Valor (2017) s01e02 Episode Script

Espirit de Corps

1 Previously on Valor You're the first Special Ops chick I ever met.
How do you control yourself around so many hot, sweaty men? Only hard part's the smell, sir.
They have the package.
I'm an American citizen! Don't let him do this! Move, or I will shoot through you.
He's dead.
We lied in our debriefs.
We made that decision together.
Today we welcome back to duty Captain Leland Gallo and Warrant Officer Nora Madani.
They told us we were targeting a Somali national that night.
Hey, hey! Instead, we get an American soldier.
His name is Davis Foundry.
He's listed as killed in action in 2014.
PORTER: CIA has their eye on you.
Any idea why? It's my job to know when someone is hiding something.
And you are.
HASKINS: Jimmy Kam's been captured, along with Sergeant Hendrix.
And we are assembling a team to plan and execute a rescue mission.
I am gonna get myself on the team that goes in.
We will get him back.
(RADIO STATIC) Puntland Approach, this is Cloud Eye.
I'm 55 to your west at 31,000 feet, inbound.
Over.
PUNTLAND MILITARY MAN: This is Puntland Approach.
Our airspace is closed to U.
S.
Army.
You must turn back.
AIR FORCE PILOT: Do not copy.
Say again.
PUNTLAND MILITARY MAN: You must turn around.
Now.
Do we know anything about this? - No, sir.
- Get JSOC on the line.
Cloud Eye, do not, I repeat, do not alter your flight plan.
Over.
We are not risking an international incident over this.
There are two American POWs somewhere over that border.
We need to get this surveillance mission in the air gathering intel now.
- They've got radar on me.
- If you cross our border, we will be forced to open fire.
Does Puntland even have ADA? No ADA installation on the satellite data.
It's a bluff.
Cloud Eye, maintain course.
Over.
AIR FORCE PILOT: Roger that, over.
Colonel, let me remind you that the CIA is in command of this operation.
Ma'am, you never stop reminding me.
JSOC confirmed Puntland has just restricted their air space.
He crosses that border in 60 seconds, Colonel.
We need to call him off.
PUNTLAND MILITARY MAN: We will fire on you.
Do you copy? This is your last warning.
You must turn back now.
AIR FORCE PILOT: This is Cloud Eye, awaiting instructions.
Cloud Eye.
Abort mission.
Return to base.
Copy that.
So what the hell do we do now? GALLO: Morning, Madani.
Hooah, sir.
Colonel just called a briefing.
Perseus team only.
Think there's news? Yeah, maybe.
I saw my friend from the archives last night.
You saw her? Is that what the kids are calling it these days? (CHUCKLES) She can get us the manifest from the last mission Davis Goundry went on.
The one where he was listed as killed in action.
Yeah.
Three years before we saw him in Somalia with a bag over his head.
The manifest will show us who else was on his team.
Maybe one of them can tell us what really happened.
Yeah, and why the CIA wanted him dead.
Hey, uh, (CLEARS THROAT) before we go in.
Maybe we should talk about what happened at that house the other night between us.
(QUIETLY): Not the place.
(SIGHS) - Hey.
- Hey.
- How you doing? - Fine.
You look worried.
What's up? Whatever it is, I'm sure Clark Kent here is on it.
- Clark Kent? - Clark Kent? (SCOFF) You do know that I am black, right? Personality, dude.
You know, mild-mannered.
It was a compliment.
Ah, you're more of a Bruce Wayne type.
Black Bruce Wayne.
Oh.
And, uh, what's your superhero, Captain? I always kind of liked Green Lantern.
No.
No, no, no.
You are definitely more of a Jonah Hex.
Yeah.
Psycho cowboy thing.
Pretty sure that's not a compliment.
THEA: Take a seat.
We have some new arrivals to welcome today.
Our Delta Force partners in the operation, they are TDY for the duration.
You got to be kidding me.
