When Agarn is tasked with escorting a prisoner to prison, the man escapes. When Agarn reports what happened, a Major tells them that regulations say that Agarn must now take the man's place in prison. O'Rourke goes out to find the man and they learn that the man killed O'Rourke, so now Agarn must be executed.
