Tombstone -- which now consists of Recker, Irish, and Pac -- is being briefed on the Chinese political situation. On board the USS Valkyrie, Captain Garrison is informing them of the supposed assassination of the to-be president, Jin Jié. While Admiral Chang closes down further elections and declares martial law, angry rioters rise within China. Garrison continues to say that if Chang finds out about Tombstone's previous mission, he will be able to target the U.S. and declare war. Garrison briefs them their next mission: recover two VIPs and CIA Agent Kovic from the Zhi Yu Tower in Shanghai.
