Although the (named) part is moderately up in the air Agent 83 chooses the name Megan Walsh for herself and speaks to Liz Larson about Liz's personal problems and fears/being afraid of Megan.

The first Bechdel passing scene, if Agent 83 can be considered a true name, occurs when Agent 83 speaks to Victoria Knox saying "Gotcha" and Victoria responds something like "You got nothing kid".

Passes the test, but the spirit of the movie is very mean. There are multiple occasions where women call each other bitches, there is a lot of underage drinking and some seriously disturbing scenes involving firearms and other killing objects. Not for kids, that's for sure.

I probably sound like an old man (I'm 20) but this movie seriously bothered me.
