In the present day, Jackson tells Flynn that the scar on his arm matches those of other Hunter victims, like Jules Callaway. But why was Flynn spared? The other survivor of the Afghanistan ambush, Robert Brecke, may have the answers.
After Briggs gives Regan a hard time for failing to capture Viktor Karp or any of his associates, Regan confronts him about him capturing her father for Finnerman. She suggests they settle this "girl to girl." Regan!
After intercepting the call Emme made to Flynn, Regan investigates and tries to make Emme hand over the files. And Emme shoots her! Damn! She almost immediately apologizes, though, and Regan's like, "Whatever."
Flynn asks Brecke what he remembers about what happened to them in Afghanistan. Brecke tells him that Flynn was the only one the Hunters pulled out of the pit, and when he returned, he was somehow different ... and proceeded to kill his buddies. That can't be true ... can it?
As Brecke plays with his kids in the yard, his wife Katie tells Flynn about how much he's opened up since "the accident." Apparently, Brecke drove off the road coming home late from work one night and was gone for two weeks; when he returned, he was "like a whole new man." Uh-oh ... HUNTER ALERT.
Flynn manages to call Jackson after he accepts Brecke's invitation to stay for dinner.
Briggs secures Brecke's house and finds his two boys crying over the body of their dead mother. They tell him that it wasn't a monster that did this but their own dad. Sometimes dads are monsters and monsters are dads, kids.
Flynn finally overtakes Brecke and beats the crap out of him on behalf of his fallen war buddies. Unfortunately, he never manages to find out why Musa spared his life that horrible night in Afghanistan.
