** Alex is assassinated when he goes to set the explosives for a controlled demolition. His assassin adds a much larger explosive device that will be set off by the controlled bombs. Alex walks away calmly, knowing the radius of the demolition device he set, only to be caught in the much larger radius of the assassin's bomb.

* '''Parodied''': Alex is strutting away in his BadassLongcoat, triumphant guitar solo playing in the background... and then there's a larger secondary explosion and he panics in a very unmanly fashion.

* '''Reconstructed''': All of that is true, but Alex isn't concerned about getting killed by his own bomb or getting caught; he's a terrorist, remember?
