As usual.No for real, they aren’t being sarcastic or anything. And of course, their biggest enemy is a Russian war god called Viktor Koval who’s cute but psycho. Viktor wants to keep all the cold war leftover nukes to himself and to take over the whole world just like Pinky and the Brain.
Outside The Wire, I guess Harp isn’t the only one with a penchant for the bombing. And to fight off this evil mastermind, the pentagon developed murder robots because they are idiots. It’s clear none of them watched that one Will Smith cautionary tale of a movie.
And because apparently following orders is more important than saving lives, Harp gets demoted and sent to Ukraine to die as a punishment. Harsh. Over there, he gets assigned to Captain Leo who’s weird. He’s a weirdo. He doesn’t fit in and he doesn’t care what you think of him.
A classic Jughead Jones case, typewriter and all. Except this one is an actual literal robot. Leo is a total sentimental softie and as if 3 seasons of Westworld weren’t enough, his sadistic creators made him feel pain as well. The two new buddies join forces and embark on a mission to deliver vaccines.
How nice of them! Nah, they were just trying to get intel on the warlord and the location of a bank vault containing nuclear launch codes or something. Outside The Wire
And they do. Except Harp learns a lot more than he was expecting: the detrimental effect his game of drones has on other people’s lives. I guess his cold stone mind never made the connection between murder and collateral damage.
What a dummy! No worries though, Mr. Android is here to save the day! He finds the bank codes AND the bad guy which leads Harp to call in a strike on the entire bank leaving Leo for dead.
You can say they wanted to end it all with a bang. The poor ‘droid sacrificed himself for humanity. Sike! He wanted y’all fools to believe that. He’s actually planning to bomb the Land of the Free himself to teach them quite a convincing lesson on collateral damage. And robots need no middlemen. Outside The Wire
So, he killed Viktor while he’s at it. This betrayal made Harp super salty! And so he volunteered to destroy him himself.
This is coming from a wuss that gets PTSDin the middle of a traumatic event. Thankfully, he used this super cool monster rifle and bang banged Leo to death.
Mission accomplished. The cherry on the cake, he also makes it out of there alive thanks to his super-fast running skills and goes back home to his lady friend. Outside The Wire
