WMG: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
The Two FBI agents blacklisting Indy were double agents covering their own ass.
Why else would they be there conveniently to accuse Indiana of treason? Plus Indy subtly accused them of such a crime.
FBI: Don't wave your war record in our face Colonel Jones. We all served.
Jones: No kidding. Which side were you on?
- This was during the Red Scare. Need I say more?
Indy's friend, General Ross, is 'Thunderbolt' Ross's father
The reason for Nuking The Fridge working...
Shiva, God and Christ owed him one for protecting the artifacts they produced. Shiva was forever grateful for Indy returning Shiva Linga to the desolate village. God was grateful for him doing all he can to keep the Ark of the Covenant out of evil hands. Christ was grateful that he used the Holy Grail for purer means than what the Nazis and Walter had in mind. So during their annual All Myths Are True
meeting in the afterlife, they watched over earth and noticed what was going on in Nuke Town. One of them said "Hey isn't that the guy that was protecting our stuff?" So they protected him from the blast. Why else was the fridge the only thing that was still intact, let alone with Indy safe inside.
The fridge was not an ordinary fridge
It was built as a special panic room from the artifacts from the secret warehouse and the nuke test would have tested it, but Indiana Joes just threw out the measuring instruments and went in himself. The FBI agents were mainly motivated by the Red Scare
, but also a little bit at least from him messing with the experiment.