Adam Coogan's on this thing? THEA: Gentlemen, let me remind you that Operation Perseus is classified.
Sergeants Kam and Hendrix are officially MIA.
Their POW status, however, is not, and will not be made public.
We believe they are being held in an autonomous region of Somalia called Puntland.
This morning, the Puntland government closed its airspace to us.
THEA: They're pissed off that a U.
S.
Black Hawk crashed in their borders on an op they'd never even heard about.
This is how they're retaliating.
Means our rescue mission just hit a wall, along with our efforts to find CIA Officer Richard and the prisoner he had in custody.
Ma'am.
This prisoner, you mind telling us who it is exactly? A high-value Somali insurgent.
The name is classified.
DC is working on a range of diplomatic solutions to get the airspace reopened, but it will take some time.
HASKINS: Translation: a bunch of politicians, most of whom have never served, - are now calling the shots.
- We have three members of the House Intel Committee visiting us this week.
They have questions about whether the Shadow Raiders are the right unit for this job, since it did begin with one of your helos going down.
HASKINS: They'll be guests of honor at the Military Ball.
Beforehand, we'll give them a demo exercise.
Target engagements with live fire.
You need to impress them.
I cannot stress that enough.
Is there a problem, Captain? Yeah.
I don't like wasting time with dog and pony shows.
HASKINS: You want to save our guys? This is how you start.
Which brings me to helo assignments.
Sergeant Darzi will step in as your crew chief.
And the Delta Force team leader for your bird will be Sergeant Coogan.
So, what's the story? Coogan and I served together in the 384th.
I got a promotion he wanted.
A girl, too.
Of course there was a girl.
What happened to her? Relationships are complicated.
Yeah.
True that.
It did seem a little tense with y'all this morning.
He knows I'm hiding something.
Well, sometimes you got to sacrifice for the bigger picture.
Right now, that means you keep lying.
Me, too.
Until when? Till we prove we did the right thing over there.
HASKINS: Captain Gallo.
The West Coast Battalion is pushing to be on this rescue mission instead of us.
We can't let that happen.
We need to be squared away for this demo.
No hotdogging.
Ah.
Let us give them a show.
Hey, I don't want you flying below 50 feet.
Too dangerous with a member of Congress on your bird.
If you do, it's a letter of reprimand.
And I want you cleaned up before this ball, too.
I understand Special Ops has relaxed grooming standards, but this is ridiculous.
You've been back in garrison over a week now.
You're dismissed.
Yes, sir.
I'm gonna go see Jess.
- Catch you later.
- Yep.
Nora.
You know Mrs.
Leigh and Mrs.
Darzi.
It's nice to see you guys.
Well, we'll catch y'all at the ball on Friday.
Hooah.
- Take care.
- Yes.
(SIGHS) Shouldn't they cancel the damn ball? With everything that's going on.
It's good for morale.
And the unit needs it now more than ever.
You want some? No, I'm good.
How are you holding up? I'm fine.
(CAN OPENS) I'm a mess.
And The Real Housewives of Fort Dabney want me to go to some support group.
Maybe it would help.
Nora you have no idea what these women are like.
Everything that you say is gossiped across the base in hours.
And judged.
I don't want them to see me looking weak.
Jess you're anything but weak.
I'm not even allowed to tell them that Jimmy's been I just have to say that he's missing.
What is the point of talking when there is so much that I can't say? (SOFTLY): Yeah.
Guess I'm just used to it.
I don't understand how you do it.
Find other ways to deal.
Babe I want to help.
What can I do? You can keep the promise that you made me.
You will be on the team that goes in, and you will do everything that it takes to bring Jimmy back.
(ROCK MUSIC PLAYING, INDISTINCT CHATTER) GALLO: This is 800 pounds of overkill.
Yeah, well, we train as we fight, Captain.
That's the gear my guys need.
No, it's way more than standard.
Your job's flying; mine's what happens on the ground.
- This does not affect you.
