Apologies, but I don't fathom why Why did Jim Roth and Swain die trying to defuse a bomb on an empty yacht, rather than save themselves and jump off? was closed as "opinion-based"?

Doubtless I reasoned my question with "facts and citations".

That's not the issue.

The issue is that any answers would require opinions as answers as to why these characters acted the way they did....unless it's clearly stated in the show.

I gather that this is not the case.

The basic answer is "because that's what the script/plot required"

This is a fictional drama and characters often act irrationally and against their own best interests in such shows.

Even more often, characters are killed off for various reasons and having it happen in a spectacular fashion is not uncommon.
