Response to bench scientist (Original post)

11. It can't end well

No matter what happens, it's not going to be a happy ending.

If they get arrested—by Stan—it will be both parents and Paige. They will try to get Henry off saying he knew nothing. But he will get dragged into the mess.

If they go back to Russia, and both children go, they will not be happy with the actuality of life in Russia. Food shortages, constant surveillance, poo living conditions. And Paige might want to learn Russian. But Henry will be miserable. As a little twist, Stan Beeman will find out—after they have fled—the truth about them. This will cause him problems. If he reveals the truth, the FBI will consider him the dumbest agent they ever had. If he doesn't, he can be blackmailed by the Center.

If they go to Russia, it could be without the children. Some fake "accident" will kill off the parents. Paige will know the truth. Henry won't. But Paige will be happy as she will be used by the Center to keep spying. Henry will know nothing. And will be miserable with his parents dead.
