They've established that she's bright and levelheaded and yet all she did in two episodes was to make a Skype call.
She picked the lock on her cell, stole a phone, escaped to the roof of the building, and made the Skype call when 911 failed, thus giving her father and the authorities the only clue they had of her and her friend's whereabouts. And she did this against a team of ex-Russian spies. Plus she remained calm and collected throughout the ordeal, waiting for a chance to escape, and helping her friend.
I'd say that's pretty damn impressive.