- Wrong.
Too much weight means the helo doesn't maneuver as well.
Gonna make it real hard to hit those targets.
You know, the word is that you and the lady are the best pilots in the unit.
- You saying I heard that wrong? - No, that's right.
But the name's Madani.
- Isn't Lady a dog in a movie? - (CHUCKLES) Look, whatever the issue is, we're a team now, so we got to make it work.
I'm not sure we do.
You know, Sergeant Hendrix happens to be one of my closest friends the way I see it, it's your fault he's over there right now.
I'm sorry.
Say that again? You're dating an intel officer, right? But if you think his pull with the CIA is gonna keep you on Perseus, you're wrong.
Now, Delta Force is on this no matter what, but that demo don't go good you guys aren't.
Missing target on porpuse will be pretty obvious.
Well, if you don't line me up for the shots, different story.
Well, he's an epic dick.
DARZI: I hope you guys can figure this out.
I'm not really into conflict.
Not into conflict? Guy's a soldier.
Okay, we definitely have a problem.
All this weight plus two extra bodies - for the ride-along - Yeah.
Stinks like a dead pig in sunshine.
Yeah, it's a Texas thing.
Look, at least there's some good news today.
I got that mission manifest.
Checked out the other guys who were on it.
A few have retired.
One lives over in Dalton.
- Let's go talk to him.
- Yeah, tomorrow morning.
Maybe he can give us some answers.
Hey, Gallo.
Let's just make sure we're on that rescue mission.
I promised Jess.
JIMMY: How long has it been since we got our hands free? I don't know.
A day.
Maybe more.
It's hard to keep track of time down here.
That's a long time to leave us alone.
You think they know what we're planning? How would they know? They heard us talking through the walls? I don't know.
I don't Hey, hey, hey.
I need you squared, man.
As soon as they come through that door, we got to be ready to move.
I'm good.
Could be any minute now.
(DOG BARKING IN DISTANCE) Any minute.
(PANTING) He's dead.
I was trying to stop him from shooting you.
- I didn't think.
I just did it.
- No, it's my fault.
He was our mission commander.
I disobeyed an order to move.
Because he told us we were getting a Somali insurgent.
That was a lie.
(PANTING) He was using us to render an American citizen.
And it's illegal for the Army to take action against Americans.
I know.
Look, we can't stay here.
The tangos will be coming after us.
We got to move, find a hide site, contact Jimmy and the others.
Okay, let's bring his body.
(GROANS) - (PANTING) - I'm gonna have to help you walk.
I can't carry you both.
We don't have time to bury him.
You know what they do to Americans.
How about in there? We are not just dumping him in a lake.
(DISTANT GUNFIRE) That's close.
We don't have a choice.
(GRUNTS) (PANTING) Hey.
Oh.
MADANI: It's okay.
It doesn't hurt anymore.
(ALARM TONE PLAYING) (SIGHS) Sorry.
- What? No, no, no, no.
- I got to go.
You said you weren't working until this afternoon.
No.
I have a bunch of errands to run.
You know, it didn't used to be like this.
What is that supposed to mean? You're probably the strongest person that I know.
Nothing shakes you.
But that last mission, those six days that you were lost out there, it seems like something really did.
(SIGHS) I just want you to talk to me about it.
And I did.
No, there is something that you're not saying.
I am not doing this again.
All right.
(GRUNTS) (SIGHS) (DOOR CLOSES) (DRAWER OPENS, CLOSES) (LAWNMOWER WHIRRING) GALLO: We appreciate your time, sir.
JORDAN: Of course.
Davis Goundry was a good friend.
You say this is about a benefits claim? Yeah, we're doing an internal investigation, making sure his family's paid what they're due.
Three years later.
Can you tell us how it happened that night? We were doing a HALO jump.
25,000 feet.
Heavy cloud cover.
Goundry was the first to go.
Then, mid-fall, he radios he's got a parachute malfunction.
