    Summary

    The team's first mission post-film goes pretty well, but no one's really as happy about it as they'd like to be. Nicky and Joe take advantage of their hotel room's luxurious shower to check in with each other and think about where they've been and where they're going.

    Summary

    Nicky breathes out. “What did I miss?” he asks, staring out at the hills. “Why didn’t I see this coming?”

     

    After everything, after finding Nile and losing Booker and Andy's new mortality, Joe is pissed off. Nicky is just tired.

    Summary

    Slowly, Nicky says: “Who has Joe?” 

    Nonsensically, Booker looks to Nile. Her brows furrow as Nicky and Andy follow his gaze. Nile holds her hands up as if to deny it, but then alarm takes refusal’s place. “Oh my God.” Her hands clasp around her mouth. So. She had seen something. 

    “Nile?” Andy asks. It isn’t gentle. It’s commanding. Firm. She wants an answer. Booker wishes there’s a better answer to give her. 

    “It’s...is it?” Nile asks Booker, and he finds himself the center of attention once more. 

    “Quynh,” he says. “Quynh took Joe. Put him in a...a metal coffin. I don’t know where she went.” Nicky’s fingers go tight around Booker’s shoulder and knee. All the color has drained from his face. All his concern and worry replaced with frightening blankness. 

    Then, Nicky stands. He walks out the door. And he doesn't look back.

    Summary

    Joe’s words rung in Andy’s head, tugging at the center of her like a weight she hadn’t known she carried: "I will never understand why grief drives people to become agents of the thing that hurt them…"

    She reached up and gripped the pendant around her neck, feeling the grooves of the pattern that she’d memorized so many thousands of years ago.

    She tossed Nile the keys and muttered something about the address to the Provence safehouse. They could stop by Goussainville on the way. Nile must’ve seen whatever was in her face, because she just nodded, her eyes flicking to her wound for a split second as they all slid into their seats.

    Andy tracked the young woman’s gaze as she took stock of them, and wondered what she saw. Andy had let the mask of indifference fall off her face, owning the pain in her side and the exhaustion in every muscle. She must look like shit, but Nile wasn’t judging her at all.

    Summary

    Forgiveness takes time. Any wise man could tell you that. But maybe sometimes it’s different. Maybe sometimes Booker and Joe aren’t particularly wise. And maybe sometimes it takes a disastrous bit of kidnapping for two brothers to forgive each other and themselves.
