Goofs

When Tarrant and Dayna are about to enter the laboratory, Dayna hands Tarrant a key from the soldier's body. She then hands him a second key, and they deduce that one of the keys is a fake. Tarrant enters the first key she handed him, which works, then he proclaims that she saved their lives. If the first key worked, then there was actually no need for the second key, so she didn't do anything. The only way she would have saved their lives, is if the first key was the fake. See more »