After that, we lost contact.
There was a CIA team on the ground that went looking for him.
One of them got a visual on his body, smashed up in a tree line.
They were in a TIC, taking fire, so they couldn't recover him.
Do you remember the CIA officer's name - who saw his body? - No.
Would you recognize his face? JORDAN: Yeah.
That was him.
So he faked his death with Richard's help? As a way to create a deep-black cover.
I mean, I've heard rumors about that kind of thing.
Yeah, but, then, why would Richard want him dead a month ago? I don't know.
(RINGTONE PLAYING) (PHONE CLICKS) I hope what happened with us - isn't part of that.
- It's not.
I owe you an apology, though.
I'm your C.
O.
I shouldn't have crossed that line.
We both did.
Look, let's just forget about it.
We have bigger secrets to worry about.
Excuse me, ma'am.
Do you have a moment? For you, Lieutenant, always.
Come on in.
Actually, I'm glad you're here.
What does one wear to a military ball? Uh it's semiformal for civilians, ma'am.
Good.
Good.
What can I do for you? I did some research.
The Puntland government runs a large refugee camp outside of Bosaso.
It's been hit by a meningitis outbreak.
They need antibiotics, but they can't get them because it's too dangerous.
Local bandits raid the shipments and sell it on the black market.
It's a lawless part of the world.
What is your point? The Shadow Raiders could fly in the antibiotic load, a gesture of goodwill which we'd offer in exchange for the government reopening their airspace.
And my guess is they would take that deal.
So you're not just a pretty face.
- It's a good idea.
- Colonel thought so as well.
Uh, minus the “pretty face.
” (LAUGHS) I'll run it by DC.
Thank you, ma'am.
While I have you here The other day when I asked about Ms.
Madani and her exit logs from base, I realize that put you in a tough position.
You know, I would have gone directly to her, but she seems like someone who is very difficult to know.
That is true of a lot of people in our line of work.
Yeah.
And who doesn't love a challenge? (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) Okay, let's get this practice run started.
Engines.
MADANI: Set.
You clipped in back there? Yep.
Is all of the sergeant's equipment secure? Yes, sir.
MADANI: Renegade One-Two.
Adele's ready to fly.
You named your helo Adele? - It was between that and Katy Perry.
- Which reminds me, let's get some tunes up in here.
(INTRO TO “SET FORTH” BY TIJUANA PANTHERS PLAYS) GALLO: Here we are.
New found pleasure Set forth Sloane I have the controls.
You have the controls.
Temporary measure Set forth atone She's on the phone Cambridge wants her now Calls the country home She loathes the beach Ooh No progress Ooh Just regress Ooh Hey, nice dress Ooh When's recess? Set forth, couture's what she's made for Set forth Sloane You got to line me up.
Okay, on this next one, I need a 70-degree bank.
It's not safe.
We're at the limit for power.
Because of the load you insisted on bringing.
You know what, you're the taxi drivers, I'm the customer.
Your job's to give me what I want.
You don't do that, we're gonna have a problem here.
Calls the country home I have the controls.
She loathes the beach You have the controls.
Ooh No progress Ooh Just regress Pull me up! Pull me up.
(CHUCKLING) Pull me up! What the hell is wrong with you? Like she said: it's not safe.
I hope you got that out of your system, because it didn't help things.
I was proving a point it's too much weight.
You didn't change his mind, you just pissed him off more.
All that matters now is staying on the rescue mission.
Sacrifice for the bigger picture.
Your words.
Yep, okay.
You're right.
I bet that was hard for you to say.
But with this kind of weight, only way we hit all those rgets tomorrow is going below 50 feet.
Oh, so now you want to piss off the colonel, too? A letter of reprimand will get you flagged.
That means no promotions for years.
Tomorrow we'll follow the rules.
And if you and Coogan manage not to kill each other in the process, then maybe we have a shot.
Hey.
Thought I'd find you here.
