Ace in the Hole

Plot[edit | edit source]
Kell wakes up to see himself locked in an interrogation room with Legrand. Legrand accuses Kell of a terrorist attack (likely of an event involving EU and APA leaders) without his knowledge, but Kell denies his involvement. He argued Legrand would have also easily blamed Zhao, who survived the attack.
Legrand hopes such an event would start an all-out war between the EU and the APA, and wants Kell to be his "ace in the hole" in winning such a war. Legrand then orders his guards to release Kell.

Transcript[edit | edit source]
Kell wakes up tied to a chair in a darkened room, seeing Legrand in front of him.
Jarmen Kell: Why do you hold me prisoner?! Have I not honored our agreement?
Pierre Legrand: Honor you say? You should have warned me that you are going to attack Pax Globeurs (??). I was supposed to be there!... or was that your intent?
Jarmen Kell: I had not part in that.
Pierre Legrand: If it wasn't you and it wasn't me, then who was it?!
Jarmen Kell: You were more than ready to blame Zhao.
Pierre Legrand: Don't be foolish, Zhao was lucky not to be killed in the blast. That was propping on the... the thrust, and opening to start a war. A war in which they, the APA, would appear to be the antagonists. A war that you will to help me win!
Jarmen Kell: Am I your prisoner?
Pierre Legrand: No Kell, you are my - how do you say? - my ace in the hole.
Legrand turns to his guards before leaving.
Pierre Legrand: Free him.
