Back in Austria, the gunman in the hallway enters the file room behind Anna and fires his gun. She narrowly evades being shot and Felicia comes to her aid. Anna and Felicia then hold the man at gunpoint. They attempt to interrogate him but he bites a cyanide tablet and dies. Anna and Felicia agree that if this man was willing to die for his involvement in this operation rather than face Victor’s wrath, then it is clear that whatever Victor is involved in is a lot bigger than just a personal vendetta against Luke.