(SIGHS) I'll catch you in a bit.
Jonah Hex out.
You two sure seem to have a lot to talk about these days, huh? Yeah.
Look I feel like we didn't get a chance to resolve things - this morning.
- Okay.
- We really don't have to rehash it.
- No.
We do.
There's something that you are not telling me, Nora, and I want to know what.
I am not doing this right now.
Then you're gonna have to do it sometime.
Oh, am I? Or what? Please just stop riding my ass about this.
Nora.
(PANTS) You need to choose.
Either you start trusting me or we're done.
You let me know when you decide.
GALLO: I need you to start trusting me.
You're gonna be all right.
That was my first kill.
Yeah, you did it to save me.
If the CIA finds out we killed an officer and let a prisoner go free, we're both going to Leavenworth.
“If they find out”? What does that mean? There's another way.
We say Richard and the prisoner bailed before we ditched.
We don't know what happened to 'em.
Then we look for proof this was an illegal mission.
We find that, we come clean, and we keep our asses out of prison.
Lying goes against everything we've been trained to do.
So did pulling that trigger.
We couldn't tell anyone, not even Ian.
(QUIETLY): This is insane.
We'd have to do this together.
It's your choice.
All right, I'm here.
And I wore my sneakers.
Now, will you please tell me why? You wanted to know how Shadow Raiders deal with stuff, I'm gonna show you one way.
- Put this on.
- (VELCRO TEARS) Used to be part of our hazing.
Every single morning, when I first joined the unit.
- This is not light.
- (CHUCKLES) 30 pounds, baby.
“The torture run.
” I remember Jimmy talking about that.
By the end of it, your lungs burn so much you want to die, but upside is, guaranteed to clear your head.
No talking required.
Yeah.
There was a whole world in that “yeah.
” Ian wants me to talk.
I can't.
All right, you ready for this? Come on, we only have to do it 25 times.
Come on.
Mama, Mama, can't you see Mama, Mama, can't you see What the Army's done to me? What the Army's done to me? Put me in a barber's chair Put me in a barber's chair (FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING) (KEYS JINGLE) They're coming in.
They're coming in.
This is it.
Get your hands behind your back.
Don't move until I do.
JIMMY (SPEAKING ARABIC): He's sick.
(GUNSHOT) Um Somebody must have heard that.
We got to move fast.
Okay, get up, get up! You're our ticket out of here.
JIMMY (SPEAKING ARABIC): Ah, here's the boss himself.
No deal.
You are worth more to me alive, but if you do not lay down the gun, we will kill you.
We go down fighting.
- Screw it.
- No! I have a family to get back to.
- I can't give up now.
- Jimmy, no.
No, no.
(SPEAKS ARABIC) JIMMY: No! (GRUNTS) Raiders Atten-hut! Present arms! Shadow Raiders formed, sir.
Order, arms! It is my privilege to present the Honorable Gregory Carter, Congressman of the State of New York; the Honorable Jeremy Slavitt, of Oklahoma; and the Honorable Simone Porter, of Georgia.
(JET PASSES OVERHEAD) Hello, son.
(QUIETLY): Thought you knew.
Wrong there.
Nora.
Good to see you.
Been too long.
Ma'am.
SIMONE: I'd like to say how honored we are to be here.
Operation Perseus is very important to us.
We need to bring our boys home.
ALL: Hooah! I look forward to toasting your service at the ball tonight.
But, in the meantime, let's see what you can do.
(HELICOPTER ENGINE STARTING) I take it Ian's mom isn't a fan.
She has big plans for him.
Wants him to run for office someday, doesn't think I fit into that.
- That why you're so tense? - I'm not tense.
I call bull.
Ian gave me an ultimatum today.
I tell him what I'm hiding or You'd be putting us in a lot of danger, Madani.
Him, too.
I asked to ride with you.
Hope you don't mind.
Glad to have you, ma'am.
