France[edit | edit source]

Dudayev, Jabir, and Amer gather round and watch a newscast about Ali on the television. Dubayev gets a call from Suleiman. The group head to Chamonix in search of Ali.
Langley, Virginia[edit | edit source]
Jack Ryan watches the videos that Suleiman released to the public. Ryan calls him a psychopath but James Greer tells him that that's what Suleiman wants you to believe. Ryan feels guilty because he could've stopped Suleiman by having captured Ali and interrogated him. But because he shot Ali, Ryan wasn't able to get any information out of him. Greer tells Ryan that blaming himself for what's happened is irrational and narcissistic. Ryan sits at his desk reviewing news articles about the Paris attack. He comes to a realization that Ali had set up the attack by murdering the priest three days prior. Ryan tells him that that service was on a weekday and normally the church would be empty then. Ali had researched his target and knew exactly what would happen.
Greer and Ryan attend a meeting being led by Nathan Singer. He shows pictures of the three men who caused the attack in Paris: Ansor Dudayev, Jabir Zarif, and Amer Soudani. They go over the way the gas was released into the church. Marcus Trent tells Singer that this in no means threatens the United States so he's going to tell the President to let the French handle it. Greer disagrees because he believes that this isn't a French problem but a world problem. Trent asks how Singer plans on coordinating a team to find Suleiman. Ryan speaks up and suggests that they use the game to communicate with Suleiman. Suleiman doesn't know that Ali is dead yet so they can pretend to be him. Ryan gets the go-ahead for this new mission from Director of Operations Shelby Farnsworth.
Layla Navarro tells Ryan about Hanin. He asks her to have her friend find Hanin and get her to talk. Navarro asks where he is and he tells her that he's on a date. Ryan goes back inside and Cathy tells him that she wants to set parameters for them spending time together. She tells him that she doesn't mind the occasional distraction but she's not up for the big messy ones. She just wants to keep it casual and asks if he's okay with that. He says yes. Ryan and a group of people are in a conference room with the video game "End of Honor" project on the screen. Greer tells them that they have people on site in France ready to go in if Suleiman sends anyone for Ali.
Ryan sends a message to Suleiman and the two have a chat. Ryan tells him where Ali supposedly is and Suleiman sends the address to Dudayev. While chatting, Ibrahim stops Suleiman and asks him how he can be sure that it's really Ali they're talking to. Ibrahim goes to backtrack the IP address. The CIA is ready for that but Suleiman asks Ryan what color was their building in Belleville just to be sure. Ryan responds Green and it appears that Suleiman believes that they are Ali. Suleiman gives them another test but Ryan answers wrong and Suleiman tells them that he knows that they aren't Ali. Suleiman asks if Ali is dead. Ryan says yes and Suleiman tells Ryan that he's going to find him. Ryan counters not before he finds Hanin. This pisses Suleiman off and he disconnects. This confirms Hanin's story and Ryan is told by Farnsworth to find her.

Hanin reveals that her husband is the man responsible for the attack in Paris. He asks where her husband is now and she says that she can't tell him that because it will put her son in danger. He tells her he needs more information if he's going to believe her story but instead she gets up and runs away believing that she shouldn't have come in the first place.
Hanin goes to see Mr. Sadik. She tells him that the man next to her tent told her to come see him. She tells him that she wants to go to Europe.
