Bam, she’s the leak.
At the port, Jack refuses to move out with his friend Carl, who he said he would protect. He can’t let anyone else die because of his actions. One of the men he’s supposed to meet leads off Carl to be executed, but Jack saves him despite Tony’s protests. Time for plan B, which is steal the truck. The dead executioner is found and Tony and Jack open fire. Jack jumps on the truck and prepares to drive away when he hears Tony has been caught.
