We continue our story from here
Steve and Danny fly the 10 000 km to Cambodia, to visit the location of the site that Jerry found the co-ordinates for. And Sam was right, it is a grave. But when they get there, they find the grave already opened up and the body removed from the coffin.
Danny: Your friend in the CIA moves fast.
Steve: Yeah. But he’s a little sloppy.
[Steve finds a piece of hair and skin stuck inside the coffin]
I just want mention here that I wanted to criticize the props department for not providing them with spades/shovels to carry to the site, to dig up the body with. Then while having another look, I saw that both Steve and Danny were carrying folded spades/shovels on the outside of their backpacks. Great attention to detail there – sorry for doubting your attention to detail 😀 .
Danny: You’re an amazing travel companion. Did anybody ever tell you that? I mean the time is just flying by here. Maybe I can go and see if the co-pilot would like to play backgammon or something.
Steve: I’m sorry, okay. I appreciate you coming, Danny. I do. I’m just……
Danny: You’re disappointed. I understand. It’s a really long way to fly to find an empty coffin. Which by the way, there is zero chance the CIA did not know, that whoever was occupying that coffin, meant something to you.
Steve: Yeah. Or Doris. Because that’s what this is all about. I’m telling you. I guarantee, my mother is linked to that missing body somehow.
Danny: Either that, or she’s responsable for the body being in the ground in the first place. But you don’t wanna go down that road.
Back in Hawaii, Steve hands Max the sample of hair from the grave and asks him to run DNA tests on it.
And I am wondering, that if this person was killed before Steve was born in 1977, can DNA really give an answer to who it is? Maybe they can at least determine who this person was related to, if that relation have been DNA profiled since the use of it started in the late 80’s 🙂
Steve waits outside Sam’s office for him.
Steve: How was your trip?
Steve: Your little mission in Cambodia.
Sam: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Steve: You don’t know me, all right. And you need to believe me when I tell you, “I’m not gonna quit” . I’m not gonna stop. I’m gonna do everything I have to do until I find out who was in that grave.
Sam: I guarantee that would be making the biggest mistake of your life.
Steve: You know what. Stop. No more threats. No more threats.
[Steve hands Sam his gun]
Steve: Take it. You wanna stop me? That’s the only way you gonna stop me. That it.
Sam: My office 21h00
The hair sample Max sent over to the lab, got lost on its way there and Max phones Steve to give him the bad news.
Steve: You know what Max. Don’t even worry about it, okay. I mean, it’s not your fault, all right? Thank you for the call. I really appreciate it.
Danny: Why are you not upset by this news?
Steve: I would be upset, if I gave Max the whole sample.
Danny: Oh, you stuffed a little on the side. Like for a rainy day or something.
Steve: If you want to beat these guys, you’ve got to play by their rules
Danny: I like it. I like it. That’s they guy I know and love.
At 21h00 Steve arrives at Sam’s office to find it vacated. The telephone rings and Steve picks up.
Voice: You need to walk away.
Steve: Who is this? Where’s Sam?
Voice: Agent Conners doesn’t exist. The casket in Cambodia, doesn’t exist.
Steve: You think making an agent disappear and cleaning up that mess, in that field, is gonna stop me?
