Doug's car is found abandoned by the perimeter by Travis the following morning, and Lieutenant Moyers reveals that Doug was found by the soldiers, crying in his car and then he was taken into custody, due to Moyers believing he is a "nutcase".


While Doug is in the medical facility, Doug meets a man named Victor Strand. Strand decides to taunt Doug.