SIMONE: You should know, if it weren't for Ian, we would have already put another battalion on the rescue operation.
HASKINS: Well, let's show her what Shadow Raiders can do.
COOGAN: Ma'am, would you like me to explain - what's about to happen here? - SIMONE: Please.
All right, Sergeant Darzi and I, we're gonna be shooting at a series of oil drums.
There is fuel in them today, so they should make some nice flames.
And it's these pilots' job to get us lined up for the shots.
If they do, you should get a nice show.
If not, well, my apologies in advance.
Let me take this one.
- You have the controls.
- I have the controls.
Here we are.
SIMONE: Nicely done, pilot.
And you weren't kidding about those flames.
COMPUTER VOICE: Low rotor.
Low rotor.
Low Low rotor RPM.
We don't have the torque.
Can't do it.
- I have the controls.
- You have the controls.
Don't go below 50.
GALLO: We can't be taken off the mission.
Take your shot, Sergeant.
Damn! Well done.
All of you.
It's gonna be an honor to have you on Operation Perseus.
The colonel looks like he's about to kill someone.
Yeah, that someone would be me.
I got nothin' I got nothin' to lose Time is running out And I'm rolling through And I'm comin', I'm comin' for you With a hot head and a bad attitude I wanna take a walk in the wild I wanna feel our hearts collide I wanna feel alive I wanna take a walk in the wild I wanna feel our hearts collide I wanna feel alive Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh, ooh Come bloody, I got room for two There's only one thing that's left to do Hold steady, I've had my eye on you I'm coming back at you like déjà vu I wanna take a walk in the wild I wanna feel our hearts collide Where's Lieutenant Porter? Would have thought you guys came together.
He's escorting his mother.
I'm sure they'll be here soon.
I wanna take a walk in the wild You know, you're very impressive to me, Ms.
Madani.
I thought my agency felt male.
But it's nothing like your unit.
I'm sure we've dealt with a lot of the same.
We have.
You know, I had to fight really hard to run this operation.
It's personal to me.
Richard was a mentor of mine.
I want to know what happened to him.
We all do, ma'am.
(PHONE RINGS) I'm sorry, I have to take this.
Nora.
Hey, Jess.
Oh, look at you.
- You look beautiful.
- Thank you.
So do you.
Look at this guy.
- Mm-hmm.
- An officer and a gentleman.
Couldn't quite go clean, huh? Heck, I worked hard to be in Spec Ops.
Got to enjoy these perks where I can, right? Jess told me you made her do the torture run.
And she did great.
Yeah, and now I can hardly walk.
(CHUCKLES) But it did make me realize how different it is for you guys.
I mean, you train together, you deploy together.
But us here at home, waiting? We do that alone.
Well, not quite alone.
- Good luck.
- Thanks.
Go get them.
It's good to see her smiling like that again.
Yeah.
Hey, how'd the talk go with the colonel? Kept his promise.
Letter of reprimand.
Well, you went below 50 feet.
You knew what you were doing.
- Yep.
- Mm-hmm.
I took your advice.
Sacrifice, blah, blah, blah.
It worked.
We're on the rescue mission.
Coogan looks thrilled about it.
GALLO: You know that girl we fought over? I really fell for her.
Um She was an Army nurse.
Died in Kandahar.
(CLEARS THROAT) Here I am Sandwiched between heaven SIMONE: Your girlfriend is quite a pilot.
Even I could tell that today.
No crap.
She wouldn't be here otherwise.
I was trying to say something nice.
Well, it shouldn't be so hard, Mom.
She has a very handsome partner.
Nice thing number two.
I used to ask life to kill me slowly But now I beg you.
I have been looking for you.
You remember Anna.
Works at the archives.
How could I forget? Uh, if you'll excuse me, I think I just - saw my date walk in.
- Oh.
I need to talk to you both.
Two suits came by my office today, wanting to know what records you've been asking for.
I mean, I made something up, but I don't think they bought it.
