Plot[edit | edit source]
Alpes, France[edit | edit source]
While driving in the Alpes, Ali gets pulled over by the police. Luckily, they let him go. Ryan and Sandrine wait in a car as they follow Ali. Sandrine still thinks that this is a gamble but Ryan thinks that it's a gamble worth taking. Greer rides in the car behind them with Clozet who hates Muslims. Greer shows him that he's also in fact Muslim. Sandrine asks Ryan if he's dating anyone and he says yes. She asks if he actually likes her and he says yes. She encourages him to text her and ask her out. He does but she warns him that she might think he's creepy because American women are uptight. As Ali drives, his wound continues to bleed. He's also running low on fuel. It's getting harder for Ryan to see where Ali is on the tablet. Sandrine suggests that they stop and refuel.
They arrive at the gas station. Sandrine asks if Cathy ever texted him back and he says no. She tells him that she would've texted him back. Greer and Clozet argue over who lost Ali. Luckily, they find his car at a ski resort. They go to investigate and learn that Ali switched vehicles. While at the gas station, Ryan notices a car. He sees that it's been stolen and investigates the car further. As he investigates, he gets shot at by Ali. He dodges the bullet only because Sandrine warned him. Sandrine gets shot by a policeman unaware of the situation. Ryan manages to make it back to his car and grabs a gun. Ali runs away across the road into the forest. Ryan checks on Sandrine but she tells him to go after Ali.
Ryan follows the trail of blood left by Ali. Ali gets the jump on him and begins to strangle Ryan. Ryan hits his wounded side and Ali rolls off of him. Ryan manages to grab his gun again and points it at Ali. Ryan asks where the next attack is. Ali goes to reach for something in his back pocket and Ryan shoots him. Ali dies. Ryan returns to Sandrine but she's died as well.
While at the funeral of Father Joseph, three of Suleiman's men activate bombs. They leave the church and put chains on the doors outside. When they go off, instead of exploding, they release a gas.

Al tells Suleiman that he won't let him do this because he is the leader. Suleiman pulls out a bag of money and purchases the American hostages. Al goes to collect the money after the hostages have been loaded onto a truck. Suleiman instead gives the money to Al's men because they haven't been paid in months. Al's men turn on him.
