Tyler Mills is being transported to another facility when the guard in his locked transport van attacks and kills him with a shot of Fentanyl to the neck. The “guard” takes off into the dark woods and Nick follows. The assassin gets the drop on Nick but says he doesn’t kill anyone he doesn’t have to. He orders Nick to lie on his stomach and count to 100. Nick does as he’s told. The assassin flees, leaving Nick alive.
