jason Bourne wanted to be tracked. When he was first traveling from Tangiers to Naples, Bourne had no problem giving security his passport. And then, when his ...

What was Zorn referring to by, "Why put the charge all the way down here?" Did he mean "why put the charge in the breaker room rather than somewhere else in the building?" If so, where would a better spot have been? Observation #1 The office building's electrical closet was located in the basement, and the entrance to it was in a back/...

Well acording to Born.Fandom.Com/Wiki Kirill originally frames Jason Bourne by planting his fingerprints and proceeds to kill the agent and the source, stealing the files and money and giving them to Russian oil magnate Yuri Gretkov. Hope this is what you're searching for.

The mission to kill Neski was not an officially sanctioned mission. Conklin was working with Abbott to "borrow" CIA money and funnel it to the Russian oligarch Gretkov who was using it to invest in the newly privatised Russian oil industry. Neski was opposed to the privatisation and Gretkov wanted him removed. Conklin directed Bourne to handle this ...

She suspected that he did because Conklin was making a mess as he attempted to capture Bourne. When first questioned, he denies it, but because Landy read the files, she knew Abbott was in charge and that Conklin reported to him. He decides to tell her what happened, about Bourne failing a mission, and how Conklin couldn't bring him in. Is it ...

Why does Jarda attack Jason They could have escaped together and Jason could have had many of his questions answered if he kept Jarda alive. Jarda was trying to capture/kill Bourne It's pretty clear that Jarda had called for assistance (apparently by using his home security keypad) and was playing for time (he even looks at his watch) then....when the phone ...

While Bogden's answer is fine, I just want to clarify that Abbot was the clear source of the fingerprint, given his access to Bourne's files with the logical conclusion that the conspiracy to frame him was only concocted following the murder of Conklin and Bourne going to ground. Indeed, Born.Fandom.Com/Wiki, specifically states that "Unbeknownst to Landy ...

If the 'frame' had gone to plan, Bourne would have been dead and Abbott would not have been worried about Landy tracing the fingerprints back to Bourne and Treadstone. 'Dead in a ditch. Drunk in a Bar in Mogadishu' - at the point that Landy first confronts Abbott he is still under the impression that Kirril had assassinated Bourne and was confident that ...

It took some digging. When they meet each other at the house in Munich Jarda says "word in the ether was that you lost your memory." And Bourne replies "you still should have moved." This implies Bourne has at least some fragmented memories of prior knowledge of Jarda, or maybe that the house is covertly owned by the CIA. We know they've interacted before -- ...

There is no explanation. I really cannot see the CIA allowing their Treadstone assets to know each other's addresses. I can see thing giving Bourne's Paris address to Castel and the others when they wanted him dead. But alive? I don't see it. In fact, the movie never hinted that the Treadstone assets worked together. The Professor didn't seem famliar ...
