- Took a Level in Jerkass: The President, in response to constantly getting jerked around by Sophia and Thomas and losing control of the situation, is becoming increasingly short-fused. He was willing to risk a nuclear meltdown if it meant catching Thomas, and isn't even considering diplomatic options anymore. By contrast, Sterling seems to be mellowing out, and is more willing to consider working with Sophia.
- Actually, what's happening is more of a constant effort to Break the Cutie (or Bullying The Dragon, if you remember that the people involved are messing with the U.S. President), leading into a quite acceptable case of Beware the Nice Ones.
