John sets out to uncover the truth about the assassination, forcing him to confront the last person he wants to speak to. Meanwhile, the former members of John’s platoon plan an assault mission out of revenge.
Obadiya wants to make a deal with John, while the former commandos confront the Nigerian minister again, this time with deadly consequences. John learns that the person behind the assassination might be from his own platoon.
John returns to military service with the Royal Dutch Commandos, pushing his wife further away. Isabella interrogates his former platoon members to try and uncover the truth, culminating in a shocking death under suspicious circumstances.
As platoon member Kenneth struggles with PTSD and spirals out of control, John discovers a startling connection between him and the assassination. John’s retreat back into military life drives his family to leave him.
