Galt, as we’ve established before, comes from a line of mad scientists. His father is one, as was his father before him. Given the thoroughly wacky array of projects and equipment Galt’s dad has available to him, it’s difficult to imagine what he could’ve finally done to push the authorities over the edge, but whatever it was, it must’ve been big. Where do you take a mad scientist when he’s gone too far, anyway?
The important question left unasked here, though, is how Galt’s father’s abduction affects Victor’s internship. No one seems to know.