I think they were CIA.
You told me you were researching for a benefits claim.
- That's right.
- (SCOFFS) Yeah? Well, definitely don't believe that anymore.
(STAMMERS, SIGHS) How does the agency even know we went to her? They're not only checking our exit logs.
They're watching us.
(PANTING) (WHISPERS): Damn it.
Too much water got in.
(PANTING) You get the wound clear? I think yeah.
Bullet went all the way through.
That's good.
Less chance of infection.
(MADANI GRUNTING) Let me do it.
(GRUNTING): I got it.
Talk to me.
Distract me.
How about some 20 Questions? (LAUGHS) You freaking love that game.
I want you to guess what the prisoner dropped when he ran.
He dropped something? - What? - Nope.
- Not how you play.
- Oh, Gallo, just tell me! That's a thousand U.
S.
dollars.
And inside a domino.
I got no idea what that's about.
All right.
Hold still.
(SCREAMING) You're good.
You're good.
(SIGHS) (PANTING) I used to think that doing my duty was the same as doing what was right.
Made things easy.
I guess now it's up to us to decide.
I've made my decision.
(SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY) I'm giving Ian an answer.
Look.
I've been thinking about what you said, and you're right.
You deserve to know the truth.
All of it.
I'm ready.
I've been visiting Gallo outside of work.
We've been struggling with what we went through, and we nearly died out there.
So we've been talking through it with each other.
I knew it wasn't kosher to be fraternizing that way, so I didn't tell you.
You're talking.
That's it? Yes.
I am the one that you should be talking to.
I know.
And from now on, I will.
Okay.
Come on.
Dance floor ain't getting any younger.
(LAUGHS) What does that even mean? Got to learn what that door is for Got to learn what that door is for Got to learn what that door is for Got to learn what that door is for Well, you know I'd walk a mile just to die Die, die, die, die Bad luck coming up, good luck is gone - What do you drink? - Bourbon.
- Double shot.
- There you are.
Bad luck coming up, good luck is gone And the mile that I speak of is the one I'm on Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, Tommy Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, Tommy Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, Tommy Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, Tommy They were all my friends.
(TAPPING GLASS) Shadow Raiders.
The Honorable Simone Porter is going to lead us in tonight's Missing Man Ceremony.
SIMONE: This table, set here in a place of honor, symbolizes our missing and fallen comrades.
The seat is empty because they're gone.
The glass is overturned because they cannot drink with us.
And the single candle represents the hope they'll make their way home to our arms.
Until they do, we take solace in the community here tonight, and we raise a glass together for their speedy return.
(PHONE BEEPING) (PHONES BEEPING, CHIMING) (CROWD MURMURING) (PHONES CONTINUE CHIMING) Jess.
I know.
You can't tell me anything.
I guess I'm heading home now.
- (SNIFFLES) Okay.
- See you soon? Yeah.
(SNIFFLES) You know what? I'll actually see you guys at group next week.
You decided to come? Yeah, it's worth a shot, right? (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) Hooah.
THEA: Thank you for coming.
I called this emergency briefing for two reasons.
The first is that we have a mission to start planning.
The Puntland government has agreed to reopen their airspace once we do a little something for them.
We will be flying a load of antibiotics into a refugee camp.
Now, it's an unstable area, and it is likely that you will encounter armed resistance.
A successful drop will not only save lives, but it will be the next step in bringing back Sergeants Kam and Hendrix.
THEA: Now, for the second thing.
We received a video tonight, sent through an anonymous file-sharing service.
I wanted you to see it immediately.
My name is Khalid Samatar.
I am the man who has your soldiers.
I will release them in exchange for 50 ISIS prisoners held by U.
S.
forces.
Their names will be shown at the end of this video, with instructions on how to make the trade.
You have ten days to meet my demands.
Goundry had a domino, too.
MADANI: That's not coincidence.
KHALID: If you do not, they will die.
And I will send the video for the world to see.
