Sophia is seated behind the desk and tells Martinez that she’s been forced to take desperate measures since he refused to trust her. She tells the general to put Martinez out of his misery, and the general hands his revolve to Thomas. Thomas warns Martinez that death will be a blessing compared to what the detainees have in mind for Earth, and pulls the trigger... and Martinez wakes up from his nightmare...Read the full recap
Martinez: General, clean up your house.. or our next conversation will be about your resignation.
General: Yes, sir.
Chief of Staff Richard Peel: If it makes you feel any better, General, you held up a lot better than I would've. Assuming you haven't soiled your pants.
General: Is that supposed to be funny?
Chief of Staff Richard Peel: No, it's supposed to be supportive and self-deprecating. Anyway... I seem to have misjudged my audience.
Sterling: Mr. President, in the past, with Sophia, you've always taken the use of force off the table.
Martinez: She has played me for a fool for the last time So if it's a choice between her escaping and the use of lethal force... may God rest her soul.
