*** [[spoiler:If he doesn't know where the money is, Atlee can't get into the red box to find out without the Prime Minister twigging to the existence of the secret murder club he expressly forbid Atlee from starting, so the only other thing he can do is delete the data to protect the PM from getting snatched by the Syndicate. In addition, Ilsa told him that what she had was a ''ledger'', of all Lane's operative, terrorist and politician contacts. Atlee's not going to risk bringing ''that'' home to MI6 ''at all'', let alone to read, because it might implicate him in the Syndicate's creation. The only real dumb thing Atlee did was to code the red box to the Prime Minister's voice, retinal scan and handprint, despite knowing that he had not approved the Syndicate's existence; one can only imagine that Atlee was dreaming of the day he could show the Prime Minister just how successful the Syndicate had become, and have the satisfaction of having changed the Prime Minister's mind.]]

** [[spoiler: If Attlee knows where all the money is, he could easily have taken steps to make sure Lane never gets his hands on it simply by arranging transfers to other accounts that are not on the data file or just emptying the coffers one way or another (and if he didn't, he threw that chance away by deleting the file), especially since TheSyndicate had been active for ''years'' before the story began.]]

** If Lane is willing and able to [[spoiler: outwit and destroy an entire covert intelligence unit, assassinate world leaders and carry out numerous terrorist attacks and high-level crimes ''without anyone even knowing for sure that his organization exists'', he should easily be able to find alternate means of financing his scheme by fair means or foul, apart from the data file (one also questions the wisdom of giving an illegal covert operation the budget of a small country to begin with, Mr Attlee; such operations are almost never ''that'' expensive, even granting the scope of his ambition). Lane should have taken the 50 million pounds that Hunt transferred him and promptly done a Houdini; he could have invested that and used it to fund future Syndicate operations.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[ActionGirl Ilsa]] [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Faust]] is one of the best examples in modern filmmaking, being widely considered the [[BreakoutCharacter coolest]] character in the film by both critics AND fans. She ended up being such a hit that she was one of the first characters confirmed to return for [[Film/MissionImpossibleFallout the next movie]].

* CompleteMonster: [[AnarchyIsChaos Solomon Lane]] is a former MI6 operative who, after realizing his own sociopathic nature, became enraged and went rogue with the Syndicate to cover up his own deficiencies. Using the Syndicate to carry out devastating terrorist attacks while committing murders himself, Lane was defeated and arrested by Ethan Hunt and his team. [[Film/MissionImpossibleFallout Two years later]], [[spoiler:Lane uses his ally John Lark--aka August Walker--to get free, now [[RevengeBeforeReason hell-bent on revenge]] against Ethan. To that end, he uses stolen plutonium to rig two nuclear bombs to go off in Kashmir, at a medical site where Ethan's ex-wife Julia is working just out of spite. The nukes will irradiate the water supplies of China, India and Pakistan, affecting a third of the earth's population while Lane is fine dying in the blast so long as he knows Ethan is framed for being Lark and will rot in a jail cell for the rest of his life haunted by the guilt of Julia's death. [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist Abandoning all pretense of good intentions]], Lane shows that he is a [[EvilCounterpart dark mirror]] to Hunt himself, stopping at nothing to achieve his ends, no matter how many have to die.]]

** If this is referring to the Bone Doctor scene at the beginning, it's possible Hunt was wondering why she would bust him out of this situation in such a blatant way, putting her cover in jeopardy, when they don't even know each other. Does ''she'' know ''him'' from somewhere? How is she even so deep in this organisation, when even the CIA think the Syndicate is basically the Tooth Fairy and that Hunt has finally lost his marbles? Has this chick just screwed herself over? And what if she's not a double agent and this is all part of the game the Syndicate is playing with him??
