In a barracks on an abandoned military base, miles from the nearest road, Thomas watches as the man he has brought wakes up. Kev, a NASA astronaut, doesn't recognize his captor, though Thomas remembers him. Kev cries for help. He pulls at his chain. But the ocean is close by, and nobody can hear him over the waves and wind. Thomas apologizes. He didn't want to have to resort to this.

The ocean is close by, and nobody can hear him over the waves and wind. Thomas didn't want to resort to this, but they really need to have a conversation, and Kev didn't answer his messages. Now, if Kev can just stop yelling, Thomas has a few questions ...
