William Vaughn's (Justin Smith) alarm rings, but he is already awake. There is a silent tension between him and his wife, Maj. Helen Wu (Renee Lim), after the events at the car park, where the couple ambushed Sami Almasi (Robert Rabiah) and his associate Mustafa (Parham Esmailpour), killing the latter, and stole their weapons. Vaughn's bullets missed Sami's vital organs, and he is currently in post-op. Wu is worried that he will retaliate, but Vaughn thinks Sami would not risk coming after the Director of the ASD. Wu disagrees.
